Welcome

The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating new services and applications across various domains, including smart grids, intelligent transportation, healthcare, smart homes, and energy management. As a consequence, a complex ecosystem of interconnected applications, services, as well as physical and virtual devices emerges. In this ecosystem, enabled by corresponding middleware, devices share contextual data or receive control commands; services consume, process, and/or provide data; and applications leverage services and devices to fulfill users’ needs. This workshop focuses on two fundamental components in such ecosystems: the middleware that enables composition of applications, services, and devices; and the applications built on top of such middleware. Central topics of interest include the architecture of these components, how they process data, how they communicate with one another, and the process of how they are designed, implemented, and operated.

Program of the IoT Federated Workshops: M4IoT & MECC

M4IoT 2017 will be part of the IoT Federated Workshops, which also include the Workshop on Middleware for Edge Clouds & Cloudlets (MECC). This is the overall program:

Submissions

M4IoT 2017 seeks two kinds of paper submissions:

Please indicate the respective paper type on the title page of your submission.

Papers should describe original work (not submitted or published elsewhere) and be not more than six pages in length, including the abstract, all figures, tables, and references.

All papers should follow ACM formatting instructions, specifically the ACM SIG Proceedings Standard Style. The author kit containing the templates for the required style can be found here.

Along with the paper, you are encouraged to submit additional material (e.g., a link to a YouTube video) on a separate page which will not be published as part of the proceedings. We will later add the link to the submission site.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format via the submission site: https://m4iot17.hotcrp.com.

All accepted and presented papers will appear in a Middleware 2017 companion proceedings, which will be available in the ACM Digital Library.

Dates & location

Paper submission deadline: Sep. 9th 2017 Sep. 4th 2017
Author notification: Sep. 29th 2017 Sep. 28th 2017
Camera-ready copies: Oct. 15th 2017
Middleware early registration: Oct. 31st 2017 (details)

M4IoT is co-located with the Middleware conference, which will be held in Las Vegas, USA.
