SENSING IN THE CONNECTED WORLD
From sensors in smartphones to ones that fit in your pocket or on your wrist, the growth in personal sensors is helping us to lead more active, healthier and interconnected lives. Even some of our normal routines are now transforming us into citizen scientists, helping us to understand how we, and the environment around us, can have an impact on each other’s health and wellbeing.
Distributed and networked systems are paving the way for the realisation of smart cities and communities and are transforming the productivity of businesses across a whole range of markets – from agriculture and manufacturing, to subsea exploration and environmental monitoring.
So how far have we come and where are we going next?
For our third annual conference CENSIS looks at how sensor and imaging systems (SIS) are being used in our increasingly connected ‘Internet of Things’ world to help deliver specific, real time information to help us better understand ourselves, our communities and our environment.
Join us for a day of discussion, debate, networking and exhibitions to investigate the challenges and opportunities of the connected world. Our themes are:
- Connected Self
- Investigating the growth in personal sensing – from clinical health to sports technologies and beyond.
- Chair: Sharon Moore, IBM UK
- Connected Community
- Exploring how distributed sensor systems impact the world around us – from smart cities, the environment, pollution, traffic and transport.
- Chair: Matthew Chalmers, University of Glasgow
- Connected Business
- How SIS and IoT solutions are making companies smarter and more productive.
- Chair: Craig Samuel, JT Group
- Charles Joel, IBM UK
- Mure Dickie, Financial Times
- Andrew Stirling, Microsoft
- Sebastian Stein, University of Dundee
- Andrew Rosie, SEPA
- Michael Groves, Topolytics Ltd.
- Prof Simon Dobson, University of St Andrews
- Dave Ross, Agricultural Engineering Precision Innovation (Agri-EPI) Centre
- Richard Lansdowne, Semtech Corporation
- Richard Marshall, Gartner
- David Moodie, FMC Technologies
- Andy Ward, Ubisense
At the end of the day, a panel will convene to discuss topics and findings and answer questions from the audience. Panel members will be:
- Ian Reid, CEO, CENSIS
- Charles Joel, IBM
- Prof Matthew Chalmers, University of Glasgow
- Jonathan Meddes, Deloitte Digital Studio
- Richard Lansdowne, Semtech
- Craig Samuel, JT Group

- Companies and organisations of any size involved in SIS, covering all elements of the sensor systems stack.
- Companies or organisations that may need to use, or are interested in accessing, SIS technologies to improve or grow their business.
- Academic researchers and knowledge exchange/business development staff in universities.
- “It was a pleasure and thanks for the invite. The entire market is really hotting up and we are looking forward to working with CENSIS going forward.”
- “The CENSIS Technology Summit provided a concentrated opportunity to learn about current initiatives and activities in the area and, most importantly, to network with existing and new contacts.”
- “I thought it was a great event, a wide and varied set of presentations which gave illumination to multiple different subjects and it was a great opportunity to network with new people. I have already had various positive follow on discussions that I hope will generate new opportunities.”
- “The conference was very useful to me, as it brought together a lot of the key Scottish technology companies into the same room.”
We are delighted to confirm the Technology Summit and Conference is an official taster event for Venturefest Scotland 2016, Scotland’s leading innovation event.
