|10:10 – 10:40||
|10:40 – 11:00||Coffee Break|
|11:00 – 12:30
New laws, technologies and levels of public attention have raised the stakes and uncertainties regarding privacy; this panel will bring together policy and industry experts to discuss constraints and opportunities for joint research, new challenges for joint research into ‘compliance by design’ and prospects for coordinated policy responses.
|12:30 – 13:30||Lunch|
|13:30 – 15:00||
Plenary Panel: Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) with a Focus on Smart Energy Systems.
This panel will discuss the state of the art and technology gaps in the transition to smart energy systems that CPS/IoT are enabling.
|15:00 – 15:20||Coffee Break|
|15:20 – 16:30||
Plenary Panel: What We Must Do to Strengthen Cyber Resiliency and IoT Security.
Representatives from government, including NIST, and industry, including Microsoft, will discuss cyber security, cyber resilience, and critical infrastructure.
Traditional interactions between people and technology are often managed in an environment that consists of known devices and known software. For a world of IoT devices spreading all over in both public and private spaces, this doesn’t scale from manageability and cybersecurity perspectives. Protection, detection and recovery of IoT systems must be automated. Yet, not all device makers including small and medium businesses know how to accomplish this throughout IoT products life cycle. We need to consider how policies, standards and technical solutions can help address IoT security and resiliency challenges. This panel is designed to have experts from both private and public sectors to share their perspectives on how to help raise public awareness, invest in policy and standard development, support cross sector collaboration to address long term IoT security and cyber resiliency both at the regional and global levels.
|16:30 – 18:00||
Plenary Panel on partnerships on Big Data Research & Innovation and Workforce Development.
This will focus on needs and collaboration opportunities on Smart Cities, Smart Health and Data Science Workforce and Data Literacy.
|18:00 – 20:00||Evening reception sponsored by Mississippi State University|
Day 2 – June 19, 2018
|09:00 – 10:30||
Plenary panel: 5G and Beyond.
This panel will focus on a dialogue between EU and US peers on research opportunities, challenges and perspective EU-US collaboration for 5G and beyond.
Chair and moderator:

|10:50 – 12:20||
Plenary Panel on the Future of Autonomous Systems
Autonomous transportation systems have the potential to change every aspect of human life, and have captured the imagination of academics, industry, and the general public like few other technological developments. Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) research ranges from package delivery to remote persistent observations. Autonomous ground vehicles open up opportunities for more efficient public transportation, trucking, as well as safer transport for individuals. Both systems have the potential to revolutionize transportation of goods and services; however, major technological and policy obstacles must be addressed if their potential is to be realized. Two panels, one on each system, will focus on the research needs and collaborative opportunities

|12:20 – 13:20||Lunch|
|13:20 – 14:50
Three Breakout Sessions: CPS/IoT, Big Data, and 5G.
These sessions will allow experts to explore specific topics in greater technical depth, and/or discuss relevant policy aspects:
Breakout session 1 (CPS/IoT) will focus on Autonomous Cyber-physical Systems – research agenda and cooperation options
Moderators: Tariq Samad, Technological Leadership Institute, University of Minnesota, US and Sebastian Engell, Professor TU Dortmund, Germany » download presentation
Breakout session 2 (Big Data) will focus on joint programs to identify “data ethics” as ground rules for the development and exploitation of Big Data
Moderator: Jonathan Cave, GNKS, University of Warwick, Alan Turing Institute and UK Regulatory Policy Committee, United Kingdom
Breakout session 3 (5G and beyond) will focus on discussing future wireless communications at carrier frequencies beyond 100 GHz with respect to both enabling technology and spectrum policy aspects
Moderator: Gerhard Fettweis, Vodafone Chair Professor at TU Dresden, Germany
