Goals and Topics
We are looking for contributions that present new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss strategies for resolving open problems spanning all aspects of Digital Object Memories in the Internet of Things. The focus will cover both the system-level solutions like software/hardware architectures as well as social, privacy, and legal implications of IoT systems. Furthermore, application-oriented demos and prototypes are also highly encouraged.
Suggested topics that could be discussed at DOMe-IoT include (but are not limited to):
- Objects and Agency: Things will begin to make suggestions and propositions to human users. Depending upon their sophistication these ‘commands’ imply that an object may have a level of agency.
- Architectures: Infrastructures for the centralized or distributed capturing, organizing, storing, and exploiting of object-related information, directly on the physical object itself or based on some remote infrastructure.
- Memory Content Representation and Modeling: Formats for memory content items, discussion of standards and best-practice knowledge concerning the representation of object-related knowledge.
- Memory Creation: Technologies and concepts for the manual, semi-automatic, or automatic creation of whole memories or single memory entries.
- Data Mining: Information stored in a digital object memory might be analyzed in order to discover typical usage patterns or anomalies.
- User Interfaces: How to structure, relate, prepare, and explain the wide variety of diverse data that might be contained in the memory due to its open nature.
- Applications: Novel application scenarios of digital object memories for IoT and existing prototypes.
- Privacy and Legal Aspects: Who “owns” the data stored in memory of an IoT, who can access/delete/correct it? How long must/should memory content be stored, and how can trust be established for the object memory?
- Social Implications: Not only humans now can tell their personal story, but every object potentially allows us to investigate its history and understand how our world is connected.
DOMe-IoT 2012 is held at Pittsburgh, PA, USA on September 8th, 2012 in conjunction with Ubicomp 2012.
