IoTDI 2021

The 6th ACM/IEEE Conference on Internet of Things Design and Implementation May 18-21, 2021 — Nashville, TN, USA

Call for papers

The organizers of IoTDI 2021 are pleased to announce the organization of IoTDI 2021, and are soliciting high-quality papers for the conference. The ACM/IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things Design and Implementation (IoTDI) is a premier venue on IoT. In 2021, IoTDI will be held for the sixth time, and will be part of CPS-IoT WEEK 2021 being organized in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

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. Smart cities are expected to grow, fed by millions of data points from multitudes of human and physical sources. Cyber-attacks grow more nefarious, bringing down physical systems. Social networks are becoming ubiquitous, offering information on physical things. The separation between cyber, physical, and social systems is blurring. Collectively, these developments lead to the emergence of a new field, where the networking and physical realms meet. It is the field of the Internet of Things (IoT). This conference is an interdisciplinary forum to discuss challenges, technologies, and emerging directions in system design and implementation that pertain to IoT. This conference invites researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, and accepts original, previously unpublished work on a range of topics related to IoT.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Analytic foundations and theory of IoT
  • Reliability, security, timeliness, and robustness in IoT systems
  • Novel protocols and network abstractions
  • Data streaming architectures and machine learning 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 & lessons learned
  • Evaluation and testbeds
  • AI/ML for IoT & Embedded Systems
  • Energy/Power Management & Harvesting for IoT Platforms

Accepted papers of particular merit will be invited to submit an extended version to the IEEE IoT Journal (IoT-J). For papers reporting results based on experiments with human subjects, appropriate ethics approvals should be demonstrated as part of the submission.

Please find the submission-specific details (e.g., page lengths, formats, submission URL) in submission guidelines.

Call for papers in PDF.


Author Registration Policy: Consistent with the practice across all CPS-IoT Week 2021 conference, all accepted papers at IoTDI 2021 will need a full (non-student) registration. (If the same author has multiple papers, then each paper will need its own distinct registration)

Abstract submission deadline: Oct 19, 2020 (AoE)
Paper submission deadline: Oct 26, 2020 (AoE)
Author notification: January 19, 2021 (AoE)
Camera-ready submission deadline: March 7, 2021 (AoE)


CPS-IoT Week 2021

CPS-IoT Week is the premier event on Cyber-Physical Systems. This year it brings together four conferences, HSCC, ICCPS, IPSN and RTAS, three guest conferences, IC2E, ICFC and IoTDI, multiple workshops, tutorials, competitions and various exhibitions from both industry and academia.


Joint Statement from IoTDI/IPSN TPC Chairs

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 ACM's policy of "Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions".

In 2021 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.
