On 28 August, the Smart Card and Internet of Things Security Centre Open Day, marking the seventeenth anniversary of the Smart Card Centre, was held in the Picture Gallery.
The event provided an exhibition opportunity for its sponsors, students, supporters and industry representatives and colleagues were able to network throughout the day.
There was also a distinguished guest lecture delivered by Professor Steve Babbage, Vodafone Group.
Professor Konstantinos Markantonakis, Director of the Smart Card and IoT Security Centre said:
'The SCC Open Day was once again a great success attracting more than 100 visitors and eight exhibiting companies. Our twenty-eight undergraduate, Masters and PhD student posters included topics from drone security, trusted execution environments, automotive security, Internet-of-Things (IoT), smart home and e-health, trusted supply chains, carbon labelling, as well as overall application/system security solutions. All our students demonstrated professionalism, commitment and expertise that was widely recognised by all visitors. Their hard work is leading into academic publications and commercialisation activities. This year’s event was held in memory of Professor Mike Walker, who helped to set up the Smart Card Centre in 2002 and demonstrated that the SCC research and commercialization activities maintain their highly respected academic and real world significance.'
