Additionally, workshops provide critical insights, Industry Forums address business-related IoT issues, Tutorials offer technical knowledge, with Prof. Luís Correia, one of the chairs, providing detailed insights into key IoT technologies. Vertical and Topical Tracks explore practical IoT implementation, and Forums like Women in Engineering (WIE) and Young and Professionals (YP) foster inclusivity, creating a space for networking and knowledge sharing among diverse groups. The Entrepreneurial Forum promotes interaction among startups, incubators, and venture capitalists, a catalyst for the growth of successful IoT ventures.
INOV – INESC Inovação’s pivotal role is evident in the Technical Program Committee, where Augusto Casaca, representing INESC-ID/INOV INESC INOVAÇÃO in Lisbon, Portugal, serves as a Committee Chair, alongside experts from the USA and Singapore. INOV extends its influence to technical sessions with a strong emphasis on security and privacy.
Notably, Technical Session 13, themed “Security and Privacy: Applications Security,” is chaired and moderated by Ruei-Hau (Richard) Hsu from the National Sun Yat-sen University in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. This session features a series of cutting-edge papers, including INOV’s collaborative effort in “Calculating Business Impact Assessment of Cyber-Threats,” jointly authored by INOV INESC INOVAÇÃO in Lisbon, Portugal, and INESC-ID in Lisbon, Portugal.
Moreover, Technical Session 14, focusing on “Security and Privacy: Cryptography and Authentication,” sees Nelson Escravana from INOV INESC INOVAÇÃO in Lisbon, Portugal, serving as Chair and Moderator. These significant contributions emphasize INOV – INESC Inovação’s dedication to advancing IoT technologies, particularly in the realm of security and privacy.
In addition to these contributions, Prof. Luís Correia, a key figure, plays a central role as one of the chairs of the Tutorials, offering a deeper understanding of essential IoT technologies. Prof. António Grilo, an INOV collaborator, co-chairs the PhD Forum, fostering the development of future IoT leaders.
The presence of experts from diverse institutions and locations mirrors the global nature of the IoT community. INOV – INESC Inovação’s active participation underscores its commitment to advancing IoT technologies and its role in an international collaboration.
IEEE WFIoT2023 continues until October 27th, offering a longer window for global engagement. INOV – INESC Inovação remains a cornerstone of innovation and research in the IoT domain. Whether in Aveiro or online, you can be a part of the 9th IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things!
