Call for papers

The ACM/IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things Design and Implementation (IoTDI) is a premier venue on IoT. In 2022, IoTDI will be held for the seventh time, and will be part of CPS-IoT WEEK 2022 being held in Milan, Italy.


A confluence of technological advances marks the advent of a new era. World data volume is growing at an unprecedented pace, much of it from embedded devices. AI/ML technology promise unprecedented levels of automation in system operation and data processing. Smart cities grow, fed by millions of data points from multitudes of human and physical sources, together with machine intelligence algorithms that extract value for applications. Cyber-attacks grow more nefarious, bringing down physical systems. Social media are becoming ubiquitous, offering additional information on physical things. The separation between cyber, physical, and social systems is blurring. Collectively, these developments lead to the emergence of a new multi-disciplinary field, where the networking and physical realms meet, often in social spaces. It is the field of the Internet of Things (IoT). This conference is an interdisciplinary forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government to discuss challenges, technologies, and emerging directions in IoT system design and implementation. This conference invites original, previously unpublished work on a range of IoT topics, broadly defined.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Analytic foundations and theory of IoT
  • Reliability, security, timeliness, and robustness in IoT systems
  • Machine intelligence for IoT systems and applications
  • Social applications and social data analytics for IoT
  • Novel protocols and network abstractions
  • Data streaming architectures and AI/ML analytics for IoT
  • IoT-motivated cyber-physical and Industrial IoT (IIoT) systems
  • Novel quality requirements and their enforcement mechanisms
  • Cloud back-ends and resource management for IoT applications
  • Edge and fog computing
  • Personal, wearable, and other embedded networked front-ends
  • Social computing and human-in-the-loop issues
  • Applications domains (e.g., smart cities, smart health, smart buildings, smart transportation)
  • Deployment experiences, case studies, and lessons learned
  • Evaluation and testbeds
  • Energy/Power Management and Harvesting for IoT Platforms

For papers reporting results based on experiments with human subjects, appropriate ethics approvals should be demonstrated as part of the submission.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.

IoTDI collaborates closely with the IPSN conference, given the proximity in research themes (both related to IoT) and the co-location in CPS-IoT Week. We provide submission guidelines to aid prospective authors with the conference venue selection. In the meantime, we would like to make explicit that double submission remains prohibited under the publisher’s policy of Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions. In 2022 and to foster a closer joint-community, we would invite quality submissions to one venue for publication at the other, in case we find fit and the authors agree.
