Innovations in Comfort, Efficiency, and Safety Solutions.
WSN in the real world – A Workshop
28th October, 2011
ZigBee Alliance Fall 2011 Members Meeting
Gallery Hotel, Barcelona, Spain
OPEN TO PUBLIC
This free public workshop will provide attendees the opportunity to exchange wireless sensor network information on standards, markets and projects, with a particular focus on the European market. Attendees will gain an understanding of European Commission research and development in this area as well as a view of local projects and deployments in Spain.
This workshop brings together researchers, developers, program managers and ZigBee subject matter experts to share information on projects, research and development, deployments and markets for wireless sensors in Europe. Sharing experiences and vision into the future on requirements and results of R&D projects will enable participants to identify opportunities to exploit new results as well as allow researchers to understand how commercial markets drive ZigBee standard development.
The workshop is sponsored by i2CAT, a research and innovation center in Barcelona, and the European Commission (EC) Framework 7 R&D program and the ZigBee Alliance.
Advanced registration <http://www.regonline.com/builder/site/?eventid=1016332> is required to attend this free workshop.

i2CAT is a research and innovation centre located in Barcelona, Spain, that has been developing an important number of research and development (R&D) projects in the area of Internet technologies since its creation in 2003. Most of these projects have been conducted in collaboration with companies in order to promote the technology transfer from R&D centers to industry. In the area of WSN, i2CAT has developed projects in different sectors: Smart Cities, Energy Efficiency, Water Management and Emergency Services.
The European Commission Framework 7 R&D Program funds research projects and actions in vast range of subjects. In WSN, a collection of approximately 20 projects provides broad cover of technologies, applications and services important to the development of wireless sensor markets in Europe and throughout the world.
In i2CAT and EC Funded projects, as well as in WSN R&D activities throughout the world, ZigBee products and specifications provide key support to the WSN research community.
