Call For Papers

Internet of Things (IoT) is a global network infrastructure where in the physical and virtual objects are all made equipped with data capture and communication capabilities so that they can use the ubiquitous internet to transmit data and other controlling purposes. The physical objects of the world will be seamlessly integrated into information network. The integration may be various purposes like – data capture, monitoring and controlling among many others. Wireless links must spread beyond smart phones, PCs and Tablets.
Since the existence, the planet itself – be it nature, humans or physical objects, has been generating enormous amount of data and we have just lost it. Also, with the parallel growth of the cloud technologies, the data can be accessed, manipulated and controlled from anywhere.
The Internet of Things requires a few necessary components to enable communication between devices and objects. Objects need to be augmented with an Auto-ID technology, typically an RFID tag, so that the object is uniquely identifiable. Also, an RFID tag allows the object to wirelessly communicate certain types of information, which leads us to another requirement – the ability to monitor data. Truly smart objects will be embedded with both an RFID tag and a sensor to measure
data. The sensor may capture fluctuations in the surrounding temperature, changes in quantity, or other types of information.
The Web of Things is expected to have broad and sweeping economic and societal impact. Open standards will be critical to enabling exponential growth of the kind we experienced with the early days of the Web, that saw it growing from a handful of enthusiasts in the early nineties to a global phenomenon in just a few years. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are playing more and more a key role in several application scenarios such as healthcare, agriculture, environment monitoring, and
smart metering.
