IoT is an emerging concept that involves a larger and larger number of heterogeneous smart everyday-life objects. They enable a large scope of new applications that require all these objects to communicate, to interact, to share data and processes. All these objects have popped up from there to there, using their own communication means, OS or language. A key open issue to realize the full capacity of such concept is thus interoperability. How to make them fully compliant? This conference will present some current research and open issues in interoperability in IoT, ranging from virtualization to standardization. 

After some market consolidation happening mostly between 2011 and 2013, IoT products are now hitting the market across all segments: consumer (wearables, home automation), commercial (HVAC, parking) and industrial (industrial process control, supervision). Often driven by the fear to “fall behind”, small and large companies push their engineering teams to productize solutions quickly. If those companies choose to implement standards-based products, the compliance testing, interoperation testing and labeling of their product may take over a year, which is often unacceptable giving todays rush-to-market. Companies therefore often go for in-house proprietary solutions, which can be developed and tested much faster.

The result is that the market is highly fragmented: a large number of non-interoperable solutions are being installed, eventually leading to increased cost, inefficiencies, customer frustration, and a rate of adoption of the IoT much slower than the numbers touted by analysts. The market is now at a state where we need to think about interoperability. What does it take to make different IoT solutions seamlessly integrate with one another? Are there architectures and tools one could develop to speed up interoperability testing? If interoperability isn’t feasible or desired, can we at least build in mechanisms for different product to coexist?

The goal of this conference is to bring together practicing engineers and advanced researchers to share the state-of-the-art around interoperability in the IoT, analyse what is needed, and identify the work that lies ahead to increase the number of interoperable IoT products.


  • The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.

  • All accepted papers will be submitted for publication in Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.

  • Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: EI, ISI Thomson's Scientific and Technical Proceedings at Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

  • Best Papers will be considered for publication in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications.

Conference Topics

The International Conference on Interoperability in IoT solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas:

  • coexistence and interoperability
  • experimental results on interoperability
  • standardization activities around interoperability
  • novel protocols and techniques which favor interoperability
  • studies on interoperability between different protocols, hardware and technologies
  • gap analysis on interoperability
  • architectures enabling interoperability, virtualization
  • novel architectures for interoperability testing
  • tools and testbeds to support interoperability testing
  • open-source projects around interoperability in IoT
  • interoperability between different IoT implementations
  • survey on interoperability and heterogeneity  in IoT infrastructures

Best Paper Award

The program committee will select one of the accepted papers as the “InterIoT 2016 Best Paper Award”. The winner(s) will be announced during the conference.
