Call for Papers

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an exciting research area that brings together academia, industry, society, and governmental agencies due to the innovative advances connected devices and systems bring to society. As the IoT becomes more established and evolves, its focus widens from connecting new devices, services, and functionalities to the Internet to achieving seamless and autonomous interaction among heterogeneous systems and their users. Resulting networks may take advantage of intelligent and interoperable people, things, and services from both the physical and virtual worlds, creating distributed ecosystems that are capable of providing secure cross-domain interactions.

The International Conference on the Internet of Things is the premier gathering for visionary and groundbreaking research in IoT and closely related fields. It connects world-class researchers with leading industry experts to steer innovation in multiple IoT verticals (e.g., smart industry, smart cities, smart health, smart environment). Since its start in 2008, the conference has been backed by strong support from leading academic institutions and industry. We are pleased to announce its 14th edition and associated workshops, which will take place on November 19-22, 2024, in Oulu, Finland.

IoT 2024 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:

  • Scalable IoT architectures and systems, including interoperability frameworks and interfaces
  • Edge AI, Intelligent edge and computing continuum applications and technologies
  • Novel IoT communication technologies and protocols, including 5G beyond and 6G
  • Sustainability in IoT, including energy efficiency, water and CO2 footprints, battery-less and biodegradable computing
  • Small and large-scale pilots of IoT sensing, signal processing, actuation and analytics
  • Safety, security and privacy, including predictive maintenance, risk analysis, and Quality of Service in IoT and Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Digital Twins, databases and data maintenance for IoT
  • Human-computer interaction and interfaces with IoT-enhanced AR/VR/MR, Metaverse, and Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Large-Scale IoT analytics, real-world IoT deployments, testbeds, and datasets
  • Transient large-scale networks, including vehicular and other mobile networks
  • Novel IoT applications in industry and society, including manufacturing, agriculture, business processes, logistics, robotics, disaster response, and networked intelligent production systems
  • Business models, design principles, as well as development practices and processes for IoT systems and applications
  • Societal impacts and ethical implications of IoT

Papers for the technical track must be submitted via the HotCRP 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, plus unlimited pages for 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 are hidden. Therefore, the submissions should be anonymized). 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 per ACM rules and regulations. Selected papers might be invited to extend and improve their contributions to Special Issues under consideration. Based on reviews, some accepted papers may be recommended for presentation as a poster rather than a full paper presentation. These papers will be shared in conference companion proceedings.

We expect all submissions to adhere to the April 2023 ACM Policy on Authorship and use of large language models (LLMs) and generative AI.
