Call For Papers

*First ACS/IEEE International Workshop onInternet of Things, Systems,
Management and Security  (IOTSMS 2014)*
with 11th IEEE AICCSA 2014, November 10-13, 2014, Doha, Qatar

*URL: *

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers unprecedented opportunities
to interconnect human beings as well as Machine-to-Machine (M2M)
communication, whereby sensors and networks allow all ‘things’ to
communicate directly with each other to share vital information and allow
us to have an instrumented universe where accurate data is readily
available to inform optimal decision making. The IoT would enable a range
of new capabilities and services far beyond today’s offerings which will
radically change how people go about their lives. According to Cisco IBSG’s
prediction, the number of objects connected to the Internet is set to reach
25 billion by 2015 and 50 billion by 2020. The scale of the IoT is set to
have a major economical, social and environmental impacts; the intersection
of which forms the future sustainable growth. The Internet of Things:
Systems, Management and Security (IOT_SMS) workshop will be held in
conjunction with 11th ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems
and Applications (AICCSA' 2014) The IOT_SMS workshop aims at soliciting
original ideas on the broad area of IoT including challenges and
opportunities, concepts and applications and future trends. The workshop
aims to facilitate discussions amongst academics and IoT practitioners and
make positive contributions to the field. Authors are invited to submit
original, unpublished manuscripts. Submitted papers should be in accordance
with IEEE format, and will be reviewed by at least two expert reviewers in
terms of relevance, originality, contribution, correctness, and
presentation. Accepted papers will be published by IEEE press and will be
indexed by IEEE Xplore.
