Keynote Confirmed

Ralph Müller as keynote speaker of the InterOSS-IoT 2016 workshop confirmed!

Ralph Müller isralphmueller currently the Managing Director of the Eclipse Foundation Europe GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Eclipse Foundation Inc., responsible for supporting the Eclipse open-source community and commercial ecosystem in Europe.

With over 200 corporate members worldwide and over 200 projects with more than 900 developers, Eclipse is one of the world’s most successful open source communities. Its projects are focused on building an open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building, deploying and managing software across the lifecycle. A large, vibrant ecosystem of major technology vendors, innovative start-ups, universities and research institutions and individuals extend, complement and support the Eclipse Platform.

Prior to joining Eclipse in 2005, Ralph Müller has worked for Vector Informatik, IBM , Object Technology International and Siemens-Nixdorf.
Ralph Müller has earned a degree as a Diplom-Informatiker from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany.

Call for Papers

The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to the emergence of various IoT platforms that provide access to a broad range of virtual and physical “things”. IoT platforms typically promote their own, specific interfaces and information models. This generates technology fragmentation, non-standard solutions, and proprietary protocols to interact with things. The result is missing interoperability among IoT platforms that prevents the emergence of cooperative IoT ecosystems.

The previous successful edition of this workshop focused on understanding the landscape on IoT open source and emerging IoT interoperability platforms. This year’s “2nd Workshop on Interoperability and Open-Source Solutions for the Internet of Things (InterOSS-IoT 2016)” focuses on the challenges of achieving IoT platform interoperability and to promote the uptake by industry from emerging open source solutions and best practices from IoT deployment experiences. The workshop’s objective is to foster the exchange of practical experiences within the IoT community, to contribute solutions for open issues on the IoT, as well as architectural principles and standardization efforts to bridge the gap of IoT interoperability. We invite authors to submit scientific papers reporting on the advances in state of the art and practical experiences on interoperable IoT solutions, as well as solutions relying on open source software, emerging concepts, or visionary papers.

Topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited, to the following:

IoT Design and Principles
· Interoperability solutions for the IoT and/or M2M
· Standardisation efforts related to the IoT
· Semantics and information models for the IoT
· Security and privacy for IoT solutions

IoT Technologies and Experiments
Advances in interoperable IoT architectures
· Service orchestration and IoT platform federation
· Experimentally-driven IoT experience
· Interoperability in relation with European IoT platforms

IoT Practice and Applications
· Interoperable IoT applications in areas such as: Smart Cities, Wearables, Agrifood Sector, Industrial IoT, Connected and self-driving car, Healthcare & Environmental Monitoring
· Interoperable open source IoT implementations
· Business perspectives on IoT ecosystem creation
· IoT business models and marketplace concepts
· Deployments and industrial solutions

Workshop Proceedings

Submitted papers will be reviewed by three independent experts in the field. Post-workshop proceedings will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Post-proceedings from the previous workshop are available, here.
