International Workshop on Internet of Things (deadline Aug 25)

25 August 2013 00:00

First International Workshop on Internet of Things
In Conjunction with
THE 9th IEEE International Conference on Collaborative Computing: Networking, Applications and Worksharing (CollaborateCom 2013)
October 20th, 2013
Austin, Texas

The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a fascinating and emerging computing concept and perspective for the next Internet where everyday physical objects are seamlessly integrated to the Internet through the exploitation of data capture and communication capabilities. IoT makes those physical objects “smart”, allowing them to actively participate in Internet-based business and social processes. With IoT, the physical world becomes one big information system. Some interesting example applications in this area include smart cities, smart farms, and smart manufacturing just to name a few.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to share their experiences and results on the recent advances in theory, application and implementation of the Internet of Things. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Architecture and infrastructure
System design, modeling, and evaluation
Cyber physical systems and pervasive computing
Intelligent information processing and management
Intelligent information discovery, retrieval and mining on IoT
Security, privacy, and trust
IoT applications, services, and tools
Standards and social issues
Mashup and integration
Social computing and mass-collaboration
Business models and processes for IoT
