InfoFlow: The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Flow Oriented Approaches in Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems

Call for Papers

The workshop aims to provide researchers and practitioners a forum for presenting and discussing research challenges, design/implementation of new architectures, and experiences on timely/real-time utilization of massive information flows which IoT devices and cyber-physical systems generate.

The area of Internet of Things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems has become a very attractive field for innovative research, due to the economical impact and high expectations for drastically smartening our world. Trillion-scale IoT devices including sensors and actuators are predicted to be installed in “things” such as machines, humans, vehicles, buildings, and environments in the near future. At the same time, we are facing research challenges on how to handle huge numbers of information flows (or data streams) gushed from massive devices effectively and timely.

Scope of the Workshop

Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and industry, working in the areas of IoT and cyber-physical systems are invited to discuss state of the art solutions, novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies, architecture, algorithms, techniques, experience reports, and tools for handling information flows from/to a number of devices. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Stream computing technologies for real-time flow processing
  • Network architecture, algorithms, protocols and platforms for information flow processing
  • Content curation on data streams
  • Information flow oriented fog computing and mobile edge-computing
  • Information flow oriented approaches in smart home and smart city networking
  • Middleware for information flow processing
  • Security and privacy issues on processing information flows from IoT devices and cyber-physical systems
  • Dynamic matching and routing of flows between producers and consumers of data streams
  • Monitoring, visualization, modelling and analysis of information flows
  • Applications of information flow processing
