The 3rd IEEE WiMoB Workshop on Internet of Things Communications and Technologies 2015 (IOT-CT2015)
Abu Dhabi, UAE
in conjunction with
The 11th IEEE International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications
October 19 - 21, 2015

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel design paradigm, envisioned as a network of billions or trillions of machines communicating with one another and rapidly gaining global attention from academia, industry, and government. IoT is recognized as one of the most important areas of the future Internet; enabling ubiquitous computing among global networked machines and physical objects. Equipped with auto identification devices such a RFID tags in addition to sensors, actuators and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices, IoT has applications in a wide variety of areas such as smart grid, e-health, intelligent transportation, and logistics. 

Following on the successful steps of the IEEE WiMob IoT 2013, IEEE WCNC IoT 2014 and IEEE WiMob IoT-CT 2014 workshops, the proposed International Workshop on the Internet of Things Communications and Technologies aims to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia, practitioners from industry, standardization bodies, and government to meet and exchange ideas on recent research and future directions for the IoT. The technical discussion will be focused on the communications aspects and key enabling technologies for IoT, especially M2M communications and networking, RFID technology and Near Field Communications (NFC). The technical topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • IoT access network technologies and capillary networks; 
  • channel and traffic models; 
  • spectrum management for M2M/IoT radio communications; 
  • RFID, sensors, actuator technologies; 
  • IoT network infrastructure; 
  • IoT protocols;
  • IPv6 and wireless sensor networks; 
  • applications of the IoT;
  • IoT architectures and system, 
  • IoT networking and communication, 
  • Circuit and system design for smart objects in the IoT,
  • Security, trust, and privacy issues for devices and services; 
  • cloud computing interworking; 
  • naming, address management and end-to-end addressability; 
  • semantic technologies; 
  • smart grids and smart spaces
  • Methods for secure by design IoT
