Internet of Things, Smart-cities and Fog computing are representative examples of modern ICT paradigms that aim to describe a dynamic and global cooperative infrastructure built upon objects intelligence and self-configuring capabilities; these connected objects are finding their way into vehicles (smart-cars), urban areas (smart-cities) and infrastructure (smart-grid).
Objects need to be smart, with enough intelligence and sensors to perform required operations. They must be able to wirelessly communicate with other nodes or remote centre in their network, exchanging information and receiving instructions in a reliable and secure way. They must be autonomous, capable of managing the energy resources in order to extend their lifetime span. Considered objects may include everything from lightweight sensors to smart-gadgets like smartphones and wearable devices.
The increased smartness of the participating objects is crucial to solve the issues derived from the required cooperation and possibly unpredictable and intense mobility. The objects can move in many different ways, covering transportation means from (i) terrestrial, like cars or trains, to (ii) aerial like drones or planes, and (iii) underwater ships. But even static objects should be flexible enough to efficiently handle on-off patterns imposed for energy savings.
The SMARTOBJECTS workshop focuses on experiences with the design, implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of novel communication approaches and systems for smart objects in the emerging cooperative environments. We are therefore seeking original, previously unpublished papers empirically addressing key issues and challenges in the smart objects arena.
