ICT 2018 Vienna
4-6 December 2018 Vienna
ICT 2018 research and innovation event will focus on the European Union’s priorities in the digital transformation of society and industry. It will present an opportunity for the people involved in this transformation to share their experience and vision of Europe in the digital age.
During the event the IoT European Large-Scale Pilots projects will demonstrate their efforts in scaling the uptake of the Internet of Things (IoT) in Europe, improving the life of citizens, and actively protecting their privacy.
ICT 2018 Imagine Digital – Connect Europe will highlight the European Union’s priorities in the digital transformation of society and industry. People who make this transition possible will share their achievements and ideas for the future of mobility, active and healthy ageing, smart farming and the user engagement in smart cities: a view of Europe in the digital age. During the event, all visitors from tech-savvies to digital enthusiasts will have the chance to listen to influential speakers, meet the research community, decision-makers, as well as business representatives, and of course, engage with the innovators behind the EU-funded projects at the special exhibition.
The 2018 edition of this major European networking event will have the following main components:
• A conference on digital research and innovation policies,
• An exhibition of EU-funded research and innovation projects in the field of ICT,
• A series of networking activities,
• An innovation and start-ups village to showcase European entrepreneurship.
The IoT European Large-Scale Pilots will be represented by all projects, which will present their achievements in a common stand presenting the open calls, a common stand with STARTS community and active participation in several networking sessions.
The IoT European Large-Scale Pilots projects that have open calls (ACTIVAGE, IoF2020 and SynchroniCity) will highlight their activities as following:
• ACTIVAGE by describing the building of the first European open IoT ecosystem enabling the deployment of Active and Healthy Ageing solutions and services. It integrates smart devices to analyse older adults’ lifestyle and needs to provide customized solutions, ensuring users’ data privacy and security.
• IoF2020 by presenting the IoT solutions for the agri-food sector allowing to achieve higher production yields in a modern more sustainable and environmentally-responsible fashion.
• SynchroniCity by describing their approach for a global market for human-centered IoT-enabled urban services which are interoperable, replicable and reusable across cities and across domains.
All IoT European Large-Scale Pilots projects (ACTIVAGE, AUTOPILOT, CREATE-IoT, IoF2020, MONICA, SynchroniCity, U4IoT) will be actively participating in ICT2018 activities.

NEXT GENERATION INTERNET: BEYOND THE INTERNET
PLACE: HALL A, LEVEL 2
Several technological trends will reshape the internet over the next 10 years. From infrastructures such as 5G and smart connectivity beyond 5G, cognitive cloud, software-defined infrastructures, Internet of things (IoT) and embedded security to applications such as artificial intelligence, distributed ledger technologies, or interactive and immersive technologies. Europe should drive this technological revolution, while making the future internet more human-centric: an internet for people, that contributes to a more sustainable and inclusive society.
WORKPROGRAMME 2019-2020 SESSIONS
ICT-24-2019 NEXT GENERATION INTERNET – AN OPEN INTERNET INITIATIVE
This initiative aims at developing a more human-centric Internet supporting values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralisation, inclusiveness and protection of privacy; giving the control back to the users in order to increase trust in the Internet. It should provide more transparent services, more intelligence, greater involvement and participation, leading towards an Internet that is more open, robust and dependable, more interoperable and more supportive of social innovation.
PLACE: ROOM N2
ICT-30-2019 AN EMPOWERING, INCLUSIVE NEXT GENERATION INTERNET
Every citizen, from all walks of life, should be able to fully take part in the Digital Single Market. This means that the Next Generation Internet will have to empower users, including its most vulnerable or disabled one, to have access to the same digital learning opportunities, in forms that are accessible, perceivable and understandable by everybody.
PLACE: ROOM N1
U4IOT – IOT ADOPTION BARRIERS IN IOT LARGE-SCALE PILOTS (LSPS)
TIME: 09:00 – 09:45
PLACE: ROOM 0.94-0.95
The session will be convened as a part of User Engagement for IoT European Large-Scale Pilots Programme. U4IoT project will provide information on end-user engagement support. The aim of this session is to bring together participants from the five LSPs as well as other IoT experts in the field, in order to identify and discuss the main barriers and/or enablers for end-users to adopt and use those IoT solutions in each of the five domains.
PLENARY SESSION 6:
ART, THE HUMAN TOUCH OF TECHNOLOGY
PLACE: HALL E1, LEVEL 0
The STARTS initiative promotes synergies between Science, Technology, and the Arts. It is promoted under the Horizon 2020 programme with a view to fostering a growing network of players in industry and the art world. It endeavours to advance collaborations between artists, engineers and researchers to address innovation challenges linked to the technological transformation of our societies. In particular, the arts can give a ‘human touch’ to digital technologies such as artificial intelligence:
