Call for Papers
The Internet of Things (IoT) undergoes a fundamental transformation as an increasing diversity of intelligent devices are being connected to it. Underpinning this global development, the Series on IoT and Sensor Networks aims at bringing together the latest industrial and academic progress, research, and development efforts within the rapidly maturing IoT ecosystem. The Series profoundly explores the concept of IoT and sensor networks, highlights the recent activities and achievements therein, as well as provides insights into the theoretical and practical matters related to breakthroughs in this field from different perspectives. We welcome contributions on the emerging IoT topics that support prospective "critical" IoT applications as well as on further evolution of the conventional "massive" sensor network based enablers. The submissions should be tutorial in nature and significantly advance the state-of-the-art in the topics on IoT and sensor networks, which include but are not limited to:
- System architecture and protocol design (access, mobility, routing, scalability, etc.)
- New communication and sensing devices for IoT
- Enabling communication technologies for IoT (e.g., wireless, optical, acoustic, molecular, quantum)
- IoT-specific radio solutions (NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa, SigFox, etc.)
- Novel Internet of Everything (IoE) paradigms (e.g., Internet of Bio-Nano Things, Internet of Vehicles, Internet of Drones, Internet of Space, Internet of People)
- Converged communication, computing, and storage technologies for IoT
- Integrated communication, positioning, navigation, and control in IoT
- Energy efficiency, energy harvesting, power management, and green operation
- Smart objects, devices, environments, middleware, platforms, and tools for IoT applications
- Analysis, simulation, testbed, and measurement campaigns
- Emerging applications (e.g., IoT for Agriculture, Smart City, Smart Energy, Smart Health, Smart Transport, Public Safety, Humanitarian Technologies, Industry 4.0, Society 5.0)
- Socio-economic, security and privacy, standardization, policy, and regulatory aspects of IoT
This list is not exhaustive: submissions on new and interesting ideas related to Internet of Things and Sensor Networks are encouraged.
Manuscripts must be submitted through the magazine’s submissions Website, Manuscript Central. You will need to register and then proceed to the author center. On the manuscript details page, please select Internet of Things and Sensor Networks Series from the drop-down menu. Manuscripts should be tutorial in nature and should not be under review for any other conference or journal. They should be written in a style comprehensible and accessible to readers outside the specialty of the article. Mathematical equations should not be used. For detailed submission guidelines please refer to the magazine website for the list of Paper Submission Guidelines that must be followed by all submissions to the IEEE Communications Magazine.
Papers can be submitted anytime during the year. They will receive a review process, and, if accepted, they will be published in the first slot available for this Series.
