W3C announced today a Second Workshop on on the Web of Things, 3-5 June 2019, in Munich, Germany. The event is hosted by Siemens.

This workshop disseminates the findings of the W3C Web of Things Working Group based on its standardization work and discuss the way forward with a wider set of stakeholders. To unlock the potential of an open ecosystem and open markets, the workshop will discuss how to reduce fragmentation of the IoT landscape and the future direction of the open W3C WoT standardization. A focus is on exposing and consuming services across specific IoT technologies to enable new use cases, such as common monitoring and control of assets from multiple vendors, interconnecting different application domains, and building digital twins of physical devices.

The scope includes:

  • Cross-Domain Business Models, Use Cases and Scenarios:
    • Interoperability scenarios for consumer, industrial, environmental, energy management, healthcare, automotive and smart cities
    • Building a common IoT application ecosystem (tools, marketplaces, security, etc.)
    • Interworking across evolving IoT standards (e.g., OCF, OPC, LWM2M, OneM2M, etc.)
  • Standardization Needs:
    • Architecture
    • Applications
    • Security and privacy

For more information on the workshop, please see details and submission instructions. Expression of Interest and position statements are due by 23 April 2019.
