IEEE CIfIoT 2013

2013 IEEE International Workshop on Computational Intelligence for the Internet of Things

Internet is evolving toward an environment in which objects (sensors and various computing devices) interact in a seamless way. This is known nowadays as the Internet of Things (IoT). In this type of environment, sensors, wireless sensor networks, mobile devices, smart phones, personal computers, servers, RFID devices, home appliances, cars, health monitoring equipment, and many other daily objects communicate, exchange information, produce and combine knowledge, and provide the infrastructural support to create advanced services, dynamically adaptable to the changing user needs.

The IoT is a unifying framework in which sensing, computing, web technologies and services, and human-computer interface converge and integrate each other, enabling easy collaboration among the components and interaction with the humans. The IoT requires therefore adaptive, evolving computational paradigms to manage the sensor data, aggregate the information and extract the relevant knowledge which need to be communicated in the network.

This workshop is directed to present and discuss theoretical foundations, technology, design methodology, and applications of computational intelligence for the IoT.

Papers are solicited on all aspects related to computational intelligence for IoT, encompassing new computational paradigms, design methodologies, system design, application cases, and experimental studies.



Topics include, but are not limited to, computational intelligence for:
- sensor management and sensor networks in IoT
- energy management in IoT
- RFID management and applications in IoT
- data fusion and knowledge extraction in IoT
- communication and network management in IoT
- dependability and resilience in IoT
- security in IoT
- privacy in IoT
- biometrics in IoT
- activity scheduling in IoT
- human interfaces in IoT
- services in IoT
- web services for IoT

- context-aware environments in IoT
- applications in IoT

- performance and quality measurements in IoT

- monitoring and management of IoT systems

- design and optimization of the IoT
- interoperability in the IoT

Papers will be considered for the workshop only if they address the various aspects of IoT by using computational intelligence techniques.
