The Third International Symposium on Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security
(IOTSMS-2016)

in conjunction with

The 13th ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications AICCSA 2016

November 29th to December 2nd, 2016. Agadir, Morocco

                

 

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers unprecedented opportunities to interconnect human beings as well as Machine-to-Machine (M2M), whereby sensors and networks allow all ‘things’ to communicate directly with each other to share vital information allowing us to have an instrumented universe where accurate data is readily available to inform optimal decision making. The IoT is about to enable a range of new capabilities and services far beyond today’s offerings. It will fundamentally change how people go about their lives. According to Gartner, the number of objects connected to the Internet is set to reach 20 billion by 2020. Cisco estimates the number will be close to 26 billion objects by 2020. Others believe the actual number will be even higher with the assumption that any object with a simple micro controller and on-off switch will be connected to the Internet in the near feature. The scale of the IoT is set to have a major economic, social and environmental impacts; the intersection of which forms the future sustainable growth. The Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security (IOT_SMS) workshop will be held in conjunction with 13th ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications (AICCSA' 2016)The IOT_SMS workshop aims at soliciting original ideas on the broad area of IoT including challenges and opportunities, concepts and applications and future trends. The workshop aims to facilitate discussions among academics and IoT practitioners and make positive contributions to the field. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts. Submitted papers should be in accordance with IEEE format, and will be reviewed by at least two expert reviewers in terms of relevance, originality, contribution, correctness, and presentation.

Proceedings of the workshops will be published by the IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS) and will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE-Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society (CSDL) digital libraries.
