IoT-SoS 2013
Second IEEE Workshop on the
Internet of Things: Smart Objects and Services

co-located with IEEE WoWMoM 2013
sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society

June 4, 2013
Madrid, Spain


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. Such a vision is also
becoming known under the name of Machine-to-Machine (M2M), where the
absence of human interaction in the system dynamics is further stressed.

Many applications with high social and business impact fall under the
IoT/M2M 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, two of the most important challenges are:
i) the definition of architectures, protocols and algorithms for an
efficient interconnection of smart objects, both between themselves and
with the (Future) Internet; and ii) the creation of value-added
services, esp. 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 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/M2M
- Communication protocols for the IoT/M2M
- Service platforms for the IoT/M2M
- Enabling technologies and standards for the IoT/M2M
- Mobility management
- Context awareness
- Sustainable design
- Location-based services and geographic information systems
- Experimental prototypes and large-scale testbed infrastructures
- Performance evaluation of IoT/M2M solutions
- Convergence with the Internet of Services
- Applications, including: eHealth/mHealth; Smart Grid/Smart Metering;
connected consumer; fleet management; surveillance; Intelligent
Transportation Systems; Smart House/Neighborhood/City
- Business development and processes
- Industrial use cases showing gaps to be filled by future research

All submissions must describe original research, not published or
currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal.
Papers must be submitted electronically to EDAS by February 28, 2013,
11:59pm EST. You can find detailed submission instructions at Submission implies
the willingness of at least one author to attend the workshop and
present the paper. Accepted papers will be included in the main
proceedings of IEEE WoWMoM 2013 and published by IEEE.
