* Track Description

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of smart objects with pervasive and autonomous communication through internet connectivity. It has been emerged as a powerful and promising technology with significant technical, social and economic impacts. However, there are also lots of challenges to overcome to realize the potential benefits of IoT. The IoT track aims at bringing together researchers, experts, and practitioners from academia, industry, and government, to discuss current trends in research, practices, and education efforts of IoT. The track intends to foster the identification of the challenges facing IoT and approaches for solving them. The topics of the proposed track include, but are not limited to:

IoT Architectures, Systems and Testbeds
IoT Standards
Networking Technologies for IoT
Protocols and Algorithms for IoT
Data Management for IoT
Power Management for IoT
Data Analytics for IoT
Cognitive IoT
Identity Management in IoT
Security and Privacy of IoT
Social and Human Aspects in IoT
Cloud Computing and IoT
Body sensor networks
Intelligent Transportation Systems
Smart Grids
Smart Homes and Smart Cities
Smart Agriculture
Industrial IoT Applications
Consumer IoT Applications

* Submission Guideline

Papers that offer novel research contributions in the above-mentioned areas are solicited for the special track on Internet of Things. Papers must be written in English. The file format should be PDF, and papers must be formatted according to the template available at the SAC 2018 website. ACM SAC has the double blind review policy. Hence, the submission must be anonymous; no author name and affiliation must appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. Submission of papers is through the START conference system found at

Regular papers are limited to 8 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. Authors have the option to include up to two (2) extra pages at additional fee of US$80 per page. Posters are limited to 3 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. Authors have the option to include only one (1) extra page at additional fee of US$80. SRC Abstracts are limited to 2 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. No extra pages allowed.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the papers, posters, and SRC abstracts in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper: This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered papers, posters, and SRC abstracts will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

* Student Research Competition

Student Research Competition (SRC) Program: Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (minimum of 2-page and maximum of 4-page) following the instructions published at SAC 2017 website. Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. All research abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners with expertise in the track focus area to which they are submitted. Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster presentations of their work and compete for three top-winning places. The SRC committee will evaluate and select First-, Second-, and Third- place winners. The winners will receive cash awards and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet. Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award program for support.
