Manuscript Due

March 30, 2018 (closed)


Today, smart grid, smart homes, smart water networks, intelligent transportation, are infrastructure systems that connect our world more than we ever thought possible. The common vision of such systems is usually associated with one single concept, the internet of things (IoT), where through the use of sensors, the entire physical infrastructure is closely coupled with information and communication technologies; where intelligent monitoring and management can be achieved via the usage of networked embedded devices. In such a sophisticated dynamic system, devices are interconnected to transmit useful measurement information and control instructions via distributed sensor networks.
The objective of this special issue is to bring together state-of-the-art research contributions, tutorials, and technical papers that address key aspects of wireless networks in IoT with special emphasis on their implications in infrastructure less wireless networks. Original manuscripts describing completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal, magazine, or conference are solicited.

Topics of interest include:
  • Reprogrammable and reconfigurable software architectures enabling runtime selection of operation mode and parameter settings of IoT devices at different levels (radio, network, application)
  • Monitoring, analysis and diagnosis of the network context
  • Intelligent algorithms and strategies for network optimization for taking optimal decisions on operation mode and configurations
  • Application enablers: constrained protocols and abstractions for building IoT applications aiming to reduce programming effort, to offload the network or to improve performance or interoperability
  • Adaptive quality of service (QoS) provisioning for constrained devices
  • Adaptive privacy, trust and security solutions for sensors networks with constrained embedded devices
  • Cooperative and heterogeneous networks
  • Routing, MAC and transport layer protocols in cognitive sensor networks
  • Cross-layer optimization solutions
  • Tools and frameworks for designing, deploying and maintaining intelligent IoT networks
  • Open source platforms for cognitive sensor networks
  • Experimental validation of IoT solutions
