RFID and the Internet of Things - Are you ready?
International Workshop – 10-11
May, Oslo, Norway.
"Internet of Things (IoT) is an integrated part of Future Internet and could be defined as a dynamic global network infrastructure with self configuring capabilities based on standard and interoperable communication protocols where physical and virtual “things” have identities, physical attributes, and virtual personalities and use intelligent interfaces, and are seamlessly integrated into the information network.
In the IoT, “things” are expected to become active participants in business, information and social processes where they are enabled to interact and communicate among themselves and with the environment by exchanging data and information “sensed” about the environment, while reacting autonomously to the “real/physical world” events and influencing it by running processes that trigger actions and create services with or without direct human intervention.
Interfaces in the form of services facilitate interactions with these “smart things” over the Internet, query and change their state and any information associated with them, taking into account security and privacy issues.
Vision and Challenges for Realising the
Internet of Things” European
Commission, Brussels, March 2010,
The workshop is a
scientific forum for the European Union's and The Research Council of
Norway Internet of Things Initiative, an effort to align Internet research
on the shared challenges presented by Europe's increasingly
Internet-based society and economy.
The workshop is intended to bridge traditional disciplinary boundaries
of Internet of Things research, emphasizing
the use of machine understandable semantics to enable diverse
communities, devices, and organizational groupings to share Internet
resources. The goal is to bring together, researchers and practitioners
from industry and research working in the area of nanoelectronics,
sensor, communication, network, data/information/knowledge management, cognitive and software technologies.
