Call for Papers

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the internetworking of physical devices with embedded electronics that can transfer data with no human interaction. Examples are wearable devices, environmental sensors, machinery in factories, devices in homes and buildings, or components in a vehicle. These connected devices produce an exponentially growing amount of data. In fact, these data grow 2× faster (currently @ 44E Bytes/month) than social and computer-generated data. IoT-generated data includes sensor data in time series format, image, sound and video data. Today, most of this data is not used.

This workshop will explore how AI techniques can be used to:

  1. Make sense of these vast amounts of IoT data in order to
  2. Reason about connected physical systems and environments in order to
  3. Assist humans with the execution of actions.

Hence, we solicit AI-related papers on topics such as

Making sense of IoT Data and of human interactions in connected environments:

  • AI methods for analysing uncertain sensor data
  • AI problems while analysing massive amounts of sensor data (novel clustering and classification methods)
  • AI methods for intention analysis (e.g. prediction of activities and user goals)
  • Improving indoor localisation techniques using AI and ML techniques
  • Cooperative and collaborative data processing in dense indoor environments (e.g., multi-agent systems, in-network processing approaches)
  • Activity recognition (in particular AI approaches for infrastructure mediated and device-free passive sensing)

Reasoning about connected physical systems and environments:

  • Machine learning (ML) methods for effective energy monitoring and analysis
  • AI methods to manage/improve information security in IoT systems
  • Ubiquitous/pervasive computing and context awareness
  • Smart room/home/buildings technologies
  • Ambient/urban intelligence

Assisting humans with the execution of actions:

  • Assisted living technologies and algorithms
  • Intelligent reasoning in sensor-enhanced (mobile) crowd sourcing
  • Decision support systems for field workers
  • IoT applications in areas such as electronics, buildings, retail, automotive

As usual, the above list is not an exhaustive list but an indicative one.
