The Internet of Things (IoT) melds together physical objects, virtual objects, living beings, user interfaces and analytics – all interconnected over an Internet based infrastructure. It has already started to drive unprecedented transformation in how we live our lives, create and share wealth, and participate in our social and physical environments.
IoT613 fosters a culture of knowledge, sharing, and growth within the local and global IoT community. Through our varied programs, we provide a platform for technology, business, and policy professionals to learn, connect, and interact for the advancement of technology and economic development in the National Capital Region.
IoT613’s programs include a large multi day annual conference, training courses and workshops, regular speakers series, networking socials and meetups, hackathons, talent fairs, and other community events. We bring together people from diverse areas including product and service design, hardware and software engineering, policy makers, and more. All of these areas have a role to play in realizing IoT. True innovation in this space can only occur through multidisciplinary collaboration, and we want to showcase how it’s happening in Ottawa!
Whether you’re new to the IoT space or you’re a veteran, IoT613 events provide many benefits. You will learn from the best in the industry, have an opportunity to network with other industry professionals, and find out who is working on what new advancements throughout the IoT space.
What started in 2014 as an idea to bring the community together and share ideas and knowledge, lead to two very successful conferences in 2015 and 2016 and a student design competition in partnership with Windriver, Akendi and IBM.
Through partnerships, sponsors, community support, and hard work from so many volunteers, we find ourselves with a long term vision, an established company, and a purpose – to support the community and help you make connections with different skills and knowledge.
We are pleased to be currently working on the 3rd annual conference taking place in the spring of 2018. Of course these things just keep growing. This year we will be hosting 3 full days of workshops, keynotes, panels, and speaker presentations, as well as an after-hours networking social. We hope you can join us.
Longer term plans include regular training and facilitated workshops, networking socials, online resources and so much more – we can’t wait to share it all with you.
Please get in touch if you have ideas and would like to contribute to our community.
