    ITU-T addresses the Internet of Things in a specific work group

    There is a new work group by ITU-T that focuses on the IoT. Some of the work items that will be addressed include:

  • Concept, vision and use cases of the Internet of Things
  • Architectural framework of the Internet of Things
  • Identification architecture for the Internet of Things
  • Requirements for IoT identifier
  • IoT Identifier format
  • Identifier resolutions for the Internet of Things
  • Directory service framework for the Internet of Things
  • Middleware architecture for the Internet of Things
  • Security issues for the Internet of Things
  • Privacy protection for the Internet of Things
  • Application interfaces among IoT service entities
  • Management for the things and communication networks for the Internet of Things
  • Location management for the Internet of Things
  • Identity management for the Internet of Things
  • Interoperability standards to incorporate various standards
  • Conformance test standards for IoT protocols
  • They claim that “IoT-GSI (Globals Standards Initiative – not GS1) will provide a single location for information on and development of IoT standards”. Sounds a little too centralistic for an for a decentralised Internet (of Things), but I´m sure we will see interesting contributions from this initiative for the future IoT. One of the objectives is to provide a definition of the IoT (one more to add to the list :-)). Link

    Internet of Things and the Future Internet

    The program for the Internet of Things session next week in Budapest is now online.

    “The Internet of Things (IoT), which is one of the major topics in the Future Internet Week being addressed in Budapest, is becoming slowly but steadily one of the core elements of the Future Internet (FI). In fact, various architectures and approaches (e.g. using web services to connect directly “things” to the Internet) are being developed as of today. At this particular point, it is essential to discuss what are the IoT-specific aspects that the FI architecture has to take into account, in order to efficiently map the IoT architectures into an overall FI architecture.”

    2nd Call for Papers: ViNOrg 11 – 1st International Conference on Virtual and Networked Organizations: Emergent Technologies and Tools

    Here is another interesting conference with certain links to an Internet of Things that will take place in Portugal from July 6th to July 8th 2011. “The overall objectives of the conference are to contribute to the development, implementation and promotion of advanced emergent IC technologies to be used in future Virtual and Networked Organizations, through the discussion and sharing of knowledge, as well as experiences and scientific and technical results.” The CfP still shows an April deadline, but I did receive a mail that mentions May 20, 2011 as the final (?) deadline. Proceedings will be published by Springer.
