Hi all,

It's our pleasure to announce the 7th International Workshop on the Web of
Things (WoT2016 ) to be held in conjunction with IoT 2016.

Many member of this group took part in the past but for those who have
never attended it, WoT was the first workshop on the topic, created in 2010
and has been one of the vibrant places to disseminate WoT related research
and ideas.

We would love to get submissions from the WoT IG and the public community.
Also, if you are willing to help or be part of the PC do contact us. We
should also use WoT2016 as a forum to disseminate the work of the WoT IG.

Please find the CFP below and more information on the official Web Site:

CALL FOR PAPERS - Seventh International Workshop on the Web of Things (WoT
in conjunction with IoT 2016, Stuttgart, Germany, November 7-9, 2016.

* Workshop Abstract

Continuing the successful Web of Things workshop series, this workshop aims
at further exploring the use of technologies and principles at the core of
the Web to provide methods for a seamless integration of physical devices.
In particular, our goal is to foster discussion about systems that enable a
real-time Web of Things and the discovery, search, and composition of
services provided by Web-enabled things as well as the interaction of users
with such devices.

* Important Dates

Paper submission deadline: September 19, 2016
Notification of acceptance: October 10, 2016
Camera-ready papers due: October 24, 2016
Workshop date: tbd (November 7-9, 2016)

* Contributing to WoT 2016

WoT 2016 solicits contributions in all areas related to the Web of Things,
and we invite application designers to think beyond sensor networks and Web
applications, and to imagine, design, build, evaluate, and share their
thoughts and visions on what the future of the Web and networked devices
will be.

- Integration of embedded computers, wireless sensor networks, every-day
appliances, smart gateways, and things using a Web approach
- Real-time communication with physical objects (e.g., WebSocket, Web-RTC,
- Web-based discovery, search, composition, and physical mashups
- Use of semantic technologies to facilitate the interaction with and
between things on the Web
- Models, paradigms, and systems that enable the interaction with physical
things for humans
- Security, privacy, access control, and sharing of physical things on the
- Application of Web tools and techniques in the physical world (e.g.,
REST, HTML5, 6lowpan, social networks)
- Cloud platforms and services for the Web of Things
- Concrete applications, use-cases, deployments, and evaluations of
Web-enabled Things in contexts such as smart homes, connected cities, and
Web 2.0 enterprises

This seventh edition of the Web of Things workshop series will provide an
interactive forum for WoT researchers to learn about and discuss existing
efforts related to Web-based interactions with smart things. In order to
ensure a high-quality technical session, submissions must cover one of the
topics above and should not exceed six (6) ACM conference format pages.
Research papers must be original prior unpublished work and not under
review elsewhere as they will be published to the ACM digital library and
listed on DBLP. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and selected based on
their originality, merit, and relevance to the workshop. Submission
requires at least one author to present the paper on-site. If you can, we
encourage authors of accepted papers to bring a prototype and demonstrate
it at the workshop, as part of an open demonstration session.
