Title : "Embedded cybersecurity, the cornerstone that enables trust in ICT deployments"
Abstract :

Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) are driving the digitalization of our society and our economy. Recently, issues related to supply chain disruption and the need for more sovereignty have stressed that the security of ICT is getting key.

In this context, secure-by-design approaches are gaining momentum.

In this talk, I'll explain how "roots of trust" are enabling provable security, not only at ICT system inception but also during its complete lifecycle, from chip-to-cloud.

I will present SecuryzrTM, an integrated Secure Element embedding strong technologies, resistant to physical attacks (reverse-engineering, perturbation & side-channel analysis), coupled with the ability to update & upgrade on-the-field.

Besides, I'll illustrate how this offering (iSSP: integrated Security Services Platform) has been certified in terms of cyber-security (Common Criteria, FIPS, IEC 62443, SESIP, etc.) and has been successfully deployed in industrial use-cases.

Title : "IoSat the Internet of Satellite"
Abstract :

When it comes to evaluating and processing the collected data, the first step is to identify the source of the data. IoSat will make a bold move in the sphere of telecommunications and data apps in order to establish a better strategy for pre-processing and post-processing the given data. The next evolution of how a nanosatellite or CubeSat (or small satellite) will be utilized is to acquire and make decisions for humans from space, managing your data and apps with or without your permission.

Title : "Electronics: sustainability challenges and opportunities of open hardware"
Abstract :

As the hardware support of our digital society, electronics contributes to most of the technological advances in all fields of knowledge. Technological challenges in electronics include energy efficiency, hardware cybersecurity, miniaturization, and dependability. Each solution to these challenges opens up new markets, and creates thousands of new jobs each year.

Globally, the electronics industry produces 53 million tons of waste per year, qualified as e-waste. Less than 20% of this e-waste is recycled, and the trend in annual e-waste production is increasing. The carbon impact of the manufacturing and end-of-life of digital systems is increasingly impacting the carbon footprint of their entire life cycle, alongside the carbon impact of their energy supply. In this context, new methods are needed to increase the repairability, reconfigurability and reusability of systems, as well as to reduce the impacts of the production, usage, and end-of-life of systems.

The ongoing "open source hardware" movement, equivalent to the "open source software" movement of the 2000s, is an opportunity to build sustainable technologies for interoperability and scalability of electronic systems. If these technologies alone will not avoid the rebound effect, they will be an essential tool to achieve the drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and waste necessary to achieve sustainability. The French research and education ESOS project (, 2023-2028) financed by France2030, aims to implement design methods for sustainable electronics, and to train technicians, engineers and doctors capable of implementing this transition.
