This volume contains the proceedings of the Internet of Things (IOT) Conference 2008, the first international conference of its kind. The conference took place in Zurich, Switzerland, March 26–28, 2008. The term ‘Internet of Things’ has come to describe a number of technologies and research disciplines that enable the Internet to reach out into the real world of physical objects. Technologies such as RFID, short-range wireless communications, real-time localization, and sensor networks are becoming increasingly common, bringing the ‘Internet of Things’ into industrial, commercial, and domestic use. IOT 2008 brought together leading researchers and practitioners, from both academia and industry, to facilitate the sharing of ideas, applications, and research results.
