International Workshop on IoT Real-World Deployments and Testbeds

International Workshop on IoT Real-World Deployments and Testbeds

Leuven, Belgium
July 24-26, 2017
In Conjunction with MobiSPC’2017 

Workshop Scope

Internet of Things is gaining industry and research traction over the last years as a potential convergence of previously and newly connected heterogeneous networks. IoT is projected to reach 50-200 billion devices by 2020 and industry and academia have been engaging in multiple technologies evaluation for IoT. 

In this workshop we are focusing on PoCs, pre-commercial deployments and technology evaluation for various wired/wireless technologies for the IoT. We also focus on the lessons learnt and results obtained from these deployments. We are seeking new and unpublished papers in the field of architectures, protocols, and services for the IoT with a special focus on current and future deployment and testbeds. They should contribute to at least one of the following aspects: 

(1) Identifying and solving open technical problems related to the IoT.
(2) Performing thorough evaluation and comparison of existing proposals, standards or technologies.
(3) Addressing integrative aspects towards autonomous real-world IoT deployment.
(4) Enabling new services and sensor interoperability.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:  
  • IoT architecture design and optimizations
  • System optimization to support Ultra-Low complexity devices
  • Standardized semantic data description framework and technologies
  • Experience and lessons learnt from large scale pilots and testbeds.
  • IoT standards platforms interworking
  • IoT systems interoperability
  • IoT standards gap analysis
  • 5G Networks and IoT
  • IoT security for massive IoT deployments
  • Software Defined Networks (SDN) and IoT
  • Low Power-Wide Area technologies and networks development and deployments
  • Wired and wireless technology evaluation for IoT
  • Factory of Things and Industrial Internet of Things (I-IoT)
  • Edge Computing, Fog Computing and IoT
  • IPv6-based IoT Networks
  • Novel algorithms for IoT protocols such as IPv6, 6LoWPAN, RPL, 6TiSCH, WoT
  • 6Lo and emerging IETF and IRTF protocols for IoT and LPWA
