This phenomenon will make information  and data interchange vastly more complex. For example, the extensive number of internet data interchange  objects requires a new methodology for unique identifier management. Current technology cannot support this  complexity; there is a massive challenge in development, convergence and interoperability to create novel,  enabling technology forthwith.   In the context of the evolution of integrated information systems, the IoT vision will offer a new quality of  integration, which is no longer limited to information flows inside the digital world, but also directly links processes  and associated products in the physical world as well.   IoT technology development demands the transformation from ‘old fashioned’ digital objects to robust,  multifaceted intelligent objects; this is not merely the modification of existing technologies. For instance, IoT  device development is focused not only on hardware such as tags and readers, or the software to run the  network, but comprehensively touches every aspect of object presentation, such as how to design appropriate  hardware, software and protocol to describing object identification.   Obviously, achieving the goals of IoT research is a very broad undertaking. The IoT development agenda must  address multidisciplinary research integration. This is even more important because IoT technology will touch  global market products in a very short time. Industry and market are waiting for research and development of IoT  as part of a future assessment of the digital world. Above all, standardization of IoT protocol and research also will  require massive efforts in both academia and industry.         This workshop brings together multi-disciplinary research into envisioning IoT technology development. A strategic  research program of IoT has to be conducted with collaboration between industry and demand for user  applications on a global scale. In addition, the global scientific community intends to initiate a mutual discussion  leading to the future direction and approach for IoT applications to realize IoT technology.  Co-Chair: CLICK HERE! for paper submission...
