Summer School on the Internet of Things, 27-30 October 2015, Italy

Publish Date: Oct 02, 2015

Deadline: Oct 20, 2015

Event Dates: from Oct 27, 2015 12:00 to Oct 30, 2015 12:00

In the last decade the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm has slowly but steadily and increasingly permeated what researchers and engineers study and build. However, a ‘Killer’ IoT application is still missing so far. The IoT-360° Summer School will demonstrate what it takes to deliver an IoT-based product from scratch. To do so, the School will be divided into two strongly coupled parts.

The first part consists of lectures and tutorials, as well as a panel discussion where School participants will gain relevant knowledge and development skills. Based on the last year School success and feedback the lectures are upgraded with the topics on power and connectivity related challenges, as well as more detailed tutorial on hands-on will be provided. During the second part the school participants grouped in teams will implement their own IoT projects relying on knowledge gained during the School and on IoT hardware/software that will be made available. Finally, for the attendees, there will be a chance to “pitch and sell” their projects developed during the “IoT Hackathon”.


  • (post)(under) graduate students – we grant CREDITS!
  • Post Doctoral Fellows
  • Academic Professionals
  • Research Scientists and Engineers
  • All those who wish to be introduced and apply IoT in their professional/amateur projects


  • Demonstrate what it takes to deliver an IoT product from scratch
  • Survey the most relevant research domains
  • Get in touch with IoT (hands-on)
  • Interact with distinguished scholars and world-known experts


The technology track, meant to shed more light over the actual steps taken by different people / organisations to capitalise on what the Internet of Things can deliver. In the various sessions there will be talks and discussion panels from various industry sectors representatives, gathering views on IoT innovation from big organisations and SMEs, comparing and contrasting experiences from companies selling horizontal and vertical solutions, sharing hot topics from the makers community and standardisation bodies, concluding with an overview on privacy and societal implications of IoT.


People networking to build together the internet of things.
The Community track is the instrument to meet people, companies and organizations. This session brings together such actors to share research plans, kick-start initiatives, formulates new projects and make business.
Agile one to one meetings among users facilitate a coral development of the EAI internet of things community.


The Innovation track will deal with the aspects of taking an idea to market, following through the commercialization process, from idea development all the way through funding. This track will take the participants through the basic steps of how to evaluate an idea, how to assess the IPR readiness of such idea from protection and validity and than through panel and discussions to better prepare the audience for funding readiness.

Come and learn how to assess and take your IoT project from an idea to a fully deployed commercial markets.
