The 7th conference on Internet of Things and Smart Spaces ruSMART 2014

August 28, 2014. St.-Petersburg, Russia


About the Conference

Nowadays we see strong demand for development of robust infrastructure for retrieving, storing and processing information of various types, which is obtained from and delivered to the broad spectrum of different user devices. This is especially critical when the volume of information increases as rapidly as its value. As a consequence the methods and solutions for efficient processing, reusing and reasoning over user's data has gained a lot of attention in the last years and became the key aspect of application design. Further developments in this field creates a lot of opportunities to apply new business models and is a key enabler for the concept of pro-active service.

The wireless solutions have moved beyond their traditional areas of application and today we can talk about a space where users can access a number of wireless technologies and interact with various services. Also the Internet of Things disrupts limitations of Internet that use to based on human-entered data. New technologies for short-range and low-power wireless communications, real-time localization and sensor networks allow computers to perceive the world. Support of the future commercial success of IoT solutions require efficient and scalable infrastructures for managing, sharing and processing collected data. We can see that reseach on interlinking of the physical and cyber worlds is becoming more and more relevant. This conference is targeted to bring together top specialist in the field to discuss ongoing studies and obtained results.

Similarly, existent and future services cover the wide range of user demands, ranging from searching and browsing contents to interactive context and location aware solution that explore advanced multimedia capabilities of the surrounding devices. These layers form a smart environment that harmonizes a number of technologies and provides the best possible personalized user experience. Also it helps to address a number of challenges of the modern society, starting from efficient indoor use of energy and to smart logistics and broad-scope deployment of the green principles and technologies. This conference will explore and explain the scope and challenges of smart space technologies and solutions. In this regard, the conference aims to bring together research professionals from diverse fields including but not limited to wireless communication, ubiquitous networks, software development, multimedia, services, and business in both academia and industry. Conference proceedings will be published in LNCS, Springer (confirmed) and indexed by relevant databases.

Special focus of this conference is on development of Smart-M3 platform and applications on top of it. The conference is also a traditional meeting point for M3 and FRUCT community members.

The ruSMART 2014 will be held in St. Petersburg, Russia - the meeting point of East and West. Through its stunning architecture and wonderful art galleries and museums, among a number of other attractions, the wealth of history of East and West can be seen and felt in this beautiful city.

Selected authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to be published in a special issue of a journal Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220; CODEN: SENSC9) - Impact Factor: 1.821 (2009); 5-Year Impact Factor: 1.903 (2009)

Title: Smart processing of disruptively big data in the Internet of Things

Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the pillars of Future Internet and will connect billions of "things", where things include computers, smartphones, sensors, objects from everyday life with embedded computational and communication capabilities and the list goes on and on. Each of those things will have their physical and/or virtual identity, attributes, intelligent interfaces, componentised functionality and standardised communication protocols. The Internet of Things will be generating massive amounts of data that will have to be stored, validated, processed and communicated to relevant services, applications and systems. This talk focuses on the challenges of dealing with the IoT, disruptively big data it generates, with discovery of things along with relevant and useful data for various services and applications, representing semantics and enriching IoT data with semantics, transforming IoT data into context and integrating these into knowledge. The talk will also present various CSIRO projects in IoT, including EU FP7 OpenIoT which developed open source flexible sensor-based system middleware platform. OpenIoT brings together sensing and cloud computing and is an efficient platform for handling big IoT data.
