Internet of Multimedia Things (IoMT): Opportunities, Challenges and Solutions

This issue is now closed for submissions.


Internet of Things (IoT) characteristics support multimedia communications; however, multimedia applications are bandwidth-demanding and delay-sensitive. The rapid growth of multimedia traffic in IoT has led to the innovation of new techniques to meet its requirements. Internet of multimedia things (IoMT) devices require higher bandwidth, larger memory, and faster computational resources to process data. Typical communications include multipoint-to-point and multipoint-to-multipoint scenarios. Real-world multimedia applications include emergency response systems, traffic monitoring, crime inspection, smart cities, smart homes, smart hospitals, smart agriculture, surveillance systems, internet of bodies (IoB), and industrial IoT (IIoT). Dynamic networks, heterogeneous devices and data, strict Quality of Service (QoS), and delay sensitivity and reliability requirements over resource-constrained IoMT pose significant challenges for multimedia communication in IoT.

This Special Issue aims to bring together academic and industrial researchers to explore opportunities for IoMT, study its impact on the aforementioned challenges, and propose viable solutions. We welcome both original research and review papers.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • IoMT architectures and technologies
  • IoMT Applications
  • IoMT communications and computing
  • IoMT Big Data analytics
  • Energy-critical IoMT
  • IoMT routing protocols
  • IoMT MAC protocols
  • Machine Learning for IoMT
  • IoMT security
  • SDN-based IoMT solutions
  • Cross-layer protocols for IoMT
  • Use cases for IoMTs for Smart City
