Call For Papers

Internet of Things (IoT), one of the fastest growing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), is impacting organizations from all perspectives (e.g., operational, legal, financial, and competitiveness) forcing them to review their functional and non-functional practices. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), ``IoT spending will increase by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.6% from 2017 to 2022, reaching $1.2 trillion within the next four years. It is also predicted 41 billion IoT devices by 2027 and 70% of automobiles will be connected to the Internet by 2023.

To tap into the endless benefits and uses of IoT, the design principles and foundations of organizations’ enterprise architectures are expected to adjust to ensure a smooth integration of IoT into these architectures’ foundations namely organization, business, information, application, and technology. Aiming at examining these foundations separately and then collectively, this special issue will report about the latest advances and developments in the dynamic field of enterprise architecture in the IoT era. The special issue will cover issues like lack of techniques and guidelines that would enable enterprises to integrate IoT into the life cycle of designing, developing, and deploying enterprise architectures. This integration should lead to a new generation of enterprise architectures that would foster not only a deeper retrospect on the involved interactive digital resources inside the life cycle covering data collection, information analysis, knowledge reasoning and wisdom strategies, but also a better understanding of potential threats as well as the development of new ways of aligning business and ICT resources together to improve the competitiveness of the enterprise in the background of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) trend.

Whilst, on the one hand, IoT enacts many opportunities that enterprises could tap into, there are also obstacles that could undermine these opportunities, on the other hand. Some of these obstacles are lack of standards that cover both enterprise architecture and IoT, security holes that potentially exist in IoT devices making them questionable in terms of trust, security, and privacy, IoT limitations like silo restriction, computational capabilities, lack of semantic technologies that should describe IoT in a machine-understandable manner, just to mention some.

Topics of Interest
Topics for discussions in this special issue include, but are not limited to:
• Standards for IoT-based enterprise architecture.
• Enterprise architecture for Industry 4.0.
• Fog/Cloud collaboration in enterprise architecture (F2F, F2C, C2C)
• Data science for IoT-based enterprise architecture.
• Semantic technologies for IoT-based enterprise architecture.
• Agentification of IoT-based enterprise architecture.
• Interoperability inside and between IoT-based enterprise architecture.
• Guidelines and best practices for IoT-based enterprise architecture
• Privacy, trust, and security of IoT-based enterprise architecture.
• Context management and awareness for IoT-based enterprise architecture
• Case studies related to IoT-based enterprise architecture.

Submission guidelines
Submitted papers should present original, unpublished work, relevant to one of the topics of the Special Issue and the journal theme. In case of extended papers from conferences/workshops please make sure that your cover letter includes main improvements in the journal manuscript, and that you are submitting to this special issue, as well.

All submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, significance of contribution, technical quality, and quality of presentation. Manuscripts should be prepared according to Guide for Authors as published in Cluster Computing Journal at We invite prospective authors to submit their manuscripts via the online submission system on the main journal page.

Papers that either lack originality, clarity of presentation, or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and authors will be promptly informed in such cases.
