International Workshop on Knowledge Acquisition and Management in the Internet of Things (KAMIoT 2012)
in conjunction with IEE IUCC-2012 June 25-27, 2012 Liverpool, UK

The Internet of Things provides a promising vision of the future world where the virtual world of information technology integrates seamlessly with the real world of things. It is regarded as an ideal platform for people, as well as smart things, to communicate easily with each other not only in business and industries but also in our daily scenarios. Automation and intelligentialization are the primary characteristics of this promising environment where knowledge and information play key roles. The knowledge bases in the Internet of Things can acquire knowledge from domain experts as well as knowledge mining tools, which can retrieve new rules and models from massive information generated from people and things in future context of the Internet of Things. The models of knowledge management, knowledge refinement, and knowledge sharing are the keys to make the systems efficiently and effectively.


KAMIoT 2012 will provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing research, development, and deployment efforts on knowledge issues in the Internet of Things. We encourage researchers from both industry and academia to submit original results of their works. Broad understanding of possible approaches to solving knowledge issues in the Internet of Things would be also encouraged.
