3rd EAI International Conference on Interoperability in IoT

November 6–7, 2017 | Valencia, Spain


3rd EAI International Conference on Interoperability in IoT



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. 

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.

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


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).


Accepted Authors will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to Special Issue in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Internet of Things 

The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work in special issues organized in important SCI and Scopus-impacted Journals.

Paper Submission:

Papers should be submitted through EAI 'Confy' system at Confy, and have to comply with the SPRINGER format (see Author's kit section).

Regular papers should be no more than 7 pages in length. 

Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of the paper implies agreement of the author(s) to attend the conference and present the paper if accepted. Full details of submission procedures are available here.

Best Paper Award:

The program committee will select one of the accepted papers as the “InterIoT 2017 Best Paper Award”. The winner(s) will be announced during the conference.
