Workshop Program

Like in the last years, the IoT-ASAP program is planned to be very interactive, with some paper presentations and a big focus on break-out sessions. A keynote addressing the key topics of the workshop will provide a good basis for discussions. The program plans to attract both academics and practitioners.

Challenges for Future IoT Applications

Slides available here: IoT-ASAP 2019 Keynote

Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a socio-technical phenomenon with the power to disrupt our society such as the Internet before. IoT promises the (inter-) connection of myriad of things providing new services to humans and machines. It is expected that by the end of 2020 tens of billions of things will be deployed worldwide that communicate and send data to various applications which run in the cloud. Although this trend enables a large number of useful IoT applications it also poses significant challenges on their design, development, verification, management and operation as we are more and more relying on a connected world. In this keynote, I will give an overview of IoT applications provided by Bosch and talk about the main challenges for practitioners in industry in the design, development, verification and operation of these distributed applications. I will conclude my talk by pointing out interesting topics for future research to address these challenges.
