Every year, ISTAR – Center for Research in Information Sciences, Technologies and Architecture (IUL) – hosts a Summer School Program dedicated to the central themes of the ongoing multidisciplinary research which involve the areas of Science and Information Technology, Architecture, Mathematics and the IoT laboratory. The Internet of Things (IoT) has been a growing field of research as humans and equipment are connected and embedded with smart technology. Considering the recent challenges in the area of Smart Anything (-Cities, -Networks, -Factories, -Buildings, -Home, -Health, -Education and -Campus), this year, the ISTAR Summer School offers the possibility to explore the IoT in the context of smart health, bringing together a multidisciplinary team (computer sciences, medicine and data science) and taking advantage of the existing conditions in the IoT laboratory. The IoT laboratory is equipped for a wide range of research tasks such as acquisition and transmission of sensor data to data management platforms, visualization and data analysis platforms, thus encouraging multidisciplinary research in diverse fields of electronics, communication, security, usability, data analytics and BIM models (the data of buildings).
