Digital Tools and Uses - Congress
The first international Digital Tools & Uses Congress is a multidisciplinary conference devoted to study the uses and development of digital tools. It aims at assembling five interrelated symposia: 1) Web Studies, 2) Challenges of IoT, 3) Recommender systems, 4) Archives and social networks, and 5) Digital Frontiers. The intention of this consortium is to approach a common object of study from different perspectives in order to enrich the discussion and collaboration between participants.

Internet Of Things Challenges

3rd edition of the international conference on IoT : Techniques, uses, ethics

Track chairs:
• Mehdi Ammi (Université de Paris Sud, France)
• Samuel Szoniecky (Université Paris 8, France)

Short description

This conference will examine the problems of the IoT along three axis complementary technique, use and ethics. The techniques used to produce artifacts (physical objects, infrastructures), programs (algorithmics, software) and data (Big Data, linked data, metadata, ontologies) are the subject of multiple innovations rich and stimulating. Alongside this technological boom, the uses of IoT colonize new fields of application in the areas of transport, administration, housing, maintenance, health, sports, well-being.. The privileged interface with the digital ecosystems are now at the heart of social exchanges, the IdO develops a power to act with both good and bad consequences, makes it difficult to appreciate a fair activity.

Call for papers

Scientists, industrialists and students are invited to reflect on the new challenges that IoT presents by demonstrating how these emerging technologies develop new uses that condition human relationships with digital and physical ecosystems and challenge ethical boundaries. These reflections will develop original views both on the techniques put in place and on their impacts on the process in change of our society. The main technological issues will concern sensors, embedded electronics, communication protocols and data security in a major strategic situation. Usage questions will focus on the human factors of human-machine interactions and the positioning of future users at the very heart of the design process of connected objects. Particular attention will be paid to proposals concerning methods of design : design, development, debugging and evaluation of connected objects and services. Ethical issues will concern the changes in the economy and the society, individual freedoms, but also research and creativity.


ACM will publish the proceedings of the Digital Tools & Uses Congress in the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series (ISBN 978-1-4503-6451-5).

A selection of best papers will be invited to publish extended versions in form of book chapters under the series Digital Tools & Uses at ISTE & Wiley (indexed by Wiley Online Library).

Accepted authors will be sent the ACM rights management form and complete instructions.

After completing their rights management form, authors will be emailed the correct rights text and bibliographic strip to place within their paper. Please inform authors that they must enter the text into their paper.

Submission Types

• Short and Long Papers
• Workshop

Submission Format

Please use the ACM Master Template to prepare your proposal :

Important: At this first step you are required to submit as anonymous author for peer-reviewing. That is, leave in blank the Author and Affiliation text of the template. If your proposal is accepted, you will then prepare a final version with your full name and contact details.

Submission System

Please send your proposals via SciencesConf :

Review Process

All submissions will follow a blind peer-review process. At least two different members of the scientific committee will review each paper. The selection criteria is based on originality, accordance to the theme and topics, scientific/technical contribution, and clarity of presentation.

Authors will receive notification of acceptance on May 18th 2018. If your paper is accepted you will be solicited to prepare the camera-ready version for its publication.
