The ISG Smart Card and IoT Security Centre Open-Day 2019 marks the 17th anniversary of the Smart Card Centre. It will be held in the Picture Gallery at Royal Holloway, and acts as a relaxed networking and exhibition event for its sponsors, supporters and industry representatives. There will also be VIP guests and students in attendance (some of whom will be looking for jobs).
This year’s event will be held in memory of Professor Mike Walker, who help to set up the Smart Card Centre in 2002. We really hope you can support us and we look forward to welcoming you in August.
The event is held biannually and comprises a mix of exhibits from our students and industry/organisations. There is also a distinguished guest lecture by Prof Steve Babbage, Vodafone Group. Our Open Days include practical demonstrations and lectures from recognised experts. A buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Quote from Professor Konstantinos Markantonakis, Director of the Smart Card and IoT Security Centre:
“The SCC Open Day was once again a great success attracting more than 100 visitors and 8 exhibiting companies. Our twenty-eight Undergraduate, Master and PhD student posters included topics from drone security, trusted execution environments, automotive security, Internet-of-Things (IoT), smart home and e-health, trusted supply chains, carbon labelling, as well as overall application/system security solutions. All our students demonstrated professionalism, commitment and expertise that was widely recognised by all visitors. Their hard work is leading into academic publications and commercialisation activities. This year’s event was held in memory of Professor Mike Walker, who help to set up the Smart Card Centre in 2002 and demonstrated that the SCC research and commercialization activities maintain their highly respected academic and real world significance.”
