The first International Workshop on Mashups of Things and APIs will be co-located with the Middleware conference in beautiful Trento, Italy.

We will update this site continuously with further information (e.g., regarding the program, keynote etc.).

If you have any questions, reach out to us at mashups.workshop@gmail.com. You can also follow us on Twitter @mota_ws.

We extended the submission deadline from September 4th to September 9th!


MoTA will be part of the IoT Federated Workshops, which also includes the MECC and M4IoT workshops. This is the overall program:

Call for papers

In this workshop we solicit research papers and experience reports on mashups of things and APIs (MoTAs). MoTAs are applications - often rapidly prototyped or end-user-created - that use things, i.e., IoT sensors and devices, and web APIs to offer new functionality. In contrast to traditional web mashups, MoTAs are not always created by end users and typically not in a fully declarative way (e.g., through drag & drop); however, they still retain a certain focus on ease of integration through declarative and/or policy-driven middleware components instead of hardcoding individual connections.

This workshop focuses on actual implementations of such mashups (ranging from prototype to production system) as well as on the tools and systems that enable these implementations. In that spirit, this workshop tries to address multiple questions: what are desirable characteristics of MoTAs, and how can these characteristics be achieved? How can MoTAs be developed effectively and efficiently by different types of users? What are lessons learned and experiences from building MoTAs, and what are pain points to be addressed?

Topics of interest include:


MoTA seeks two kinds of paper submissions:

Please indicate the respective paper type on the title page of your submission, and submit a PDF file via EasyChair. All papers should follow ACM formatting instructions. Along with the paper, you are encouraged to submit additional material (e.g., a link to a YouTube video) on a separate page which will not be published as part of the proceedings. We will later add the link to the submission site.
