Call for Papers IIKI2012, (IoT2012) in Wuxi, China on October 24-26, 2012: "With the recent advances and falling cost of RFID, sensor networks, NFC, and other relevant technologies, the Internet of Things comes to our view, and will be applied in our daily life and business process management. The wonderful living of humans and high efficiency of business relies mostly on intelligent technologies and the seamless integration of the information in the virtual world and the things existed in real world. Full intelligentialization would be the ultimate goal of the Internet of Things. Achieving this goal requires the identification of things, the integration and management of heterogeneous data, and knowledge-based decision systems. Due to the varieties of different technologies, such as RFID, sensor networks, NFC, Bluetooth, Zigbee, WiFi, WiMAX, we face several key challenges: How to identify the things? How to integrate and transfer enriched data? How to collect and process information? How to retrieve the knowledge automatically from the huge volumes of data and information? How to share the knowledge among smart things? How to ensure the security of the information and protect the private information?"

The challenges on technologies of identification, information, and knowledge systems are the primary issues for the purpose of full implementation of the Internet of Things. This workshop aims to provide the scientific community a dedicated forum for discussing research, development, and deployment efforts in these technologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scopes:

−    Identification technologies in the Internet of Things
−    Technologies of data management and integration in the Internet of Things
−    Business information processing and business models in the Internet of Things
−    Integration of heterogeneous information for the Internet of Things
−    Management information systems of the Internet of Things
−    Knowledge retrieving and sharing mechanisms in the Internet of Things
−    Enterprise knowledge management in the Internet of Things
−    Reasoning algorithms for the knowledge systems in the Internet of Things
−    Interoperability including Semantic interoperability in the Internet of Things
−    Privacy protection and security issues of the Internet of Things
−    Service oriented computing in the Internet of Things
−    Intelligent applications of the Internet of Things
−    Data Mining in the Internet of Things
−    Context Awareness in the Internet of Things
−    Positioning and tracking based on Information processing in the Internet of Things

Submission Details
