The second Seasonal School in “Circuits and Systems for the Industrial Internet-of-Things” (CAS4IIoT) presents a joint academia-industry program in the field of IoT. It aims at preparing a group of 70+ post-graduated Students and design Engineers with the capacity to understand and design a broader range of circuits and systems, in the field of IoT, spanning from data converters for sensor interfaces to artificial inteligence, ensuring a good balance between academia and industry, combined with a judicious selection of worldwide distinguished Lecturers.

The Department of Electrical Engineering (DEE) at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology at NOVA University of Lisbon (FCT NOVA) together with the Centre of Technology and Systems (CTS) at UNINOVA Institute have organized this IEEE CASS and SSCS sponsored Seasonal School. Having more than 100 PhD students working in the fields of IoT and cyber-physical systems, DEE and CTS are currently providing most of the human and material resources needed to successfully run this Seasonal School.
