Call for Papers

This conference brings leading researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry together to facilitate sharing of applications, research results, and knowledge. We are particularly interested in work addressing real-world implementation and deployment issues.

For the scientific track of the conference we solicit papers on subjects such as:

  • Novel services and applications in an Internet of Things (IOT)
  • Emerging IOT business models and process changes
  • Communication systems and network architectures for the IOT
  • Technologies and concepts for embedding sensing, actuation, communication, and computation into networked things
  • Experience reports from the introduction and operation of networked things in areas such as healthcare, logistics & transport
  • Security & privacy aspects of IOT infrastructures & applications

Springer Logo Submissions should not be longer than 18 pages and will be peer reviewed. Proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Paper submissions should be anonymized to facilitate blind review. See the Submission Instructions for details.

Important Dates:

  • Sep. 20, 2007, 11:59 EDT: Technical papers submissions deadline
  • Oct. 1, 2007: Workshop proposals due
  • Oct. 8, 2007: Workshop acceptance notification
  • Nov. 15, 2007: Technical papers acceptance notifications
  • Dec. 14, 2007: Technical papers camera-ready version due

The Call for Papers is also available as PDF: [DIN A4] [Letter]

Call for Workshop Proposals

We invite proposals for the workshop program of the first International Conference on the Internet of Things. Workshops provide a forum for people to discuss areas of special interest (e.g. novel services, business models, technologies, sensing/actuation concepts, security) with like-minded researchers and practitioners. Workshops aim at examining an area in a less formal, more open environment for the free exchange of views, and possibly more focused way than at the main track of the conference itself. The workshops will be held prior to the main conference on Wednesday, March 26, 2008.

Important Dates:

Due to several requests for an extended advertising and solicitation period for accepted workshops, we have moved the proposal submission deadline 3 weeks earlier, to October 1st. Notifications of accepted proposals will be sent out almost one month earlier as planned (October 8th), giving workshop organizers more than 3 months of time to advertise their workshop and to solicit submissions.

  • October 1, 2007: Workshop Proposals Deadline
    (you are welcome to contact the workshop chairs before submitting a proposal)
  • October 8, 2007: Notification of acceptance/rejection
  • October 12, 2007: Workshop calls online (by the organizers)

For accepted workshops, we suggest the following schedule (though organizers are of course free to set different deadlines). Note that the March 1 date for submitting the camera-ready papers of all workshops is firm:

  • January 12, 2008: Workshop paper submission deadline
  • February 9, 2008: Notification of acceptance/rejection of papers
  • March 1, 2008: Submission of final papers by the workshop organizers to WS-Chair (firm!)

Proposal Content

Workshop proposals should include:
  • Name of workshop and proposed URL of site to host CFP, program etc.
  • Theme of the workshop and topics of interest and how these relate to the overall conference
  • Preliminary Call for Papers
  • Names, affiliations, research interest, and a short bio (up to 200 words) of the organizers
  • Brief description (up to 1 page) of research issues that the workshop will address
  • Reasons why the workshop is of interest to the conference participants
  • Audience: expected number of participants, potential program committee members
  • Description of the publicity plan: how to attract participants and submissions
  • Planned format: participant selection, time line, type of contributions, discussions and integration of non-presenting participants
  • If appropriate, a description of past versions of the workshop, including: number of submitted and accepted papers, and number of attendees.
Potential workshop organizers should also note that:
  • One free registration per workshop is given. The information on the free registrant has to be provided to the Workshop Chair by February 15.

Submission Process

Please email your proposal to workshops@iot2008.org.

Pre-Proposal / Inquiries

Contact the workshop chair Florian Michahelles if you would like to discuss a workshop proposal (email: workshops@iot2008.org).

We solicit workshops in all areas related to the Internet of Things. In particular we would like to encourage workshops focused on new and emerging research directions, novel and highly innovative themes including end-consumer involvement through new concepts of interaction, real-world industrial and system topics, and interdisciplinary themes. The workshop proposal should be a maximum of 3 pages.

Workshop Organization

We encourage international workshop organizer teams from different institutions. We aim for a balanced workshop program trying to avoid overlapping themes. Organizers are expected to be active themselves in the field where they propose a workshop. Organizers are required to attend those workshops they are organizing. One free registration per workshop is given. The information on the free registrant has to be provided to the Workshop Chair by February 15. Any change to the workshop organization team must be submitted in writing at least two weeks prior to the paper deadline for individual workshops (January 15, 2008). No changes to the workshop organization team can be made after this date to ensure that potential participants submitting position papers to workshops are aware of the final organization team. Please feel free to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal by email with the workshop chair prior to submission.

Internet of Things 2008 Workshops are a complementary forum to the main conference, encouraging the presentation and discussion of work in progress and facilitating a dialogue on emerging topics in small groups. Workshop sessions will provide inspiring and influencing discussion on a variety of topics related to the Internet of Things.

We intend to publish successful submissions to all workshops in a single workshop proceedings volume.
