3rd Future IoT PhD School 2020 – IoT meets Cybersecurity

CORONA UPDATE: To date we expect our school t ohappen Oct 5-9 2020.

You can register here.

“IoT meets Security” in Strasbourg is the 3rd edition of the Future IoT PhD school series. It follows “IoT meets Industry (2018, St Malo)” and “IoT meets AI (2019, Munich)”.

The Internet of Things (IoT) connects a plethora of devices. It allows programmers to interact with the physical environment. This brings many fascinating challenges and opportunities but also risks.

In our summer school we will introduce you to the fascinating world of the Industrial Internet of Things, the IoT that makes factories run. You will learn about many different aspects from device manufacturing over communication protocol and semantics to application management.

This year’s edition has the title “Making the IoT secure”. Besides interoperability, security is a central challenge for today’s IoT. Imagine a robot going crazy and killing workers, or a car doing mass surveillance and sharing information about the people in its neighbourhood to remote storages. We will discover attacks and protection mechanisms together with you not only theoretical but hands on in the challenges provided directly from the factories and research labs of our industrial partners!

The Future IoT summer school offers an appealing mix of lectures, hands-on tutorial, and hackathon challenges. There is also a lot of room for getting to know each other, networking, and exploring our hosting city!

The organizers come from the best institutions in France and Germany, the Institut Mines Telecom (IMT) Atlantique and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Our partners are the most relevant companies in the field that might become your future employers.

Venue

An important part of the Future IoT concept is also that you get to know the location of our school. Strasbourg is your place to be 8.6.2020-12.6.2020!

The European capital city

Strasbourg is a pioneer in cross-border cooperation and is located at the heart of the Eurodistrict, which promotes Franco-German partnerships and projects in transport, urban planning, education or health. The city is the seat of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights and the European Parliament. It hosts the headquarters of many other European organisations including Eurocorps, the European Pharmacopoeia, Arte (Franco-German cultural TV channel) as well as 30 consulates and 46 embassies.

A rich historical and architectural heritage

Strasbourg’s historical city centre is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Commercial and cultural exchanges throughout history have endowed Strasbourg with a rich and well-preserved architectural heritage, including its monumental cathedral, the typical medieval district of Petite France or the 19th century German imperial district.

The Engineering science, computer science and imaging laboratory

Created in 2013, the laboratory brings together researchers of the University of Strasbourg, the CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research), the ENGEES and the INSA of Strasbourg in the fields of engineering science and computer science, with imaging as the unifying theme.

With around 650 members, ICube is a major driving force for research in Strasbourg whose main areas of application are biomedical engineering and the sustainable development.
