                Report from the Internet of Things (IoT)
            Semantic Interoperability (IOTSI) Workshop 2016

Abstract

   This document provides a summary of the "Workshop on Internet of
   Things (IoT) Semantic Interoperability (IOTSI)", which took place in
   Santa Clara, California March 17-18, 2016.  The main goal of the
   workshop was to foster a discussion on the different approaches used
   by companies and Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) to
   accomplish interoperability at the application layer.  This report
   summarizes the discussions and lists recommendations to the standards
   community.  The views and positions in this report are those of the
   workshop participants and do not necessarily reflect those of the
   authors or the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), which organized the
   workshop.  Note that this document is a report on the proceedings of
   the workshop.  The views and positions documented in this report are
   those of the workshop participants and do not necessarily reflect IAB
   views and positions.

1.  Introduction

   The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) holds occasional workshops
   designed to consider long-term issues and strategies for the
   Internet, and to suggest future directions for the Internet
   architecture.  The investigated topics often require coordinated
   efforts from many organizations and industry bodies to improve an
   identified problem.  One of the targets of the workshops is to
   establish communication between relevant organizations, especially
   when the topics are out of the scope of the Internet Engineering Task
   Force (IETF).  This long-term planning function of the IAB is
   complementary to the ongoing engineering efforts performed by working
   groups of the IETF.

   With the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), interoperability
   becomes more and more important.  Standards Developing Organizations
   (SDOs) have done a tremendous amount of work to standardize new
   protocols and profile existing protocols.

   At the application layer and at the level of solution frameworks,
