Special Track on Management of IoT

The special track calls are an initiative, originally launched at the 12th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2011), aiming at attracting contributions in specifically targeted areas of high interest to the networks and service management research community.

The 15th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2017) will feature a special track on Management of IoT.

Internet of Things (IoT) has experienced an explosive growth in the last few years especially because it offers great potential for applications in various scenarios and environments, ranging from applications such as target detection and tracking, environmental applications, industrial process systems, health, surveillance (e.g., intrusion detection), aviation, traffic monitoring, home, disaster monitoring, agriculture, structural monitoring, to its application to smart cities, just to name a few.

The aim of this Special Session is to provide a platform for practitioners, academia and researchers to disseminate and discuss current research findings, and also to explore recent development and future trends in Management of IoT, with emphasis in the following topics:

  • Planning and deployment;
  • Monitoring systems;
  • Networked control systems;
  • Performance, simulation, and modelling of IoT;
  • Architectures, protocols and algorithms for IoT management;
  • Testbeds, prototypes and applications.
