1st International Workshop on Interoperability,
Integration, and Interconnection of Internet of Things
Systems (I4T)
jointly held with
IOTDI — 1st IEEE International Conference on Internetof-Things Design and Implementation
April 4-6, 2016, Berlin, Germany
While still in his infancy, the IoT domain already lists a number of
solutions implemented, ranging from devices to platforms. However, the
heterogeneity at all levels of those solutions is preventing different systems
to interoperate effectively, despite significant efforts in the development of
a unique reference standard for IoT systems technology. The situation is
likely to worsen in the near future, as lack of interoperability causes major
technological and business-oriented issues such as impossibility to plug
non-interoperable IoT devices into heterogeneous IoT platforms,
impossibility to develop IoT applications exploiting multiple platforms in
homogeneous and/or cross domains, slowness of IoT technology
introduction at large-scale, discouragement in adopting IoT technology,
increase of costs, scarce reusability of technical solutions, and user
dissatisfaction. This Workshop aims at investigating such lack of
interoperability in the IoT realm by welcoming paper submissions
providing innovative research as well as technical contributions on
providing solutions to interoperability, integration, and interconnection of
heterogeneous IoT systems, at any level.
Areas of Interest
Definition of interoperable and open IoT architectures

Submission Guidelines
Original work must be submitted that is not published or under
submission elsewhere. Regular manuscripts may not exceed six
(6) pages formatted according to IEEE conference style:
mplates.html. Moreover, compared to the hosting conference
IoTDI 2016, this workshop welcomes position papers, work-inprogress reports, short papers on industrial deployment
experiences, case studies, and lessons learned, and submissions
that may provoke constructive discussion. They should be (4)
pages long and formatted as mentioned above. The submission
link is:
Review Process and Publication
All original submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.
Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical
strength, significance, presentation, quality, interest and relevance
to workshop scope. After review, regular submissions may be
offered to be published as short papers (four pages). Accepted
papers will be part of the IoTDI 2016 proceedings by the IEEE
Computer Society Conference Publishing.
Journal Special Issue
Selected papers presented at the conference will be invited to a
special issue organized in a premier International Journal (with
SCI Index) that is under selection and/or in the Springer Series on
Internet of Things.
Important Dates
December 20, 2015: Extended Submission (Hard) Deadline.
January 15, 2016: Acceptance/Rejection Notification.
January 31, 2016: Final camera-ready papers.
April 4, 2016:
Workshop Takes Place.
