Social Internet
of Things

When Things get smart, the Internet of Things gets Social!

The Internet of Things promises to be a source of great benefits to our lives but it definitely will be a source of difficulty for designers of telecommunication networks and applications unless appropriate new communication paradigms are identified. We strongly believe that what will definitely meet the needs of users, designers, and developers is a social approach to the Internet of Things.
The objectives being pursued by the Social Internet of Things (SIoT) paradigm are clear: to keep separate the two levels of people and things; to allow objects to have their own social networks; to allow humans to impose rules to protect their privacy and only access the result of autonomous inter-object interactions occurring on the objects’ social network.
In our vision smart objects (even though extremely intelligent) will not make a difference, but social objects will make it!

Objective of this website is to promote the circulation of ideas and concepts that focus on the SIoT paradigm. As such, it is open to scientific and nonscientific contributions (what matters is creativity) in which SIoT technical solutions and scenarios are addressed.
