IEEE 8th World Forum on Internet of Things
26 October–11 November 2022 // Yokohama, Japan

Masters/PhD Forum and Student Paper Contest

This technical program provides an opportunity for M.Sc./Ph.D. students in the fields of the Internet of Things, supporting technology areas, and IoT applications, to present their thesis/dissertation research (that has been completed in the last year or will be completed in the near future), including work in progress within the topics of interest for WF-IoT 2022. The Forum provides a unique opportunity for students to present their M.Sc./Ph.D. work to the conference attendees, meet with their peers and experts in the field, and most importantly, receive feedback on their work.
