Smart Event at Agora Einstein - Sophia Antipolis

  Welcome to Smart Mobility 2008

Innovation makers from the Mobile Ecosystem and the Smart Security Industry meet at Smart Mobility. At stake: bringing trust to mobile and wireless communications, services and applications.

2008 has shown a growing awareness and concern about mobile security. While mobile and contactless solutions are blooming (Internet, payment, TV, ticketing, localisation…), while mobile telecoms, IT and Smart Security sectors are converging, it is urgent to address thoroughly the trust and security challenge of Mobility. This is the focus of Smart Mobility.

During 2½ days, over 30 researchers and experts from the whole mobility and security value chain will present the latest technology innovations, share the lessons from trials and live roll-outs, and address their vision for consumers-centric transactions and services that combine:
- Security: Trust+Risks Management+Privacy
- Mobility: Infrastructure+Protocols+Appliances
- Convenience: Anything+Anytime+Anywhere

Smart Mobility program adopts a dual approach, technologies AND applications issues, thanks to 2 complementary parallel streams:

Smart Mobility Ecosystem
stream focuses on hottest mobile security topics related to: NFC devices and applications, smart security devices, open mobile platforms and devices, client-server architectures, standardisation.

Smart Mobility Applications
covers the 3 major mobile applications that are Media & Content Services, Transportation and m-Payment. In each theme, the presentations topics will range from market acceptance to high level security solutions.
