Internet of Things (IoT) has been emerging as the next big thing in Internet. It is envisioned that trillions of physical things or objects will be outfitted with different kinds of sensors and actuators and connected to the Internet via heterogeneous access networks enabled by technologies, such as embedded sensing and actuating, radio frequency identification (RFID), wireless sensor networks, real-time and semantic web services, etc. IoT is actually cyber-physical systems or a network of networks. With the extreme number of things/objects and sensors/actuators connected to the Internet, a massive and, in some cases, real-time data flow will be automatically produced by connected things and sensors. It is important to collect correct raw data in an efficient way; but more important is to analyze and mine the raw data to abstract more valuable information, such as correlations among things and services to provide web of things or Internet of services. This Symposia features recent and emerging advances IoT architecture, protocols, data analytics, services and applications.
It mainly focuses on topics including, but not limited to, sensors and devices for IoT, efficient communications and networking for IoT, security and privacy in IoT, crowd sensing and crowd sourcing, localization and tracking, services and applications, IoT data modeling and management, etc.
