Call for Paper:
Internet of Things (IoT) is a paradigm that enables various machines, 
physical devices,
and objects, denoted as things, to interact ubiquitously and autonomously 
such that our
surroundings can be monitored and controlled towards the betterment of 
human life.
A surrounding can be a home, office, shop, factory floor, even roads. 
Thus, the betterment
of human life can have different facades in different situations. The 
concept has now
further been extended to Industry 4.0 and Tactile Internet, which are 
acting as catalysts
to the evolution of a new generation of services expected to have an 
immense impact on
the social and technological eco-system. It can be envisaged that these 
systems and services will encompass several domains such as e-Governance, 
Retail, Health Care, Transportation, Waste Management, Food Supply Chains, 
Energy & Utilities,
Insurance, etc. New technologies and applications built on top of them 
must be developed
in order to fulfill this vision of Intelligent Infrastructure and Industry 
4.0. The evolving
Internet concept poses a number of new challenges and opportunities for 
computing, networking,
data management and analytics due to the large scale and complexity of 
such systems, and
heterogeneity of the things and networks, constrained by limited resources 
of the things
and the network and the requirement of extreme low latency in both 
computation and communication.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to the following issues 
related to IoT:

- System and network architectures, e.g., service oriented architecture 
- Middleware for heterogeneous sensors, devices and protocols
- Quality of service (QoS) provisioning
- Sensing and sensor signal processing
- Localization and tracking
- RFID and RFID based track and trace 
- Wireless networking protocols, e.g., RFID collision avoidance, MAC, 
routing, etc.
- Energy harvesting and energy management
- Data management and analytics: data-stream, sharing, mining, semantic 
interoperability, etc.
- Deep learning over sensor data to create intelligent systems
- Storage, management and analysis of data in Intelligent Infrastructures
- Business Intelligence from sensor data
- Back-end (cloud and fog/edge based) infrastructure
- Security issues: Data confidentiality, integrity, network resilience, 
- Participatory sensing, human behaviour modelling and Mobile Cloud 
Computing for IoT/Industry 4.0
- Novel application developments and case studies, e.g., smart grid, green 
  healthcare, intelligent transportation/city, analytics driven decision 
support systems,
  smart warehouse/retail infrastructures etc.
- Evolving technologies for Industry 4.0, tactile internet including new 
computation paradigms
  and communication technologies
- Test-beds and field trials

Submission Instructions

Papers should be at most 6 pages, including title, abstract, figures and 
references, and not published
or under review elsewhere. Papers should be prepared as per ACM conference 
proceedings format.
Please submit your papers through EasyChair. 

All accepted workshop full papers will be included in the ACM Digital 

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the 
conference and present the paper.
In addition, no-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in 
those papers NOT being
included in the proceedings.
