Call details
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm enables the development of new 
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 
   -  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
