Horizon Europe Information and Virtual Brokerage Session @ Virtual
Feb 2 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm


Following the “Digital Autonomy in the Computing Continuum” Workshop in November 2021 (more information here), the European Commission invites stakeholders from industry, academia, and innovators to participate in an Information and Virtual Brokerage Session on the Horizon Europe 2022 Call on “WORLD LEADING DATA AND COMPUTING TECHNOLOGIES” and “Digital and emerging technologies for competitiveness and fit for the green deal” on 2 February 2022, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm CET.

The open and free half-day virtual event will introduce the three Horizon Europe calls “Cognitive Cloud: AI-enabled computing continuum from Cloud to Edge (RIA)”, “Open source for cloud-based services (RIA)“, and “Programming tools for decentralised intelligence and swarms (RIA)The event is organised by the European Commission in collaboration with H-CLOUD (Grant Agreement no 871920), HUB4CLOUD (Grant Agreement no 101016673), and EU-IoT (Grant Agreement no 956671).

The event offers a unique international networking experience to forge the winning partnerships with academics, researchers, industrial stakeholders, and SMEs. Event participants will have the unique opportunity to pitch new concepts and applications, proposal ideas, and expertise in front of leading research organisations and cutting-edge innovators from across industry.

  • Pitch registration will start on 11 January 2022. The registration deadline is on 31 January 2022 12:00 CET latest. The event organisers will validate and confirm your pitch slot by 1 February 2022 12:00 CET.

HIPEAC 2022 | DL4IoT: Workshop on Deep Learning for IoT @ Budapest, Hungary
Jun 20 – Jun 22 all-day

The HiPEAC 2022 conference will take place in Budapest (Hungary), as a F2F event, from the 20th to the 22nd of June, 2022.


VEDLIoT workshop DL4IoT: Workshop on Deep Learning for IoT June 20th at 15:00 – 16.30

The use of AI in IoT applications dramatically extends the capabilities of IoT systems and their application areas. These new, next-generation IoT architectures allow for processing vast amounts of data collected in distributed systems, affecting areas like transportation (e.g. self-driving cars), automation (e.g. robotization or predictive maintenance), and our homes (e.g. assisted living). Teaching the IoT to learn imposes a number of new challenges. New hardware and accelerator concepts are required for efficient data processing in a distributed environment. Also, significant improvements on the toolchain are required to bridge between AI and IoT developers. Furthermore, security, privacy, or robustness for such systems becomes a critical challenge, being essential for most application domains. The workshop aims at discussing challenges and solutions related to the exploitation of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL) for handling the large complexity of IoT applications.
