Personal and Ubiquitous Computing


The first part of this issue features four papers that discuss advanced management techniques for Smart Objects. The so-called Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the cornerstones of the Future Internet. One illustrative example of the relevance of IoT in future network development is its growing adoption within the smart city paradigm, as a means to provide enhanced citizen services. In this sense, basic IoT technology is no longer at the purely academic research level, but is starting to be integrated to the the fabric of our daily activities.
