The event will be held on February 18, 2014 in Geneva and is geared towards IoT application developers, operators, and policy makers, as well as government and university representatives.

The agenda for the workshop includes discussions about the international standards for M2M, business models and the latest in academic research on IoT.

Opportunities are still available for industry, government, research institutes and academic representatives to showcase IoT material whether concepts or applications. Interested parties should contact tsbworkshops@itu.int as soon as possible.
