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 2014). So, this year’s edition will take place on October 8, 2014 at MIT, Cambridge, MA, USA.

So hurry up and send us your research papers, position papers and demo proposals before August 22 as described in the call for papers below:

CALL FOR PAPERS – Fifth International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT 2014)
in conjunction with IoT 2014, Cambridge, MA, USA, October 6-8, 2014.

* Workshop Abstract

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.

* Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: August 22, 2014
Notification of acceptance: September 12, 2014
Camera-ready papers due: September 26, 2014
Workshop date: October 8, 2014

* Contributing to WoT 2014

WoT 2014 solicits contributions in all areas related to the Web of
Things, and we invite application designers to think beyond sensor
networks and Web applications, and to imagine, design, build,
evaluate, and share their thoughts and visions on what the future of
the Web and networked devices will be. In particular, we seek
submissions related to the following fields:

– Integration of embedded computers, wireless sensor networks,
every-day appliances, smart gateways, and tagged objects (RFID,
barcodes, QRs, NFC) using a Web approach
– Real-time communication with physical objects (e.g.,WebSockets,
– Web-based discovery, search, composition, and physical mashups
– Use of semantic technologies to facilitate the interaction with and
between things on the Web
– Models, paradigms, and systems that enable the interaction with
physical things for humans
– Security, privacy, access control, and sharing of physical things on the Web
– Application of Web tools and techniques in the physical world (e.g.,
REST, HTML5, 6lowpan, cloud services, social networks)
– Cloud platforms and services for the Web of Things
– Concrete applications, use-cases, deployments, and evaluations of
Web-enabled Things in contexts such as smart homes, connected cities,
and Web 2.0 enterprises

This fifth edition of the Web of Things workshop series will provide
an interactive forum for WoT researchers to learn about and discuss
existing efforts related to Web-based interactions with smart things.
In order to ensure a high-quality technical session, submissions must
cover one of the topics above and should not exceed six ACM conference
format pages. Research papers must be original prior unpublished work
and not under review elsewhere as they will be published to the ACM
digital library and listed on DBLP. All submissions will be
peer-reviewed and selected based on their originality, merit, and
relevance to the workshop. Submission requires at least one author to
present the paper on site. If you can, we encourage authors of
accepted papers to bring a prototype and demonstrate it at the
workshop, as part of an open demonstration session.
