Architecting the Web of Things @ WoT 2010

Dear all,

As hinted a little while ago (see this post!) we are proud to officially announce the first International Workshop on the Web of Things.
Following on the success of our workshop at Lift 2009 we decided a little while ago to organize a similar event but targeted a little more towards the scientific community.

The idea of this workshop is to attract researchers and practitioners from both the web/web engineering field and the ubicomp/pervasive computing field. The motto of this first edition is “Architecting the Web of Things”, thus we are expecting contributions (papers) defining the basis of the future Web of Things. More concretely we listed a number of topics which we found relevant and interesting such as:

  • Web-based interaction patterns for embedded devices (streaming, eventing, etc.)
  • Applications, deployments, prototypes and evaluations of Web of things systems
  • Human-things interaction models and paradigms (mobile interfaces, etc.)
  • User-oriented, context-aware discovery and dynamic search for the real world
  • Composition (e.g. Web mashups) and macro-programming for the real world
  • Semantic technologies for description and representation of devices and services
  • Optimizations method and platforms for embedded Web servers and applications
  • Security, access control, and physical sharing of physical things on the Web

More information on these topics as well as the call for paper can be found here.

The workshop (which official name is: First International Workshop on the Web of Things, WoT 2010) is going to take place in conjunction with the PerCom 2010 IEEE conference in Mannheim, Germany. The PerCom conference lasts from March 29 to April 2 and it is likely (but yet to be confirmed!!) that the workshop will take place on March 29 or April 2.

We are already looking forward to your submissions and to continue building the WoT community!
