We have invited as panelists, IoT experts from academia and the industry to organise two exciting panels at IoT 2022 with a hybrid format. The panelists will join us online, while the panel discussion will be locally moderated by an expert physically present. The panels will only be available to attendees that are physically present at IoT 2022.

Panel #1: IoT Applications (Nov. 8, 2022)

Panelist: Dr. Paul Baumann (Siemens). As Global Head of Product Management Data Analytics at Siemens Digital Buildings, Dr. Paul Baumann‘s mission is to make buildings smart and autonomous by utilizing the data they generate. Prior to his current position, Paul worked as a Product Manager for IoT devices and building automation. He holds a Ph.D. from TU Dresden in Data Analytics and an M.Sc. in Computer Science from TU Darmstadt, Germany. 
Panelist: Bart Schouwenaars-Harms (Amazon) is a founding member of AWS Industry Products, which was created to develop products and services for new verticals and industries, helping to reduce complexity and expertise required to build and operate modern digital industries on AWS. Simply put, it is to use the skill and scale of AWS to make the benefits of a connected world achievable for all businesses. Before joining AWS Bart was responsible for automation in Amazon’s EMEA Fulfilment centres. His background is in electrical and mechanical engineering, having worked for major food manufacturers before joining Amazon.
Panelist: Stefan Wellsandt (BIBA) works as a research associate at the institute for production and logistics in Bremen, Germany. His background is in industrial and mechanical engineering. Over the last ten years, he acquired expertise in information management and computer science, while working in various international and inter-disciplinary research projects. Stefan currently coordinates the Horizon 2020 research project COALA. Its goal is to build and test trustworthy, voice-enabled digital assistants for manufacturing.

Panel Moderator: Prof. Dr. Gerd Kortuem (TU Delft) is professor of Internet of Things at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. His research centres on the intersection of the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Design, and explores how data, algorithms, and smart materials can be turned into creative design materials. This covers foundational technologies, design methods, ethical issues and the dynamics of large-scale, multi-stakeholder projects where designers have to deal with tensions between commercial and societal concerns.

Panel #2: IoT Security (Nov. 9, 2022)

Panelist: Prof. Dr. Jean Camp (Indiana University Bloomington) is Professor at Indiana University with appointments in Informatics and Computer Science. She is a Fellow of the AAAS (2017), the IEEE (2018), and the ACM (2021). She joined Indiana after eight years at Harvard’s Kennedy School. A year after earning her doctorate from Carnegie Mellon she served as a Senior Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories. She began her career as an engineer at Catawba Nuclear Station after a double major in electrical engineering and mathematics, followed by a MSEE in optoelectronics at University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Panelist: Dr. Hamed Haddadi (Imperial College London) is a Reader (Associate Professor) in Human-Centred Systems at the Department of Computing, and a Security Science Fellow of the Institute for Security Science and Technology, at Imperial College London. In his industrial role, he is the Chief Scientist at Brave Software where he works on developing privacy-preserving analytics protocols. He is interested in User-Centred Systems, IoT, Applied Machine Learning, and Data Security & Privacy. He enjoys designing and building systems that enable better use of our digital footprint, while respecting users’ privacy.
Panelist: Ben Kokx (Philips) has over twenty years of security and privacy experience within Philips. For the last decade, as Directory Product Security, he is responsible for security related standards & regulations and the global Philips Product Security Policy and Process Framework. Ben is a healthcare and IoT security expert who leads and participates in several industry associations and standard development organizations. Ben is, as the convenor of CEN/CENELEC JTC 13/WG 6 on product security, closely involved with the development of security standards to be used in European legislation.

Panel Moderator: Harold Weffers holds an M.Sc. in Computer Science and an Eng.D in Software Technology and has over 25 year experience in system and software engineering in the context of R&D and (technological) innovation in industry. He is currently Coordinator External Partnerships of Eindhoven University of Technology, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science as well as program manager in the context of the national INTERSECT public-private partnership on cyber security of Internet-of-Things. He is also a member of the NEN norm committee on system and software engineering, a member of the NEN norm committee on cyber security & privacy, and a member of the NEN working group on IoT Product Security.
