The Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Wireless Networks and Mobile Communications (WINCOM 2017) has been working with the IEEE IoT Summit within the framework of the IEEE International IoT Summit series – on holding and organizing a IoT Summit in Rabat, Morocco ; and is today proud to announce its co-location with WINCOM 2017.

The Internet of Thing (IoT) refers to the connection of devices (other than typical fare such as computers and smartphones). The number of connected devices will reach a staggering about 50 billion in 2020. The job market for the internet of thing is following this trend and is expected to reach about 5 million in the next few years. At the same time, the incredible variety of available software and hardware currently on the market and the very fast pace of further development makes it quite challenging to search and teaching this topic.

This meeting on Internet of Things SUMMIT focuses on discovering and explaining, based on the recent research and experiments, the architectures & protocols for efficient interconnection of things, IoT infrastructure deployment, IoT applications, IoT services (real-time) and the standard development.

The international experts on IoT have been invited and attracted to share their state-of-the-art knowledge with the emerging IoT community in Morocco (

David W. KravitzVice President – Crypto Systems Research, DarkMatter, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Talk title: Access-Controlled IoT and Human Interactivity: Reputation, Transactions and Blockchain


Talk abstract:As indicated in the IEEE Cyber Security document “Building Code for the Internet of Things”: “Even in the case where isolation boundaries are well-defined, complete, and sufficient to protect a system or component against compromise, interacting IoT systems might require well-defined ways of adjusting this isolation to access parts of another system (for example, in the case of a smart cities subsystem compensating for another during a natural disaster). The decision process governing this adjustment of the isolation boundary needs to be able to gauge the context of the situation and the trustworthiness of the entities being considered for inclusion inside the boundary.” As elements of a methodology to securely and efficiently instantiate this decision process while resisting adversarial traffic analysis and undetected interference, this talk will address how to set up dedicated maintainable “communication lines” and utilize permissioned blockchains in order to establish and update the reputation of devices relative to their certified attributes and the tasks they are suitably equipped to engage in. The system inherits the desired transaction unlinkability property from the US Department of Transportation- piloted Security Credential Management System PoC for V2V/V2X communications, and cryptographically binds on-chain and off-chain operations with respect to authentication, authorization and preservation of confidentiality.

Biography: Dr. David W. Kravitz is VP of Crypto Systems Research at DarkMatter, and heads DarkMatter’s blockchain team that is focused on providing an IoT-compatible access-controlled transaction platform. His extensive information security experience spans a wide range of application areas, including voice- and data- critical infrastructure, digital rights management, payments, smart grid, IoT, and high-value assets transfer. He began his career at the National Security Agency, where as Senior Technical Advisor he “combined his exceptional skills in protocol and algorithm design with his evaluation capabilities to profoundly enhance the security posture of communications,” as stated in the Certificate of Achievement he was awarded by the Director of NSA. He has also held senior positions at Sandia National Laboratories, CertCo/Bankers Trust Electronic Commerce, Digital Video Express, Wave Systems Corp., Motorola Labs, Certicom Research/BlackBerry, and IBM Research. He was the principal architect of the Membership Services identity management framework of the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric project for permissioned blockchain, and invented the Digital Signature Algorithm of the FIPS 186 Digital Signature Standard, the elliptic curve variant of which, ECDSA, underlies Bitcoin and Ethereum. He serves as a Technical Advisor for CENTRI, and holds a Ph.D. and Masters in Electrical Engineering – Systems from University of Southern California, a Masters in Mathematical Sciences from Johns Hopkins University, and a Bachelors in Mathematics from Rutgers University.

Gopi Krishna S GargeFellow, IPv6 Forum and Director, SmartLancs Ltd, UK

Talk title:Industrial Internet and the need for guarantees (6TiSCH)


Abstract: In the context of IoT, Industry 4.0 has to deal with operational technologies (OT) that would generate large amounts of digital data, leading to a convergence of the traditional IT with the emerging OT. In the specific context of industrial process control, there are tight performance requirements; performance guarantees are necessary. Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are deployed for industrial process control and the traditional mac layer (IEEE 802.15.4) cannot provide a deterministic performance. Determinism can be achieved with different methods, each having different capabilities. Deterministic networking solutions require more than existing QoS mechanisms. Time slotted channel hopping (TSCH) is one technique used in the MAC layer. In the case of IPv6 enabled WSNs, both application data and network functions such as routing use the same bandwidth; each of them has a different performance requirement. Application data requires a deterministic performance, while allowing other data to be sent as best effort. 6TiSCH is the effort for combining best-effort and time-sensitive IPv6 traffic over TSCH. The talk addresses the diversity of these needs and how 6TiSCH attempts to realise them. It also provides a brief update of the status of the developments in the IETF 6TiSCH WG.

He has over two decades of experience in data networking. His primary involvement was with NRENs in Asia, specifically with setting up research test beds for networking. His current interests lie at the edge of the network, focusing on edge network connectivity, mobile edge computing and end-to-end QoS. He is a member of the IEEE P.1931.1 WG.

Dave RaggettIs one of the Web pioneers, Member of W3C team and has been involved with the development of Web standards since the early nineties, UK

Talk title: Using the Web to unlock the IoT for open markets of services


Synopsis: The Web of Things is a W3C framework for open markets of services based upon connected devices with sensors and actuators. Such devices vary considerably in their capabilities and communication technologies. This makes it challenging to create services involving devices from different vendors and using different standards. The Web of Things makes this very much easier by allowing applications to interact with software objects that act as proxies for physical or abstract entities. Each thing is described, in a programming language neutral way, as an object with properties, actions and events, together with additional metadata, including links to semantic models. Applications can produce things for consumption by other applications. Such consumers may reside on the same device, gateway or cloud platform, or on other such systems, with user interfaces in web pages running on web browsers, or in native applications, e.g. on smart phones and tablets. To enable open markets of services, things need to be discoverable and accessible on open platforms. In many cases devices will be hidden behind firewalls. In some cases, devices could supply things directly to open Internet platforms running outside of the firewall. In other cases, a gateway is needed. Applications installed on the gateway abstract devices as things and supply these things to external open Internet platforms. Gateways can provide support for a broad range of device protocols, e.g. CoAP, Bluetooth, Zigbee, MQTT, LPWAN, etc. Semantic models are needed to support discovery, composition and adaptation to variations in capabilities across different models of devices, and across devices from different manufacturers. This calls for descriptive rather than prescriptive models of capabilities.

Biography: Dr. Dave Raggett is one of the Web pioneers, and has been involved with the development of Web standards since the early nineties. He helped to launch standards work on HTML, HTTP and many other Web technologies. He has an active interest in open source, and is the W3C champion for the Web of Things and the W3C lead for the Data Activity. He was awarded his doctorate at the University of Oxford, and is a member of the W3C staff, and attached to the W3C European office hosted by ERCIM in Sophia Antipolis, France.
