The Internet of Things (IoT) provides a promising vision of the future world where the virtual world of information integrates seamlessly with the real world of things. Achieving the advantages of IoT requires the management, integration and utilization of massive and heterogeneous data by means of knowledge-based decision systems, as well as the integration of technologies like RFID, sensor networks, NFC, Bluetooth, Zigbee, WiFi and WiMAX etc. Knowledge and information play key roles in the automation and intelligence of IoT. The knowledge bases in IoT acquire knowledge from domain experts, as well as knowledge mining tools which can discover rules and models from massive information generated by people and things in the future context of IoT.

This workshop aims at exploring the identification, information and knowledge in IoT. In particular, it intends to investigate identification technology, data management and processing, information extracting and spreading, knowledge management and knowledge sharing, and to study how collaboration and interaction in IoT can be facilitated leveraging the best practices developed in related areas like social computing, social and community intelligence, ubiquitous computing, wireless sensor networks and service oriented computing.

Weishan Zhang: Department of Software Engineering, China University of Petroleum, China

Klaus Marius Hansen: Department of Computer Science (DIKU), University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Paolo Bellavista: DEIS, Universit di Bologna, Italy


Large Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of Services (IoS), Internet of People (IoP) applications are gaining increasing attention recently, where a large number of pervasive devices are deployed. This raises a number of challenges for enabling pervasive services on resource-limited devices in IoT/IoS/IoP applications. The challenges include how to make services running in a scalable way, how to extend the capabilities of pervasive devices by utilizing backend supporting infrastructure like cloud storage and cloud computation facilities, and how to develop various pervasive service in an efficient manner, how to make pervasive services behave more intelligently, and so on. The resolution of these issues needs cross-discipline research from Internet of Things and services, autonomic computing, service-oriented computing, cloud computing, software engineering, pervasive and mobile computing, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, and other related fields. The EPS workshop will build a bridge between these related areas.

SW3:M2M-CTS'12: International Workshop on M2M Communication Technologies and Systems




Andreas Mueller, Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany



Machine-to-machine communication (M2M) will have a fundamental impact on many different industries and businesses and represents a key enabling technology for the emerging Internet of Things and Services (IoTS). By enabling all kinds of smart objects, such as intelligent sensors and actuators, to communicate and interact with each other across different networks and domains, a plethora of new services and applications may be created, thus bearing the potential to create substantial new markets and revolutionize existing ones. In order to fully exploit this potential, a close collaboration is required between academia, the traditional telecom industry as well as other industries that were not so present in this arena in the past, but which will be among the main beneficiaries of M2M and the IoTS in future since they are providing the “Things” for the Internet of Things.

The goal of this workshop is to bring all these players together and to foster a better common understanding, provide valuable networking opportunities and exchange latest research results. The workshop will cover both, technological aspects of machine-to-machine communications as well as possible applications and implementations. It comprises a keynote speech by Dr. Jian Ma – who is one of the leading figures and a distinguished expert in the IoT and communications communities in China and beyond – as well as a world-class panel discussion on "Real-World Challenges and Opportunities for M2M Communication" organized by Dr. Murat Senel, with representatives from Broadcom, Texas Instruments, Energy Micro as well as Bosch. Aside from that, of course, there will be numerous cutting-edge research presentations, with speakers from both academia and industry.
