International Workshop on Pervasive Internet of Things and Smart Cities
Call For Papers: International Workshop on Pervasive Internet of Things and Smart Cities (PITSaC-2013) http://ants.inf.um.es/pitsac
To be held in conjunction with the 27th International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA2013) http://www.aina-conference.org/2013 Barcelona, Spain, March 2013
Submission deadline: October 15th, 2012
This workshop aims at gathering researchers and developers from the fields of the Internet of Things, Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing and Smart Cities to discuss the technologies and research challenges associated to new applications and services in Smart Livable Cities.
The Internet of Things is a key enabler for the realization of smart cities as it allows for the pervasive interaction with/between the smart things leading to an effective integration of information into the digital world. These smart (mobile) things – which are instrumented with sensing, actuation, and interaction capabilities - have the means to exchange information and influence the real world entities and other actors of a smart city eco-system in real time, forming a smart pervasive computing environment to achieve a more livable city.
Pervasive Internet of Things and Smart Cities (PITSaC) is an International Workshop focused on the extension and integration aspects of the secure Internet of Things and pervasive computing technologies. The objective is to reach a global access to the services and information through, on the one hand, the so-called Web of Things and on the other hand, the efficient support for global communications, in order to embrace the machine to machine (M2M) communications in the future Internet of Things composed of IPv6 network and various smart things. This workshop will also address further issues such as the adaptation of legacy technologies and RFID to IPv6 and the Future Internet of Things, security and privacy requirements in Smart Cities and the design of a secure and privacy-aware Internet of Things as well as the definition of new advanced architectures and models for the Internet and its application to smart livable Cities.
The tracks and topics that are considered, but not limited to, are the following:
Tracks & Topics:
Architectures for the Internet of Things - Architectures for the Internet of Things - Future technologies bridging the physical and virtual worlds - End to End / Machine to Machine (M2M) protocols - Cloud computing and things internetworking
Web of Things - Web of Things and Semantic - Experiences with Open Platforms and hardware within IoT - Embedded Web Services (CoAP / Lightweight SOAP) - Lightweight data structured (EXI)
Pervasive IoT - Location and discovery of things on the Internet - Applications and interaction for social networking - Novel concepts such as Crowd-sourcing - User-oriented, context-aware IoT services - Semantic technologies for devices and services
Security, Trust, Privacy and Identity - Lightweight implementations of cryptographic stacks - Trust, security and privacy in IoT and Smart Cities - End to end security capabilities from the things - Identity, Naming and addressability issues - Privacy issues and technologies for the Internet of Things
Smart cities - Business models and new services for smart cities - Mobile computing and smart phones interaction - Efficient resource management (water, energy…) - Building automation and smart buildings - Smart cities deployments, test-beds and field trials
