We are pleased to announce a call for participation to the 1st Nepal National Summer School on Research methods: Sensing, Monitoring and the Internet of Things, held at Softwarica College, Nepal

The Sensing, Monitoring and the Internet of Things Summer School offers the opportunity to improve your existing knowledge base or gather new skills in some of today's most exciting scientific topics, with high relevance to both engineering and computer science disciplines. The summer school will combine lectures with hands-on tutorials covering: 1) research methods and research communication skills (written and oral communication), 2) fundamental IoT concepts and sensing applications, and, 3) practical IoT development. The summer school aims to provide participants with a solid understanding of core research skills and IoT principles, to enable them to kick-start their research in this and related fields. 

Who would benefit most from the event:

The summer school is aimed at MSc and PhD students, as well as early career lecturers and researchers from universities that have a background in engineering, computer sciences and social sciences (using experimental methods and involved with data collection).

We welcome industry participation and we encourage IT entrepreneurs to register for the event (or parts of it).

This event provides a unique opportunity of learning from experienced researchers, based at Coventry University, UK and is sponsored by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, through the HELP project (http://help-refugee.coventry.ac.uk).

Why attend:

During the course participants will:

  • Improve core skills in written and oral communication of research
  • Present and receive feedback on their current research topics and oral presentation skills
  • Understand the latest results, trends, activities and applications in the IoT domain.
  • Gain the hands-on skills required to implement and deploy an IoT system, using TinyOS and TelosB nodes.
  • Network with established researchers and make new contracts.
