CALL FOR PAPERS
Seventh IEEE Workshop on the
Internet of Things: Smart Objects and Services
co-located with IEEE WoWMoM 2018
June 12, 2018
EDAS Submission Link: http://edas.info/N24373
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm which is shaping the
evolution of the future Internet. According to the vision underlying the
IoT, the next step in increasing the ubiquity of the Internet, after
connecting people anytime and everywhere, is to connect inanimate
objects. By providing objects with embedded communication capabilities
and a common addressing scheme, a highly distributed and ubiquitous
network of seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices is formed, which
can be fully integrated into the current Internet and mobile networks,
thus allowing for the development of new intelligent services available
anytime, anywhere, by anyone and anything.
Many applications with high social and business impact fall under the
IoT umbrella, including personal healthcare, smart grid, surveillance,
home automation, intelligent transportation, while it is expected that
new ones will emerge once the enabling technologies reach a stable state.
At the moment, four of the most important challenges are:
- Architectures, protocols and algorithms for an efficient
interconnection of smart objects, both between themselves and with
the (future) Internet within the 5G context.
- The creation of value-added services in cross-domain applications,
especially open and interoperable, enabled by the interconnection of
things / machines / smart objects, in such a way that they can be
integrated with current and new business and development processes.
- The support of a virtualized IoT based on the concepts of virtualized
components and functions within dense and heterogeneous environments.
- Security, privacy and trust in the IoT applications, for ensuring that
the provided services will protect the users' data, provide guarantees
that no malicious users/devices will affect the system decisions and
that the IoT applications will be secure and privacy-preserving
The aim of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and
researchers from both academia and industry in order to have a forum for
discussion and technical presentations on the recent advances in theory,
application and implementation of the Internet of Things concept:
technologies, protocols, algorithms, and services.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- System architectures for the IoT
- Protocols and mechanisms for seamless IoT communications
- Modeling and simulation of large-scale IoT scenarios
- Enabling standards and technologies for the IoT
- Service platforms for IoT applications
- Business models and processes for IoT applications
- Energy optimization and sustainable operation of IoT devices
- Access network issues; including mobility management, data
dissemination and routing
- Testbeds for the IoT
- Security, privacy and Trust in the IoT context
- Experiences with IoT system prototypes and pilots
- Novel and emerging IoT applications; including eHealth/mHealth,
Smart Grid/Smart-Metering, Intelligent Transportation Systems,
- Industrial use cases showing gaps to be filled by future research
- Ethical issues in the IoT applications
- Optimized and robust dynamic spectrum access on IoT
- Integration of IoT with Cloud and Fog computing
- Emerging communication technologies for IoT,
e.g. Low Power WAN and D2D
- Protocols and architectures for Industrial IoT
