Hi Maxim,

I am afraid that at that kind of level for next year I only know of the IAB one in San Jose. 

Ciao,

>> This raises a number of questions:

>> - What is the role of formal languages, such as schema languages, in

>> - What is the role of metadata, which is attached to data to make it

>> - How can we achieve interoperability when different organizations,
>> companies and individuals develop extensions?
>> - What is the experience with interworking various data models developed
>> from different groups, or with data models that evolved over time?
>> - What functionality should online repositories for sharing schemas

>> - How can existing data models be mapped against each other to offer

>> guests.
>> 
>> Participation at the workshop is free of charge.
>> 
>> Important Dates
>> 
>> Position papers must be submitted by February 22nd, 2016 at the latest.
>> 
>> The program committee will review submitted position papers and send an
>> invitation to the workshop to one of the paper authors. Invitations will
>> be distributed by February 27th, 2016 at the latest.
>> 
>> This workshop will be a day and a half, and take place on the 17th and
>> 18th of March, 2016.
>> 
>> Position Paper Requirements
>> 
>> Interested parties must submit a brief document. We welcome papers that

>> questions, write-ups of deployment experience, lessons-learned from
>> successful or failed attempts, and ideally a vision. Contributions are
>> not required to be original in content.
>> 
>> We solicit brief write-ups of one to three pages, formatted as HTML,
>> PDF, or plain text (for example as a submitted Internet Draft).
>> Representatives of IoT Standards Development Organizations or Alliances,
>> who have published relevant specifications, and representatives of
>> vendors who have shipped commercial IoT products supporting multiple
>> schemas, may minimally submit a pointer to existing documentation.
>> 
>> We will publish accepted position papers (as well as meeting minutes,
>> slides, and a workshop report). Please send your position paper to
>> iotsi@iab.org.
>> 
>> Venue
>> 
>> The planned location for the workshop is San Jose, California, US. We
>> will provide the full details of the meeting venue to the invited
>> workshop participants. The workshop includes coffee and tea during
>> breaks.

>> IPR Policy
>> 
>> The workshop will have no expectation of IPR disclosure or licensing
>> related to its submissions.
