(extended due to COVID-19)

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a central and exciting research area encompassing many fields in information and communication technology and adjacent domains. IoT systems involve interacting, heterogeneous, distributed, and intelligent things, both from the digital and physical worlds including the human in the loop. Thanks to the increasingly wide spectrum of applications and cheap availability of both network connectivity and devices, a number of different stakeholders from industry, academia, society and government are part of the IoT ecosystem. 

Challenges include: better understanding of IoT applications in terms of scalability and heterogeneity; reliable communication in constantly changing networks and traffic scenarios; ability to mask high-latency; secure information handling and privacy preservation; integrating and mediating things within intelligent systems, where IoT technologies are potential catalysts;  addressing impending social and societal impacts vital to the success of the IoT.

The International Conference on the Internet of Things has become the premier gathering place where visionary, groundbreaking research in the IoT field, is showcased by researchers and leading industry experts. Since its beginning in 2008, the conference has been backed by strong support from leading academic institutions as well as industry.

Topics of Interests

IoT 2020 solicits original, high impact research papers on all topics related to the development and adoption of the Internet of Things – topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • IoT Edge and Cloud Architectures
  • AI for IoT
  • Web of Things
  • IoT Communication Technologies
  • Energy Efficiency and Sustainability in IoT
  • Sensing, Signal Processing, Actuation and Analytics
  • Security and Privacy in IoT
  • Human Interaction with IoT
  • Self-adaptation for IoT Systems
  • (Software) Interoperability in IoT
  • Large-scale Data Processing
  • Robotic IoT Systems
  • Distributed Ledger Technologies for IoT

Submission Information

Papers for the technical track must be submitted via the EasyChair ( conference system, written in English, and contain original material that has not been published or is currently undergoing review elsewhere. Papers should not exceed 8 double-column pages, including figures and references. Papers must use the new ACM master article template. Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three experts from the technical program committee following a single-blind review process (i.e., the identity of the reviewer is hidden, but the authors’ names and affiliations should be included in the submission). The papers will be evaluated based on relevance, soundness, novelty, practical relevance and potential impact. Accepted papers will be listed on DBLP and published via the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS). We plan to invite authors of selected papers to extend their contributions for inclusion in journal special issues.
