Call For Papers

The 20th Annual International Conference on Distributed Computing in Smart Systems and the Internet of Things (DCOSS-IoT 2024)
Abu Dhabi, UAE - April 29 to May 1, 2024
* The DCOSS-IoT series of events are always technically co-sponsored by IEEE, and Proceedings are published by IEEE Xplore.

The 20th International Conference on Distributed Computing in Smart Systems and the Internet of Things (DCOSS-IoT 2024) will be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The conference is always co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and by the IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP).
The conference was previously known as DCOSS. Starting in 2023, the event is broadening its scope beyond sensor networks to include smart systems in general and the Internet of Things (IoT). The updated name is “Distributed Computing in Smart Systems and the Internet of Things” (DCOSS-IoT).
In the last few years, we have witnessed significant growth in the use of IoT and distributed sensor systems in several application areas, including smart transportation, smart energy systems, smart homes and buildings, smart healthcare, and environmental monitoring. For smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we need to address several research challenges, including the tight integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security, privacy and trust. DCOSS-IoT focuses on issues arising in the entire IoT and networked sensor systems stack, covering aspects of high-level abstractions, models and languages, communication technologies, novel algorithms and applications, system design approaches and architectures, and tools for simulated and real deployments. Potential authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts demonstrating recent advances in theoretical and experimental research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Artificial Intelligence for IoT
Machine learning and data mining for IoT and Smart Systems
Smart healthcare to combat epidemics
Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to cloud
Machine intelligence in distributed sensor systems and real-time analytics
Novel communication paradigms (e.g., 5G/6G, VLC, DSA) for IoT and Smart Systems
Cyber-Physical Systems
IoT and Smart Systems for Smart and Connected Communities
Autonomous systems: closing the loop between sensing and actuation
Time and location management
Robustness, resilience, and dependability of IoT and smart systems
Security and privacy in IoT and Smart Systems
Performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
Mobile and human-centric sensing
IoT and Smart Systems for social computing
Interoperability, heterogeneity and scalability
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based sensing/communications/networking
Social sensing and crowd sensing techniques, applications, and systems
Complex systems comprising wearable, robotic and/or fixed sensor systems
IoT and Smart Systems for emerging and developing economies
Green and environmentally friendly IoT (low-power, harvesting, energy management)
Sensors and Robots for Internet of Intelligent Things
Design and implementation of real-world applications and systems
Approaches, tools, and experience of deployment and operation
Interdisciplinary applications of IoT and Smart Systems
Smart healthcare and digital epidemiology
Smart agriculture
Smart infrastructures
Smart cities
Smart energy, transportation, and water distribution systems
Smart factories
Smart workspace

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts demonstrating current research on distributed smart systems and IoT related to the aforementioned topics of interest. Please use the US letter size (8.5 X 11 in) standard IEEE conference LaTeX format or Microsoft Word template available on:

All submissions should be written in English and have a maximum of eight (8) printed pages, including figures and references. Starting last year, DCOSS-IoT will follow a double-blind review process. As a result, authors must make a good faith effort to anonymize their submissions. Although submission is double-blind, the existence or availability of non-anonymous preprints (on arXiv or other preprint servers) will not lead to your paper being rejected. Reviewers will be instructed not to look for such preprints actively,but encountering them will not constitute a conflict of interest. Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be reviewed. We require each paper to be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and submitted through the HotCRP submission system.

*** Special Issue and Best Paper Awards ***
DCOSS-IoT 2024 will announce a best paper award and a best poster/demo award.
Extended versions of selected best papers from DCOSS-IoT 2024 will be included in a Special Issue of the Computer Networks (COMNET) Journal.
