Special Section in Issue 2/2017 - May 2017
IoT is a new emerging technology domain which will be used to connect all objects through the Internet for remote sensing and control. IoT uses a combination of WSN (Wireless Sensor Network), M2M (Machine to Machine), robotics, wireless networking, Internet technologies, and Smart Devices.
The overall aim of this special section is to collect state-of-the-art research findings on the latest development, up-to-date issues, and challenges in the field of Internet of Things. Proposed submissions should be original, unpublished, and novel in-depth research that makes significant methodological or application contributions. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cyber-physical and other IoT systems architectures
- Data management in IoT
- Energy efficient management and sustainable operation of IoT/M2M objects
- IoT and Cloud computing
- Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications in IoT
- Modeling and simulation of large-scale IoT scenarios
- Network architecture and system design in IoT
- Privacy, Security and Trust for IoT
- Programming models for the IoT
- Social networks for IoT
- Testbed, prototype, and practical systems for IoT use cases
Submission format and Guidelines
Submitted papers must be written in good English and describe original research which has not been published nor is currently under review by other journals or conferences. Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to research and development of big data, as well as their suitability and quality in terms of both technical contributions and written presentation. Significant extensions of papers published in related conferences is encouraged. Such submissions should be clearly identified by the authors the amount of additional and different materials. The information should be clearly indicated in the manuscript. The Guest Editor will check the suitability and scope of all submissions before sending out for peer review.
