Call for papers

The goal of this workshop is to bring the attention of researchers to the opportunities and challenges involved in engineering a web of things. Web technologies (e.g., HTML, JavaScript, Ajax, PHP, Ruby) can be used to build applications involving smart things, on the other hand well-known Web mechanisms are available to interact with and share these devices.
As a matter of fact, this calls for architectural styles and patterns that allow real-world objects to be part of the World Wide Web.
EnWoT 2017 aims at attracting contributions related to the subject at different levels, from modelling and design to engineering. Foundational contributions, as well as concrete application experiments are sought.


Topics of interested include but are not limited to:
  • Software architectural styles and patterns for connecting objects to the World Wide Web
  • Engineering smart objects on the web
  • Semantic web and Linked open data
  • Web of Thing and Internet of Everything
  • Challenges for Big Data and IoT applications
  • Architectures and Framework for smart devices connection
  • Other topics relevant to web of thing
