Industrial IoT IEEE CAS Seasonal School - Enabling CAS Technologies for Industrial IoT at the Core of Industry 4.0

13 Dicembre 2018

13 – 14 December, 2018

Dipartimento Ingegneria della Informazione (DII),

Aula Magna, University of Pisa, Via G. Caruso 16, 56122, Pisa, Italy








This seasonal school offers lessons in the field of circuit and systems (CAS) for the emerging topic of Industrial Internet of Things (I2oT), which is at the core of the industry 4.0 revolution. The uniqueness of this school vs. other schools on IoT will be that (1) the focus is on industrial applications (CAS solutions for logistics and digital supply-chain, product/process digitization, healthcare, automotive and intelligent transport systems) and (2) beside lectures from IEEE DLs and Fellows, the seasonal school includes industry speakers, operating in the CAS domain, from Intel, Keysight, STMicroelectronics, IngeniArs, Dyson, Quantavis, Free-space, IDS, Cubit, Sofidel, Calearo. Lessons will be offered in English.
