The “IoT Challenge” offers a platform to graduate students, PhD students, researchers and developers working in all areas of Internet of Things to share and showcase their recent highly innovative research and practical solutions to real-world problems.The solutions should be highly novel, exiting, and show a complete and working system, addressing a relevant application area for IoT, including, but not limited to: supply chain and logistics, healthcare, M2M, security, environmental monitoring,intelligent transport systems,smart homes, industrial manufacturing, and critical infrastructures.
The topics of interest include, but are definitely not limited to:
-smart Dust technologies: highly miniaturized integrated microelectronic or MEMS based solutions, addressing aspects as energy harvesting, wireless communication, and efficient processing.
-opportunistic networking and participatory sensing: solutions showing the potential impact of the use of smartphones, and the integration and sharing of different sensor systems for IoT
-wearable computing and smart textiles: showing integrated solutions for body area networking, their interaction with people and environment.
-real Time Localization Systems: should demonstrate efficient, scalable, and easy to deploy localization technologies.
-Internet integration: showing end-to-end internet based IoT solutions offering scalable and efficient services.
Contestants are free to choose their topic beyond the ones mentioned above as long as it is related to the Internet of Things concept, and it clearly shows a significant progress beyond the State of the Art. Both individual and group participations are welcome.
Showcasing excellent results in this occasion is not left unnoticed, as participants also compete for three different prices of 3000 euro (for the first place), 1500 euro (for the second place) and 500 euro (for the third place).
Contributions for the challenge are different from demo contributions in a sense that IoT Challenge seeks solutions that are highly innovative, significantly contribute to IoT technology, and present a "wow" factor. Each submission must make clear the novelty, how the solution works, how it advances the State of the Art, and the impact. They should strive to clearly state the significance of the contribution to the Internet of Things. Contributions that fail to address these aspects will be considered as demo and will consequently not be eligible for challenge and award prices.
Submissions should include an extended abstract of four to eight pages, and can optionally include a demo video, whose URL should be referred to in the submission.
Submissions should be done through EDAS, conference name: IoT 2012, Track name: IoT Challenge Competition.
Submission deadline: September 1 , 2012
Notification of acceptance: September 15, 2012
