Supporting ThingMonk 2016 & IoT Diversity Program

In the early days of the IoT there were a handful of conferences you had to attend every year. Most of these early birds are still in play such as Ubicomp & Pervasive, ACM IoT, RFID Journal Live, O’Reilly Solid or smaller ones such as the very fine Sketching in Hardware or our very own WoT Workshop (edition 2016 taking place real soon!). Things have changed however, with the IoT developing at light speed, conferences and events started to mushroom. There isn’t a city that isn’t organizing it’s dozen of IoT events every month. This is all a bit overwhelming...

WoT 2014: Where WoT People Meet…

“How do you distinguish a WoT thing from a mere IoT thing? Try talking client-side JavaScript to it, if it just stares at you like you used some kind of an unknown language then this isn’t a WoT thing…” If you did smile while reading this then you surely are a good candidate for joining the annual WoT community meeting aka, the Fifth International Workshop on the Web of Things! The Workshop is turning 5 years old so it was only right to go back to the roots and collocate with the International Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT...

I saw the future of M2M in Budapest: smart vending machines!

A few days ago, we presented our newly launched developer portal for the EVRYTHNG Engine at the M2M Partner Event in Budapest organized by Deutsche Telekom. The event took place in the Hungarian Railway Museum, and I gave a talk in a lovely 19th century wagon, which was (retro-)fitted with a plasma screen (I’d have preferred air-conditioning considering 20 brains steaming in such a tiny “room”).

Ambient Things on the Internet – ATI 2011

A few days ago, this call for paper was brought to my attention (thanks to Marino Linaje). It has two interesting aspects: 1) It is quite close to the CFP of WoT, the International Workshop on the Web of Things. 2) It was initiated by people from the service/Web communities which shows the increasing interest in the topic on the Web-side of Things (WoT was slightly more on the Things-side of Things, i.e., ubiquitous/pervasive computing).

WoT 2011: Program

In a little more than a week (12.06.2011) we will kick-start the second international workshop on the Web of Things (WoT 2011). 2011 is the year of many WoT realizations and this is reflected in the, we believe, rather thrilling program of WoT 2011. Here is a brief preview of WoT is to expect 😉

Touch the Web 2011

While heavily working on preparing a nice WoT 2011 workshop we wanted to share with you the call for paper of a “competing” workshop: Touch the Web. I had the chance to attend it last year and I must say I was impressed by the quality of discussions. It was a rather small but very focused crowd, slightly more on the Web-side than on the things-side with a hint of model driven architectures (probably influenced by the mother conference it is attached to: ICWE), which makes it actually nicely complementary to WoT.

Hackathon on social devices @ WoT2011

Because we don’t like just talking but also doing, we’ve decided to set up an exciting warm-up for our upcoming WoT2011 workshop. I named: a hackathon on social device that will take place on the 11 June 2011 somewhere in San Francisco. In 3 words (okay more than 3):
