On 17–19 June, the international ITS conference will be held in Otaniemi. The conference will focus on topics that have recently been under international discussion, such as information security and other topical information technology issues related to the development and opportunities of 5G.

‘There has been a lot of talk about information security, and international discussion on who is spying on whom. At the conference, this subject will also be discussed in several speeches from the perspective of the economy and legislation’, states Aalto University Professor Heikki Hämmäinen.

5G will be a part of the future, and it will continue to develop rapidly. 5G will not revolutionise the entire Internet, but it will enable future technology.

‘5G is not only the next step in the development of mobile technology; it is a significant factor in the ecosystem of communication technology as a whole’, Professor Hämmäinen points out.

Conference starts with panel discussion

The opening of the conference will take place on Monday 17 June. The conference will be opened by Dean Jyri Hämäläinen followed by a panel discussion. Topics of the panel discussion include information security, blockchains and net neutrality.

Panellists will be Wolfgang Schwabl, Afke Schaart, Matthew Kirk, Paul Timmers and Georg Serentschy. Before the panel discussion, Wolfgang Schwabl, a leading Austrian security expert, will briefly speak about the security risks and threats of the Internet and how they should be prevented.

Registration is required to participate in the panel. Register no later than Friday 14 June at [email protected]
