Panel Topic: Is IoT heading towards a Downhill on its Hype Cycle?

At the ComNet-IoT workshop, we plan to focus on the computation, communication and networking aspects for Internet of Things. The problems in IoT has been under active research for a few years and we have gradually become aware of the challenges thereof. The objective of this panel is to discuss whether IoT research has gone past the Hype Cycle. During the past five years of IoT research, what worked and what did not? What will be the shape of "Real-IoT" as a realistic vision of IoT? Is the technology mature enough to cope with the billions of sensors sensing our surroundings thereby generating a hitherto unforeseen volume of data which must be processed and analysed, in many cases with real-time constraints to gather knowledge and act accordingly? Is the Internet, as we see today, ready to handle the traffic? Are the networking protocols capable of connecting these billion sensors and computing devices? Is the computing infrastructure mature enough to handle the real "big data" generated by sensors? Do we really have to connect anything and every things to IoT as envisaged by the "Internet of Every Thing"? How do we address the security and privacy concerns of people who opt out of connecting their things due to these two issues? At this panel, we hope to discover where we stand in terms of coping with the IoT challenges leading towards real deployment scenarios - is it still distant future, or is it close to reality.

The panel will be conducted by Dr. Balamurali P from TCS Innovation Labs Bangalore. The respected panelists are:

Dr. Dilip Krishnaswamy, Senior Researcher, IBM Research Labs, Bangalore
Dr. Anwitaman Datta, Associate Professor, Nanyang Technological University , Singapore
Dr. B.S. Manoj, Associate Professor, Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology , Thiruvananthapuram
Dr. Maneesha Sudheer, Head of Amrita Centre for Wireless Networks and Applications, Amrita University

Author Instructions

Papers should be at most 6 pages, including title, abstract, figures and references, and not published or under review elsewhere. Papers should be prepared as per ACM conference proceedings format. Workshop papers will not appear in the main conference proceedings but are expected to form part of the ACM Digital Library (under discussion with ACM). Please submit your papers through EasyChair.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper. In addition, no-shows of accepted papers at the workshop will result in those papers NOT being included in the proceedings.
