*Conference Description*
The Internet of Things (IoT) enables network objects of the most diverse types to dynamically cooperate and make their resources available in order to reach a common goal. Such a paradigm is currently revolutionizing a variety of fields, facilitating and improving human life and work. Indeed, IoT will be one of the founding pillars for a connected society, a super-smart people-centric society in which both economic prosperity and resolution of societal challenges are achieved.
The main challenge of a connected society is to develop people-centric applications, where the presence of intelligent tools can augment the capabilities of the objects in constructing a relationship with users and exploit the user preferences to construct personalized services. This leads to a variety of conflicting requirements and technical challenges for the development of a connected society: on the one side, it is required that the mechanisms to retrieve information, distribute content and manage knowledge are improved; on the other side, it is essential to deal with data protection, privacy, and access control. Moreover, it is important to define methodologies and algorithms to analyze and exploit the context in which users live and work.
Contributions are solicited on all advanced research issues in these contexts, and particularly on (but not limited to) the following topics:
• Human-centric and context-aware IoT, including societal impacts and sustainable development: mostly related to active and collaborative sensing, models of context and context awareness, IoT solutions to promote accessibility, people-centric applications, location-aware systems and services, Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE)
• Next generation IoT architectures: mainly focused on cloud- and fog- based networking, cloud and mobile cloud architectures, implementation of Social IoT solutions, new design paradigms in human-machine interaction, Information-centric Networking (ICN), big data, analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), signal processing enabled by an IoT approach
• Advanced wireless communications and networks: Sigfox, LoRa, 5G, narrowband IoT, Software Defined Networking (SDN), Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Cognitive Radio networks, knowledge-defined networking
• Applications, services and real implementations: contributions coping with IoT applications, systems, and testbeds for connected society, Active and Assisted Living, smart factories and Industry 4.0, smart grid and energy management, smart environments, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Tactile Internet
• Security, privacy and data protection: mainly related to Intrusion Detection Systems, malware detection, multimedia forensics, privacy-preserving data processing techniques, safety and security preservation
