The Internet of Things (IoT) brings promising opportunities and challenges. It attracts great attentions, and has important economic and social values. IoT will play a key role in the next generation of information, network, and communication developing. Future IoT may bring us an era of “harmony of man with nature”, which means harmony fusion of Physical-space, Cyber-space, and Social-space. We will witness emancipation not only from onerous labor works brought by machine-human interface, but also from the spatial-temporal constrains in Physical-space, and will achieve substantial benefits from IT development.
The 2013 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings 2013) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the Internet of Things, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future. The iThings 2013 is the next edition of the successful series, previously held as iThings 2012 (Besançon, France), iThings 2011 (Dalian, China), IOTS 2010 (Hangzhou, China), MINES 2009 (Hangzhou, China), and MINES 2008 (Chengdu, China).
The scope of interest includes, but not limited to:
Track 1: Architecture and Infrastructure
Track 2: System Design Modeling and Evaluation
Track 3: Distributed Sensing and Control
Track 4: Networks and Communications
Track 5: Intelligent Data Processing and Ubiquitous Computing
Track 6: Intelligent Management
Track 7: Reliability, Security, Privacy and Trust
Track 8: Applications, Business, Standards, and Social Issues
3. Important Dates
Workshop Proposal: on going
Paper submission due: May 19, 2013
Author notification: June 20, 2013
Camera Ready due: July 10, 2013
4. Submission Information
Authors are invited to submit original papers that must not have been submitted to, or have been published in, any other workshop, conference, or journal. All papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and be evaluated for originality, significance of the contribution, technical correctness, and presentation. Papers (the length of each paper could be from 1 page to 8 pages without overlength charges, the further allowed overlength could be up to 2 pages, each overlength page charge US$100.00) are solicited. Prepare your paper in IEEE CS format. Paper formatting instructions and templates (“8.5 x 11” two-column format) can be found at:
Submit your paper as a PDF file at the iThings2013 submission system:
Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and attend the conference to present the work in order for the paper to be included in the IEEE Digital Library. Accepted papers will be published in proceedings of the iThings 2013 conference by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Extended versions of selected best papers will be considered for publication in special issues of several SCI-indexed international journals.
