Industry session at EWSN 2013 a big success
EWSN stands for the European Wireless Sensor Network conference, which is held annually in different locations around Europe. It usually features 100-200 researchers in the field.
This year, in the beautiful Belgian city of Gent, for the first time in its history the conference featured an special industry session to which, thanks to the kindness of Thiemo Voigt from SICS we were invited as speakers, to share some insights as a company stemming out of a research background, involved in research on wireless network simulation.
The session garnered a very positive response, as it was geared towards passing on some lessons learned in the business world to researchers who might want to try starting their own company. It was really interesting to speak alongside the other representatives of the industry and realise that, although in different words, we were all essentially saying the same things — be prepared to take risks, talk to people, expect the unexpected.
The presentations should be available on the EWSN website soon.
