Computers processors have been leaving offices and become more and more embedded into everyday objects. Enhanced with sensors and networked via wireless connections, these computerized objects allow new fields of application, such as smart homes and remote health monitoring.
The IEEE/ICE Summer School on Networked Embedded Systems features research-oriented lectures on selected topics in this emerging area. Being part of the Erasmus Mundus PhD program Interactive and Cognitive Environments (ICE), it takes place in Klagenfurt from September 3-7 and is open to the public upon registration.
Speakers include, among others, Ian F. Akyildiz (Georgia Tech) on nano networks, Andrea Cavallaro (QMUL) on camera networks, Carlo Regazzoni (Genova) on data fusion, and Kay Römer (Lübeck) on sensor networks. A dinner talk is given by Infineon Austria CTO Reinhard Petschacher. The event is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE. The social event includes a hiking tour.
