Call for Papers
International Workshop on Internet of Things (IoT) Enabling Technologies
Embracing Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communications and Beyond
Paris, France, 1 April, 2012

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel design paradigm rapidly gaining wide global attention from academia, industries, and governments. The fundamental concept is to emphasize the ubiquitous computing among global networked machines and physical objects, denoted as things, such as RFID tags, sensors, actuators, machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, mobile phones, etc. Several enabling technologies shape the materialization of this paradigm, including wireless/wired sensing, extremely heterogeneous networking of constrained and mobile devices, radically novel network architectures, computing and control, thus building together a feasible complex cyber physical systems (CPS) to support diverse applications, including smart grid, e-health, intelligent transportation, and logistics, etc.

IoT-ET 2012 is a new event focusing on key enablers for IoT, especially M2M communications and networking, that aims at providing a forum that brings together researchers from academia, practitioners from industry, standardization bodies, and government to meet and exchange ideas on recent research work, point out the directions for future research, and seek collaboration opportunities on all aspects of the IoT enabling technologies. We are looking for papers that present new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss strategies, including standardization and regulation for resolving open problems spanning all aspects of an IoT system, such as scalability, wide-area coverage, sustainability, energy-efficiency, spectral-efficiency, heterogeneity, cooperation,
and security. Furthermore, application-oriented demos and prototypes are also highly encouraged.


Scope and Objectives:
* System architecture and components
* Performance assessment and management (QoS, scalability, reliability)
* Radio/wireline, long/short range access network technologies
* Channel and traffic models
* Real-time and historical data management
* RFID, sensors, actuator technologies
* Human-device interactions
* Security, trust, and privacy issues for devices and services
* Middleware
* Spectrum management for M2M/IoT radio communications
* Mobility management
* Naming, address management and End-to-End Addressability
* Object, device and service management
* Cloud computing interworking
* Semantic technologies
* Applications, services, and business models
* Sustainable design and technologies (e.g. energy-efficiency)
* Test-beds and field trials
* Standardization and regulatory issues
