In addition to showcase company presentations, the conference will feature a number of market-driven topical panels, featured speakers and exclusive networking opportunities. Current keynotes for SEVC 2010 include Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, Mark Heesen, President of the National Venture Capital Association and technologist Vint Cerf, currently the Chief Internet Evangelist at Google and often referred to as "Father of the Internet."

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
