School experts were also invited to contribute to the event. Dr Budi Arief gave a master class titled ‘Cyber Security: It’s a Socio-Technical Challenge’, and Dan Knox, Makerspace Technician, gave a class on ‘Internet of Things “The Smart City” context’.

As well as talks, delegates had a unique opportunity to see a selection of the University’s latest innovations and technologies at the event’s Innovation Zone. The School of Computing also contributed to this with a Lego City which demonstrated how Internet of Things sensors and actuators can be used to enhance existing public services.
