IoT Sensors Challenges: Joint NIST/IEEE-SC Workshop on Security, Privacy, and Interoperability

The IEEE Sensors Council and NIST will host a one-day workshop on Internet of Things (IoT) standards, harmonization, interoperability, policy, sensors, and cybersecurity. The agenda is designed to include invited speakers, panels, and breakout sessions to discuss the intersection of these issues and identify gaps with opportunities for collaboration through IEEE and NIST.  To highlight the need for overcoming these gaps, one panel session will focus on the current challenges within the healthcare market sector.  The breakout sessions will dive deeper into specific topics including security and privacy, interoperability and standardization, smart grid and smart city applications. The output will be a Workshop report that captures the presentations, panels, and recommended action items moving forward on this important array of IoT security and sensors
