CALL FOR PAPERS - First International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT
in conjunction with the 8th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive
Computing and Communications (PerCom 2010), Mannheim, Germany 

Paper submission deadline: October 18, 2009
Notification of acceptance: December 21, 2009
Camera-ready papers due: January 29, 2010
Workshop date (tentative): March 29, 2010

The world of embedded devices has experienced radical changes over the past
few years as real-world objects can now easily connect to the Internet. This
convergence of physical computing devices (wireless sensor networks, mobile
phones, embedded computers, etc.) and the Internet provides new design
opportunities and challenges. The Internet of Things has mainly focused on
establishing connectivity in a variety of challenging and constrained
networking environments, and the next logical step in the evolution in
pervasive computing builds on top of network connectivity by focusing on the
application layer: how to develop ubiquitous computing applications on top
of heterogeneous devices? The Web of Things is the vision that brings
embedded devices into the Web by using Web standards as application protocol
to interact with things. This workshop aims at bringing together the
pervasive computing and Web communities to explore the possibilities for
using the core principles and technologies of modern Web architecture (e.g.,
HTTP, REST, Atom, JSON) for seamless integration of things into the Web and
developing applications on top of web-enabled devices (physical mashups).
Research contributions are solicited in the following areas:

- Web-based interaction patters for embedded devices (streaming, eventing,
- Applications, deployments, and evaluation of Web of things systems
- Human-things interaction models and paradigms (mobile interfaces, etc.)
- User-oriented, context-aware discovery and dynamic search for the real
- Web composition and macro-programming models (e.g. mashups)
- Semantic technologies for description of devices and services
- Optimization methods for embedded Web servers and applications
- Security, access control, and physical sharing of physical things on the

Since this workshop is the first in this area, the goal is to develop a
community in this area and provide an interactive forum for researchers to
learn and discuss about existing efforts to enable cross-fertilization.
Hence, we expect all attendees to read all workshop papers in advance and to
prepare questions for each. Presentations shall specifically highlight and
address similarities and differences with other accepted papers. This will
help to provide a forum to foster future collaboration, beyond the mere
presentation of research results. In order to ensure a high-quality
technical session, submissions must cover one of the topics above and should
not exceed six (6) IEEE conference format pages. Research papers must be
original prior unpublished work and not under review elsewhere as they will
be published on the IEEE Digital Library. All submissions will be
peer-reviewed and selected based on their originality, merit, and relevance
to the workshop. Submission requires at least one author to fully register
for PerCom 2010 and to present the paper on-site.
