PerIoT 2017 : First International Workshop on Mobile and Pervasive Internet of Things (PerIoT 2017)
Call For Papers
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm that is rapidly gaining ground in the scenario of modern wireless telecommunications. The IoT enables large numbers of previously unconnected devices to communicate and exchange data and deal with services that span areas from healthcare to transportation and much more, with the potential for significant benefits to people and quality of life. The IoT would also enable a range of new capabilities and services far beyond today’s offerings, which will radically change the lifestyles of future human generation. In recent years, Internet has become increasingly pervasive. Besides allowing people to connect anytime and everywhere to achieve pervasiveness and allow mobility, the Internet is evolving into the communication medium for objects that are embedded in the real world. The coupling among mobile technology, embedded smart objects and a worldwide pervasive communication infrastructure constitutes the Mobile and Pervasive Internet of Things. The mobile and pervasive IoT enables a detailed characterization of the real physical applications, as well as a rich set of pervasive interactions with the physical world. As such, it has the potential to revolutionize future pervasive applications and influence the real world entities to achieve better quality of life for future generation of mankind. We invite original research contributions that advance the state of the art posing a new direction or present a controversial point of view. PerIoT will be held in conjunction with IEEE PerCom 2017.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
System architectures for IoT targeted to pervasive scenarios and mobile applications
Middleware and platforms for IoT based mobile and pervasive applications
Security and privacy in mobile and pervasive IoT scenarios
Interoperability of protocols for IoT, mobile and pervasive systems
Context awareness in the mobile and pervasive IoT
Mobility management in the communication protocols of pervasive IoT
Experiences in building mobile and pervasive IoT platforms
Mobile and pervasive applications built on top of IoT
Enabling technologies and standards for IoT
Routing protocol for low power and lossy networks (RPL) in IoT
Power consumption and optimization in IoT
IoT platforms for BigData and Data analytics on mobile and pervasive environments
Fault-tolerance and reliability in mobile and pervasive IoT applications
Submission and Registration:
Authors are invited to submit regular (full) papers for presentation at the workshop, describing original, previously unpublished work, which is not currently under review by another workshop, conference, or journal. Regular papers should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the workshop.
Papers may be no more than 6 pages in length. Papers in excess of page limits shall not be considered for review or publication. All papers must be typeset in double-column IEEE format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper, with all fonts embedded. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE Computer Society website. Submissions must be made via EDAS.
It is a requirement that all authors listed in the submitted paper are also listed in EDAS. The author section of EDAS will be locked after the workshop submission deadline to ensure that conflict-of-interest can be properly enforced during review. If the list of authors differs between the paper and EDAS, the paper may not be reviewed. The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered at full rate for that paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled for presentation.
Each accepted paper will require a full PERCOM conference registration (no registration is available for workshops only).
