International Conference on IoT as a Service (IoTaaS 2014)
October 27-28, Rome, Italy.
The IoT era is widely seen as looming just around the corner, if not closer than that. The amount of smart devices is huge and grows in a staggering rate, while connectivity gets a wider coverage. Smart objects get immersed in everyday life and the amount and variety of contextual data they can produce, or the actions they can take on their immediate environment, is enormous. At the same time smart objects are getting smarted and their battery life gets longer.
For this trend to have a big impact, be successful, and be widely adopted and useful it needs to be tightly integrated with the most advanced operational technology trend of “Everything as a Service”. This deployment paradigm will enable the easy adoption of IoT based services and applications by end users, while forcing smart objects providers as well as platform middleware providers to architect their solutions accordingly. To maximize impact and adoption, the development of such newly created applications should be made as accessible as possible, such that the entry barrier for new innovations in this area is lowered. Moreover, the same rule of thumb applies also for the ingestion and exposure of smart objects via the platform.
The “IoT as a Service” conference, as a part of the IoT 360 Summit, is meant to bring together researchers and practitioners, from academia and from the industry, being it large Telcos and service providers, or SMEs who are interested in creating IoT based value added services. The main aim is to present existing, evolving, or novel ideas, exchange points of view, and foster discussions and future collaborations between different stakeholders. Papers are welcomed representing the point of view of middleware and platform providers, smart object providers, application developers, as well as researchers.
The “IoT as a Service” conference is seeking original research and industrial papers on the confluence of IoT and advanced delivery models. Accepted papers will be published online in the conference proceeding’s web site. Selected papers will be considered for publication in the EAI Transactions on Cloud Systems. “IoT as a Service” aims to foster an international research agenda of a practical nature.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Smart objects as a service;
IoT marketplace – for offering IoT based applications and services;
API economy – for easier and tighter integration;
Semantic Web technologies for IoT: registry, storage;
IoT delivery platforms – existing and emerging platform and architectures for exposing and interacting with IoT;
Non Functional Requirements (NFR) for IoT – security, scalability, responsiveness and more;
Standardization – standard areas needed;
IoT data management and related analytics;
IoT application deployment success stories;
Mobile First IoT: mobile backend as a services (MBaaS) and smartphone as data prosumers.
Call for Posters
Authors who wish to present their work as posters are required to submit a one-page PDF with a title and an abstract of their work (not the poster itself). Submissions should preferably represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal, or describe a technical (non-marketing) innovation. Authors of accepted posters are expected to prepare and present their posters.
Call for Demos
Technology demos are encouraged. Authors who wish to present a technology prototype are required to submit a one-page PDF with a title and a description of their work. Submissions should preferably represent technological innovations in the making. Submitters of accepted demos are expected to present the demo at the conference.
All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
Best papers will be invited to publish also in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Cloud Systems
July 31 : Paper Submission Deadline (EXTENDED!!)
