Call for Papers

Abstract submission April 25 / Full paper submission May 1
New dates: Abstract submission May 15 / Full paper submission May 22
(extended due to COVID-19)

The deadline for camera-ready papers has been extended to August 15, 2020.

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.

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.

When preparing your camera-ready paper for submission, please refer to the ACM General Information page

Submissions must be formatted according to the sigconf 2-column ACM master article template and not exceed 8 pages, including references.

In addition to uploading the camera-ready PDF in EasyChair, you must send a .zip file containing the complete set of source files (e.g., Word or LaTeX files, image files) that were used to generate the camera-ready PDF to the following email:

Please, include your paper number in the email subject, e.g., “paper #43 source files” and in the name of the .zip file.

For any questions, please do not use the above mentioned email; instead, contact the IoT 2020 Publications Chairs, and

Also, in case of any change to your paper title, list and/or order of authors and/or contact information, they must be communicated ASAP by writing to Martina and Radu (and in Cc).  

To get your paper published in the ACM proceeding, please note that at least one author must register to the conference by the time you submit your camera-ready by following this link on the conference webpage:

Finally, we remind you that the camera-ready deadline is August 15th and we appreciate a lot if you could submit as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your collaboration!
