7 - 13 September 2016, Galway City, Ireland. The Open Internet of Things Summer School is an event organized by the OpenIoT consortium, VITAL-IoT Project and FIESTA-IoT Project, following the EU IERC-Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (2015-2016 IERC IoT-SRIA) with focus on providing insights about Open Source Solutions, Service Openness and Semantic Interoperability for the Internet of Things.

The Open Internet of Things Summer School is an international event for the different stakeholders involved in the IoT ecosystem, scientific researcher(s) across Europe and other parts of the world, Open Source communities and developers and to any large enterprise or entrepreneurs (SME) / individuals interested to participate, contribute, develop and acquire the know-how about Internet of Things technology, Middleware platforms and services and Applications based on the Open Source IoT middlewares.

In the Open Internet of Things summer school are covered in depth a range of specialized Internet of Things technical related topics, from sensor networks, sensing data, stream data processing, methods and protocol implementation to service openness, interoperability, service scheduling, delivery, utility management, and their applications with focus on IoT horizontal solutions in multidisciplinary areas, (e.g. smart city, intelligent manufacturing, car2car communications, M2M, smart appliances, etc.)

Following the previous successful editions of the summer School this year we are co-hosting two major events in smart cities, The Open Agile Smart Cities Ireland Annual Meet-up (OASC Ireland) and the Smart Cities Workshop, two important events where the best practices for smart cities service management, deployments in technology, policy making and latest progress about services and applications are discussed by relevant stakeholders, including software developers, entrepreneurs, large industrials in the smart city space and city officials.
