Middleware for the Internet of Things

Journal of Internet Services and Applications welcomes submissions to the thematic series on 'Middleware for the Internet of Things'.

The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm enables interconnections and information exchange between physical and digital objects. IoT has been receiving attention from the research community and industry, due to its potential in changing the world, by providing a wide range of applications that touches several facets of our daily lives. Although much progress has been made at the system and sensing level, there are several challenges to realize the vision of the Internet of Things, in particular related to the support of applications development. Middleware platforms can act as a key enabler of IoT by providing an infrastructure with a set of innovative services to seamlessly support the development of IoT applications.

This JISA thematic series provides a forum for describing innovative contributions and/or ground-breaking results on middleware infrastructure, abstractions and services for enabling the Internet of Things (IoT).

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Middleware infrastructure for IoT platforms
  • Cloud Middleware for IoT
  • Models and middleware to provide IoT services to context-aware applications
  • Middleware services for IoT
  • Complex Event processing for IoT
  • Composition and interoperability of IoT services and applications
  • Distribution of IoT services among mobile devices, edge devices, sensors and computers in the cloud
  • Data Management, Discovery, and Privacy for IoT
  • Services on the Cloud for IoT
  • Testbeds for IoT applications
  • Experiences of application development with middleware for IoT
  • Programming models for IoT applications
