Paper Submission Instructions

The information below is for your reference only!
Full paper submissions have been closed.


See the Call for Papers for a list of topics. Note that submissions should be appropriate for a multi-disciplinarily audience, i.e., while your contribution should be outstanding in its main research area(s), please aim to make it also interesting and understandable for researchers from other areas in the Internet of Things community. We are particularly interested in work addressing real-world implementation and deployment issues.

Status of Prior Publications

IOT2008 solicits original, unpublished work that is not under consideration elsewhere. Contact the Program Chairs at pc-chairs at when in doubt about any overlap with prior work or concurrent submissions. With respect to prior publications, the following holds:

  • Poster, demos, and technical reports do not count as prior published work
  • Workshop publications count as prior published work only if they appear in an "archival" publication.
  • Papers in published proceedings, book chapters, and journal articles do count as prior published work.

Papers may contain no more than 25% of material from prior published work when it is required for explanation/background. The remainder of the paper must consist of new ideas, results, or guidelines, not simply filler information.


Paper submissions should be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize references that may reveal the identity of the authors or their institutions. Relevant references to an author's previous research should not be suppressed but instead referenced in a neutral way.

Formatting Instructions

Submissions should be single-column and not exceed 18 pages in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. LaTeX-users should use the Springer LaTeX2e template. While we strongly recommend LaTeX for the preparation of your document, you can also use a Word template if needed. For other authoring tools, see the Springer LNCS Author's Page. Submissions should be anonymized to facilitate blind review (see above).

Note: Keywords are not needed for your IOT2008 submission, even though the Word template features an explicit keyword-section (the LaTeX template does not). You are of course free to supply them if you are using Word. If you use LaTeX and want to use keywords, use the following instructions for adding keywords.

Submission Procedure

Please register and upload your paper using the EDAS paper upload form. You will need to submit your full paper at the given submission deadline, not just an abstract. If you do not have an EDAS account yet, you will need to register first (free of charge).
