Call for Workshops

New deadline for submissions April 15

The deadline for workshop submissions has been extended until April 15. The conference will take place on its original dates in October. There will be an opportunity to present virtually, for anyone who cannot or chooses not to travel and. Should that worst-case scenario happen, workshop organizers will be supported in setting up the workshop.

Further, as a response to the current COVID-19 situation, we will accept more “lightweight” submissions and then communicate directly with you on the development of the submissions.

You can submit a proposal that includes:

  • name of proposed workshop
  • name of organizers
  • a very short description of the workshop idea that includes a list of the topics planned to be in the CfP

Workshop chairs: Per Linde and Simon Mayer

About the call

Driven by connected low-cost sensing and actuation as well as the large range of scientifically and economically relevant application scenarios that they enable, the Internet of Things has become a central research area with a broad reach across many fields in information technology and adjacent domains. Particular challenges include the understanding of IoT application demands and novel network traffic types, low-latency and reliable communication, and integrating and mediating Things within intelligent systems, where IoT technologies are potential catalysts. The International Conference on Internet of Things (IoT) has become the premier gathering place where visionary, ground-breaking research in the IoT field meets leading industry experts. Since its beginnings in the year 2008, IoT has been backed by strong support from leading academic institutions as well as industry and we are happy to announce its 10th iteration that will take place from October 6-9, 2020 in Malmö, Sweden.

The main objective of the IoT 2020 workshops is to provide additional venues for discussing novel ideas and to stimulate and facilitate active exchange, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods and ideas related to different IoT areas. Our goal is to have a balanced workshop program which comprises workshop formats of different types and a combination of emerging and established topics. The workshops should provide an informal and vibrant forum for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and practical experiences.


Workshop Proposals and Information

IoT 2020 invites full-day and half-day workshop proposals with a clearly defined scope that falls in the general topics of the conference. We also encourage the submission of workshops that follow alternative formats such as hackathons, plugfests, demo jams, and breakout sessions.

The organizers of accepted workshops will be responsible for workshops’ reviewing processes and publicity with support from IoT 2020, which will announce all accepted workshops as collocated events on the conference website and via its publicity channels. IoT 2020 furthermore has the ambition for workshops to publish accepted papers in companion proceedings of the main conference, or arrange for another form of publication.

All workshop participants will be required to register for the full conference as well. At the discretion of the chairs, workshops may be cancelled if organizers have not registered in a timely manner or if a workshop has received too few submissions. Workshop organizers will receive one complimentary full conference registration.


Review Criteria

We will communicate directly with developing the proposal but the workshops topics should be in the general scope of IoT2020.

In case overlapping workshops are proposed, the Workshop Chairs may contact the organizers to discuss the possibility of merging workshops.
