"Research in related areas" ≠ "twin studies"

This will come as a surprise to all of us who believed that the Internet is Made of Cats:
Dear Pro. ,
Considering your research in related areas, we cordially invite you to submit a paper to Modern Internet of Things (MIOT).

The Journal of Modern Internet of Things (MIOT) is published in English, and is a peer reviewed free-access journal which provides rapid publications and a forum for researchers, research results, and knowledge on Internet of Things. It serves the objective of international academic exchange.

For more information, please visit homepage: www.miot-journal.org.

Focus and Scopes:

1. Technologies and concepts in modern networked things
2. Design of future sustainable technologies linking the physical and virtual world
3. Fundamental and technology of sensors and converters
4. Emerging applications and interaction paradigms for everyday citizens
5. Communication systems and network architectures for the IOT
6. Experience reports from the introduction and operation of networked things in areas such as healthcare, logistics and transport
7. Real world applications and scenarios for embedded web services
8. Novel services and applications in IOT to facilitate environmental responsibility
9. Peer-to-Peer(P2P) technology and its applications in Internet of Things
11. Emerging IOT business models and process changes
12. Social impacts and consequences, such as security, privacy, opportunities and risks
13. RFID technology and its applications in Internet of Things (such as attacks, date protection and privacy-enhancing, cryptographic protocols and integration of secure)
14. Wireless Sensor Networks
15. Wireless mesh networks and cognitive networks
16. Mobile Networks
17. Integration of secure RFID systems
18. Resource-efficient implementation of cryptography in IOT devices
19. Interoperability of heterogeneous systems
20. Tool support for service creation, validation and testing in IOT system
21. Protocols for efficient message transmission to embedded devices
22. Web services executing in mobile or pervasive environments
23. Distributed sensor networks for remote monitoring and surveillance
24. Smart Objects
Above: Smart, objecting

UPDATE: tigris in comments reminds us that the alternative to the MIOT is the Modern Internet of Operators (MIOI), but that is only accessible to people with the necessary thought-control powers.

Maru can bend time and space...and now it all makes sense.

Cats aren't things? OMG THEY'RE OPERATORS!!!!

Smut Clyde said...

Unaccountably, no-one has Phopped an image of Maru trying to squeeze into a very very small Tardis.
This could profitably be combined with the "shrunken Tardis" scene that wound up the Time Meddler episodes from 1965 (he said, showing his age).

Oh sure, you with your fancy invitations to MIOT, and your life of caviar and leisure. Some of us only get invitations to submit to the Journal of Functional Foods in Health and Disease (JFFHD). But they are excited to announce: "we currently have more than 50 published articles in our peer review, open access journal Functional Foods in Health and Disease. "

So take that mr. internet connected thingy.

Dear sirs. I would like to submit, for your approval, my paper for your fine Journal, "Trouser Location Management via Network Connectivity".


Trousers. Often we discover at the most unfortunate moments that they've gone missing. Today, we are left with obsolete solutions, such as trying to remember when we last had them on, or somewhat randomly asking about even as people shriek and point, followed by the virtually inevitable interaction with unpleasant uniformed law enforcement.

Here at mikey HQ, we have developed a comprehensive solution, consisting of a SoC Webserver, 3G radio and GPS interface that can be discretely attached to almost any pair of trousers.

Location information is broadcast in a minimal-footprint frame of UDP packets, while inter-trouser communication is based on the Gossip peer-to-peer protocol. The network is 100% Trouser Aware, and remains fully functional even with the loss of an individual node, such as when the trousers are in the wash or left on the bus (again).

With our optional PantServer software, the trouser network operator can manage and monitor the location and status of all the trousers on the network from any web browser. PantServer keeps all historical data, and the storage protocol, PantXML can be used with most mapping software tools to provide both real-time and historical Trouser location services...

Mikey, you give us hope! If you could add a feature to ensure that a person would not forget to put their pants on before leaving the house it would be magnificent!! Who hasn't had that unfortunate experience? People pointing and laughing while you nervously laugh with them, wondering what the joke is. Finally a digital solution!!

Peer reviewed = reviewed by peering at it.

Smut Clyde said...

I remember when "digital solution" meant "fingers dissolved in acid".

Someone's reading Riddled!

mikey said...

Wiley, you're in luck!

TrouserNet includes a fully documented open API and a Java interface. Interfaces for PHP and Ruby are in development. The API includes the GetButtonStatus, GetZipperStatus and CheckForSmegma class methods, and with the addition of the NFC radio chip and a few sensors, you can monitor not just Trouser Location, but Trouser Status too...

someone rich give mikey some venture captial stat!!!

I can only suggest that you forward the invitation to PP.

wiley said...

Great mikey! Might this fantastic product tell you that these pants do not make you look fat also?

fish said...

I do not want to know where the hardware is kept.

Dragon-King Wangchuck said...

,,,you can monitor not just Trouser Location, but Trouser Status too,,,

Something about cascading style sheets.
