Seventh International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT 2016)

Seventh International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT 2016)

The Internet of Things has become a well-known brand for a set of research issues in the pervasive and ubiquitous computing communities. The WoT workshop series is where the concept of Web of Things was born and hence the prime location for researchers and practitioners to share their results and projects with the Web of Things community.

Continuing the successful Web of Things workshop series, this workshop aims at further exploring the use of technologies and principles at the core of the Web to provide methods for a seamless integration of physical devices. In particular, our goal is to foster discussion about systems that enable a real-time Web of Things and the discovery, search, and composition of services provided by Web-enabled things as well as the interaction of users with such devices.
