1st Workshop on Internet of Things for Sustainability Development

1st Workshop on Internet of Things for Sustainability Development

Track ID: Work-10



IoT devices are widely deployed in various systems and architecture for sustainability development. One of the application is using IoT devices to monitor the energy consumption and reduce the power usage. However, adding more IoT devices may result in consuming more energy. This workshop aims to understand the current implementation and challenge of sustainability development and how IoT devices can help to improve the field. Description of the Workshop Proposal o Objectives and motivation o Novelty, highlighting the technical innovations presented in this Workshop o Workshop content, indicating the topics that the Workshop will cover in detail.


Workshop Content

This workshop is mainly focus on the sustainability requirements which IoT devices can play an important role in. For example, smart energy system and utilities relies sensors for measuring the power usage and reduce the consumption when not in use.

The workshop aims to address but not limit to the following:

  • IoT in sustainability development
  • Power and energy management of IoT
  • IoT-based environmental monitoring
  • Sustainable IoT devices
  • Green Computing in IoT
  • IoT devices to reduce carbon footprint


Intended Audience

Researchers and Industry partner who are interested in Internet of Things for sustainability development.
