            Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers
                       INTERNET OF THINGS 2008
         International Conference for Industry and Academia
               March 26-28, 2008, Zurich (Switzerland)
       Organized by ETH Zurich, University St.Gallen, and MIT
  The  term  "Internet  of Things" has come to describe a number of
  technologies and research disciplines that enable the Internet to
  reach  out  into the real world of physical objects. Technologies
  like RFID, short-range wireless communications, real-time locali-
  zation, and sensor networks are now becoming increasingly common,
  bringing  the  Internet of Things into commercial use. They fore-
  shadow  an  exciting  future that closely interlinks the physical
  world  and cyberspace -- a development that is highly relevant to
  researchers, corporations, and individuals.
  This conference will be the first that brings leading researchers
  and  practitioners  from  both  academia and industry together to
  facilitate  sharing  of applications, research results, and know-
  ledge.  The three-day event will feature keynotes from industrial
  and academic visionaries, technical presentations of cutting-edge
  research,  reports  on  the user-experience from seasoned practi-
  tioners,  panel discussions on hot topics, poster sessions summa-
  rizing  late-breaking  results,  and  hands-on  demos  of current
  Be sure to mark your calendars if you want to know more about:

   * Novel services and applications in an Internet of Things (IOT)
   * Emerging IOT business models and process changes
   * Communication systems and network architectures for the IOT
   * Technologies and concepts for embedding sensing, actuation,
     communication, and computation into networked things
   * Experience reports from the introduction and operation of net-
     worked things in areas such as healthcare, logistics & transport
   * Security & privacy aspects of IOT infrastructures & applications

         For more information and an advanced agenda, visit
  Scientific  contributions  are  expected  to  be published in the
  Springer  LNCS  series.  We  are  particularly interested in work
  addressing  real-world  implementation and deployment issues. For
  submission  instructions  and  further  information, see the full
