3rd Workshop on Interoperability and Open-Source Solutions for the Internet of Things (Part I)

9:00 AM, Wednesday 6 Jun 2018 (1 hour 45 minutes)
Coffee Break   10:45 AM to 11:15 AM (30 minutes)

Internet of Things Interoperability resides on the principle of connecting a large number of devices to a global infrastructure to offer added value features and global services across IoT platforms. In the past years we have witnessed the consolidation of communication protocols connecting various devices and the advent of open source frameworks for IoT interoperability. Standardization initiatives, industry alliances, and collaborative research projects have developed solutions to address the challenge of IoT interoperability. Sensor, actuator, and “thing” description formats as well as communication protocols and APIs have been designed to build advanced cross-domain IoT solutions and entire ecosystems based on interoperable IoT platform technologies. The challenges ahead are to advance interoperable IoT technologies for handling complex tasks and global interconnected systems in trendy verticals with high impact on the society, e.g. smart cities and ports, healthcare, automated manufacturing lines, connected robots, or autonomous vehicles. Open source interoperability solutions and open standards remain a viable option to automate the collaboration between otherwise closed IoT platforms with key challenges related to semantics, uniform APIs, security, privacy and trust issues, as well as technology uptake with increasing deployments. Following the success of the previous two editions, the “3rd Workshop on Interoperability and Open-Source Solutions for the Internet of Things (InterOSS-IoT)” focuses on exploring the potential of interoperable IoT platform technology to facilitate and enhance the creation of complex systems and associated open source technology and open protocols. The workshop addresses current challenges in the IoT interoperability domain and promotes uptake of emerging open source solutions and best practices from IoT deployment experiences. Organized as a scientific event, workshop’s objective is to foster the exchange of practical experiences within the IoT community as well as contribute to create new ideas around open issues and gaps on Internet of Things platforms interoperability, architectural principles, standardization efforts, and deployment experiences. We invite authors to submit scientific papers reporting advance in the state of the art and practical experiences on interoperable IoT solutions, solutions relying on open-source software as well as emerging concepts and visionary papers.
