The Internet of Things (IoT) is a central and exciting research area that organically brings together academia, industry, society, and even governmental agencies due to the innovative advancements that connected devices and connected systems can bring to society.  As the IoT evolves and gets ever more established, its focus widens, from bringing devices to the Internet, to achieving seamless and autonomous interaction among heterogeneous devices, connecting and taking advantages of intelligent and interoperable things and services from both the physical and virtual world, to the unrefusable need for distributed ecosystems that, while keeping the human in the loop, are capable of providing secure interactions among cross-domain heterogeneous IoT services.

The International Conference on the Internet of Things is the premier gathering for visionary, groundbreaking research in the IoT field. It connects world-class researchers with leading industry experts to steer innovation in multiple IoT verticals (e.g., smart city, smart health, smart buildings, rural areas). Since its beginnings in the year 2008, the conference has been backed by strong support from leading academic institutions as well as industry. We are happy to announce its 11th iteration and associated workshops, which will take place from November 8-12 in St Gallen, Switzerland (and virtually).

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 article template (when using the overleaf ACM template choose the sample-sigconf.tex file). Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three experts from the technical program committee following a double-blind review process (i.e., the identity of the reviewer and the authors’ names and affiliations ared hidden, therefore, the submissions should be anonymised). 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. Cases of plagiarism or multiple submissions will be subject to disciplinary action as per ACM rules and regulations. Selected papers might be invited to extend and improve their contributions to Special Issues under consideration.
