Internet of Things Conference

The term "Internet of Things" has come to describe a number of technologies and research disciplines that enable the Internet to reach out into the real world of physical objects. Technologies like RFID, short-range wireless communications, real-time localization and sensor networks are now becoming increasingly common, bringing the Internet of Things into commercial use. They foreshadow an exciting future that closely interlinks the physical world and cyberspace - a development that is not only relevant to researchers, but to corporations and individuals alike.

The 2008 Internet of Things conference held in Zurich was the first to bring leading researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry together to facilitate sharing of applications, research results, and knowledge. The three-day event features keynotes from industrial and academic visionaries, technical presentations of cutting-edge research, reports on the user-experience from seasoned practitioners, and hands-on demos of current technology.
