About

SenZations 2015

10th Summer School on IoT and Applications will be held in Belgrade, from August 30th to September 5th

Register today. Attend technology or business track. Work in teams, hands-on. Build IoT services, prepare business models. Learn about innovation, marketing and leadership.

Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without talking about the other.

Bill Gates

This year SenZations is celebrating its 10th edition. The first SenZations Summer School was held in 2006 and as far as we know SenZations is the oldest summer school on IoT in the world. Not bad, ha :)

From the very beginning, our goal was to combine interesting topics, great lecturers from academia and industry and amazing students, to work hard and enjoy even more while learning about the latest developments in the IoT world, creating new contacts, initiating new projects...The business savvy guys joined computer geeks in the recent years for an even richer experience.

The participants come from all over the world. We spend 6 days (and nights) together, providing ample time to work, talk, discuss with fellow students and lecturers. Over the previous 9 years, more than 700 people attended the school, learning about a wide range of topics from the IoT domain, working with various software tools and implementing cool gadgets.

This year, during the school the FP7 SocIoTal project will launch its platform. The SocIoTal researchers will be around to give tutorials and help with building services on top of the platform. You will learn about smart city services and what is being done in this domain worldwide. You will discover what to expect from combination of two hot technologies - IoT and augmented reality. Together we will explore data privacy and security issues, such as who can access and use data generated by your sensors. Finally, we will show you how to leverage on sharing economy and build IoT startups.
