Internet Of Things 2025

University of California Irvine (UCI) and Tel Aviv University (TAU) are proud to initiate the 4th annual UCI/TAU workshop that will be dedicated to the Internet of Things. The workshop mission is to present and discuss the issues involved in higher education of engineers and scientists and how the interfacing technologies will transform innovation through Internet of Things in 2025.

By 2025, the world’s population is projected to exceed 8 billion. More than one in two persons will live in urban areas, doubling the number of megacities with population over 20 million. During this time we will have more than 50 billion things connected to the internet. These things will consist of everything from light bulbs to wearable devices that monitor your health constantly. This connectivity will dramatically change the way we live, work, and play. This conference will discuss the challenges in the current field and the transformation of available technologies.

This fourth international meeting will host scientists, industrialists and entrepreneurs to exchange expert insights on open issues related to the theme of the meeting, while exposing participants to state-of-the-art research in the field. The meeting will strengthen existing partnerships and enable new international partnerships on bi-national and multi-national research collaborations in internet of things technologies.The conference will specifically focus on: Big Data and Visualization, Communications and Security, and Sensors and Systems. There will be also an Industry Leadership Panel to lead the discussion on disruptive technologies.

Last but not least is the question “Why UCI and TAU?”. The answer is simple: both universities excel in science and technology education, cover all fields and promote strong interdepartmental interaction. UCI enjoys the southern California economical climate and neighborhood and a long tradition focusing on information technology. TAU is a much younger institute; nevertheless, it has educated a large number of scientists and engineers with an excellent STEM education system making Israel the “start up nation”. Both institutes believe that the mission of the faculty and staff members is to lecture, teach and educate the best possible scientists and engineers giving them also common sense and social responsively.
