Internet of Things (IoT) Summit at RWW2024
24 January – 2 February 2024 // San Antonio, TX // USA



The Seventh IEEE Internet of Things (IoT) Vertical and Topical Summit at Radio & Wireless Week (RWW) 2024 is devoted to biomedical IoT applications. Technologies for sensing, signal processing and computing, data storage, and communications are important ingredients in architecting biomedical solutions that are important to human health and human well-being. There are at least five aspects to biomedical IoT applications that are important for the general population. They include the following:

  • The practice of medicine
  • Public health
  • Personal lifestyle
  • Environmental exposure
  • Biomedical research.

Many of the advancements in the field have significantly benefited from the pace of innovation in the capabilities and performance improvements in electronics and the exploitation of methods and techniques for measuring and generating electromagnetic signals across the spectrum - from light to microwave frequencies. They have also benefited from the ability to create new materials, miniaturize electronic components, embed sophisticated signal processing and computation in devices, and lastly, harness new sensing and actuation methods, such as the uses of microelectromechanical systems and microfluidic devices, and new data interpretation techniques, such as the breakthroughs in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms. The applications range from personal wearables, widely available as consumer goods, to specialized medical instrumentation focused on specific diseases or conditions. They cover the detection of pathogens in our environment, the direct monitoring and management of chronic disease symptoms, and ways of dealing with human impairments through devices that restore or enhance body functions. The science and engineering involved are multidisciplinary and require collaboration between technical and professional disciplines and communities of practice. The fusion of biological sciences with advances in the physical, mathematical, and chemical sciences and engineering has led to concepts such as personalized medicine to manage health, taking advantage of personal data based on genomics, and physiological data based on an individual’s condition and history.

Biomedical device and system applications of the IoT are not new, but significant public sector and commercial investments have seen rapid progress in the underlying technologies. At the same time, the use and acceptance of IoT solutions have also seen double-digit expansion in deployments for sectors related to public health and the practice of medicine. You will find the summit stimulating and rewarding if you are a policy maker, an administrator, a product manager, a technologist, a practicing electronics engineer, or a researcher or if you are just curious about the progress and promise of biomedical devices and systems.

Please join us in person or online for the hybrid portion of the program on Wednesday, 24 January 2024 in San Antonio, TX, USA, and live online for the virtual sessions conducted from 29 January to 2 February 2024. We look forward to your active participation as an attendee or as a presenter.
