The Internet of Things (IoT) connects a plethora of devices. It allows programmers to interact with the physical environment. This brings many fascinating challenges and opportunities but also risks.

In our summer school we will introduce you to the fascinating world of the Industrial Internet of Things, the IoT that makes factories run. You will learn about many different aspects from device manufacturing over communication protocol and semantics to application management.

This year’s edition has the title “IoT meets Cyber“. Software drives the critical infrastructures around us like water or energy supply, communication, transportation, banking, production, or health care. This year’s edition focuses on different aspects of the software cyberspace, including cybersecurity.

The Future-IoT.org PhD school series happens ones a year since 2018. The previous editions are “IoT meets Industry (2018, St Malo)”, “IoT meets AI (2019, Munich)”, “IoT meets Security (2020 in the cyberspace)“.

The series is organized by IMT Atlantique* and Technical University of Munich as a flagship event of the German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future. The French-German series is kindly supported by the Deutsch-Französische Hochschule / Université Franco-Allemande.
