Special Issue on Recent Advances on Internet of Things

The Scientific World Journal, Hindawi (Impact Factor 1.730)

Call for Papers

In recent years, Internet of Things (IoT) has become increasingly ubiquitous. IoT enables a detailed characterization 
of the physical environment, as well as a rich set of interactions with the physical world. Therefore, IoT has the 
potential to revolutionize pervasive computing and its applications. The success of intelligent IoT highly depends on 
the system architectures, networks and communications, data processing, and ubiquitous computing technologies, which 
support efficient and reliable physical and cyber interconnections. Indeed, the realization of ubiquitous IoT poses 
several challenges about seamless integration, heterogeneity, scalability, mobility, and many others. This special 
issue solicits high-quality papers presenting original research results on IoT that are tightly related to pervasive 
and ubiquitous scenarios. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    System architectures for the IoT targeted to pervasive scenarios
    Big data, data science, and analytical intelligence for IoT
    Middleware and service platforms for ubiquitous IoT applications
    Cyber-physical security, data privacy, and trust in IoT
    Ubiquitous computing solutions exploiting the M2M paradigm
    Context awareness in the IoT
    Mobility management in the IoT and in M2M communications
    Social computing and collective intelligence of human society with IoT
    Pervasive applications built on top of the IoT
    Cooperative data fusion, mining, and processing of IoT
    Sustainable design and solutions for the IoT
    Services, applications, and business opportunities of intelligent IoT
    Application of IoT in industry
    Other related topics
