The 2015 International Workshop on Internet of Things towards Applications
Co-located with ACM SenSys 2015, Seoul, South Korea

The notion of "Internet of Things" has emerged as a last-mile solution for
connecting various cyber technologies to our everyday life. It envisions a
world in which the sensor devices could exist in any form factor, anywhere,
in which all the sensory data will be made available to the Internet, and
be readily accessible to a wide range of applications. The sensor devices
are usually attached to physical objects, providing a real-time,
interactive view of the physical world. Although much progress has been
made at the system and sensing level, applications for these platforms are
considerably lagging behind. Without compelling applications, the vision of
the Internet of Things will not be realized.

The 2015 International Workshop on Internet of Things towards Applications (
IoT-App'15) aims to provide a forum for researchers to present thoughts and
results on IoT applications. We are looking for application descriptions,
development, experiences and evaluation in a wide range of domains
including, but not limited to homes, offices, medical care, vehicles,
transportation, supply chains and education. Particularly, we are
interested in identifying new applications that are made possible by the
Internet of Things, as well as new challenges these applications will pose
to the design of an Internet of Things.


= Novel IoT applications and services
= Application-driven IoT middleware
= Mobility and network connectivity in IoT applications
= Cloud and/or cloudlet support for IoT applications
= Machine learning, data mining and big data analytics
= Energy efficiency
= Security and privacy
= Experiences in developing and deploying operational IoT applications and

We invite technical papers describing original ideas, ground-breaking
results, and/or real-world experiences involving innovative IoT applications.
Successful submissions will elaborate one or multiple desirable properties
as follows: 1) Provide a quantitative analysis of outstanding systems
challenges highlighted by the application; 2) Have a quantitative estimate
of cost savings relative to the status quo; 3) Make a compelling case that
the application will be disruptive. Submissions will be judged on
originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. In addition
to citing relevant, published work, authors must cite and relate their
submissions to relevant prior publications of the their own.


Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages in
PDF format, including figures, tables, and references, two-column format,
using 10-point font and 1 inch margin. Please consider using the
sig-alternate-10pt.cls. Papers should not be anonymous. Papers that do not
meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be
reviewed. Submitted papers must not be currently under review for any other
publication. Before submitting your paper, please check the description of
the conference scope. Accepted submissions will be available on the ACM
digital library at least one week before the conference. If you have any
questions, you can send e-mail to the PC chair
