About The Event
We are delighted to welcome you to the 2021 edition of Connected Everything (CE) II Summer School. Our core theme this year is "Industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) for Connected Factories". The school is hosted by the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Leeds University, UK in collaboration with the School of Computing and Engineering at the University of Huddersfield, UK.
The summer school aims to provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussions around recent advancements in IIoT. This year we have very exciting programme which involves a mix of industrial and academic talks around the thematic area. The program also includes hands-on sessions and a Hackathon for participants.
Due to the uncertainity around the pandemic, this year School will be fully virtual (online).
Monday to Wednesday
About the Network+:
ConnectedEverything II Network+ is an EPSRC-funded research network for the Digital Manufacturing community which is addressing the question ‘how do we support the future of manufacturing in the UK?‘ As digital technology advances, the manufacturing sector must adapt and respond to a great number of drivers and barriers.More Information
This year we have top academic and industrial speakers.

Hands on NVIDIA Deep Learning Training
On Day 2 (13th July 2:00-6:00 pm), the summer school is conducting an exclusive NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) supported hands-on workshop on Deep Learning powered by GPUs in the cloud. Upon successful completion of the assessment, participants will receive an NVIDIA DLI certificate to recognize their subject matter competency and support professional career growth. A welcome pack has been sent to participants and they can access the NVIDIA GPU resources using the links.
Participation in the workshop requires an understanding of fundamental programming concepts in Python such as functions, loops, dictionaries, and arrays. Suggested materials to satisfy prerequisites can be found at: Python Course
We will be announcing details of Hackathon competition soon. Keep an eye on this space to find more about hardware and software requirements.
Can I get support for childcare to attend the event?
Yes, we have a budget allocated towards supporting candidates who require childcare to attend. Please use the application form to indicate that you require this funding to attend the event.
Will the talks be pre-recorded?
Some of the talks are pre-recorded while others are live.
I am outside UK, can I attend?
The participation is only available to UK PhD, post-doc and Early career researchers. This is because the event is funded by the EPSRC. However, if you are outside the UK and will like to join, do not hesitate to apply. While you may not have access to the hardware for hackathon, you will still be able to join talks.
Will I need to install some software to participate in Hackathon?
Yes, you would. We will make this public closer to event.
