Rotterdam Internet of Things Days, April 9th-12th 2013
Is Internet of Things (IoT) is a technology or a concept? During the Rotterdam IoT-Days we’ll discuss altogether what IoT is, how it works and above all why it has to be there. It is expected that IoT will have a major impact on people’s lives and societal domains. When we want IoT to be of meaning for us all, we should take control and create new ways of life and work. Join the Rotterdam IoT-Days to experience and share ideas, concerns and thoughts of future living in a hybrid world!
