This call for panels is aimed at academic and industry consortia, research projects, think tanks and other research organisations.
We welcome cutting edge panels in all areas related to:
IoT technology, research, and innovation;
Economic, market and societal challenges for the IoT;
IoT security and privacy;
IoT and sustainable development.
This year’s main theme is IoT and sustainable development so we especially welcome panel proposals that fit this theme. We encourage panels that are well-balanced, multidisciplinary and geographically and gender diverse. More information about rules for panel composition and submission can be found here.
Please note: chosen institutions, organisations or research projects will become IoT Week event partners. This implies that the event partner is able to finance all costs of the panel speakers (transport and lodging). In return, the event partner’s logo will be visibly displayed on the IoT Week website.
Please fill in and submit your proposal before 20th December 2016.

RULES ON PANEL SUBMISSION AND COMPOSITION
Please ensure you can ensure the participation of all panel speakers, including chairs. Each speaker is expected to cover a regular registration fee, or alternatively, their fees and costs should be reimbursed by the panel organizer when submitted by a third party.
By default a panel has 1 chair in charge of moderating the sessions and 3 to 5 speakers. If you would like to propose an alternative format, please let us know.
The IoT Week organizing committee reserves the right to choose the moderator and/or to adapt the session structure and composition.
The organising institute cannot have more than 2 participants on the panel.
Panels should be finished, (or very nearly finished) by 1st March. If a panel is still problematic at this point, CPDP reserves the right to step in and take over.
If these rules are not followed, CPDP reserves the right to step in and address any issues.
