Internet of Things promises to be an innovative scenario in which the user experience will be enriched by new cyber-physical services and content, shared by multiple actors (things, places, people) with an higher frequency and quality of the current ones. The countless challenges and opportunities that the development of such an ecosystem entails require a marked intervention on the current Internet architectural frameworks and models, primarily as regards the management function.

Pointing in this direction, in this seminar we survey and compare the most relevant autonomic and cognitive architectures for the Internet of Things.


 Giancarlo Fortino is currently Associate Professor of Computer Engineering (since 2006) at the Dept. of Informatics, Modeling, Electronics and Systems (DIMES) of the University of Calabria (Unical), Rende (CS), Italy. He has a Ph. D. degree and Laurea (MSc+BSc) degree in Computer Engineering from Unical. He holds the Italian Scientific National Habilitation for Full Professorship and is High-end Foreign Expert of China and Adjunct Professor at the Wuhan University of Technology, China. He has been also Visiting Researcher and Professor at the International Computer Science Institute (Berkeley, USA) and at the Queensland University of Technology (Australia), respectively. His main research interests include agent-based computing, wireless sensor networks, pervasive and cloud computing, multimedia networks and Internet of Things technology. He participated to many local, national and international research projects and currently is the co-technical coordinator of the EU-funded H2020 INTER-IoT project He authored over 250 publications in journals, conferences and books. He chaired more the 40 Int'l conferences/workshops as co-chair, organized more than 20 special issues in well-known Int'l Journals, and participated in the TPC of over 250 conferences.
