Companies mentioned in this article: The IEEE Standards Association

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- IEEE, the world's largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, announced today that the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) will host an Internet of Things Workshop, 18-19 September 2014 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif. This two-day event will provide an open, engaging platform to discuss opportunities, impacts and challenges around the convergence of technologies known as Internet of Things (IoT), with a special focus on the need for more interdisciplinary approaches to the design of products and services for IoT markets.

“From smart cities to smart homes to eHealth to cleaner transportation, standardization in IoT will provide economic opportunity to these areas and many more by increasing interoperability and fueling the economy of scale. IEEE-SA is one of the driving forces behind IoT standardization and will continue to contribute to the advancing of IoT by participating and hosting of IoT workshops, events and projects,” said Oleg Logvinov, chair of the workshop planning committee and director, special assignments, Industrial and Power Conversion Division, STMicroelectronics. “The IEEE-SA IoT Workshop is a great venue for this collaboration. Here experts will gather to discuss technical and business challenges and opportunities, and how standards development will help shaping the future of IoT.”

Highlights of the agenda include a panel discussion on IoT and security led by Ed Sperling of Low-Power Engineering, a keynote discussing whether IoT brings value to the consumer from Stacey Higginbotham of GigaOM; a panel led by Serge Leef of Mentor Graphics on IoT and go-to-market strategies; a keynote on IEEE P2413TM, IEEE Standard for an Architectural Framework for the Internet of Things, a panel on IEEE standards that bring value to the IoT, and an analyst view of IoT by Michael Palma of IDC.

Oleg Logvinov will also take stage at Cisco’s Internet of Things World Forum 14-16 October 2014, Chicago, Illinois. At this IEEE-SA sponsored event, Oleg will be presenting in a breakout session titled “Standards: Breaking Down the Cross-Vertical Barriers” on Wednesday, 15 October, 11:15 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The breakout session will provide an opportunity to share the results of the ecosystem study on IoT standards conducted by the IEEE-SA and provide real-life examples of IoT applications across verticals.

IoT is a valuable, innovative technology that brings many benefits to industry and the public. IEEE-SA has a number of standards, projects and events that are directly related to creating the environment needed for a vibrant IoT.
