Introduction

The Internet of Things (iThings) is a network of Internet-enabled objects, which aims at increasing the ubiquity of the Internet by integrating every object for interaction via embedded systems and leads to the highly distributed network of devices communicating with human beings as well as other devices. Combining with the infrastructures of the every heterogeneous networks including Internet and mobile networks, these objects can communicate with humans, and enable peoples to monitor and control them and enjoy their intelligent services in anytime and anywhere.

 

The 2012 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings 2012) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the Internet of Things, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future. iThings 2012 is the next edition of the successful series, previously held as iThings 2011 (Dalian, China, October 2011), IOTS 2010 (Hangzhou, China, December 2010), EPS 2009 (Vancouver, Canada, August 2009), MINES 2009 (Hangzhou, China, May 2009), and MINES 2008 (Chengdu, China, July 2008).

Submission Guidelines


Authors are invited to submit original papers that MUST NOT have been submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or journal. Full Papers and Short Papers are solicited. Detailed submission instructions could be found on the conference website

http://ithings.univ-fcomte.fr

All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee for significance, originality, accuracy, and clarity.

 

Paper Publications


Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the conference to present the work in order for the paper to be included in the IEEE Digital Library.

IEEE iThings 2012 proceedings will be submitted for publication[1] in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (IEEE CSDL) and in IEEE Xplore. Proceedings will be submitted for indexing[2].

[1] While all conferences sponsored by the IEEE and/or published by CPS will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore and the CSDL, all conference proceedings must meet IEEE's quality standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards.

[2] The IEEE cannot guarantee that any particular abstract or index entry will be included in Ei Compendex or any other indexing service. IEEE makes its best efforts to ensure indexing, but the indexing services are independent organizations not subject to IEEE control.


Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in several SCI-index international journals:
  International Journal of Innovative Computing, Information and Control - ICIC International,
  Journal of Nano Communication Networks - Elsevier,
  Journal of Network and Computer Applications - Elsevier,
  Sensors - MDPI,
  New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia - Taylor and Francis,
  Journal of Mobile Multimedia - Rinton Press,
  International Journal of Communication Systems - Wiley,
  Journal of Embedded Computing - IOS Press,
  Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) - ACM/Springer
