IoT is a wide and rapidly developing area. Numerous IoT research and application projects have been done by universities, or in joint industry-university consortia in recent years. However an important question is on value creation for industry.

IoT applications in the sense of this industry workshop are solutions using IoT technologies to improve industrial manufacturing processes, enable new and efficient ways to do operate production plants, create new service or supervision means for industrial installations, offer an optimized infrastructure, reduce operational cost or improve human safety in industrial areas. From an industry point of view value creation form IoT applications and sustainability are essential. How these problems will be addressed and solved will influence the use of IoT technologies in the industry, on a larger scale, in the coming years.

The workshops intents to bring together experts from around the world to discuss and stimulate ideas, share experience on IoT applications and value creation for industry and to address and highlight with priority two major topics:

1. IoT in industry: experience, trends, challenges

2. IoT creating value in industrial applications

The workshop is intended to contribute to a IoT supported paradigm change in manufacturing, industrial service and over life sustainable industrial activities.

Without public IP addresses, the Internet of Things capabilities would be greatly reduced.Most discussions about IoT have been based on the illusionary assumption that the IP address space is an unlimited resource or it’s even taken for granted that IP is like oxygen produced for free by nature. Hopefully, the next generation of Internet Protocol, also known as IPv6 brings a solution. Expanding the IPv4 protocol suite with larger address space and defining new capabilities restoring end to end connectivity, and end to end services, several IETF working groups have worked on many deployment scenarios with transition models to interact with IPv4 infrastructure and services. They have also enhanced a combination of features that were not tightly designed or scalable in IPv4 like IP mobility, ad hoc services; etc catering for the extreme scenario where IP becomes a commodity service enabling lowest cost networking deployment of large scale sensor networks, RFID, IP in the car, to any imaginable scenario where networking adds value to commodity.

With the exception of very few IPv6 experts, none of the previous discussions or research papers talked explicitly about the IPv4 address crunch and its impact on IoT or the open standards needed for its scalability, let alone ever mentioning IPv6 and its advanced IETF developments such as IPv6 adaptation layer over IEEE 802. 15. 4 (including header compression) known as 6LoWPAN or IPv6 Routing Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks (RPL) as the way forward.

This International workshop wishes to restore some sanity in this area discussing the open and scalable architecture model. When embedding networking capabilities in “things”, there are architectural decisions to be made that guarantees the “Internet of Things” is scalable, inclusive of several communication media, secure, future proof and viable for businesses and end-users. Several models can be discussed, (as reviewed below) but one clearly emerges as the best approach.

Title: Catch the Drops, Make an Ocean

Speaker: Dr. Mojca Volk, Ljubljana, Slovenia. The vision of having a variety of gadgets and sensors attached to your body while consulting your virtual doctor is no longer a futuristic dream, it is the reality waiting at the door to be let into our lives. After decades of science fiction, the technology is finally here for the consumers – a smart phone with GPS, environment sensors and a camera in every pocket, a variety of Internet-enabled medical and wellbeing sensors and other wearable gadgets at affordable prices, ubiquitous mobile broadband connectivity, and unlimited storage capacities and processing powers capable of recording and sequencing unimaginable quantities of data. The ability to capture large quantities of seemingly unrelated data about our body, habits, behaviors, intake, surrounding environments, communication and social activity and all kinds of other information will give answers to our personal wellbeing and quality of life. This paves the way to radical transformation in healthcare and wellbeing and the grand innovation is yet to take its place – the immense person print databanks and powerful complex event processing and big data algorithms are the key to breaking our code.


Title: IOT Technology in the Operating Theatre

Speaker: Dr. Ing. Armin Schneider, Munich, Germany: RFID tracking in medicine and data logging as well as use of mobile devices in medicine is spreading rapidly.  RFID can help to prevent errors in the operation theatre and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of health care. The research group MITI has been working closely with industry to increase automation and reduce human error.


Title: A reference Architecture for the Internet of Things

Speaker: Dr. Sebastian Lange, Berlin, Germany: IoT-A, the European Lighthouse Integrated Project addressing the Internet-of-Things Architecture, proposes the creation of an architectural reference model together with the definition of an initial set of key building blocks. Together they are envisioned as crucial foundations for fostering a future Internet of Things. Using an experimental paradigm, IoT-A will combine top-down reasoning about architectural principles and design guidelines with simulation and prototyping to explore the technical consequences of architectural design choices.

