ISD2019 will take place in the premises of ISEN Yncréa Méditerranée (Higher Institute for Electronics and Digital Training) (in French « Institut supérieur de l’électronique et du numérique » (ISEN)), located on Georges Pompidou square in Toulon.
ISEN is one of the 207 French engineering schools , founded in 1956 in Lille, in northern France. In 1991, ISEN has settled down in Toulon in the current House of Technologies and Innovation, which also welcomes start-ups, business incubators and a makerspace. ISEN is specialized in electronics, computing and digital fields, training generalist engineers of the new technologies. The ISEN group has already trained 8500 engineers, currently in office in France and worldwide. The Toulon campus welcomes each year about 650 students, who choose a specialization like mobile robotic, connected objects, big data or smart energies.
The research activities are intensive at ISEN thanks to its 96 teachers-researchers who publish every year 135 international scientific articles. Especially, ISEN has created in 2016 a research chair "Internet of Things" in partnership with large companies of the digital world, allowing ISEN to increasingly innovate in the field of connected objects.
