Call For Papers

Call for Papers
Conference on Interoperability in IoT (InterIoT)
October 26-27, 2015, Rome, Italy

Best papers will be invited for a special issue of Elsevier Journal of Network and Computer Applications journal (Impact Factor: 2.229):

Part of the iOT360 summit (

After some market consolidation happening mostly between 2011 and 2013, IoT products are now hitting the market across all segments: consumer (wearables, home automation), commercial (HVAC, parking) and industrial (industrial process control, supervision). Often driven by the fear to “fall behind”, small and large companies push their engineering teams to productize solutions quickly. If those companies choose to implement standards-based products, the compliance testing, interoperation testing and labeling of their product may take over a year, which is often unacceptable giving todays rush-to-market. Companies therefore often go for in-house proprietary solutions, which can be developed and tested much faster.

The result is that the market is highly fragmented: a large number of non-interoperable solutions are being installed, eventually leading to increased cost, inefficiencies, customer frustration, and a rate of adoption of the IoT much slower than the numbers touted by analysts. The market is now at a state where we need to think about interoperability. What does it take to make different IoT solutions seamlessly integrate with one another? Are there architectures and tools one could develop to speed up interoperability testing? If interoperability isn’t feasible or desired, can we at least build in mechanisms for different product to coexist?

The goal of this conference is to bring together practicing engineers and advanced researchers to share the state-of-the-art around interoperability in the IoT, analyse what is needed, and identify the work that lies ahead to increase the number of interoperable IoT products.

The Conference on Interoperability in IoT solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas:
- coexistence and interoperability
- experimental results on interoperability
- standardization activities around interoperability
- novel protocols and techniques which favor interoperability
- studies on interoperability between different protocols, hardware and technologies
- gap analysis on interoperability
- architectures enabling interoperability, virtualization
- novel architectures for interoperability testing
- tools and testbeds to support interoperability testing
- open-source projects around interoperability in IoT
- interoperability between different IoT implementations
- survey on interoperability and heterogeneity in IoT infrastructures

Papers should be up to 12 pages in length, using the Springer formatting. All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library. See for detailed instructions.
