Call for Papers
First cross-domain IFIP Internet of Things (IoT) Conference
18-20 September 2018
IoT is hot. Experts and organizations are addressing the topic in policy statements, papers and conferences. There are many aspects to be looked at when talking about IoT. Earlier developments were quite focused on the lower level aspects such as interfacing, communication protocols and standards, base platforms, energy efficiency and energy harvesting, smart devices and smart sensors, etc. With the exponential growth of the number of devices and sensors connected to Internet and their increasing levels of embedded intelligence, other relevant challenges emerge, including organizational structures, collaborative cyber-physical ecosystems, end-user development, self-organizing systems, distributed decision making, collective adaptive and cognitive systems, behavioural models, systems resilience, handling big data, etc. The IFIP Internet of Things (IoT) Conference as part of the IFIP WCC 2018 addresses this wide variety of aspects. Papers will show technical advancements, research on major questions, policy issues, and so on. 
Perspectives will be from the people and organizations involved (users, ICT professionals, user organizations, ICT industry, authorities / regulators) but also from the phase of an IoT system or component (development, production / manufacturing, implementation, maintenance, management, use). 
We invite you to submit papers to this conference. 
Main topics of interest (non-exhaustive list)
·      Technical issues and challenges
·      Legal issues (incl liability)
·      Ethical issues

All papers must be written in English. Submissions should be at most 16 pages long in total including references and appendices. Submissions should not be anonymized. Program Committee members are not required to read the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.
