Interconnecting Smart Objects with the Internet Workshop
The Internet Architecture Board, the IETF Internet Area, the IETF Routing Area, the IETF Applications Area, and the European Commission will hold a workshop on the Friday, 25th March 2011 in Prague on the topic "Interconnecting Smart Objects with the Internet"
The workshop’s main focus will be on the discussions of technical topics. (Note: This is not a mini-conference where every author only briefly talks about their papers.)
In order to keep the group at a manageable size, participants are required to submit a position paper as an expression of interest. The authors of accepted position papers will be invited to attend the workshop. Active participation will be expected.
The workshop will be structured as a series of working sessions punctuated by invited speakers who will present relevant background information or controversial ideas that help participants reach a deeper understanding of the subject. The organizing committee may ask submitters of particularly salient papers to present their ideas and experiences at the workshop. For each slot, there will be one or two invited controversial speakers, and group work on the problem that’s identified, hopefully reaching either a deeper understanding of the problem or some means of approaching it.
Participation at the workshop is free of charge.
Position papers must be submitted at latest February, 11th, 2011. Note: An early submission allows us to provide you feedback!
Submitted position papers will be reviewed immediately by the program organizers and an invitation to the workshop will be sent to one of the paper authors. At the latest, invitations will be distributed by February, 25th.
