IN CONJUNCTION WITH ICDCS2017
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the latest Internet evolution that incorporates billions of Internet-connected devices that range from cameras, sensors, RFIDs, smart phones, and wearables, to smart meters, vehicles, medication pills, signs and industrial machines. Such IoT things are often owned by different organizations and people who are deploying and using them for their own purposes. Federations of such IoT devices (referred to as IoT things) can also deliver timely and accurate information that is needed to solve internet-scale problems that have been too difficult to tackle before.
To realize its enormous potential, IoT must provide IoT solutions for discovering needed IoT devices, collecting and integrating their data, and distilling the high value information each application needs. Such IoT solutions must be capable of filtering, aggregating, correlating, and contextualising IoT information in real-time, on the move, in the cloud, and securely and must be capable of introducing data-driven changes to the physical world.
The IoTCA Workshop solicits paper submissions and aims to bring together researchers and application developers working on the intersection of IoT with distributed, cloud, internet, mobile, ambient, semantic, real-time, secure and privacy-preserving computing. We also aim to explore the application of novel IoT computing results and describe and assess their impact. Therefore, in addition to encouraging novel and innovative, even early stage, unpublished work to be submitted in the research track of this workshop, we also provide a smart application track and encourage submissions describing novel IoT applications that aim to solve real wold problems via any IoT computing technology.
Topics of interest in the research track include all aspects of platforms, architectures, models, designs, implementations, simulations, measurements and assessments in the following IoT areas (but not necessary limited to these):
Topics of interest in the smart applications track include all aspects of, but not limited to:
Dimitrios Georgakopoulos, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Rajiv Ranjan, Newcastle University, United Kingdom (email@example.com )
Schahram Dustdar, TU Wein, Austria
Deepak Puthal, University of Technology Sydney, Australia (Deepak.Puthal@csiro.au)
Authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished research solutions and/or smart applications not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing IoT state-of-the-art. Papers must be submitted electronically via the link above. The length of papers must be no more than 6 pages in the IEEE double-column format (everything including references and ack. should be included in the 6 pages). The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the e-mail and postal addresses of the author(s). Each submission will receive three reviews. At least one of the authors of every accepted paper must register and present the work at the workshop. The PC will select some of the best papers and invite them for publication in related journals (TBD).
