1. Introduction

The Internet of Things (IoT) suggests a vision of a connected world where smart device, intelligent objects and web based systems are autonomously linked via the Internet and communicate with each other to improve the quality of life of their owners/users. The underlying technologies include distributed computing, Big Data analytics, AI, machine learning, machine-to-machine communication, robotics, signals processing, global networks, etc. With the appropriate use of relevant technologies and protocols, IoT can result in living in smart homes, developing smart cities, driving on smart roads, using intelligent inter-connected devices and monitoring/regulating living environments, etc. There are obviously numerous advantages that a connected world brings; however, concerns with respect to services’ availability, data security, and lack of interoperability protocols for heterogeneous devices are also real. Currently there is much interest in the IoT vision and many related topics and projects are being researched and undertaken. Within this context, the connectivity frameworks, methods and protocols from the IoT perspective is the core theme of this book.

2. Suggested Topics

Some topics relevant to the suggested theme of the book include:
• Communication protocols for connectivity of heterogeneous devices
• Frameworks for ubiquitous network access via the Internet
• Data collection from heterogeneous devices; management and analytics
• Real time data logging, backup and management solutions
• Machine-to-machine interaction and machine learning algorithms
• Event driven architectural frameworks relating to IoT
• Signals processing; and Big Data modelling and management
• Security, privacy and safety of data; and related control issues
• Management and frameworks for large scale deployment of IoT
• Unique addressability, privacy and autonomy of ‘things’ in the IoT
• Existing products, techniques and frameworks in relation to IoT connectivity
• Social impact; and Social, business and industrial applications of IoT
• Limitations, concerns and Solutions relating to connectivity of objects
• Other relevant topics on related research

3. Aim and Objectives

The aim of the proposed book is to report and discuss the state-of-the-art in terms of frameworks and methodologies for connecting heterogeneous devices in relation to the IoT vision - to inform other researchers and practitioners as well as to advance the existing body of knowledge in this new emerging paradigm. The objectives are:
• To capture the latest research and practice relating to IoT
• To discuss developments with respect to interaction between smart devices
• To discuss the frameworks/methodologies for machine-2-machine communication
• To identify further research directions/technologies for IoT connectivity.

4. Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit 1-2 page chapter proposals clearly stating the objective, scope and structure of the proposed chapters - by the deadline mentioned above. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified within two weeks (in most cases) and given guidelines for full chapter preparation. Completed chapters should ideally be approximately 10,000 words or 20 pages in length each – longer chapters will also be acceptable. Full chapters will be reviewed following a double-blind peer review process to ensure relevance, quality, originality and high information content. Proposals (and full chapters, after the acceptance of the proposal), as MS WORD files, should be sent to:

5. Important dates

• Chapter proposals due date: 5 May 2015
• Notification of acceptance by: 15 May 2015
• Full chapters due date: 15 July 2015
• Chapter reviews feedback by: 1 Oct 2015
• Revised chapters due date: 1 Nov 2015
• Manuscript delivery to publishers: 1 Mar 2016
