Workshop on Internet of Things Standards

Call for Papers


According to popular estimates, the commercial value of Internet of Things is in Trillions of USDs. But the ecosystem suffers from fragmentation and product silos in consumer market. Several Standard Development Organizations (e.g., IEEE P2413, oneM2M) and industry driven alliances (e.g., AllJoyn, OIC) are working towards defining global standards enabling seamless interoperability across IoT ecosystems. Similarly, W3C aims to utilize the well-established web standards paving way for Web of Things (WoT). These first generations of standards provide a baseline architecture and functionalities enabling wide range of deployments. Low power protocols (defined in IETF) & communication technologies, lightweight & open source computing platforms, RESTful APIs and semantic based data fusion have been addressed in many such SDOs and alliances. Still, deeper analysis of the IoT standardization landscape reveals the gaps yet to be standardized. These include resource discovery, semantic engine integration, cross-domain data fusion and consumer usability. As the new consumer scenarios surface (related to connected vehicles, edge computing, localized analysis), the academia, industry and Government are looking for next-generation of standards. The proposed workshop will create a platform for cutting edge research results and ongoing activities that can be transformed into next-generation standards at IEEE, oneM2M, 3GPP, ITU and IETF.

The workshop solicits research and industry papers on the following –

  • State-of-the-art analysis of current M2M, IoT and WoT standards landscape
  • Gap analysis, optimization and consolidation of current standards
  • Identification of next generation standards, their applicable scenarios and requirements
  • Security, privacy and trust in IoT standards
  • Resource discovery, consumer usability, semantic engine integration in WoT standards
  • Cross domain data fusion and convergence
  • Recent trends on WoT, NFV/SDN and edge computing standards
  • Novel standards in network access technologies for IoT and their usability
  • Scalability, deployment and test-beds of IoT standards
  • Experiences and large scaled field trials in application development (e.g., Smart cities and Smart factories) using IoT/WoT standards
  • Intelligent data and event processing with large amount of IoT/M2M data

The authors of the accepted papers of this special session will be invited to submit an extended version of their works in an MEC special issue of IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine in 2017.
