Future-IoT 2020: We say thank you!

Virtual participant group of Future-IoT 2020: IoT meets Security

Future-IoT 2020 was a full success. With 8 keynotes, 3 poster sessions, 1 lab tour, 1 panel, 1 discussion round, 2 Turing award winners, and 1 city-tour, we had a program full of highlights. And the program was well-received. With up to 80 participants, we reached quite some audience in the keynotes. The more than 30 pro-participants enjoyed quite some extra program with the poster sessions, the city tour, the panel on the Internet featuring Turing award winner Vint Cerf, and the group discussion on Ethics featuring Turing award winner Martin Hellmann.

From the organizer perspective, the biggest challenge was involving the participants in discussions, and enabling exchange and networking. All hopes became true: The poster sessions enabled networking, and gave insights in The program reflected what we wanted to communicate and the participants were just wonderful!

The 3rd Future-IoT 2020: IoT meets Security was over way too fast. We use the resumée to say THANK YOU!
