Internet of Things (IoT) Summit:

During the last decade the Internet of Things (IoT) has seen tremendous investments and accelerating adoption. The Multi-Society IEEE IoT Initiative has worked with each of the 20 sponsoring Societies and Councils to develop deep dive events that bring together industry, the public sector, and the research community, focused on a specific subject. This year the IEEE IoT Summit in conjunction with RWW2019 in Orlando will be exploring the synergies between IoT and IoS. The Summit is a day and a half event beginning on Sunday January 20th and concluding on Monday January 21st, 2019. We urge you to join us and participate if you have an interest in either IoS or IoT. Please visit http://rww2019.iot.ieee.org/ for up to date information on the event.


Invited Talks:

  • "Using SiGe Technology in Space Systems: Past, Present, and Future", John D. Cressler, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • "Radar mmWave-ICs from a system's perspective", Christian Waldschmidt, Ulm University


Student Paper Contest:

20 finalists from around the world will present in the Student Paper Competition at RWW2019.
