The RIOT community consists of companies, academias, and hobbyist, distributed all around the world. RIOT aims to implement all relevant open standards supporting an Internet of Things that is connected, secure, durable & privacy-friendly.

About the RIOT Summit

Over the last years, RIOT has emerged as one of the agile and state of the art operating system for the IoT. The previous Summits were a big success. It’s time to meet again!

The RIOT Summit aims for bringing together RIOTers, beginners and experts, as well as people interested in the IoT in general and decision makers who plan to deploy RIOT in the future. The event combines plenary talks, hands-on tutorials, and break-out sessions. The Summit will not only inform about latest developments but will also help to gather feedback from the community to shape the RIOT future.


What can you expect?

This is the eight Summit of the RIOT community. We will put hell of a lot of energy to make this a special event.

  • Great talks
  • Lively demos and tutorials
  • Social networking
  • No registration fees but reservation is needed

Why should you attend?

It’s like vacation. Once a year you should come together with the members of the community to reflect on the past and push the future.

  • Contact with senior and junior RIOT developers
  • Latest community news
  • Participation is free

Why should you sponsor?

RIOT is a community product and we want to involve as many people as possible. We don’t want to introduce fees and need your help!

  • Explicit support of the RIOT community
  • High visibility
  • Different sponsor levels
  • Connect with RIOT developers and users

The RIOT Summit: 2 days of great talks, tutorials, and demos + 1 hackathon day for IoT enthusiasts.

You want to give a talk or present a demo? Please submit!

More code. Saturday is Hackathon Day.

The two days of RIOT Summit are followed by a one-day hackathon. This will give participants a chance to work together immediately on ideas developed during Summit discussions, to experiment with new technologies, or to follow up on break-out sessions and discussions of the RIOT Summit.

Unlike the RIOT Summit, this hackathon has little planned structure. We do plan to allow for lightning talk style summaries at the end to further interconnect hackathon participants.


September 7th, 2024, full day


To be announced.
