IoTDI 2017 Call for Papers (CFP in PDF)



A confluence of technological advances marks the advent of a new era. World data volume is growing at an unprecedented pace, much of it from embedded devices. Smart cities are expected to grow, fed by millions of data points from multitudes of human and physical sources. Cyber-attacks grow more nefarious, bringing down physical systems. Social networks are becoming ubiquitous, offering information on physical things. The separation between cyber, physical, and social systems is blurring. Collectively, these developments lead to the emergence of a new field, where the networking and physical realms meet. It is the field of the Internet of Things (IoT). This conference is an interdisciplinary forum to discuss challenges, technologies, and emerging directions in system design and implementation that pertain to this Internet of Things. This conference invites researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, and accepts original, previously unpublished work on a range of topics related to the Internet of Things.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Analytic foundations and theory of the Internet of Things
  • Reliability, security, timeliness, and robustness in IoT systems
  • Novel protocols and network abstractions
  • Data streaming architectures
  • IoT-motivated cyber-physical and Industrial-Internet Systems
  • Novel quality requirements and their enforcement mechanisms
  • Cloud back-ends and resource management for IoT applications
  • Personal, wearable, and other embedded networked front-ends
  • Social computing and human-in-the-loop issues
  • IoT-based adaptive and self-* systems
  • Applications and drivers for the Internet of Things
  • Industrial deployment experiences, case studies, and lessons learned
  • Evaluation and testbeds

New This Year

IoTDI will have joint panel and/or technical sessions with ACM/IEEE International Conference on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN) to increase cross-pollination of ideas among the attendees.

Submission Instructions

Original work must be submitted that is not published or under submission elsewhere. Manuscripts may not exceed twelve (12) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5x11” pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, references, and appendices.

IoTDI 2017 Call for Posters/Demos (CFP in PDF)

ACM/IEEE IoTDI is a premier conference on IoT and a new member of CPS Week! Topics span the entire ecosystem revolving around IoT, such as cloud and edge computing, data analytics, sensor networks, mobile devices, Internet architecture, middleware and numerous IoT applications. IoTDI organizers invite you to submit posters and demos.

Important Dates:

  • Submission deadline: Wednesday, Feb 15th
  • Acceptance notification: Monday, Feb 20th
  • Final manuscript deadline: Wednesday, March 1st

Poster/Demo Submission Link

Submit your posters and demos through EasyChair.

Poster Submissions

Posters will provide an opportunity for conference attendees to learn about innovative work in progress and to preview late-breaking research results. Poster sessions will provide an informal setting for presenters to communicate ideas or results and obtain feedback from attendees. If you have any questions, please contact the poster chair: Octav Chipara (University of Iowa) at

Submissions describing posters should be at most 2 pages PDF using the ACM proceedings format . The submission should include:

  • Title of the poster (beginning with “Poster Abstract:”)
  • Authors, affiliations, and contact information
  • A description of the problems addressed
  • Research and technical approach
  • Preliminary results
  • Related work with bibliography

Demo Submissions

Demo submissions will give the audience an up-close peek into the latest technologies, systems, devices, and other (Internet-) “Things,” offering an interactive experience with the demonstrated entities. Demo abstracts should describe both the technology being showcased as well as the user experience of the demo. If you have any questions, please contact the demo chair: Mi Zhang (Michigan State University) at

Submissions describing live demos should be at most 2 pages PDF using the ACM proceedings format . The submission should include the following:

  • Title of the demo (beginning with “Demo Abstract:”)
  • Authors, affiliation, and contact information
  • A description of the problems addressed
  • Research and technical approach
  • A description of user experience/interaction with the demo
  • Related work with bibliography
