The Internet of Things envisages over 5 billion connected smart devices for next generation wireless networks that will cause an exponential growth of data traffic over the next decade. These smart devices penetrate into our daily life and how the technologies for these devices evolve will also affect how people live in the future. To enable smart devices to meet the new 5G requirements, mobile stakeholders are already preparing the technology roadmap for next generation networks. 5G envisages design targets for smart devices such as high energy efficiency and throughput and low latency. The objective of this workshop is to attract researchers and technologists to discuss these topics in terms of concepts, state of the art, standards, deployments, running experiments and applications.

Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal, including, but are not limited to, the following areas:

- New communication paradigms for smart devices
- Mobile cloud
- Algorithms and protocols for smart devices
- Mobile services and applications (m-health, m-learning, m-government, etc.)
- Smart Device to Smart Device Communication
- Big data transfer using smart devices
- Virtualization using smart devices
- Cooperative and Cognitive communication using smart devices
- Simulation modeling and optimization for smart devices
- E-health for 5G
- Security and cryptography for smart devices
- Economic aspects
