Overview:

The computer industry is witnessing an inflection point – 'Internet of Things combined with Cloud Analytics' –which has implications from end (sensor devices) to end (cloud architectures). Many technologies come together contributing to this major inflection point: Computing platforms getting smaller (e.g. handheld devices, wearables), richer (e.g. image and language understanding) and broader (i.e. reaching the masses via Internet of Things). Sensors operating in constrained environments connected through intelligent gateways and cloud backend creates a very complex environment for the operators, system integrators, and developers of this new emerging technology. Discovering and managing sensor devices; collecting, cleaning and storing discoverable data; normalizing, aggregating and analyzing the data for insights and actions; managing the security and privacy of the data, enforcing the access privileges and trusted execution environments – all these are required to make this revolution happen.

The research challenges in IoT platforms are multi-fold: (a) providing rich functionality and wider power/performance range for sensor devices (b) attempting to cover a broad range of applications that can be migrated from cloud to gateways and sensor devices, (c) enabling a scalable and modular cloud architecture that provides the required real-time and uptime capabilities and (d) providing a rich software programming environment that eases the challenge of developing applications on end to end platforms consisting of elements ranging from sensors to gateways to cloud. The goal of this workshop is to bring together academic researchers and industry practitioners to discuss future IoT sensor-to- cloud architectures including sensors, gateways and cloud architectures.
