BIS’2017 – Full day working session on “Scaling up for the IoT” – 9 June 2017

Sutardja Dai Hall (SDH) Building, Meeting room 368

This full day working session brings together -but not only- researchers involved in the Inria@SiliconValley theme “Computing & Communication for the Future Internet“. The session is a follow-up to the US-Europe Workshop on Next-Generation Internet of Things, organized in Spring 2016 by  The Ming Hsieh Institute in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California in collaboration with Inria@SiliconValley.



The IoT is expected to play a major role in the next industrial revolution. By bridging the physical, digital, cyber and virtual worlds, the IoT paves the way for innovative multi-purpose and collaborative applications interacting across industry sectors, organizations and people. However, for the IoT to reach its full potential, numerous scientific and technology challenges remain.

This full day working session concentrates on  research challenges emphasizing the scale issue, which is not solely concerned by the ultra large volume of things and data involved but also their diversity.

The session first gathers the scale-related challenges faced and addressed by the participants to then exchange about possible joint effort toward cross-fertilization of the ongoing research.
