esIoT-2013 - International Workshop on Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things


The second annual International Workshop on Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT-2013) will take place from July 3rd to the 5th in Taiwan at Asia University.


The event will operate in conjunction with the the IEEE 7th IMIS-2013 (International Conference on Innovative Mobile and Internet Services in Ubiquitous Computing) event and the best papers will be published in some of the following publications special issues:

  • Journal of Network and Computer Applications “Internet of Things: Challenges and Opportunities for the Future Internet” (Springer, IF=1.065)
  • Mobile Information Systems (IOS Press, IF=2.432)
  • Soft Computing Journal (Springer, IF=1.880) Special Issue on "Soft Computing for Security Services in Smart and Ubiquitous Environments"
  • Wireless Personal Communications (Springer, IF=0.458) Special Issue on "Mobility and Intelligence Management Technologies for Wireless and Mobile Networks"
  • Computer Systems Science & Engineering (CRL Publishing, IF=0.371)



Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT) is an international workshop focused on the integration aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT). The emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) systems should provide transparent access to information and services through a seamless integration into the Internet. On the one hand, the so-called Web of Things aims for direct Web connectivity by pushing its technology down to devices. On the other hand, cost and energy requirements of embedded devices demand efficient protocols and communication patterns, which affect the application layer. This workshop provides a forum to elaborate on ideas and approaches to adapt, extend, or bridge the existing IoT building blocks, such as ETSI M2M, ZigBee, IPv6/6LoWPAN, RFID, and legacy networked embedded systems. In addition, the impact of the IoT on industry, business, and society, including security and privacy requirements, will be discussed.


esIoT is co-sponsored by the IEEE ComSoc Internet of Things Emerging Technical Subcommittee and co-organized by IoT6 European Project .


Some of the tracks and topics for the workshop include:

  • Extending things to Internet through IPv6
  • Architectures and Middlewares for Internet of Things integration
  • End to End / Machine to Machine (M2M) protocols
  • Protocols for smart things: 6LoWPAN / DASH7 / ZigBee IP
  • Mobility management
  • Cloud computing and things internetworking
  • Standardization and regulatory issues

Web of Things

  • Lightweight RestFul / CoAP / Lightweight SOAP

  • Lightweight implementations of cryptographic stacks
  • End to end security capabilities from the things
  • Security for CoAP and ZigBee IP (DTLS, TLS etc..)
  • Bootstrapping techniques (PANA, EAP, HIP DEX …)

RFID and end-devices Identification

  • EPC to IPv6 approaches, and ONS and EPCIS for things
  • NFC integration in the Internet of Things
  • Human-device interactions based on RFID/NFC
  • Protocols and algorithms for the massive identification of things
