S-IoT 2016 : 2016 IEEE Workshop on Scalable Internet of Things
Call For Papers
The 2016 IEEE Workshop on Scalable Internet of Things (S-IoT)
11-13 April - Cairo, Egypt
in conjunction with the international conference on selected topics in Mobile and Wireless Networking (MoWNet’2016)
The Internet of things (IoT) started to grip traction beyond anyone has imagined. IoT revolves around device-to-device communication and getting billions of devices communicate with each other autonomously in a scalable fashion. IoT is build on cloud computing technologies and networks of real time data-gathering sensors. IoT doesn’t function without cloud-based applications that interpret and transmit data coming from heterogeneous sensors. However, the real value of IoT is not about collecting and analyzing streams of data, but rather on creating innovative techniques and mechanisms that turn this data into actions.
The S-IoT workshop is intended to create a platform for researchers, developers, and practitioners in current IoT and ubiquitous computing from academia, industry, and service providers to share and discuss their ideas, experiences, challenges, and practical implementations related to the Internet of Things. We encourage high quality submissions addressing current challenges and proposing novel research directions. We invite technical research papers, industrial papers, position papers, and tool demonstration papers.
The topics of interest include, but not limited to:
- IoT infrastructure stack
- Data aggregation and middleware architecture
- Rule-based end-user programming
- IoT end-user APIs § Emerging IoT applications
- IoT-oriented cloud architectures and deployments
- Mobility support for ubiquitous data access
- Mobile data and storage architectures
- Software architecture and design for IoT
- Context management in ubiquitous IoT scenarios
- Mobile sensing Big Data: paradigms and techniques
- Localization mechanisms and algorithms
- Computation offloading: strategies and techniques
- Performance evaluation of IoT techniques and models
- Reliability, availability, and scalability in ubiquitous IoT
- Energy and resource optimization in IoT
- Privacy and security protections in IoT scenarios
Submission of research papers due: February 15, 2016
Notification of paper acceptance: February 30, 2016
Submission of camera-ready papers: March 15, 2016
Papers should be written in English. Manuscripts should be no more than 8 pages, double column, IEEE style including tables, figures and references. Please use either the IEEE Word or LaTex templates and instructions provided by IEEE. Papers must be submitted by February 15, 2016 using EDAS (http://edas.info/N21948). Papers meeting these requirements will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member.
