Using Sensor-Based Networks to address Global Issues: Policy Opportunities and Challenges

The Experts Conference will adopt a holistic approach to exploring sensor-based networks. Sessions 1 to 3 will include an introduction with case studies and a panel discussion on the economic, social, and technical drivers, enablers and challenges, based on the following list of issues:

  • Recent developments in sensor networks.

  • Benefits and impacts of sensor networks.

  • Drivers and obstacles for innovation, such as the existence or lack of market incentives, new business models, and potential economic impacts.

  • Cost and return on investment in these technologies.

  • Infrastructure, such as Internet connectivity, bandwidth and addressing issues.

  • Information Security, such as challenges to maintaining confidentiality, data integrity, and data availability in a sensor-network environment.

  • Privacy, such as the protection of personal data, including the ability to provide control and transparency to users on what personal data is being collected and how it is used.

  • Interoperability, such as methods to allow different devices or networks of devices to communicate with each other.
