SO-IoT-JSAN 2020 : Smart Objects in the Internet of Things: From Sensor to Data Processing
Call For Papers
We would like to invite you to contribute a paper to the special issue "Smart Objects in the Internet of Things: From Sensor to Data Processing". This special issue belongs to Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks (ISSN 2224-2708). Both article and review are welcome.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020
Guest Editors: Dr. Marco Picone, Dr. Marco Mamei, Dr. Màrius Montón
The information technology ecosystem has been recently and significantly revolutionized by the advent of the Internet of things (IoT), and its quick and pervasive evolution. The IoT will consist of billions of interconnected devices denoted as “smart objects”, able to generate and consume a massive amount of heterogenous data. The massive amount of information being created by the IoT has the power to revolutionize everything from industry to healthcare, allowing them to work more efficiently and profitably. In this challenging context, data collection and data processing are two of the crucial pillars that will allow for extracting technological and business values from IoT applications and real deployments.
Furthermore, the mission of critical application will need real-time actionable intelligence and powerful user interfaces in order to make decisions and/or support decision makers in complex tasks. The seamless and efficient cooperation between data collection and processing, analytics, edge computing, and networking will be a fundamental enabler for the next generation of applications.
This Special Issue focuses on the innovative developments, technologies, and challenges related to Internet of things data generation, collection, modeling, and processing. The Special Issue is seeking the latest findings from research and ongoing projects. Additionally, review articles that provide readers with current research trends and solutions are also welcome. The potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Data discovery in IoT applications
- IoT data analytics
- Machine learning for IoT
- Integrating IoT data with external data sources
- Data generation, collection, and synchronization technologies
- Data processing for IoT
- Data science applications and services
- Data presentation and user interfaces (conversational interfaces, VR/AR)
- IoT application orchestration and coordination
- Distributed data management
- IoT Real-time application
- Real-time data processing for IoT
- Edge computing and efficient data processing
- Heterogeneity management
- Data modeling and seamless interoperability
- Application and data integration for IoT applications
** Manuscript Submission Information **
The submission deadline is *30 June 2020*. You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. A first decision can be provided to authors within *approximately 18 days* after submission without sacrificing the peer review quality. All submissions are peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published immediately.
JSAN is an international open access journal on the science and technology of actuators and control systems, published quarterly online by MDPI. It is presently indexed in *Scopus* (CiteScore = 2.58) and *Web of Sciences* (Clarivate Analytics), as part of the ESCI database. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 1000 currently applies to all accepted papers.
If you are interested in contributing, we encourage authors to send a short abstract or tentative title to us or the Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance.
