Workshop Theme:
IoT-based scientific research has recently become an imperative component in monitoring human daily lives. The IoT has created an explosion of sensor data due to the increased number of devices with embedded sensors. This ranges from smart watches and smartphones to healthcare wearable and head-mounted devices. The Internet has drastically changed the way we live, moving interactions between people at a virtual level in several contexts spanning from professional life to social relationships. The IoT has the potential to add a new dimension to this process by enabling communications with and among mobile phones and smart devices, thus leading to the vision of obtrusiveness, or in other words, "anytime, anywhere" computing and communications. Additionally, the IoT is a key enabler for the realization of future embedded world as it allows for the interactions with/between the tiny smart things leading to an effective integration of information into the digital world. The basic idea of this concept is the pervasive presence around us of a variety of things or objects - such as tiny sensors, actuators, mobile phones, u-things, etc. - which, through unique communication and interaction schemes, are able to communicate with each other and cooperate with their neighbors through wireless communication to provide quality services for users. The challenges and opportunities arising from a proper integration of the IoT with mobile computing and applications create a fascinating research field that deserves more in-depth investigations. One the one hand, mobile devices are expected to become the joining link between connected smart objects, the Internet, and end-users. Thus, the coupling among mobile technology, such objects and an embedded infrastructure constitutes the Mobile and Embedded Internet of Things. The smart IoT has the potential to revolutionize future software and hardware applications by influencing the real world to achieve better quality of life for the next generation.

Scope of the Workshop:
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 the area of embedded IoT. It furthermore serves as a forum for the research community to discuss open issues, novel solutions, and the future development of IoT applications. Submissions could consist of theoretical and applied research topics including, but not limited to:

  • System architectures for the IoT targeted to application scenarios
  • Wireless Energy Harvesting for the Internet of Things
  • Security and privacy in embedded IoT scenarios
  • Interoperability of protocols for IoT
  • Context awareness in the embedded IoT
  • Experiences in building embedded IoT platforms
  • Embedded systems and applications built using IoT
  • Enabling technologies and standards for the IoT
  • Routing protocol for low power and lossy networks (RPL) in IoT
  • Power consumption and optimization in embedded Iot
  • Fault tolerance and reliability in embedded IoT applications
  • Middleware and platforms for embedded IoT applications

This workshop seeks original, unpublished, high impact research manuscripts on all topics related to the development of IoT. Papers will be selected on the basis of novelty, technical merit, presentation effectiveness and impact of results.