Statement of goals for the workshop

The aim of the workshop is to share and broaden knowledge and experiences of IoT for food and agricultural industry. During the past decade, consumers have expressed concerns about food quality and safety. Consumers pay more attention to the quality and freshness of the food they consume. Compared with other industries, however, maintaining consistent levels of product quality in the food and agriculture industry is known to be difficult due to the extensive reliance on environmental elements (e. g., weather, soils, and water). In this regard, the role of IoT, including sensor network and RFID technology is considered more important in food and agricultural industry. Presently, the utilization of IoT in the food industry is lagging compared to most other industries. Operations (production, processing, storage, distribution, and management) for this industry, are dispersed globally, and hence require increased dependence on IoT. Therefore, the food and agricultural industries need to attempt to increase their adoption of IoT.

This workshop intends to provide an insight into IoT for the food industry and its related business areas, including agriculture, fishery, cold chain, retailing, and so forth. It addresses various aspects of the role of IoT from diverse perspectives from both academia and practitioners.

Title: IoT for Food and Agriculture Industry: Quality and Safety Management for Ginseng

Abstract: Food traceability has been critical issues in many countries, including South Korea. Product traceability information, including production, processing, logistics and distribution, strongly influences consumers’ buying behavior. Consumer’s concerns about food quality and safety can be alleviated though food traceability systems adoption. Korean government launched its first food traceability systems in 2003, expecting to enhance the international competitiveness of Korea’s agricultural products. Since then, the Korean government initiated many new projects for food quality and safety based on RFID and sensor network technology. Ginseng is one of the most important agri-products for both domestic international markets in Korea. In An IoT project for Ginseng was carried out to guarantee the product quality and safety in 2005, but it was not successful. The Korean government investigates difficulties of the systems development, and challenges the same project again. The presentation shows Korean government’s efforts for Food quality and safety using RFID and sensor network, especially focusing on Ginseng.

Title: The Internet of Things and Sustainable Agriculture

Abstract: Agriculture, the oldest industry in human society, remains vitally important today: besides providing sustenance, it is a major source of employment, and has a huge affect on the environment as a consequence of it use of water, land, energy, fertilizer, and pesticides.  Once produce has left the farm, it is subject to steady degradation of quality and eventually may become unhealthy.  Modern technology provides many ways to minimize these problems and maximize the value of the food, but they all depend for effectiveness on timely and accurate input concerning the state of food and its surroundings (soil, storage conditions, etc.).  Wireless sensors can play a major role in providing this information, but they must be inexpensive, easily deployed, and in some cases small enough to insert into individual food items or even plants without disturbance.  This presentation will present some recent technological progress toward this goal.

 Title: Clear up the Data Cloud (hopefully) for IoT

Abstract: From one perspective, what's interesting about IoT is the ability to turn Thing into Data. What one can do with Data largely determines the success of IoT. The two aspects of computing technology, namely ease of use and efficiency, are still the key to supporting IoT applications. In this talk, I will venture into examining a number of characteristics of the data from the IoT, and discuss the concept of Data Cloud that is based on a number of data technologies, including those on the Cloud Computing platform, for the purpose of providing a supporting data layer for IoT.

Title: The Controversy of Cloud Computing

Speaker: Dr. DengKan

Abstract: Cloud computing has been a buzz word for several years. However, there are some controversies both in term of business and technology. In this talk we will enumerate and elaborate those disagreements, especially the significant ones, discussing their root causes and business impact, but focusing more on the comparison of the technical solution alternatives. Those significant disagreements include, 1. Is virtualization mandatory? 2. Should computation and storage be separated into different nodes? 3. Will the file system be obsolete when object storage becomes popular? 4. How far can No-SQL replace RDBMS? 5. Why not Google disclose its cloud scheduler, Borg?

Title: Delivering the predictive enterprise

Abstract: Various studies show that predictive enterprises can earn an incremental ROI of more than 200 percent by using Big Data capabilities to examine large and complex data sets.

Title: From Multi-Cores to Clouds, Challengers and Opportunities with ProActive Parallel Suite

Abstract: This presentation will give an overview of issues at hand when accelerating demanding applications with Multi-Cores, Clusters, Servers

and Clouds. With ProActive Parallel Suite, an Open Source library for parallel, distributed, and concurrent computing, allowing to showcase Interactive and graphical GUI and tools, it will detail how one can reduce administration costs and hardware expenditures by virtualizing the hardware resources: monitor and control all resources in a uniform manner, appropriately schedule the distribution of taskflows and applications execution over the available resources. Then, the presentation explains how to manage actual VMs in such an infrastructure, including operations such as Start, Stop, Clone, Destroy. Overall, it is shown how simple it is now to dynamically aggregate and manage many different kinds of enterprise resources (Desktop, Server, Cluster, VMs), and seamlessly upon demand, to extend them with Public Clouds (e.g. Amazon EC2).
