NOMe-IoT 2011
International Workshop on Networking and Object Memories for the Internet of

September 18, 2011. Beijing, China
In conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Ubiquitous
Computing (UbiComp 2011)
Submission Deadline : June 3, 2011
Following the prognosis that predicts 50 to 100 billion of Internet
connected things by 2020, we are now at the cross section of a paradigm
shift and observing the metamorphosis that everyday things are going through
- from things that learned-to-do to things that are learning–to-think to
things that will learn-to-perceive (sense and response).
The Internet of Things (IoT) technology is at the heart of this
metamorphosis, and is rapidly gaining global attention from academia,
industries, and governments. Manifold definitions ofIoT trace back to the
ITU vision, and also available from European Commission. In general,
the IoT concept
allows bidirectional communications among device, network, and backend data
centers. It covers a wide scope of technologies including wireless/wired
sensing, networking, computing and control, which together build feasible
complex cyber physical systems (CPS) to support diverse applications,
including smart grid, healthcare, intelligent transportation, and logistics,
etc. An integral part of IoT systems is object memories, comprise hardware
and software components that physically and/or conceptually associate
digital information with real-world objects in an application-independent
manner. Such information can take many different forms (structured data and
documents, pictures, audio/video streams, etc.) and originate from a variety
of sources (automated processes, sensors in the environment, users, etc.).
If constantly updated, Digital Object Memories over time provide a
meaningful record of an object's history and use.

NOMe-IoT seeks to provide a foundation for discussing these challenges and
to layout the future roadmap for IoT research. NOMe-IoT is the successor of
two successful workshop series, DIPSO/DOMe-IoT 2007-10 in conjunction with
UbiComp 2007-10. By bringing in several system and networking experts from
academia and industry, this year's event extends the workshop's scope and
aims to provide a forum to discuss and exchange ideas on recent research
work, point out the directions for future research, and seek collaboration
opportunities on all aspects of the IoTSystems.

*** Goals and Topics

The primary goal of the workshop is to bring together technical experts,
artists, designers, and possible end-users of IoT systems to discuss and
to leverage cooperation in future activities.  We are looking for papers
that present new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new
research directions, or discuss strategies for resolving open
problems spanning all aspects of an IoTsystem. The focus will cover both
the system-level solutions like software/hardware architectures as well as
 social, privacy, and legal implications of IoT  systems. Furthermore,
application-oriented demos and prototypes are also highly encouraged. The
workshop will be organized around short technical talks and structured

Suggested topics that could be discussed at NOMe-IoT include (but are not
limited to):

.       IoT System and Functional Architecture
.       Access Network Technologies for IoT
.       Technology for enabling Digital Object Memories (e.g., Architecture,
Represenation and Modelling)
.       Protocol Designs for IoT (e.g., MAC, Routing, TCP,
Admission control, etc.)
.       Security and Privacy issues for IoT
.       Performance Management and Evaluations for IoT systems (QoS,
Scalability, Reliability, etc)
.       IoT Network Operations, Management, and Optimizations
.       IoT Naming, Address Management and End-to-End Addressability
.       Real-time and Historical Data Management for IoT
.       RFID, Sensors, Actuator technologies for IoT
.       Green IoT
.       Web Technologies and Cloud Computing for IoT
.       Novel Interfaces and Interactions Techniques for IoT
.       Social Implications and Studies reporting IoT Systems
.       IoT Applications (e.g., Healthcare, Logistics, Smart
Grid, Transportation Systems, etc.)
.       IoT Standardization Activities

*** Format and Submission Guidelines

We accept two types of submissions to NOMe-IoT 2011 : Research contributions
which must not exceed 6 pages in ACM SIGCHI Archival format and are expected
to present novel concepts and new insights;  Position statement may be up to
2 pages in ACM SIGCHI Archival format and should outline individual interest
and experience on IoT.  All accepted submissions will be included in the ACM
Digital Library and the adjunct proceedings of the Ubicomp 2011
conference. We additionally plan to publish high-quality technical papers
and descriptions of design studies in a special journal issue after the
workshop. Contributions must be submitted through EasyChair (, no later than June
3, 2011, and should be in PDF format. Detailed format and submission
instructions including style templates for MS Word and LaTex are provided at
the workshopís website (
