The Internet of things (IoT) is the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles (also referred to as “connected devices” and “smart devices”), buildings, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to collect and exchange data.

Addressing cybersecurity of the Internet of Things this conference is a direct partnership with the PETRAS Research Hub, a consortium of nine leading UK universities working together to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security and IoTUK, a national programme designed to accelerate the UK’s Internet of Things (IoT) capability, launched as part of the Government’s £32m investment in IoT.

This inaugural conference will provide insight into how society can benefit from the power of interconnected devices (the IoT) while remaining safe, secure and resilient.

The event programme incorporates keynote plenary talks, interactive panel discussions, technical paper presentations, poster displays, industry exhibition, workshops, seminars and demonstrations workshops.

The IoTUK exhibition and forum will be held in conjunction with the Living in the Internet of Things main conference. With representatives from all IoTUK Programme: PETRAS academics, the NHS IoT Testbeds, Manchester’s CityVerve smart city initiative, the Hardware Accelerators – Startupbootcamp and R/GA Ventures and from Digital Catapult as well as speakers from leading industry PETRAS partners, expect engaging panel discussions as well as an opportunity to learn more about the work of the IoTUK programme.

All delegates will also gain access to the IoTUK exhibition and forum which will focus on how the internet of things is changing the world around us: how citizens are responding to the IoT deployments in smart cities, how complex ecosystems are being created which combine business, academia and the public sector to deploy IoT technology; considerations around privacy, security, risk and trust in IoT and more. There will also be an opportunity to network with key players in the IoT industry.

All attendees of the Living in the IoT conference can attend the IoTUK exhibition and forum.
