Open Call

The IEEE IoT-J is available in IEEE Xplore. The IEEE IoT-J solicits original work that must not be currently under consideration for publication in other venues. Topics include IoT system architecture, IoT enabling technologies, IoT services and applications, and the social implications of IoT. The fields of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • IoT architectures such as things-centric, data-centric, service-centric architecture, CPS and SCADA platforms, future Internet design for IoT, cloud-based IoT, and system security and manageability.
  • IoT enabling technologies such as sensors, radio frequency identification, low power and energy harvesting, sensor networks, machine-type communication, resource-constrained networks, real-time systems, IoT data analytics, in situ processing, and embedded software.
  • IoT services, applications, standards, and test-beds such as streaming data management and mining platforms, service middleware, open service platform, semantic service management, security and privacy-preserving protocols, design examples of smart services and applications, and IoT application support.

Special Issues

The IEEE IoT-J is soliciting special issue proposals on timely and significant technical topics with broad interests.  A special issue proposal should have enough content to address: background and motivation, significance and relevance to the IEEE IoT-J, technical scope of the proposal, the plan for advertising the Call for Papers (CFP), the plan for handling paper review process, tentative schedule, a list of potential authors, a list of guest editors and their short biographies with emphasis on their experience in the proposed topic and relevant editorial experience, and one-page CFP draft. Pease refer to the IEEE IoT-J’sguest editor guidelines for details. Guest editors, who are interested in organizing a special issue, are invited to submit a proposal to the Editor-in-Chief.

Expanded Conference Papers

The IEEE IoT-J will consider publishing expanded, more complete, and archival-quality versions of papers that have been presented at conferences and published in conference proceedings. Please refer to the guidelines
