Conference Overview
The Internet as ubiquitous infrastructure and the widespread use of mobile
and wireless devices have laid the foundation for the emergence of
innovative network applications. In addition, the advances of sensor
technologies are facilitating Cyber-Physical Systems, i.e. the integration
of the digital world with the physical environment, and the advent of the
Internet of Things. Large-scale networked systems, real-time data streams
from sensors and widespread use of mobile devices are contributing to the
Big Data trends. Intelligent and efficient approaches are required to turn
the wealth of data available from the network into useful and actionable
knowledge. The conference programme will focus on emerging models,
paradigms, applications and technologies related to Internet-based
distributed systems.

Conference Format
The perfect venue for an academic retreat and the single track format
facilitate interaction and socialisation of the participants. Invited
keynote speakers are opening the activities of each day. A special session
is dedicated to PhD students presenting their work to the community:
four student grants are available to cover travel and accommodation costs.

The conference proceedings will be published as Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS). All contributions will also be electronically
available through SpringerLink Database and will be indexed through ISI
Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S), EI, Scopus, ACM
Digital Library, DBLP, and Google scholar.

Authors of selected conference papers will be invited to submit an
extended paper to a Special Issue on "Cyber-physical Systems (CPS),
Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data" of the Elsevier Journal of
Future Generation Computer Systems (Impact Factor: 2.639),
and to an edited volume of the Springer Book Series on Internet of Things.

conference venue is a 17th century house which combines charming English
hospitality with 21st century facilities.
The conference activities include an excursion to Bletchley Park, historic
site of secret British codebreaking activities during WWII, workplace of
