Twenty years ago, Mark Weiser published an article in Scientific American foretelling a time when computers would become such an integral part of our environment that we didn't notice them anymore. The concept was coined "ubiquitous computing", which today has inspired the "Internet of Things". The Internet of Things envisions a world in which all the sensors and radio devices will be connected to the Internet, and be readily accessible to a wide range of applications. These sensors and radio devices are usually attached to physical objects, thus providing a real-time, interactive view of the physical world. Although much progress has occurred at the system and sensor level, applications for these platforms are considerably lagging behind. Without compelling and exciting applications, the vision of the Internet of Things will be hard to realize.


This workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers to present thoughts and recent results that address the application void. We are looking for application descriptions, experiences and evaluations in a wide range of domains including, but not limited to homes, offices, medical care, and vehicles. Particularly, we are interested in identifying new applications that are made possible by the Internet of Things, as well as new challenges these applications will pose to the design of an Internet of Things.


The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to IoT applications for:


* Smart Homes

* Smart Offices

* Elder Care and Assisted living

* Vehicles and Transportation

* Hospitals and Healthcare

* Retail, Shopping, and supply chains

* Schools and Education
