Machine-to-machine communication is considered as the next technology revolution. It involves a huge number of autonomous smart machines, sharing information and collaborating together. M2M technology encompasses a large spectrum of applications ranging from e-health and biomedical sensor networks, to vehicular technology, smart grid and advanced metering infrastructures. As the voice revenue is in constant decrease, Telecom operators are energetically supporting this new technology as it is one of the most promising revenue-generating service.

From a standardization point of view, the M2M paradigm is still in its infancy. Both ETSI and 3GPP standards do not provide a seamless and unified M2M architecture, which is a sine qua none condition to the healthy and sustained development of the M2M market. Furthermore, the spreading of M2M technologies still hinge on fully providing secure and fault-tolerance to M2M communications. Finally, in a single M2M network might coexist several radio technologies (Zigebee, bluetooth, UWB, WiFi and Femtocell...), which could dramatically impact M2M channels with fluctuation and noise.

This workshop aims to gather researchers, engineers and practitioners both from academia and industry as well as end users who aim to present recent advances on Machine-to-Machine communications.

Original contributions on Machine-to-Machine communications are solicited. The workshop proposes to address, but is not limited to, the following topics related to M2M communications, paradigms, frameworks and innovative applications:

M2M Standardization progress
Spectrum management for M2M
Green M2M communication
M2M system architecture and components
Security, trust and privacy of M2M devices and services
Mobility management for M2M
M2M and information centric networking
Reliability management for M2M
Medium access technologies and protocols for M2M communication
M2M traffic models
M2M and Smart Grid
M2M and vehicular technology
M2M and smart homes
Cloud support for M2M applications
New M2M applications, services, and business models
M2M testbed and field trials
