since 2005

The future Internet is expected to interconnect and to make interoperable heterogeneous and smart objects in order to realize the vision of the Internet of Things (IoT). This will allow for implementing pervasive and living environments for the benefit of several applications, such as environmental monitoring, building automation, healthcare, smart cities, smart grid, logistics. There are key emerging hardware technologies and innovative software architectures and functionalities that still need to be developed to make it a reality, which should mostly introduce distributed intelligence for a reliable and effective processing of the information about the physical world that should provide a complete knowledge to the top running applications. With this special issue, we invite authors to submit original research and review articles mainly focused on technological, architectural and practical innovations in the field of smart technologies and architectures enabling the Internet of Things. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Middleware and architecture for the IoT
  • Semantic Web and Ontology in the IoT
  • Mobile applications in the IoT
  • Wearable solutions for smart sensing environments
  • Embedded systems for the IoT
  • Mobile and Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Innovative AAL systems
  • Microservices Architectures
  • Innovative solutions for Industry 4.0 based on ModBus and MQTT
  • Big Data and Data Analytics
  • Smart environments and Internet of Things
  • Case studies, field trials, and industrial Applications

Papers submission is according to the following timetable:
