The 2nd Annual Internet of Things Global Summit will take place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC from October 27th to the 28th.

Summary:
The digital transformation of global economies continues, driven by the demand for innovation alongside economic imperatives such as cost reduction and globalization. The Internet of Things is central to this disruption of traditional economic activities, with companies everywhere increasingly realizing its potential to deliver innovative new services and solutions, and to address issues such as climate change, job creation and growth, better healthcare and more efficient transport systems to name a few.
A number of challenges remain however. Allowing innovation to flourish while protecting privacy and data remains a fundamental regulatory balancing act, as does the delivery of networks that provide the required internet bandwidth both inside and outside of large urban centres. The issues of raising the initial finance for new products and services, and then creating awareness and achieving buy-in from consumers - whether citizens, businesses or the public sector - continue to also present challenges and barriers to be overcome.
Focusing on the role of the public and private sectors as well as of the citizen, this event will look at what needs to be done to tackle these key challenges; to develop the required standards; and crucially to deliver an environment to drive IoT forward and ensure its full potential is met.
By examining the current IoT ecosystem and the emerging technologies appearing on the market, it will ultimately deliver turnkey information to the IoT community as the drive for a more efficient, more inclusive and smarter world continues.

2.7.2014, Birmingham - ESIOT - INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON EXTENDING SEAMLESSLY TO THE INTERNET OF THINGS

Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT) is an international workshop focused on the integration aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT). The emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) systems should provide transparent access to information and services through a seamless integration into the Internet. On the one hand, the so-called Web of Things aims for direct Web connectivity by pushing its technology down to devices. On the other hand, cost and energy requirements of embedded devices demand efficient protocols and communication patterns, which affect the application layer. This workshop provides a forum to elaborate on ideas and approaches to adapt, extend, or bridge the existing IoT building blocks, such as ETSI M2M, ZigBee, IPv6/6LoWPAN, RFID, and legacy networked embedded systems. In addition, the impact of the IoT on industry, business, and society, including security and privacy requirements, will be discussed.

The latest advances in communication technologies such as wireless sensor networks, radio identification and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices are fuelling a new communication paradigm - The Internet of Things (IoT). IoT carries us into a new ubiquitous computing and communication era, allowing the creation of entirely new application in a wide variety of fields like e-health or intelligent transportation.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is new paradigm which envisions a future network of dozen billions the things communicating with each other and with people. With all objects of daily living connected to Internet, the way we live in our community will be radically transformed. Scientific community, industry, and governments are paying an increasing attention to IoT, recognizing its importance in the future Internet.
