== Deadline: May 15th, 2018

Workshops collocated with the *8th International Conference on the Internet
of Things (IoT 2018)* are opportunities to strengthen communities of
researchers and practitioners working in specific topics related to the
IoT. These events foster the exchange of new ideas, ongoing work, and
latests results, in established or emerging sub-domains of interest. They
are opportunities for IoT pioneers and practitioners in industry to share
hands-on experience with IoT systems (use cases, deployments,
architectures, etc.), and for researchers to present and receive feedback
on early research result.

We invite submission of half-day workshop proposals, with a clearly defined
scope that falls in the general topics of the conference. We also encourage
the submission of workshops that follow alternative formats such as
hackathons, plugfests, demo jams, or breakout sessions.
