Paper Submission

Workshop Goals: The IoT is defining an ecosystem, where it is not only a network to transfer data, else IoT also is interconnected with Big Data and Cloud Computing to provide intelligence, in order to be able to understand the behaviors, and even define control/actions, through Cyber Physical Systems, according to the information captured by the smart objects that are able around the emerging smarter cities.

The ecosystem figure presents the general architecture of the IoT ecosystem, where the data coming from the Internet of Things and Smarter Cities is integrated into the Cloud Computing.

The presented flow is enabling the interaction between the cloud and the humans, who are starting to be more actives and more participative with the processes that are happening in their cities, workspaces and living areas.

The cloud is taking care of the centralization of the data of each sensor and object, allowing them to interact and communicate between them through the creation of a ubiquitous network and solving the interconnection problem.

The cloud is also enabling the integration of Big Data analysis in order to reach understandings of behaviors, determination of patterns, and extraction of knowledge from the data.

Finally, as a result and the cross integration of all the technologies, a new level of control and feedback mechanisms are being developed in order to enhance the processes. This workshop looks for multidisciplinary works that mixes the IoT with social aspects, IoT with Big Data, IoT with the cloud computing, and IoT as an enabler for Cyber Physical Systems. Finally, applications of the IoT and solutions that integrate multiple off the enablers presented in the CrossIoT loop are also highly encouraged to participate in this event.

Paper Submission

We invite researchers to submit high quality contributions describing significant, original and unpublished results in the following categories:

Long papers: Intended to allow presentation of academic research results of high quality. Submissions must contain an original contribution and may not have already been published in another forum, nor be subject to review for other conferences or publications. Contributions should include unpublished results of research, case studies or experiences that provide new evidence about the research or application regarding to the main topics. Articles accepted in this category will be published in the proceedings of the event. Long papers must not exceed 8 pages (including figures and appendices).

Short papers:Intended to allow presentation of ongoing studies with partial (however, significant) results. Submissions must contain an original contribution and may not have already been published in another forum, nor be subject to review for other conferences or publications. Articles accepted in this category will be published in the proceedings of the event. Short papers must not exceed 4 pages (including figures and appendices).

All papers should be written in English.

Submission Procedure

All submissions should be made by EasyChair platform and must follow the LNCS Formatting Guidelines. Details of the paper submission process will be announced soon through the website of the conference:
