The Internet of Things has become a very hot research topic, which is projected to have a high impact in the development of innovative technologies that will lead the near future. These technologies are opening tremendous opportunities for a large number of novel applications that promise to improve the quality of our lives.
This special issue aims to gather latest research and development achievements in the field of Internet of Things. Original papers that address the most current issues and challenges are solicited. In addition to open submissions, authors of the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom 2011) and the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings 2011) will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to this special issue for consideration. Manuscripts from the conferences must have at least 40% extension compared with the conference versions.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Architecture and infrastructure
- System design, modeling and evaluation
- Ubiquitous sensing
- Networks and communications
- Intelligent data processing
- Ubiquitous/pervasive computing
- Cyber-physical systems and society
- Reliability, security, privacy and trust
- Applications, business and social issues
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to the website. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process.
