enCOMPASS at the Global Internet of Things Summit’17

Global IoT Summit

The 1st Global Internet of Thing Summit (GIoTS 2017) will take place from the 6th to the 9th of June this year in Geneva, Switzerland. Co-located with 2017 IoT Week organized by the IoT Forum.

enCOMPASS will be there presenting a new paper “enCOMPASS – an Integrative Approach to Behavioural Change for Energy Saving”, We will discuss the research objectives of the enCOMPASS project, which aims at implementing and validating an integrated socio-technical approach to behavioural change for energy saving. We will talk about the innovative user-friendly digital tools that will be developed to:

1) make energy data consumption available and understandable for different types of users and stakeholders (household residents, office employees, school pupils, building managers, utilities, ICT providers)

2) empower them to collaborate in order to achieve energy savings and manage their energy needs in efficient, cost-effective and comfort-preserving ways.

And We will show how this can be achieved with a novel approach that integrates user-centered visualization of energy data from smart sensors and user-generated information with context-aware collaborative recommendations for energy saving, intelligent control and adaptive gamified incentives enabling effective and sustained behavioural change.

GIoTS-2017 discusses the recent advances in Internet of Things and the feasibility of extending IoT, including wireless sensor network technology, to become truly ubiquitous with new Cloud computing technologies, Big data analysis, citizen engagement and Governance. It aims to encourage innovative cross-domain studies that address the challenges of IoT, including emerging and disruptive technologies, and prospective analysis.

The Internet, network of networks, over the years, provided the core backbone for connectivity. The Internet has been a revolutionary technology to an extent that any devices ”things” can be connected and be accessible and controlled from any corners of the world. This has given rise to the Internet of Things (IoT). The mission is to enable communication, and computation enabled devices on different networks to be able talk to each other using a common protocol. This will allow new and smart devices to be added to the Internet infrastructure.

There are several challenges in terms of turning the vision of IoT into reality. This includes architecture, communication, services, computational intelligence, storage, governance apart from core areas of sensor development and material engineering. This conference brings together researchers from diversely cross-disciplinary areas to address challenges in the emerging discipline.
