[DMANET] CFP - ComNet-IoT 2019

[Our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP ]

=== CALL FOR PAPERS - ComNet-IoT 2019 ===

The 8th International Workshop on Computing and Networking for IoT and
Beyond (ComNet-IoT 2019)

In conjunction with The 20th International Conference on Distributed
Computing & Networking (ICDCN 2019)

Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India, January 4, 2019

Internet of Things (IoT) is a paradigm that enables various machines,
physical devices, and objects, denoted as things, to interact
ubiquitously and autonomously such that our surroundings can be
monitored and controlled towards the betterment of human life. A
surrounding can be a home, office, shop, factory floor, even roads.
Thus, the betterment of human life can have different facades in
different situations. The concept has now further been extended to
Industry 4.0 and Tactile Internet, which are acting as catalysts to the
evolution of a new generation of services expected to have an immense
impact on the social and technological eco-system. It can be envisaged
that these next-generation systems and services will encompass several
domains such as e-Governance, Manufacturing, Retail, Health Care,
Transportation, Waste Management, Food Supply Chains, Energy &
Utilities, Insurance, etc. New technologies and applications built on
top of them must be developed in order to fulfill this vision of
Intelligent Infrastructure and Industry 4.0. The evolving Internet
concept poses a number of new challenges and opportunities for
computing, networking, data management and analytics due to the large
scale and complexity of such systems, and heterogeneity of the things
and networks, constrained by limited resources of the things and the
network and the requirement of extreme low latency in both computation
and communication.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to the following issues
related to IoT:

- System and network architectures, e.g., service oriented architecture
- Middleware for heterogeneous sensors, devices and protocols
- Quality of service (QoS) provisioning
- Sensing and sensor signal processing
- Localization and tracking
- RFID and RFID based track and trace
- Wireless networking protocols, e.g., RFID collision avoidance, MAC,
routing, etc.
- Energy harvesting and energy management
- Data management and analytics: data-stream, sharing, mining, semantic
interoperability, etc.
- Deep learning over sensor data to create intelligent systems
- Storage, management and analysis of data in Intelligent Infrastructures
- Business Intelligence from sensor data
- Back-end (cloud and fog/edge based) infrastructure
- Security issues: Data confidentiality, integrity, network resilience, etc.
- Participatory sensing, human behaviour modelling and Mobile Cloud
Computing for IoT/Industry 4.0
- Novel application developments and case studies, e.g., smart grid,
green building, healthcare, intelligent transportation/city, analytics
driven decision support systems, smart warehouse/retail infrastructures etc.
- Evolving technologies for Industry 4.0, tactile internet including new
computation paradigms and communication technologies
- Test-beds and field trials
