                         CALL FOR PAPERS

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm which is shaping the 
evolution of the future Internet. According to the vision underlying the 
IoT, the next step in increasing the ubiquity of the Internet, after 
connecting people anytime and everywhere, is to connect inanimate 
objects. By providing objects with embedded communication capabilities 
and a common addressing scheme, a highly distributed and ubiquitous 
network of seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices is formed, which 
can be fully integrated into the current Internet and mobile networks. 
Thus, it allows for the development of new intelligent services 
available anytime, anywhere, by anyone and anything.

When human interaction is absent from the system dynamics, the vision 
is also referred to as Machine­-to-­Machine (M2M) communications. Many 
applications with high social and business impact fall under the IoT/M2M 
umbrella, including personal healthcare, smart grids, surveillance, 
home automation, intelligent transportation, and it is strongly expected 
that new applications will emerge once the enabling technologies reach 
a stable state. 

At the moment, two of the most important challenges for the widespread 
use of IoT/M2M technologies are:
1. Architectures, protocols and algorithms for an efficient 
interconnection of smart objects, both between themselves and with the 
(future) Internet.
2. The creation of value-­added services, especially open and 
interoperable, enabled by the interconnection of things / machines / 
smart objects, in such a way that they can be integrated with current 
and new business and development processes.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and 
researchers from both academia and industry in order to have a forum for 
discussion and technical presentations on the recent advances in theory, 
application, and implementation of the IoT/M2M concepts: Technologies, 
protocols, algorithms, and services.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- System architectures for IoT/M2M systems
- Protocols and mechanisms for seamless IoT/M2M communications
- Enabling standards and technologies for the IoT/M2M
- Service platforms for IoT/M2M applications
- Business models and processes for IoT/M2M applications
- Energy optimization and sustainable operation of IoT/M2M devices
- Access network issues; including mobility management, data 
dissemination and routing
- Modeling and simulation of large­-scale IoT/M2M scenarios
- Experiences with experimental IoT/M2M system prototypes, pilots, and 
- Security and privacy in the IoT/M2M context
- Industrial use cases showing gaps to be filled by future research
- Novel and emerging IoT/M2M applications; including eHealth/mHealth, 
Smart Grids, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Smart Homes and Cities


All submissions must describe original research, not published or 
currently under review for another workshop, conference, or journal. 
Full papers should be restricted to 6 camera-ready pages (10pt font, 
double column, US letter size [8.5 x 11 inches] in IEEE format). 
Submission of a paper implies the willingness of at least one author to 
attend the workshop and present the paper. Accepted papers will be 
included in the main proceedings of IEEE WoWMoM 2014 and published by 

Papers must be submitted via edas at https://edas.info/N16827
