Call for Papers: IEEE Internet Computing Special Issue – Building Internet of Things Software –

As we equip people, places, and commodities with Internet-connected embedded devices that can sense information about the environment and subsequently take action, we will create the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT will improve society and quality of life, but making this vision a reality requires interdisciplinary efforts in a range of scientific domains. Specifically, enabling the design, implementation, validation, and real-world use of IoT software requires that we embrace diverse contributions in coherent and practical development frameworks, possibly based on current and future standards. 

This special issue seeks contributions about recent or ongoing research efforts, experience reports, and success stories in enabling an effective development of IoT software out of the individual building blocks available in different communities. Topics of interest include: 

– design and modeling approaches and methodologies for IoT software; 
– programming abstractions and languages expressly conceived for the IoT; 
– development techniques for IoT software appropriate for different hardware; 
– platforms, from tiny sensors to the enterprise level; 
– approaches for composing and interoperating existing IoT functionality; 
– cross-layer IoT software architectures; 
– standards for developing IoT software; and 
– real-world deployments and experiences in building IoT systems.

The 7th International Workshop on Middleware Tools, Services and Run-time Support for Sensor Networks (MidSens’12)

Co-Located with 13th International Conference on Middleware.

December 3-7, 2012, Montreal, Quebec, Canada



– Proceedings published by ACM and indexed in DBLP.

– Best paper invited for extended submission to the Springer Journal of Internet Services and Applications

– Other accepted papers invited for extended submission to the Hindawi International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks

The aim of MidSens is to stimulate novel research in middleware for sensor networks. The particular focus of MidSens’12 is the realization of multi-user, multi-purpose and federated sensing platforms that are capable of supporting next-generation application scenarios such as smart cities. Along with the core topic of middleware architectures, services and tool support, MidSens’12 will also seek papers describing novel programming languages, run-time support and experience reports.

The MidSens series has built a strong reputation for friendly and vibrant discussion and, through its affiliation with the world’s most influential middleware conference, enjoys attendance from some of the leading figures in international middleware research.
