This is a detailed view of the research program only. To get a complete picture of all the events (keynotes, social events, etc.) taking place at the broader iSummit please visit the official iSummit website.

Note to iSummit participants: the listing of multiple names for a title indicates simply that there exists a research collaboration between multiple parties for that title. This does not guarantee that all respective researchers will be present during the session. For each presentation at least one (and often only one) of the authors will be present. This is common practice in research/academic presentations. Other iSummit tracks may be organized in a different manner.
