Keynote Lecturer: Anastasios Economides
Presented on: 28/07/2016, Lisbon, Portugal
Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is the worldwide Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) infrastructure that will support ubiquitous services among interacting beings, objects, data and applications. In IoT, everyone and everything (humans, animals, plants, wearables, appliances, vehicles, machines, etc.) will carry sensors and/or actuators that will be interconnected via networks. Various services and applications that will use the communicated information will support users and organizations. Alongside the development of technology, user behavior, social, cultural and economic issues should be investigated. Thus, a cross-disciplinary approach should be employed to tackle uncertainties regarding the launch onto the market of profitable applications and services. However, little attention has been given to the user behavioral and organizational issues that are necessary for the acceptance, adoption and usage of these IoT services and applications by the users and organizations. It is not clear which of these services and applications will be accepted, and what are the factors that will affect their acceptance. This keynote speech presents an introduction to IoT services and applications as well as factors that could affect their acceptance.
