1st TUM-Eurecom Workshop on Communications and Security

On December 14-15, 2017, the TUM Chair of Communications Engineering (LNT) is organizing the 1st TUM-Eurecom Workshop on Communications and Security in collaboration with TUM-MSV and the Communication Systems Department of Eurecom, France. This is a dissemination and networking event organized in the context of the SECIF project ("Secured Communications for Industry of the Future"). SECIF is funded by the French-German Academy towards Industry 4.0. and promotes collaborative research around efficient and secure communications with an emphasis on IoT and factory-of-the-future use cases.

The workshop will take place at the TUM Main Campus in Munich, Room N2408. The program consists of talks and poster sessions from members of the three research groups, as well as other invited speakers.

We look forward to seeing you in Munich!
