About EnWoT
The goal of this workshop is to bring the attention of researchers to the opportunities and challenges involved in engineering a web of things.
In the new era of computing the development is evolving from traditional client-server architectures to decentralized multi-device architectures in which people use various types of Web-enabled client devices, and data are stored simultaneously in numerous devices and cloud-based services. This new era will dramatically raise the expectations for device interoperability, implying significant changes for software architecture as well.
EnWoT 2018 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
  • Real-time communication with physical objects
  • Web-based discovery, search, composition, and physical mashups
  • Self-adaptive and self-management approaches
  • 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
  • Liquid Software
  • Liquid User Experience
  • Liquid Web of Things
  • Security, access control, and sharing of physical things on the Web
  • Cloud platforms and services for the Web of Things
  • Application of Web tools and techniques in the physical world (REST, HTML5, social networks)

Submission Instructions
Authors are invited to submit two types of papers,
  • regular papers of 12 pages and
  • demo papers of 4 pages .
Submitted papers should conform to the Springer LNCS style and should describe, in English, original work that has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.
A single PDF versions of papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission page.
Post-workshop proceedings to appear in Springer's LNCS series.
Submissions will be judged on novelty, relevance, clarity of presentation, and correctness. Authors of accepted submissions are required to present their work.
