The PICASSO project is organizing a “Trans-Atlantic Symposium on ICT Technology and Policy for a Smart Society”, planned to be held in Minneapolis on June 19-20, 2017 and hosted by the Technological Leadership Institute (TLI) at the University of Minnesota. The symposium will focus on EU/US collaboration in the ICT topics of the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, big data, and 5G networks. Research and innovation priorities in these areas will be covered and we will also discuss cross-cutting policy aspects. Application domains of specific interest include the “smart society” elements of smart cities, smart energy, and smart transportation. Academia, industry, policy mak-ers, and representatives of funding bodies will participate.
