      The emerging paradigm of Internet of Things (IoT) has recently become increasingly important and the US National Intelligence Council (NIT) has included it in the list of six most Disruptive Civil Technologies. IoT represents a global infrastructure of networked physical things and objects which pervasively surround us to provide a variety of services that may significantly enhance the quality of our daily lives, including smart environments (buildings, cities, etc.), assisted living, enhanced medical processes, improved manufacturing, industrial control, automated business processes, intelligent transportation, etc.

      Major enabling technologies for IoT include identification and tracking technologies such as Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) technologies, wireless sensors and actuators, unique addressing schemes, novel communication protocols, Industry Control Systems (ICS), Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), industry internet, etc. Though these technologies are fundamental to IoT, additional technologies are needed to widely deploy IoT systems. For example, scalability is still a concern in IoT to support globalized identification and management of the vast number of things. Semantic computing, service technologies, peer-to-peer algorithms, etc., may be enhanced to potentially provide globalized discovery and management capabilities for IoT. Research in global-scale intelligent and autonomous composition and cooperation of a large number of widely distributed things is needed to enable IoT systems to achieve challenging tasks and adapt to environmental changes. In the IoT world, information will flow through everyday and everywhere objects, which may pose severe security risks. Also, with the increasing reliance on the information carried by these small objects to provide services, fabrication and malicious manipulation of information can create widespread threats. Thus, security, dependability, and trustworthiness are major challenges in IoT systems. There are many other issues that still need to be explored to effectively deploy resilient IoT systems.

      The ADROIT workshop intends to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their findings and exchange ideas to facilitate the development of IoT systems. A major focus of the workshop is on secure and dependable IoT systems. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-         IoT, ICS, CPS, industry internet, and associated technologies;

-         Architecture and framework for robust management of things in IoT systems;

-         Autonomous intelligence for IoT, ICS, CPS, and industry internet;

-         New technologies, enhanced semantic and service computing paradigms for smart specification, composition and execution of IoT, industrial control, and CPS;

-         Dependability assurance techniques for IoT, ICS, CPS, and industry internet;

-         Cyber security for IoT, ICS, CPS, and industry internet, such as security for embedded software, security for industrial control systems, new access control paradigms, malware analysis, and abnormal event detection;

-         Security for low power and industrial networks, such as deep packet inspection, secure communication protocols, security analysis for low power and industrial network protocols, industrial network firewalls, industrial network and field bus security;

-         New challenges and technologies for critical IoT, ICS, CPS, and industry internet.
