Abstract: The “internet of things” (IoT) concept is used to define or reference systems that rely on the autonomous communication of a group of physical objects. The applications areas of the IoT are numerous, including: smart homes, smart cities and industrial automation. IoT systems often provide great benefits to numerous industries and society as a whole. Many of the IoT systems and technologies are relatively novel. The aim of this paper is to provide the last and most innovative contributions concerning the Protocol, Technology, Application, Architecture & Issues of interest in IoT solutions that involve interconnected smart things that interoperate with the objective of solving problems, provide functionality or optimize tasks. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): • Smart things network and communication: architectures, services and protocols. • Smart things: privacy, security and identification. • Internet of Things systems and applications. • User-centric solutions to define IoT collaborative process. • Innovative IoT Solutions for handicapped persons. • Smart things and RFID/NFC communications. • Intelligent systems based on connected vehicles. • Smart things networks for real world data management. • Practical experiences in Smart cities, large-scale IoT systems. • Opportunistic IoT, based on opportunistic networking techniques.
