The CHIST-ERA ERA-NET is a consortium of funding organisations in Europe and beyond with programmes supporting ICST. The consortium is itself supported by the European Union’s Future & Emerging Technologies scheme (FET). CHIST-ERA promotes multidisciplinary and transnational ICT research with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. The funding organisations jointly support research projects selected in the framework of CHIST-ERA, in order to reinforce European capabilities in selected topics. The Call 2015, to be published in October, addresses two new and hot topics:

Security and Privacy in Internet of Things (SPIoT)

Terahertz Band for Next-Generation Mobile Communication Systems (TENXSYS)

The CHIST-ERA Conference 2015 in Lisbon, June 16-18, brings together scientists working in these research areas and CHIST-ERA representatives to refine the topics contour and scope of the Call 2015. The topic keywords in the attached flyer illustrate the topics, but will be refined. All attendees are invited to participate in plenary and facilitated break-out sessions to identify and formulate the promising scientific and technological challenges at the frontier of research. High level keynote talks by internationally renowned scientists and poster presentations will further contribute to the discussions. This event represents a unique opportunity for the scientific community to directly participate in scoping the call topics content and exchanging their views on the future of the domain with their peers. Many successful CHIST-ERA research proposals have been initiated at CHIST-ERA conferences.

Note that the SPIoT session of June 16 is organised jointly with the IoT Week Lisbon 2015 event. The conference and the IoT Week are colocated at the Lisbon Congress Centre.
