In conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Ambient Systems,
Networks and Technologies (ANT-2014)

June 2-5, 2014,

Hasselt, Belgium


Abstract deadline:        January 5th, 2014

Full papers due    January 12th, 2014

Author notification:      March 15 th, 2014

Camera ready due:        April 4th , 2014

Published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science
series on-line.

Authors of selected best papers from this workshop will be invited to
submit an extended version to international journal special issues of
Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing.




Machine-to-machine communication is considered as the next technology
revolution. It involves a huge number of autonomous smart machines, sharing
information and collaborating together. M2M technology encompasses a large
spectrum of applications ranging from e-health and biomedical sensor
networks, to vehicular technology, smart grid and advanced metering
infrastructures. As the voice revenue is in constant decrease, Telecom
operators are energetically supporting this new technology as it is one of
the most promising revenue-generating service.

>From a standardization point of view, the M2M paradigm is still in its
infancy. Both ETSI and 3GPP standards do not provide a seamless and unified
M2M architecture, which is a sine qua none condition to the healthy and
sustained development of the M2M market. Furthermore, the spreading of M2M
technologies still hinge on fully providing secure and fault-tolerance to
M2M communications. Finally, in a single M2M network might coexist several
radio technologies (Zigebee, bluetooth, UWB, WiFi and Femtocell...), which
could dramatically impact M2M channels with fluctuation and noise.

This workshop aims to gather researchers, engineers and practitioners both
from academia and industry as well as end users who aim to present recent
advances on Machine-to-Machine communications.

Original contributions on Machine-to-Machine communications are solicited.
The workshop proposes to address, but is not limited to, the following
topics related to M2M communications, paradigms, frameworks and innovative

   - M2M Standardization progress
   - Spectrum management for M2M
   - Green M2M communication
   - M2M system architecture and components
   - Security, trust and privacy of M2M devices and services
   - Mobility management for M2M
   - M2M and information centric networking
   - Reliability management for M2M
   - Medium access technologies and protocols for M2M communication
   - M2M traffic models
   - M2M and Smart Grid
   - M2M and vehicular technology
   - M2M and smart homes
   - Cloud support for M2M applications
   - New M2M applications, services, and business models
   - M2M testbed and field trials




   -  Paper Length

Submitted manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages in length including all
figures, tables and references.

   -   Paper Format

The submitted paper must be formatted according to the guidelines of
Procedia Computer Science, MS Word Template, Latex, Elsevier.

   - Paper Submission

Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically using the
online workshop management system in PDF format before the deadline (see
Important Dates).

The submission processes will be managed by easychair.org. If you have used
this system before, you can use the same username and password. If this is
your first time using EasyChair, you will need to register for an account

registration, you will get a notification email from the system and you are
ready for submitting your paper. You can upload and re-upload the paper to
the system by the submission due date.

   - Publication

All ANT-2014 and associated workshops accepted papers will be printed in
the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access
Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is
hosted on www.Elsevier.com and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (
www.sciencedirect.com), and will be freely available worldwide. All papers
in Procedia will also be indexed by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding
Citation Index
http://thomsonreuters.com/conference-proceedings-citation-index/. The
papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI
numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and
direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. All accepted
papers will also be indexed in DBLP (http://dblp.uni-trier.de/).

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register and
attend the conference to present the work.
