INTERNET OF THINGS 2012
3rd International Conference on the Internet of Things
October 24 - 26, 2012
University of Twente,
and Auto-ID Lab at ETH Zurich/University of St. Gallen
In what is called the Internet of Things (IoT), sensors and actuators embedded in physical objects — from containers to pacemakers — are linked through both wired and wireless networks to the Internet. When objects in the IoT can sense the environment, interpret the data, and communicate with each other, they become tools for understanding complexity and for responding to events and irregularities swiftly. The IoT is therefore seen by many as the ultimate solution for getting fine grained insights into business processes — in the real-world and in real-time. Started one decade ago as a wild academic idea, this interlinking of the physical world and cyberspace foreshadows an exciting endeavour that is highly relevant to researchers, corporations, and individuals.
The IoT connects a vast number of heterogeneous smart objects that cooperate to support manifold applications. This requires efficient use of scarce resource in order to adapt to a dynamically changing environment. Users, applications, and devices compete for resources such as processing time, memory, communication bandwidth, and sensors/actuators. Access among them will need to be constantly and dynamically negotiated.
Supporting IoT architectures, protocols, and technologies should be open, distributed and scalable, and integrate heterogeneous devices ranging from tiny sensors and actuators to mobile devices and large computers. Standardized infrastructures capable of managing, sharing, and processing these captured data will be necessary in order to bring the IoT into commercial use.
The IoT2012 conference will focus on these core research challenges.
The IoT conference series has become the major biennial event that brings internationally leading researcher and practitioners from both academia and industry together to facilitate the sharing of applications, research results, and knowledge. Building on the success of the last two conferences (2008 in Zurich and 2010 in Tokyo), the 3rd International Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT2012) will include a highly selective dual-track program for technical papers (acceptance rate (30%), accompanied by reports on business projects from seasoned practitioners, poster sessions summarizing late-breaking results, and hands-on demos of current technology. We invite submissions of original and unpublished work covering areas related to the IoT, in one or more of the following four categories: technical papers, posters, videos, and demonstrations.
IoT Topics of Interest
IoT 2012 welcomes submissions on the following topics:
IoT architectures and system design
IoT networking and communication
Circuit and system design for smart objects in the IoT
Novel IoT services and applications for society/corporations/individuals
Emerging IoT business models and corresponding process changes
Cooperative data processing for IoT
Social impacts such as security, privacy, and trust in the IoT
Work addressing real-world implementation and deployment issues is encouraged.

The conference solicits original and previously unpublished research and industrial papers. Submissions should be prepared in the IEEE conference proceedings format (up to 8 pages), and uploaded in PDF format via EDAS. Detailed submission instructions will be made available on the conference homepage.
