8th International Workshop on Middleware and Applications for the Internet of Things (M4IoT 2021)
At the 22nd ACM/IFIP International Middleware Conference (Middleware 2021)
December 6-10, 2021 | On-line
http://www.m4iot.org

IMPORTANT DATES
- Paper submission: September 9, 2021 (AoE, GMT-12)
- Author notification: September 27, 2021
- Camera-ready copies: October 15, 2021


SCOPE
The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating new services and applications across various domains, including smart electricity grids, intelligent transportation, healthcare, smart homes, and energy management. As a consequence, a complex ecosystem of interconnected applications, services, and physical/virtual devices, with a high degree of heterogeneity, emerges. Such heterogeneity can be addressed by middleware platforms to abstract away the specificities of these devices, promote interoperability among them, and leverage the development of services and applications. In this ecosystem, enabled by middleware, devices share contextual data or receive control commands; services consume, process, and/or provide data; and applications leverage services and devices to fulfil users’ needs.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
The International Workshop on Middleware and Applications for the Internet of Things - M4IoT focuses on two fundamental components in such ecosystems, namely (i) the middleware to compose applications, services, and devices and (ii) the applications built atop such middleware. Central topics of interest include the design, implementation, and operation of these components and how they process data and communicate with each other. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Abstractions and API composition for IoT applications, including middleware concepts enabling end-users to interconnect devices and applications
- IoT application development issues, including methodologies, tools, and experience
- Services and infrastructure for IoT applications, e.g., cloud-, edge-, fog-, and mobile cloud-based services for IoT, data management (storage and analytics), design and experience of IoT platforms, semantic Web services, and discovery services
- Processing paradigms and services
- Quality aspects, e.g., security, privacy, Quality of Context, performance, availability, and dependability


PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
M4IoT 2021 seeks two kinds of paper submissions:
- Regular research papers (up to 6 pages) describing original, substantial contributions in research and/or practice, and
- Position papers and experience reports (up to 4 pages) describing emerging results, lessons learned, and open problems from concrete applications or novel ideas and perspectives on research

All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must comply with the ACM 2-column conference format (ACM_SigConf) available at http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template. LaTeX users must use the acmart class provided in the template with the conference format enabled at the document preamble and the ACM-Reference-Format bibliography style provided in the template. The page limit includes all figures, tables, and references. Papers must be electronically submitted through the HotCRP system: https://m4iot21.hotcrp.com/.

All submitted papers should describe original work and not be published or under review anywhere. The papers will be judged on the basis of their clarity, relevance, originality, and contribution. At least one author of each accepted paper must register at Middleware 2021 and present the paper during the workshop, otherwise the paper will not be included in the proceedings. Proceedings of previous editions of the M4IoT workshop are available at http://bit.ly/m4iot-proceedings.
