The myriads of new Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices mushroom around us every year, slowly but steadily forming the infrastructure for the smart future and contributing to improving the way we live and act. The traditional IoT and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication solutions and technologies are often implemented as best-effort with providing no or very limited Quality-of-Service (QoS), security features and reliability control. However, in the recent years more and more applications imposing these features do appear. Among these are, for example, the variety of industrial IoT applications including the critical infrastructure area monitoring. For this reason, the workshop provides a forum to discuss the various issues, trade-offs, methods, and practical experiences related to the current state and the further improvement of security, reliability and dependability of IoT in general, and the wearables, as an important part of today’s IoT, in particular. Even though the primary focus of the workshop is on the reliable and secure wireless communication for IoT and wearables, the papers addressing other relevant aspects (e.g., computing, sensing, localizing or design methodologies) also fill within the scope of interest of the forum. The Workshop is targeted to bring together top specialists and stimulate the cutting-edge research discussions among academic researchers and industrial from all around the world.
Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length original and previously unpublished papers. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at last two members of the Scientific Programme Committee. The congress organizers reserve the right to not include a paper to the Proceedings if the congress registration fee is not paid or if the paper is not presented on the ICUMT 2019 congress.
