Remembering Our 2014 Conference

Thanks to our loyal sponsors, exhibitors, speakers and attendees, the 2014 Conference in Providence, RI was a tremendous success!  Over 100 impressive Papers were presented during the Symposium and the Exhibition Hall was consistently vibrant with Customers and Suppliers, including a wide variety of New Product Introductions and Poster Papers.  The Plenary Speaker, Cliff Thomas of Cisco Smart + Connected Communities, provided a compelling vision of “The Internet of Everything for Smart Communities”.
