PERSIST-IoT Workshop

Workshop on "Pervasive Systems in the IoT era". Catania (Italy) - July 2nd, 2019.

In conjunction with ACM MobiHoc 2019


Leveraging on the global interconnection of billions of tiny smart objects, the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is fostering the idea of Pervasive Smart Systems (PSSs), where all the data gathered by different “things” can be analyzed and used to improve the livability, the safety and the security of the environment, and to make IoT user lives easier. However, despite the research advancements in recent years, many open issues still prevent the full realization of such vision. To meet the requirements of PSSs, telecommunication systems should deliver significantly high data rates, traffic capacity, connection density, energy efficiency, as well as small latencies. Being massively distributed into the environment, smart things may generate, collect, exchange and process big data, provide distributed services, offer computational resources, and cooperate to perform some tasks locally, as well as to delegate their execution to more powerful nodes in the cloud or at the network edge. In addition to the traditional pull-based data delivery, push-based and publish/subscribe traffic patterns must be supported. To accommodate newly emerging services, the network infrastructure should be agile, cost effective and possibly softwarized. Finally, meeting security and privacy requirements will play a fundamental role in the PSSs; indeed, without effective mechanisms, attacks and malfunctions in the IoT will outweigh any of their benefits. The PERSIST-IoT workshop aims to solicit a collection of innovative papers reporting the most recent advancements in the fields of smart network architecture, protocols and practical implementations enabling IoT for smart systems applications. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to the following:
