InterOSS-IoT 2018

3rd International Workshop on

Interoperability and Open-Source Solutions for
the Internet of Things (InterOSS-IoT ’18)

(Half-day workshop, 06 June, 09:00 – 13:00)

Co-located with

Global IoT Summit (GIoTS 2018)

04-08 June, 2018, Bilbao, Spain

The workshop is co-organized by H2020 symbIoTe and BIG IoT projects, which are part of the Internet of Things European Platform Initiative (IoT-EPI) working on relevant aspects for enabling and bridging the gaps on IoT interoperability.

Internet of Things Interoperability resides on the principle of connecting a large number of devices to a global infrastructure to offer added value features and global services across IoT platforms. In the past years we have witnessed the consolidation of communication protocols connecting various devices and the advent of open source frameworks for IoT interoperability. Standardization initiatives, industry alliances, and collaborative research projects have developed solutions to address the challenge of IoT interoperability. Sensor, actuator, and “thing” description formats as well as communication protocols and APIs have been designed to build advanced cross-domain IoT solutions and entire ecosystems based on interoperable IoT platform technologies. The challenges ahead are to advance interoperable IoT technologies for handling complex tasks and global interconnected systems in trendy verticals with high impact on the society, e.g. smart cities and ports, healthcare, automated manufacturing lines, connected robots, or autonomous vehicles. Open source interoperability solutions and open standards remain a viable option to automate the collaboration between otherwise closed IoT platforms with key challenges related to semantics, uniform APIs, security, privacy and trust issues, as well as technology uptake with increasing deployments.

Topics of interest include (not limited to):

IoT Principles, Design and Technology

  • Interoperability solutions for IoT systems and platforms
  • Standardisation efforts related to IoT solutions and Applications
  • Key concepts for interoperable IoT architectures
  • Semantic models for the IoT Platforms Data Exchange
  • Security, privacy and trust for IoT Devices and Platforms
  • IoT device Data Mash-Ups and platforms Orchestration
  • Solutions for IoT platform federations and interworking
  • Distributed ledger technology for interoperable IoT ecosystems

IoT Experiments, Practice and Applications

  • IoT applications and real life deployments, e.g., in Smart Cities, Healthcare, Industrial IoT, Robotics, Autonomous Vehicles
  • Experiences from real industrial IoT deployments
  • Recent advances in open source IoT platforms and tools
  • Experimentally-driven Internet of Things experience
  • Business perspectives on IoT ecosystem creation
  • Business models and marketplaces
