Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 1st International Workshop on the Web of Things for Humans (WOT4H 2020) will be held on 9 June 2020, in Helsinki, Finland. WoT4H is a forum for academics, industrial researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss challenges and advances in the Internet of Things and Web of Things. This forum will be particularly focused on “The Web of Things for Humans”, improving the interoperability and adaptation of smart devices to Humans. More information about the workshop can be found at the following link: http://wot4h.spilab.es

A selection of papers submitted to WoT4H 2020 will be invited for a possible extension to be published in the journal Computers in the Special Issue “Web of Things for Humans (WoT4H)”. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with at least a 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo the standard peer-review procedure of the journal. Accepted papers will be published in open-access format in Computers and collected together in this Special Issue website. There are no page limitations for this journal.

We are also inviting original research work covering novel theories, innovative methods, and meaningful applications that can potentially lead to significant advances in Internet of Things and Web of Things. The main topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Integrating the Web of Things
    • Linked open data
    • Internet of services
    • Distributed mobile systems
  • Protocols and standardization attempts
  • Web of Things for humans
    • Integration with social networks
    • Context-awareness
    • (Mobile) Crowdsensing
  • WoT composition and physical mashup
  • Planning and artificial intelligence in WoT
  • WoT and big data
    • New semantic technologies
    • Data collection
    • Data fusion
    • Activity recognition
  • Proactive devices
    • Decision-making
    • Self-adaptative techniques
  • Web assembly
  • Edge and fog computing for the WoT
  • Trust, security, and privacy for IoT
    • MyData
  • Applications and experiences
    • Smart cities
    • E-healthcare
    • Smart buildings
    • Human mobility
    • Co-creation and open participation

A general problem in large cities is mobility. Every day, there are incidents (accidents, construction, or meteorological events) that increase the duration of the journeys in a city and exert negative effects on the lives of citizens. A particular case of this situation is communications with airports. Shuttles are a type of private transport service that operates in airports. The number of passengers carried by shuttles is small. Moreover, shuttles transport passengers to their final destinations and their prices are more competitive than those other private services. However, shuttle services have a limitation with respect to their routes due to the many different destinations of passengers. For this reason, it is important to be able to calculate the best route to optimize the journey. This work presents an Android application that implements a value-added service to plan the route of a shuttle and manage its service (passengers, journeys, routes, etc.). This application combines information from different sources, such as geolocation information from the shuttle driver’s mobile phone, information on the passengers, and results obtained from the service offered by MapBox to calculate the optimized route between several destinations.
