Recent studies and reports have evinced that the Internet of Things
will have a huge impact on our society. Conservative estimates predict
there will be 50 billion of connected devices by 2020. Besides
connecting real-time such numbers of objects, managing them and the
data they generate will also pose challenges whether each of these
produce no more than few bytes per minute in a very remote location or
heavy data-streams within the heart of "resource rich" smart cities.
Simply looking at the sheer size of these numbers, it is clear that
competing for end-user attention will be the main hurdle to overcome.

To put it in Mark Weiser's words, these objects will have to "weave
themselves into the fabric of our everyday life" leveraging on the
features of a more Cognitive IoT where connected "things" become more
intelligent and more autonomous. All this abundance of information
sources generated by the ubiquitous computing phenomena opens new
perspectives for many Artificial Intelligence branches, such as
decision making strategies, reasoning, learning, etc.

Cognitive IoT aims at gathering enthusiastic researchers and
practitioners from AI and IoT-related areas sharing the common goal of
addressing the new challenges posed by the Cognitive aspect of IoT, by
using new or leveraging existing Artificial Intelligence techniques.

The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a
leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of
innovation in the field of ICT and will be co-located with the IOT360

All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available
through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest
scientific libraries. Best papers will be invited to publish also in
the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Cognitive Communications.

This conference will be held within the scope of IoT360, a flagship
event around Internet of Things.

The list of covered topics is, without being limited to, as follows:
	- Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) for cognitive IoT applications
    - Nanotechnology and biotechnology for the IoT (e.g., Bio/nano sensors)
    - Multi-Agent Systems (MAS)
    - Knowledge representation in IoT
    - Decision making strategies in IoT, data fusion
    - Learning under IoT constraints
    - Pattern recognition in IoT
    - Biometrics for the IoT
    - Individual and social behavior analysis through IoT sensing mechanisms
    - Context aware data management
    - Environmental monitoring, network surveillance
    - Transfer learning, information-theoretic learning
    - Bio-inspired intelligence, neural networks for IoT
    - Deep learning for IoT

The COIOTE 2015 Conference caters for a limited number of workshops on
dedicated session topics. The aim of these workshops is to discuss
work in progress and explore opportunities for new research related to
a topic of interest within the context of the conference. Details on
submitting workshop proposals can be found here

    - Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length. Complete
formatting and submission instructions can be found on the conference
web site.
    - Submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least three
expert reviewers.
    - Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and
relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be
under consideration for another conference or journal.
    - Submission of the paper implies agreement of the author(s) to
attend the conference and present the paper if accepted.
    - For additional information see the registration information
page, here (http://coiot.org/2015/show/initial-submission).

The proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing
services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI
Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU
Digital Library (EUDL).

Best papers will be invited to publish also in the EAI Endorsed
Transactions on Cognitive Communications.
