The new developments in this area raise many research questions including
interaction, security, collaboration, context, discovery, and privacy of
physical things in the virtual world. Despite the tremendous progress in
Internet technologies the research community continues to wrestle with some
of these questions. This workshop focuses on disseminating novel ideas and
research directions in this fast emerging area of the Internet of Things.
This workshop also aims to bring together academics and practitioners in an
effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the issues and
opportunities to explore new research directions and develop new ideas for
the Internet of Things. The workshop will be platform to provide
opportunities for researchers from academia and industry to join hands,
exchange ideas and focus on solutions that will enhance the life of the
growing population on the Internet. It will lead to identifying new
directions and setting the scope for developments in this area. The
participants will be enlightened with intellectual discussions,
highlighting the advances in technology that bridges the physical world and
the digital world.

This workshop aims at gathering researchers from the fields of wireless
networking and Internet applications to discuss new opportunities and
hurdles to leverage the possibilities of new applications and services for
the Internet of Ubiquitous and Pervasive Things.

The 2nd International Workshop on Internet of Ubiquitous and Pervasive
Things will take place in conjunction with the 3rd International Conference
