Professor De Roure Chairs Living in the Internet of Things Conference

Living in the Internet of Things: A PETRAS, IoTUK & IET Conference, Forum & Exhibition took place from 28-29 March in London, with Professor David De Roure as Conference Chair.

The conference, one of the activities of the PETRAS Research Hub, was organised by PETRAS, IET and IoTUK. The PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub is a consortium of nine leading UK universities working together over the next three years to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security.

Conference Chair Professor David De Roure chaired the academic track of the conference, which had around 200 delegates. An industry track with 250 participants was run by IoTUK.  The two sections joined together for the closing panel focused on The Future of the Internet of Things. The panellists were Bill Thompson, Principal Research Engineer & Technology Writer, BBC, Pilgrim Beart, CEO of DevicePilot, Louisa-Jayne O'Neill, Vice Chairman of the Information Assurance Advisory Council and Dr Steve Allpress, entrepreneur and Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow.

The conference received 79 submissions, many of which appeared in the conference as full papers for oral presentation in two parallel tracks, with a further 15 for poster presentation.  Some of the Oxford papers and posters relating to the conference are:
