Welcome Message

The Internet-of-Things (IoT) brings promising opportunities and challenges. It attracts great attentions, and has important economic and social values. IoT will play a key role in the next generation of information, network, and communication systems. Future IoT may bring us an era of “harmony of man with nature”, which means harmony fusion of Physical-space, Cyber-space, and Social-space. We will witness emancipation not only from onerous labour works brought by machine-human interface, but also from the spatial-temporal constrains in Physical-space, and will achieve substantial benefits from IT development.

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings-2017) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-the-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the IoT, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.
