1st Workshop on Internet of Things, Process Modelling and Microservices (IoTM'17)

Prague, Czech Republic, 3 - 6 September, 2017

IoTM'17 is joining IWCPS'17 and the accepted IoTM'17 papers will be presented within the IWCPS'17 conference

While the initial IoT community was built around Wireless Sensor Networks, nowadays we deal with far more heterogeneous kind of devices aiming to get connected each other and with third party services therefore monolithic architectures no longer align with an environment where every device has computer power capabilities and wireless connection. Intelligent IoT devices are event-driven, agent-based, network connected systems, rather than simple sensor networks and this makes IoT architectures challenging. As IoT systems must be able to scale and evolve over time adapting to new hardware, technologies and requirements, a very promising response is the Microservice Architectural Style that gained a lot of popularity in the industry in recent years. Among other methodologies, IoT ontologies and rule-based modeling of Microservices will insure IoT interoperability as vendors have published their protocols, and have exposed API’s to their various hubs.

The 1st IoTM workshop invites paper submissions from diverse communities, including researchers from: universities, companies, government agencies, and standardization bodies. Papers are sought that address solutions to problems in above discussed areas of architecture, modelling and implementation of IoT, Business Processes and Microservices.


Major topics of interest include:

  • IoT ontologies and interoperability 
  • Semantics of Microservices, Rule-based modelling of Microservices
  • Business Process Modelling and execution of Microservices
  • IoT architectures and  Microservices orchestration
  • Context-awareness in IoT and Microservices
  • Decentralized Data Models and Data Management
  • Data Curation for Microservices
  • SmartCities, Smart Housing, Smart Education Systems, Ambient Intelligence Systems

Paper submission

  • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF or MSWord file).
  • The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages IEEE style (including tables, figures and references). IEEE style templates are available here.
  • Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.
  • Preprints containing accepted papers will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants.
  • Only papers presented at the conference will be published in Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® database.
  • Conference proceedings will be published in a volume with ISBN, ISSN and DOI numbers and posted at the conference WWW site.
