Proceedings of 2017 Global IoT Summit

The prodceedings of the 2017 Global IoT Summit is now online. You can check out the ENTROPY partners’ paper entitled “Data Aggregation, Fusion and Recommendations for Strengthening Citizens Energy-aware Behavioural Profiles” at IEEEXplore (



In this paper, ENTROPY platform, an IT ecosystem for supporting energy efficiency in buildings through behavioural change of the occupants is provided. The ENTROPY platform targets at providing a set of mechanisms for accelerating the adoption of energy efficient practices through the increase of the energy awareness and energy saving potential of the occupants. The platform takes advantage of novel sensor networking technologies for supporting efficient sensor data aggregation mechanisms, semantic web technologies for unified data representation, machine learning mechanisms for getting insights from the available data and recommendation mechanisms for providing personalised content to end users. These technologies are combined and provided through an integrated platform, targeting at leading to occupants’ behavioural change with regards to their energy consumption profiles

Entropy Serious Game

The ENTROPY Serious Game is now available. In the ENTROPY Treasure Hunt you can collect clues and answer questions to win! We have completed the development of the serious game and now are ready for beta testing in our pilots. With augmented reality features, the players will be able to interact with their environment and complete tasks based on real time sensor measurements.

Global IoT Summit (GIoTS-2017)

The IEEE-ComSoc-endorsed Global IoT Summit (GIoTS) will be collocated with the IoT Week 2017 at the International Conference Centre in Geneva, bringing together the research and industry communities active in the IoT domain. The GIoTS will focus on selecting and presenting scientific papers on IoT to be published in the IEEE Xplore.

There are several challenges in terms of turning the vision of IoT into reality. This includes architecture, communication, services, computational intelligence, storage, governance apart from core areas of sensor development and material engineering. This conference brings together researchers from diversely cross-disciplinary areas to address challenges in the emerging discipline. Co-located with 2017 IoT Week organized by the IoT Forum, GIoTS-2017 discusses the breaking advances in Internet of Things and the feasibility of extending IoT, including wireless sensor network technology, to become truly ubiquitous with new cloud and edge computing technologies, big data analysis, citizen engagement, privacy and cybersecurity, and governance.

The 2017 Global IoT Summit (GIoTS) seeks contributions on how to address these challenges and to support IoT technologies and applications for the benefit of society and industry. The conference welcome cross-domain studies that address the challenges of IoT, including emerging and disruptive technologies, and prospective analysis.

Original papers are solicited in, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • IoT Enabling Technologies
  • IoT Security and Privacy
  • IoT Applications, Services and Real Implementations
  • IoT Experimental Results and Deployment Scenarios
  • IoT Interoperability, Frameworks and Architectures
  • IoT Societal Impacts
  • IoT Business Models and Impact on the Industry
  • IoT Multimedia

The Global Internet of Things Summit (GIoTS 2017) solicits submissions.

  • Full papers describing original research. Suggested size is four pages; papers up to six pages will be accepted. Papers will be fully peer reviewed. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Submission Guidelines 

  • All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Formatting Guidelines. Please use either this Word Template or this LaTeX package. Make sure that you use US letter page format.
  • IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property seriously. Accordingly, all submissions will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck. By submitting your work, you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work. For more information please visit:

Navacchio Techno Park ( is located in the municipality of Cascina, just 10 kilometers away from Pisa. Born in 2000, thanks to a massive project of urban requalification, NTP is now a modern technological citadel that covers an area of 18.000 square meters including 4 large buildings, an Incubator (, a FabLab and a Coworking space. Approximately 500 people work in the 60 high-tech companies (ICT, Energy and Environment, Microelectronics and Robotics) now present in the techno park.


NTP is partner of the Regional Pole for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Innovation (300 companies – and of the Regional Innovation Pole for ICT and Robotics (700 companies – Moreover, it is part of APSTI (Italian Association of Scientific and Techno Parks –, which includes 25 Parks and it is associated to IASP, the International Association of Science Parks and Areas of Innovations (


NTP has always been strongly committed in energy saving issues. It was chosen as one of the three pilots to be involved as test-bed and validation sites for the innovative energy efficient solutions (i.e. serious games and personalized applications) which will be implemented within ENTROPY. Therefore, the Park will be actively engaged in increasing end-users’ awareness and motivating/modeling behavioral changes to achieve energy consumption savings in their daily activities and adopt energy efficient lifestyles.
