LEARN MORE ABOUT The Second Workshop on Internet of Things

The Second Workshop on Internet of Things will be held jointly with Data2018 Conference, Madrid, Spain.


The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020.

Cybercurrencies and Blockchain (fiction, fallacy, fact, fun, and future)

Hardly a day goes by without a news story about Bitcoin or Ethereum, two of the best known and strongest cybercurrency technologies. Opinions run the spectrum, from those who view it as mainly a monetary vehicle for criminal activity to those who praise its empowering ability for individuals disenfranchised by traditional financial systems. In between are found those who see it as the foundation for a new economy. Everyone agrees that one of the most important legacies of cybercurrency technologies is the introduction of the Blockchain ecosystem. As a network of replicated databases, Blockchain has been proposed to address integrity issues of numerous systems other than cybercurrencies. This lecture will explain the fundamentals behind the important cybercurrencies, including Blockchain concepts and the mining process. It will also address why, in the opinion of the speaker, these systems should be taken seriously and how they have initiated important discussions, applications, and research opportunities.

09:30 - 10:30 Dr. DAVE WEST
Building High Performance Teams With Scrum

Abstract: Software is created by teams and teams of teams. Thus creating high performance teams is the holy grail of software development process improvement. But what does high performance really mean? In this talk Dave West Product Owner Scrum.org and former Forrester Analyst talks about how Scrum has become the most popular Agile approach and how it can help organizations build high performance teams using Scrum to bring everyone together in a simple, light weight framework. He describes the genesis of Scrum, and how organizations are employing Scrum at the team and product level. He will introduce the idea of professional Scrum and how the mechanics of Scrum combined with technical excellence and pursuit of the Scrum values enables organizations to transform their delivery teams. He will highlight where Scrum makes sense and where it does not.



All submitted papers will be under peer review and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding. The abstracts will be indexed and available at major academic databases.
