International Workshop on Weightless Machine Communications (weM2M) - 25 April 2014, London, UK

This one-day workshop (co-organised by Dr Yue (Frank) Gao) will provide good opportunities to learn the first-hand development and demonstration of the Weightless M2M via a number of keynote speakers from both industry and academia to address application layer, physical layer, security and regulations. A panel discussion will be held to discuss how to enable real benefits to build strong partnerships between academics and companies to tackle the future challenge of M2M and IoT research and development. To create more interactions between industry and academic, a poster and demo session will be held during the coffee break and lunchtime. The overall objective of this workshop is to bring various state-of-the-art research activities in academia and industry together and understand the future M2M communication requirements and potentials.

Internet-of-Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications have attracted significant interests in both academia and industry. Billions of M2M devices are expected to be connected, and a major portion of them are through wireless connections. Research activities are ongoing in academia, and industry. M2M communication standards have been actively developed in standard bodies, particular the Weightless SIG. It provides the scope to realise tens of billions of connected devices worldwide overcoming the traditional problems associated with current wireless standards - capacity, cost, power consumption and coverage. Weightless currently has over 1,400 industry members in three categories: Associate Members, Core Members and Promoters. This one-day workshop (co-organised by Dr Yue (Frank) Gao) will provide good opportunities to learn the first-hand development and demonstration of the Weightless M2M via a number of keynote speakers from both industry and academia to address application layer, physical layer, security and regulations.
