Feature Topic on Internet of Things/M2M from Research to Standards: The Next Steps

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a framework in which all things have a representation and a presence in the Internet. More specifically, the Internet of Things aims at offering new applications and services bridging the physical and virtual worlds, in which Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications represents the baseline communication that enables the interactions between Things and applications in the cloud.

The Internet of Things allows for the pervasive interaction with/between smart things leading to an effective integration of information into the digital world. These smart (mobile) things - which are instrumented with sensing, actuation, and interaction capabilities - have the means to exchange information and influence real-world entities and other actors of such a digital world eco-system in real time, forming a smart pervasive computing environment. The objective is to achieve global access to the services and information through the so-called Web of Things, as well as efficient support for global communications.

The first generation of IoT/M2M standards (from IEEE, IETF, 3GPP, IETF, oneM2M, etc.) is sufficiently mature to enable large-scale operational deployments. Connectivity, vertical data models, RESTful APIs and device lifecycle management are concrete examples of these foundation standards representing the basis of current deployments such as eHealth, automotive, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), and smart cities.

As the IoT deployment pace accelerates, a next generation of standards is needed to realize the full IoT/M2M vision. This feature topic seeks both mature and early research on candidate standards that will transfer to standards organizations such as oneM2M, IETF, 3GPP, IEEE, HGI, BBF, etc.

Submitted papers in this feature topic are expected to focus on state-of-the-art research in various aspects of IoT/M2M from academics and industry viewpoints. The aim of this special issue is thus to offer a venue where researchers from both academia and industry can publish premier articles on the recent advances in theory, application and implementation of IoT/M2M standards concepts.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following areas of standards research:
Lightweight protocols and structured data such as Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) for the IoT
Interworking with other technologies and systems such as Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and cloud computing
Advanced indexing, naming, and addressing of the IoT
Optimization and enhancement of the currently standardized IoT architectures
Novel concepts for sensors and actuators such as crowd-sourcing
Abstraction and Semantics technologies for devices and services
Experiences and field trials of IoT applications: Smart cities, digital
IoT/M2M Management: Device management evolutions, Autonomous management, Conflict management, service harmonization
Next generation of open platforms and hardware for the IoT
Security, Trust, Privacy and Identity in the IoT
