IoT-App 2015

Call for Papers

The notion of "Internet of Things" has emerged as a last-mile solution for connecting various cyber technologies to our everyday life. It envisions a world in which the sensor devices could exist in any form factor, anywhere, in which all the sensory data will be made available to the Internet, and be readily accessible to a wide range of applications. The sensor devices are usually attached to physical objects, providing a real-time, interactive view of the physical world. Although much progress has been made at the system and sensing level, applications for these platforms are considerably lagging behind. Without compelling applications, the vision of the Internet of Things will not be realized.

The 2015 International Workshop on Internet of Things towards Applications (IoT-App'15) aims to provide a forum for researchers to present thoughts and results on IoT applications. We are looking for application descriptions, development, experiences and evaluation in a wide range of domains including, but not limited to homes, offices, medical care, vehicles, transportation, supply chains and education. Particularly, we are interested in identifying new applications that are made possible by the Internet of Things, as well as new challenges these applications will pose to the design of an Internet of Things.

Topics of Interest

  • Novel IoT applications and services
  • Application-driven IoT middleware
  • Mobility and network connectivity in IoT applications
  • Cloud and/or cloudlet support for IoT applications
  • Machine learning, data mining and big data analytics
  • Energy efficiency
  • Security and privacy
  • Experiences in developing and deploying operational IoT applications and services

We invite technical papers describing original ideas, ground-breaking results, and/or real-world experiences involving innovative IoT applications. Successful submissions will elaborate one or multiple desirable properties as follows: 1) Provide a quantitative analysis of outstanding systems challenges highlighted by the application; 2) Have a quantitative estimate of cost savings relative to the status quo; 3) Make a compelling case that the application will be disruptive. Submissions will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. In addition to citing relevant, published work, authors must cite and relate their submissions to relevant prior publications of the their own.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages in PDF format, including figures, tables, and references, two-column format, using 10-point font and 1 inch margin. Please consider using the sig-alternate-10pt.cls. Papers should not be anonymous. Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be reviewed. Submitted papers must not be currently under review for any other publication. Before submitting your paper, please check the description of the conference scope. Accepted submissions will be available on the ACM digital library at least one week before the conference. If you have any questions, you can send e-mail to the PC chair at
