Call details
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm enables the development of new services 
and mass market applications in multiple domains such as mobile marketing, 
social networks, smart cities, health care, and business processes. 

These applications consume high-level context data computed by processing and 
filtering numerous raw context data collected from the physical environment.

Those applications are based upon cooperating services, which have to be 
designed and dynamically composed. For instance, those services manage 
heterogeneous context data, distribute both processing and flows of data, manage
the quality of context for appropriate decision-making, enhance privacy of 
personal context data, and identify situations from data coming both from the 
IoT and from knowledge bases.  

Providing context-aware applications in the IoT necessitates the interaction of
numerous heterogeneous services deployed in a multiscale complex distributed 

Topics of interest

  -  Middleware to transport and transform data from tiny sensors to 
  context-aware applications
  -  Composition and interoperability of IoT services
  -  Distribution of IoT services among mobile devices, sensors and computers in
  the cloud
  -  Complex Event processing for the IoT
  -  Services on the cloud for the IoT
  -  Middleware for context-awareness and location-awareness
  -  Models and middleware to provide IoT services to context-aware applications
  -  Testbeds for context-aware applications in the IoT
  -  Semantic web services for the IoT
  -  Discovery and capability matching for the IoT
  -  Privacy and QoC (Quality of Context) aware capabilities for the IoT
