The first cross-domain IFIP Internet of Things (IoT) Conference has issued a Call for Papers.

The IFIP IoT Conference will be held from 18-20 September 2018, as one of the streams within the World Computer Congress (WCC2018).

IoT is hot. Experts and organizations are addressing the topic in policy statements, papers and conferences.

While early developments focused on lower level aspects such as interfacing, communication protocols and standards, base platforms, energy efficiency and energy harvesting, smart devices and smart sensors, new challenges have since emerged.

The exponential growth in the number of devices and sensors connected to Internet and their increasing levels of embedded intelligence means IoT professionals must also consider organizational structures, collaborative cyber-physical ecosystems, end-user development, self-organizing systems, distributed decision making, collective adaptive and cognitive systems, behavioural models, systems resilience, handling big data, etc.

The IFIP IoT Conference will addresses this wide variety of aspects with papers exploring technical advancements, research on major questions, policy issues and more.

The conference seeks submissions from IoT users, ICT professionals, user organizations, ICT industry, authorities/regulators, producers, implementers and more. Topics could include:

  • Technical issues and challenges
  • Legal issues (incl liability)
  • Ethical issues
  • Education, training, awareness
  • End-User Development
  • Usability and accessibility
  • Context-dependent applications
  • Environmental issues
  • Organizational and collaborative structures
  • Risks, Privacy, Security, and Resilience issues
  • Impact on persons and society
  • Novel applications and business models
  • Professionalism / duty of care.

Submissions are due by 15 March 2018. For more information, visit or contact Leon Strous at
