The IoT Hub Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) provides a service to support the Hub students/faculty with high qualified distinguished lecturers specialized on various aspects of IoT technologies and to deliver technical seminars and workshops. The DLP can be arranged in response to a request from one or more Hub partners. Currently a list of renowned Distinguished speakers is being drafted with the associated topic. Whenever possible the speeches will be made available to all Hub students by means of the Zoom service.The Hub Distinguished Lecturer programme is coordinated by Associate Professor Xenofon Fafoutis, DTU-Compute.
