Special Session: Recent Advancements in Internet of Things (IoT)

The objective of this special session is to give an insight about recent advancements in Internet of Things (IoT).  It will provide a platform to the researchers, academicians, industry experts to share their knowledge & experiences in context to the development of new technologies and their applications.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to revolutionize fields ranging from agriculture to health care to personal living by connecting the Internet to physical things. These things are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity, which enables these objects to collect and exchange data. The Internet of Things allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure. Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020. So, this IoT Special Session is devoted to research on advanced IoT systems which provides a forum for researchers, from academia and industry, to present, discuss and understand innovative ideas and solutions related to all facets of internet-of-things. It is also an unique opportunity for professionals to both understand and disseminate cutting-edge trends and thinking, besides networking and learning from each other.
