ICTs evolution has led to wireless personal devices such as smart phones, personal computers and PDAs. These devices have in common that they are designed to operate over IP Networks. Hence, the number of devices that are connected to the Internet is growing exponentially. This has led to define a new concept of Internet, the commonly called Future Internet and Internet of Things (IoT).

The objective of IoT is the integration and unification of all communication systems located surrounds us. Thereby, the systems can get control and total access of the other systems for leading to provide ubiquitous communication and computing with the purpose of defining a new generation of services.

Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT) is an international workshop focused on the integration aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT). The emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) systems should provide transparent access to information and services through a seamless integration into the Internet. On the one hand, the so-called Web of Things aims for direct Web connectivity by pushing its technology down to devices. On the other hand, cost and energy requirements of embedded devices demand efficient protocols and communication patterns, which affect the application layer. This workshop provides a forum to elaborate on ideas and approaches to adapt, extend, or bridge the existing IoT building blocks, such as ETSI M2M, ZigBee, IPv6/6LoWPAN, RFID, and legacy networked embedded systems. In addition, the impact of the IoT on industry, business, and society, including security and privacy requirements, will be discussed.
