The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as an ‘infrastructure of interconnected entities, people systems and information resources together with services which processes and reacts to information from the physical and virtual world’. IoT based systems, and systems of systems (SoS) are increasingly found in a large variety of application domains including healthcare, agriculture and manufacturing.  Implementations of these types of SoS are IT intensive, and draw upon a family of IT technologies that is sometimes referred to as ‘Smart ICT’.  This presentation will, after a general introduction to the concepts and definitions of IoT,  explore the challenges of implementing IoT intensive SoS through examples such as ‘smart’ manufacturing and ‘smart' cities.

This event will be followed by a drinks reception

François Coallier is a professor at the Department of Software and IT Engineering at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), one of Canada's leading engineering schools, affiliated to the Université du Québec network. He was CIO of ÉTS between 2010 and 2016 and the founding chair of the ÉTS Department of Software and IT Engineering from its creation in 2004 till 2010. Prior to coming to ÈTS, he spent more than 20 years in industry.

Dr. Coallier is currently the international Chair of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC41, the Joint ISO and IEC subcommittee responsible for the elaboration of standards for Internet of Things and related areas since its creation in 2016. He was also the international secretary responsible for the elaboration of standards in Software and Systems Engineering (ISO/IEC JTC1/SC7), from 1993 to 1997, and its Chair from 1997 to 2017.

He is a Fellow of the American Association of the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS), a Senior Member of the IEEE and an IEEE Computer Society Golden Core Member.
