Call For Papers

International Conference on Identification, Information and Knowledge in the Internet of Things 2014 (IIKI 2014)

October 17-18, 2014, Beijing

Realizing the full potential of the IoT (Internet of Things) requires solving serious technical and business problems: the identification of things, the organization, integration and management of big data, and the effective use of knowledge-based decision systems.
These challenges, and more, are the focus for the International Conference on Identification, Information and Knowledge in the Internet of Things (IIKI). The 2014 conference, the third in the IIKI series, provides the scientific and technical community a dedicated forum for discussing research, development, and applications in the IoT.
The conference is attended by international experts from the US, Europe, Australasia and China. The conference publishes in major international peer-reviewed journals.

Track 4: Cognitive radio networks: Hang Liu

Chair: Hang Liu, liuh at

Cognitive radio (CR), with the capability to flexibly adapt its parameters, has been considered as the enabling technology for dynamic spectrum access (DSA) and sharing to alleviate the spectrum scarcity problem and increase spectrum utilization. There has been tremendous progress in the research, development, and regulatory acceptance of CRs and CR networks as well as DSA in recent years. This track focuses on cognitive radios and networks and dynamic spectrum access, including novel approaches and technologies enabling more efficient use of the radio spectrum. Contributions dealing with regulatory aspects of dynamic spectrum access and cognitive radio applications are also welcomed. The topics include, but not limited to,
 Algorithm and protocol design for cognitive radios and networks
 Cross-layer optimization of cognitive radio networks
 Radio resource management
 Coexistence with legacy systems
 Spectrum sensing mechanisms
 Spectrum measurements and analysis
 Spectrum trading and auctions
 Applications of CRNs and DSA
 Experimental prototypes and results
 Regulatory aspects of dynamic spectrum access
 Security of cognitive radio networks
 Resource allocation for cognitive radio networks
 Game theory in cognitive radio
 Architectures for cognitive radio networks

Track 5: Frontiers in Cyber-Physical Systems: Houbing Song

Chair: Houbing Song, at

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are engineered systems that are built from, and depend upon, the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components. Advances in CPS will enable capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability that will far exceed the simple embedded systems of today. CPS technology will transform the way people interact with engineered systems -- just as the Internet has transformed the way people interact with information. New smart CPS will drive innovation and competition in sectors such as agriculture, energy, transportation, building design and automation, healthcare, and manufacturing.
Work focused on theory, algorithms, implementation and field deployments will be of great interest to the track. Areas of interests include (but not limited to)
 Control, optimization, signal processing, information theory
 Machine learning, verification, data mining,
 Sensor networks, embedded systems, human in the loop systems, social networks,
 Mobile computing, participatory sensing, crowd-sourcing, cloud computing

Track 6: Regulations and Standards for the Internet of Things: Zhuyan Xi

Chair: Zhuyan Xi, xizhuyan at

This Track focuses on how to develop the Internet of things as an industry, and how the Internet of Things as a technology cluster influences government governance, enterprise operation and society development. Topics include but not limited to
 Policies, Regulations and Standards of the Internet of Things
 Operation management of Internet of things in the smart city and intelligence industry
 Social impacts such as security, privacy, and trust
 Application and innovation of Internet of Things in management
 Technology adoption of the Internet of Things
 Information security management of Internet of Things

Track 7: User Experience in the IoT: Peter Thomas

Chair: Peter Thomas, peter.thomas at

As the move from desktop to mobile has focused us design for everyday lives, so the IoT will place increasing emphasis on sensitive, contextual design for in-the-moment interaction. Our experience of the world will be increasingly mediated by invisible, embedded and hyper interactive digital tools and needs new and radical approaches to understanding and designing the user experience. This track explores new user experience challenges for the IoT.

Track 8:Mobile Opportunistic networks, Shengling Wang

Chair: Shengling Wang, wangshengling at

Mobile opportunistic networks are delay tolerant networks where mobile carriers communicate with each other via their short-distance and low-cost devices to share data objects among mobile users. Unlike mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) that require end-to-end communication paths for message exchange, the communications in mobile opportunistic networks take place on the establishment of opportunistic contacts among mobile nodes, without availability of end-to-end message routing paths. Such networks face numerous challenges due to the frequent disruptions and delays, and intermittent connectivity environment. Areas of interest in this track include (but are not limited to)
 Routing, dissemination and caching in mobile opportunistic networks
 Theoretical Analysis for mobile opportunistic networks
 Security, trust, privacy in mobile opportunistic networks
 Cooperation for opportunistic computing
 Applications for mobile opportunistic networks

Track 9: PhD Symposium and Poster Track: Antonio Jara, Shenling Wang

Chairs: Antonio Jara, jara at; Shenling Wang, wangsl0362 at

This track is open to PhD Students, at any stage in their studies and in any area of study that relates to the Internet of Things, including technical, social and philosophical studies. Students should submit their problem statement and an account of their progress. Students in early stages of their Ph.D. will benefit from interacting with other Ph.D. students, as well as with members of the event processing research community represented at the conference.
The best Ph.D works will receive recognition and they will be supported for post-conference publication.
This track also welcomes posters (no more than 2 pages) in any topics of the conference.

Special session of Industries and Implementations: Antonio Jara, Rongfang Bie

Chairs: Antonio Jara, jara at; Rongfang Bie, rfbie at

This special session is intended to provide a forum for industry engineers (including utility engineers) in the Internet of Things to share their implementation experiences and practical issues regarding the relevant issues through intensive discussion.
