The Internet, network of networks, over the years, provided the core backbone for connectivity. The Internet has been a revolutionary technology to an extent that any devices ”things” can be connected and be accessible and controlled from any corners of the world. This has given rise to the Internet of Things (IoT). The mission is to enable communication, and computation enabled devices on different networks to be able talk to each other using a common protocol. This will allow new and smart devices to be added to the Internet infrastructure.

There are several challenges in terms of turning the vision of IoT into reality. This includes architecture, communication, services, computational intelligence, storage, governance apart from core areas of sensor development and material engineering. This conference brings together researchers from diversely cross-disciplinary areas to address challenges in the emerging discipline. Co-located with 2017 IoT Week organized by the IoT Forum, GIoTS-2017 discusses the recent advances in Internet of Things and the feasibility of extending IoT, including wireless sensor network technology, to become truly ubiquitous with new Cloud computing technologies, Big data analysis, citizen engagement and Governance.


This conference aims to encourage innovative cross-domain studies that address the challenges of IoT, including emerging and disruptive technologies, and prospective analysis.
