The Internet of Things (IoT) is concerned with all aspects related to the network connected objects, such as physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items, which are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity. IoT allows these objects to collect and exchange data. IoT enables objects to be perceived and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and promoting efficiency, accuracy, and economic benefit.

The 2nd IEEE International Congress on Internet of Things (ICIOT 2018), owned by IEEE since 2017, provides a platform and opportunities for participants to exchange the new advances, applications, experiences, and research results in the fields related to Internet of Things (see history). It covers state-of-the-art technologies and best practices, as well as emerging standards and research topics that will define the future of Internet of Things. It also facilitates the knowledge sharing among engineers, scientists, scholars, researchers, practitioners, and students across the world.

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. IEEE ICIOT 2018 seeks original, UNPUBLISHED research papers reporting substantive new work in various aspects of IoT and related services. Papers MUST clearly indicate their contributions to the field 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
  • Open Platforms for IoT and Web of Things

IEEE Policy

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.
