These days, it’s hard to escape the Internet. It seems like everything from ones coffee machine to your eyeglases are connected to the Web. While there’s been a lot of discussion about whether the Internet makes us dumb, we will explore how companies and municipalities deploying so-called smart technologies can improve our lives rather than turn us into bleary-eyed dummies. The use of machine-to-machine (M2M) technology is bringing “The Internet of Things” alive. But while M2M may only conjure up thoughts of buzzing servers in a cavernous room, it has many real-world applications that affect your everyday life, from the connected home to the connected city. “The Internet of Things” includes everything from smartphone apps that control your home’s lights and temperature from afar to real-time analytics that help ease traffic congestion and city parking woes, etc.

In one of the surveys conducted, 85 percent of IT decision makers (ITDMs) think that M2M is a natural technological evolution and will advance the “consumerization of IT” trend. Eighty-two percent think that M2M interaction enables businesses to respond to real-world events and 89 percent think the availability of LTE (Long term evolution) and 4G will be crucial to M2M growth. Sixty-five percent of ITDMs think increased workforce mobility is the biggest opportunity for M2M, while another 65 percent think the major challenge in M2M is managing and analyzing the real-time data. Soon, people will interact with devices that in turn interact with data to deliver personalized products and services directly to the customer in real time. By year’s end, it is estimated that, mobile devices will outnumber the human population, data volume will reach 4 billion terabytes, and 90 percent of consumer-connected devices will have access to some personal cloud. It is also estimated by the Gartner’s report, that by the end of 2020, there will be 24 billion connected devices and by 2015, 35 percent of mid- to-large organizations will adopt in-memory computing.

All India Seminar on Internet of Things is one of the most comprehensive IoT event – with over 350 attendees and many exhibitors. With a focus on monetizing the IoT revolution through bringing together ecosystem wide attendees, stakeholders and investors. 2014 was an important year for IoT with huge opportunities of this technologyfirmlybeingrealized.LargeGlobalgiantsintheirreport predictsthat69% of consumers plan to buy an in-home device by 2019, reaffirming that consumer adoptionofconnectedtechnologyisontherise.In2015, thetremendousexcitement around IoT is now bearing fruit in terms of concrete products and services. Now is the time to bring together the entire ecosystem in order to assess the commercial opportunities, to highlight the key challenges hindering IoT and to assess the range of solutions available to create a sustainable future for IoT.

Pervasive connectivity, smart devices and demand for data testify to an Internet of Things that will continue to grow by leaps and bounds. Computing power is dropping in price while new sensors are being developed and incorporated into everyday objects, and as people buy into Internet of Things technology, economies of scale lend themselves to the creation of ever more data-centric businesses. Instrumenting and connecting devices has massive potential to deliver value, but there is need for a coordinated effort when rolling out the next generation of self-reporting paradigms. TheAllIndiaSeminar ontheInternetofThings-(AIS-IoT2015),thepremierforumfor such efforts, to share, discuss and witness cutting edge research in all areas of development for the Internet of Things.

AIS-IoT 2015 is seeking original, high impact research papers on all topics related to the development of the Internet of Things. Papers are selected on the basis of novelty, technical merit, presentation effectiveness and impact of results. Accepted papers will be published in IEI All India Seminar Proceedings.

  • Mobile IoT: Novel applications of smartphone technology for generating and consuming big data. Examples include interesting new applications of on-board sensors, making use of crowd sourced data, promoting e-commerce or enabling B2B, B2C and C2C connectedness.
  • IoT device or circuit design: novel hardware that enables field intelligence and data generation, innovative concepts that enable pervasive sensing.
  • IoT applications and services: embedded field intelligence applications that challenge the state of the art in fields such as agriculture, automotive, civil & industrial Infrastructure monitoring, health care and retailing.
  • Architecture and systems design: reliability, sustainability, scalability, profitability and scope for interoperability of an IoT ecosystem; novel business models and services enabled by IoT.
  • Cloud computing and semantic web technologies: data security, storage and access, communication protocols, linked data and web semantics for interoperability among users and devices.
  • Interface and control systems: adaptive user interface design, data-informed actuation, and the interplay between the two
  • IoT analytics: innovative algorithms and data analysis techniques for extracting meaning and value from the Internet of Things

IoT solution challenge

A key aspect of this challenge is sharing knowledge with the community and therefore, we want participants to document and discuss their experience when building their IoT solution. So we expect them demonstrate about things like selection process for your hardware, architecture decisions.

The solutions will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Innovation of the solution and applicability to the application domain
  • Completeness of solution
  • Use of open standards and open source technology
  • Amount of community discussion from the participants when they built their solution


There are various hotels available for accommodation. Participants are requested to book on their own or ask for Assistance to the organizing secretary


The Institution of Engineers (India) or IEI is the largest multidisciplinary professional body that encompasses 15 engineering disciplines and gives engineers a global platform from which to share professional interest. IEI has membership strength of more than 0.7 million. Established in 1920, with its headquarters at 8 Gokhale Road, Kolkata – 700020, IEI has served the engineering fraternity for over nine decades. In this period of time it has been inextricably linked with the history of modern-day engineering.

In 1935, IEI was incorporated by Royal Charter and remains the only professional body in India to be accorded this honour. Today, its quest for professional excellence has given it a place of pride in almost every prestigious and relevant organization across the globe. IEI functions among professional engineers, academicians and research workers. It provides a vast array of technical, professional and supporting services to the Government, Industries, Academia and the Engineering fraternity, operating from 105 Centres located across the country. The Institution has established R&D centres at various locations in the country and also provides grant-in-aid to its members to conduct research and development on engineering subjects.

IEI conducts Section A & B Examinations in different Engineering disciplines, the successful completion of which is recognized as equivalent to Degree in appropriate field of Engineering of recognized Universities of India by the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India. Every year as many as 90000 candidates appear for these exams. For details, please see:

The Gujarat State Centre

The Institution of Engineers (India) Bombay State Centre opened a Local Centre at Ahmedabad in the year 1959 after which this was established as Gujarat State in the year1960. This Centre is one of the most vibrant State centres of IEI. The foundation stone of building was laid by Hon’ble Governor of Gujarat K. K. Vishwanathan & the inauguration of the building was done by Shri Babubhai Jashbhai Patel, the then Chief Minister, Govt. of Gujarat. State Centre building bears the name of the building as ‘Bhaikaka Bhavan”, after the eminent engineer of Gujarat Shri Bhailalbhai Patel.
