IEEE Sensors Roundtable Meeting:

Focus on Resolving Interoperability and Cybersecurity Issues for IoT-Enabled Sensor Devices

  14-15 September 2022 | AT&T Hotel and Conference Center, Austin, TX



Internet of Things (IoT) sensors have experienced explosive growth during the last decade and are poised for continued mass-scale adoption in smart cities, industrial IoT, healthcare, and the automotive industry, including the oncoming autonomous vehicles markets. The explosive growth has exposed issues that are beginning to plague the industry.


Network interoperability and cybersecurity are the two most important issues consistently identified in industry surveys and market reports. These issues represent the biggest impediments to market growth - adding implementation costs, impeding system-wide cybersecurity solutions, and leading to closed-loop systems that hinder free-market competition. Another major concern is that devices with IoT sensors are not positioned to take full advantage of the IoT.


In the effort to address these challenges, IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to join an in-person roundtable meeting where industry, government agencies, and other stakeholders present and discuss possible solutions.


Please note that this roundtable is not a conference. Participants will be discussing ideas and making recommendations to help address challenges in the sensors industry.



Eligibility for Roundtable participation includes: A company may register up to two participants in senior positions, following the below guidelines:

  • Participants should have expertise in cybersecurity and/or interoperability
  • A business executive may attend and bring a technical representative

Please register your interest in participating, by completing the Interest Form at the top of this page.



Major topics that will be discussed include:

  • Interoperability, cybersecurity, and conformity assessment
  • Implementations of emerging sensor standards
  • How to restore users' trust in product specifications

Roundtable Purpose and Outcome

  • Discuss industry needs and recommendations
  • The discussion will be guided by a white paper, identifying key interoperability challenges, cybersecurity issues, and recommended resolution
  • Define a path to interoperability and cybersecurity for IoT-enabled sensors



Date: 14-15 September 2022

Location: AT&T Hotel and Conference Center, Austin, TX


Meals and refreshments will be provided.
