IEEE 4th World Forum on Internet of Things – Technical Program Overview

Start Date:1/17/2018

Start Time:3:00 PM SGT

Duration:60 minutes


The 4th IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things is the premier IEEE Forum for the Internet of Things, where attendees from research institutes, academia, industry and governments share knowledge, expertise and experiences on technologies, applications, economic impact, and social implications. IoT industry leaders, academics, professionals, government officials and students foster knowledge exchange, network with innovators, develop careers, and promote entrepreneurship in the IoT realm with its emerging technologies and application areas. 

The 2018 conference theme is Smart Cities & Nations, focusing on the vision of a highly connected society, where humans and objects are enabled to interact with each other, providing new services for Smart Cities and citizens. This integration allows intelligent systems to improve our daily lives with emerging innovative digital ecosystems. Learn more about the innovations that will impact research and real-world applications and transform our world.
