IEEE Seasonal School on Circuits and Systems for IoT 

5-9 August 2019
Instituto de Informatica, UFRGS
Campus do Vale
Porto Alegre, Brazil
 

Free Registration - Open now!

The First IEEE Seasonal School on Circuits and Systems for IoT aims to offer a set of talks on key topics related to circuits and Systems for IoT in modern and upcoming technologies. This seasonal school is an initiative of the IEEE CASS SiG on IoT. The SiG on IoT decided to start a series of seasonal schools on IoT, each year in a different location around the world. It was also decided to do the first edition in Porto Alegre, Brazil. 
 
The seasonal school should represent current and future challenges that are faced by industry and academia for the implementation of ever more complex circuits and systems for IoT. It is wanted to promote discussion on hot topics and cover fundamental circuits and systems, so that the attendance can leverage their comprehension and capabilities, while also motivating students, researchers, and professionals to find solutions for the IoT world. The courses will be given by prominent international researchers with extensive expertise in their fields, including also some talks from the industry.
 
This edition is sponsored/supported by IEEE CASS, IEEE CEDA and ACM SIGDA and is organized by UFRGS.
