IEEE ICIOT 2018 - Call for Papers

ICIOT 2018 Call for Papers

Sponsored by the Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC), IEEE Computer Society

With the rapid advancements of mobile Internet, cloud computing and big data, device-centric traditional Internet of Things (IoT) is now moving into a new era which is termed as Internet of Things Services (IOTS). In this era, sensors and other types of sensing devices, wired and wireless networks, platforms and tools, data processing/visualization/analysis and integration engines, and other components of traditional IoT are interconnected through innovative services to realize the value of connected things, people, and virtual Internet spaces. The way of building new IoT applications is changing. We indeed need creative thinking, long-term visions, and innovative methodologies to respond to such a change. The 2nd IEEE International Congress on Internet of Things (ICIOT 2018) is organized to continue promote research and application innovations around the world.

The 3rd IEEE International Congress on Internet of Things (ICIOT 2018) covers state-of-the-art technologies and best practices of Internet of Things, as well as emerging standards and research topics which would define the future of Internet of Things. Topics of interest to include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • IOT Solution Reference Architectures and Instances
  • Next Generation Infrastructure for IOT
  • Cloud Computing (IAAS, PAAS, SAAS) for IOT
  • Big Data for IOT
  • Open Platforms for IOT
  • Wearable Devices for IOT
  • Artificial Intelligence for IOT
  • IOT-based Smart City Solutions
  • IOT-based Smart Home
  • IOT-based Smart Education Systems
  • IOT-based Robots
  • Security, privacy, and trust in IOT
  • IOT Standards and Application Scenarios
  • IOT-based Enterprise Management
  • IOT-based Business Process Management
  • IOT-based Auto Driving
  • IOT-based Intelligent Manufacturing
  • Other IOT-based Vertical Industry Solutions

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all ICIOT tracks will appear in the conference proceedings.

Submitted Research Track and Application Track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE Proceedings template. Submitted Short Paper track manuscripts will be limited to 4 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit may not be reviewed.

One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at ICIOT 2018. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student. Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions may be recommended to the Application Track or other tracks for further consideration if the session slots are available.

Review Policy

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.

Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.

About IEEE

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association advancing innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing and technology information around the globe.

About IEEE Computer Society

With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) is the world’s leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the largest of the 38 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the CS is dedicated to advancing the theory and application of computer and information-processing technology.

About the Technical Committee on Services Computing

Founded in 2003, IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee on Services Computing (TC-SVC) is a multidisciplinary group whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Services Computing carried out throughout the IEEE in scientific, engineering, standard, literary and educational areas.

Services Computing has become a cross-discipline that covers the science and technology of bridging the gap between Business Services and IT Services. The underneath breaking technology suite includes Web services and service-oriented architecture (SOA), cloud computing, business consulting methodology and utilities, business process modeling, transformation and integration. This scope of Services Computing covers the whole lifecycle of services innovation research that includes business componentization, services modeling, services creation, services realization, services annotation, services deployment, services discovery, services composition, services delivery, service-to-service collaboration, services monitoring, services optimization, as well as services management. The goal of Services Computing is to enable IT services and computing technology to perform business services more efficiently and effectively.
