After virtual editions in the previous years, the fifth IFIP Internet of Things (IoT) conference took place in person in the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 27-28 October 2022. 

With 40 participants, two keynotes, 20 refereed papers, one panel session and 10 posters, the event was very successful with a high level of interaction and quality discussions, proving the added value of in-person meetings. 

Within the overall theme of “IoT through a Multi-Disciplinary Perspective”, the conference explored a wide array of topics, clustered along the following themes: 

  • IoT for Smart Villages 
  • Security and Safety
  • Smart Home
  • Development, Engineering, Machine Learning
  • Applications

Two excellent keynotes saw Michael Beigl of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany present on wearable computing, while Harold Weffers (Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands) explored initiatives with respect to an internet of secure things. 

The panel session addressed the relationship between AI and the IoT and included very good interaction between the panel members and participants. The refereed papers are included in the proceedings, AICT 665, see 

In addition to the proceedings, the posters will be published with a brief explanation in a separate booklet that will become available for free in the IFIP Digital Library. 

Selected papers will be eligible for an enhanced version in a special issue in the Springer Nature Computer Science (SNCS) journal (
