Open call for Track Articles
All submissions must be original manuscripts of between 3,500 and 5,000 words, including full text, abstract, keywords, bibliography, biographies, and 250 words for each figure and table. Submissions should comply with IC’s general requirements for form and content. In particular, articles should be understandable to a broad audience of science and engineering professionals and students who don’t necessarily have specialized experience in a particular subfield. The writing should be down to earth, practical, and original. Avoid too much focus on theory, mathematics, jargon, or abstract concepts.
Internet of Things
Track Editors: Florian Michahelles and Frédéric Thiesse
The Internet of Things (IOT) denotes the vision of a future world of real-world objects whose physical shape and function is being extended by networked digital components. In the IOT, physical, everyday items collect information about their environment, record it or react to it, and connect with resources in a network or even among themselves for the reciprocal use of data and services. First commercial examples can be found in the form of interorganizational RFID infrastructures, sensor networks, and a plethora of real-time location systems.
This special track of IC seeks original articles that explore how the Internet can take the next step in its evolution: the integration of real-world objects into its virtual fabric. Appropriate topics include
- novel services and applications in an IOT;
- emerging IOT business models and process changes;
- communication systems and network architectures for the IOT;
- technologies and concepts for embedding sensing, actuation, communication, and computation into networked physical items;
- experience reports from the introduction and operation of networked physical items in areas such as healthcare, logistics, and transport; and
- security and privacy aspects of IOT infrastructures and applications.
Articles for this track should be submitted via email to one or both of the track editors.
Please contact our publications coordinator if you have any questions about the submission process.
