Call For Papers


1st International Workshop on Interoperability, Integration, and Interconnection of Internet of Things Systems (I4T)

jointly held with

IOTDI - 1st IEEE International Conference on Internet-of-Things Design and Implementation
April 4-6, 2016, Berlin, Germany

While still in his infancy, the IoT domain already lists a number of solutions implemented, ranging from devices to platforms. However, the heterogeneity at all levels of those solutions is preventing different systems to interoperate effectively, despite significant efforts in the development of a unique reference standard for IoT systems technology. The situation is likely to worsen in the near future, as lack of interoperability causes major technological and business-oriented issues such as impossibility to plug non-interoperable IoT devices into heterogeneous IoT platforms, impossibility to develop IoT applications exploiting multiple platforms in homogeneous and/or cross domains, slowness of IoT technology introduction at large-scale, discouragement in adopting IoT technology, increase of costs, scarce reusability of technical solutions, and user dissatisfaction. This Workshop aims at investigating such lack of interoperability in the IoT realm by welcoming paper submissions providing innovative research as well as technical contributions on providing solutions to interoperability, integration, and interconnection of heterogeneous IoT systems, at any level.

Areas of Interest
- Definition of interoperable and open IoT architectures
- Service Virtualization in the IoT
- Integration methods for heterogeneous IoT platforms
- Interconnection of heterogeneous IoT devices
- Interoperable and open Big Data models for IoT
- Matching non-interoperable IoT ontologies and semantics
- Security, privacy and trust in IoT systems integration
- Interoperability use cases in IoT application domains (m-Health, transportation and logistics, smart factory, smart grid) and cross-domain
- Standard interoperability mechanisms for the IoT

Submission Guidelines
Original work must be submitted that is not published or under submission elsewhere. Manuscripts may not exceed twelve (12) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11? pages (IEEE conference style:, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. The submission link is:

Review Process and Publication
All original submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, presentation, quality, interest and relevance to workshop scope. We also welcome papers reporting on industrial deployment experiences, case studies, and lessons learned. After review, some submissions may be offered to be published as short papers (six pages). Accepted papers will be part of the IoTDI 2016 proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing.

Journal Special Issue
Selected papers presented at the conference will be invited to a special issue organized in a premier International Journal (with SCI Index) that is under selection and/or in the Springer Series on Internet of Things.

Important Dates
December 1, 2015: Submission Deadline.
January 15, 2016: Acceptance/Rejection Notification.
January 31, 2016: Final camera-ready papers.
April 4, 2016: Workshop Takes Place.
