Call for Posters, Demos and Late-Breaking Results

The objective of the Posters, Demos and Late-Breaking Results sessions is to give researchers in emerging research areas and their applications the opportunity to present early results in order to share experiences and strategies. You are cordially invited to submit Posters and Demos and Late-Breaking Results papers reporting on recent findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work.

 

Submission Information

Submissions to the Poster, Demos and Late-Breaking Results track are in the form of a short paper and submitted as a PDF file.

Link to the template: Latex  Word
Link to an example following the template.

Papers have to be submitted via our EasyChair submission site  conference system, must be written in English and contain original material that has not been published or is currently undergoing review elsewhere. The submission length should no exceed 4 pages and follow the ACM SIGCHI Paper format (2-column). Authors should submit their poster proposals no later than July 30th August 13th 23:59 (HST) 2018. Papers are peer-reviewed by a committee of experts in the IoT field. Accepted papers will be listed on DBLP and published via the ACM Digital Library. Cases of plagiarism or multiple submissions will be subject to disciplinary action as per ACM rules and regulations, and no-shows at the conference will result in an exclusion from the ACM Digital Library.

Your submission should be close to camera-ready and thoroughly copy-edited due to the short selection cycle. Furthermore, due to the very rapid selection process we cannot offer any extensions to the deadline. Submissions are not anonymous and should therefore include all author names, affiliations and contact information and references to external data, software or videos, if applicable. Each application will be evaluated based on the IoT Topics of Interest.

Poster Display Size: When preparing accepted posters please note that your poster should not exceed the following dimensions: 841 x 1189 mm portrait format. Other formats will not be supported.

 

What are Late-Breaking Results

A Late-Breaking Results submission is a short report of recent findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant to the IoT community. They represent work that has not reached a level of completion or maturity expected in the main track of the conference. Submissions should report on cutting edge or emerging work that has not been fully realized or developed and for which empirical data may not yet be available. Still, submissions should make a contribution to the State-of-the-Art in the field. A significant benefit of a Late-Breaking Results work is derived from the discussion between authors and conference attendees that will be fostered by the face-to-face presentation of the work. Please note that summaries of published work or reduced versions of main track IoT submissions are inappropriate as a Late-Breaking Result submissions and will be rejected.

 

Topics of Interest

Submissions to the Poster, Demos and Late-Breaking Results track are encouraged but not limited to the following topics:

Architectures for IoT

  • Internet of Things Architecture: Novel information architecture design on field, edge, and cloud devices; object access and networking technology; investigation of technologies that support the mobility of functions and executions across system entities.
  • Web Technologies for the IoT: Web-based discovery, search, and service composition to facilitate interactions between devices on the IoT and with users.
  • Integration of Physical and Virtual Artifacts and Events: Advanced object identification, classification, and localization
  • Description and Discovery of IoT devices, including mobile and moving devices: Ontologies and data models for the description and discovery of mobile systems and applications, including autonomous systems and wearable, urban or sensory computing devices.

Human-Object Interactions (HOI)

  • IoT Interactions: Novel methods and techniques for seamless human-to-object interactions, including Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality interactions, Tangible and Gestural Interfaces.
  • Novel affordances for IoT and Smart Objects: design of novel affordance for IoT-based smart objects

Object-Object Interactions (OOI)

  • Interoperability of IoT Systems: Service discovery and composition, synchronization in distributed systems, overcoming siloization of IoT systems, semantic data description frameworks.
  • Object-objects Interactions: methods and protocols for co-operations and coordination among objects, social internet of things, trust among objects

Privacy/security in IoT

  • Social Acceptance of IoT Systems: Data security, authentication and authorization. Privacy protection, data sharing technologies (incl. blockchain technology), tampering protection and detection in IoT systems.
  • Privacy/Security/Real-Time Fault Correction: Ensure privacy across integrated and wireless IoT systems while also being resilient to attackers.

IoT applications
