Call For Papers

Selected papers will be invited to submit extended manuscripts in a special issue in Springer Cluster Computing The Journal of Networks, Software Tools and Applications (Impact factor 3.6, 2020 ISI Q1).


The International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence of Things: Architectures and Applications (AIoTCon) would be an opportunity to discuss recent challenges/progress and shed light on open questions to lead the next decade of research trends on AI + IoT from the architecture and application perspective.

For a long time, centralized deployment models were utilized to facilitate such AI/ML operations. Yet, a novel paradigm known as the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) comes into play. The possibility to improve the IoT capabilities that generate enormous data, using the AI/ML approaches, which consume these data for supporting intelligent management is extensive. By harnessing machine intelligence's empowered abilities, IoT applications and architectures yield advanced operations closer to the data source. This scenario relies on using different AI systems to support the IoT and Edge-to-Cloud activities.

However, the need to operate large-scale heterogeneous devices and sensors while being performance-efficient in real-time is challenging. Such challenges are related to providing edge intelligence, including training edge devices, unstable performance, uncertain security, and more challenges. These challenges behove extensive attention from academia and industry. The purpose of this workshop is to afford a venue covering all aspects of cutting-edge technologies at the crossing of AI and IoT to advance their joint applications.
