The 1st IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things Design and Implementation (IoTDI 2016)

The 1st IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things Design and Implementation (IoTDI 2016)

April 4-6, 2016

Berlin, Germany


A confluence of many technological advances marks the advent of a new networked systems era. World data volume is growing at an unprecedented pace, much of it is from embedded devices. Smart cities are expected to grow, fed by millions of data points from multitudes of human and physical sources. Cyber-attacks grow more nefarious, bringing down physical systems. Social networks are becoming ubiquitous, offering information on physical things. The separation between cyber, physical, and social systems blurs. Collectively, these developments lead to the emergence of a new field, where networking and physical realms meet. It is the field of the Internet of Things (IoT). This conference offers an interdisciplinary venue to discuss challenges, technologies, and emerging directions in system design and implementation that pertain to the Internet of Things. Many sub-systems need to come together to address the needs of current and future applications. These subsystems extend from cloud back-ends to cyber-physical front ends. Reliability, security, robustness, correctness, and timeliness considerations in new medical, social, environmental, energy, and automation applications must be supported by advances in cloud resource management, network protocols, and smart embedded devices. This conference invites researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, and accepts original, previously unpublished work on Internet of Things topics.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to
  • Applications and drivers for the Internet of Things
  • Novel quality requirements and their enforcement mechanisms
  • Cloud back-ends and resource management for IoT applications
  • Reliability, security, timeliness, and robustness considerations in IoT systems
  • IoT-motivated cyber-physical, Industrial Internet, and/or embedded system challenges
  • Social computing and human-in-the-loop issues
  • Sensing, control, and actuation in IoT architectures
  • Novel protocols and network abstractions
  • Data streaming architectures
  • Analytic foundations and theory of the Internet of Things
  • Privacy challenges
  • Industrial deployment experiences, case studies, and lessons learned
  • Evaluation and testbeds

Important Dates

Submission Instructions

  • Original work must be submitted that is not published or under submission elsewhere. Manuscripts may not exceed twelve (12) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5×11” pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, references, and appendices.

Review process and publication

  • All original submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, presentation quality, interest and relevance to conference scope. We also welcome papers reporting on industrial deployment experiences, case studies, and lessons learned. After review, some submissions may be offered to be published as short papers (six pages). Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services.
