Internet of Things (IoT) over Future Internet

Call for Papers

Nowadays, miscellaneous sensing devices are weaved into the daily fabric of our lives. Moreover, in near future everyday objects surrounding us including such sensors will become online (i.e., readable and controllable via Internet). This notion which is termed Internet of Things (IoT) will drastically change our ways in interacting with real world by providing a new ecosystem of information. Meanwhile, current Internet is facing various challenges such as exponential growth in bandwidth demand. The realization of IoT is also putting current Internet under great pressure due to its unprecedented scale—according to some forecasts, IoT, an integral part of the “future” Internet, will consist of over 50 billion connected things. To cope with such bandwidth demand and complexity as well as to solve other issues (e.g., seamless wireless access and mobility support and security) with current Internet, new architectures for the future Internet have been proposed (e.g., information/content centric network architectures and cloud-computing centric network architectures). However, several questions still remain: how IoT will be supported in the future Internet (i.e., when deploying large-scale wireless sensor networks do we need to fully integrate embedded sensors with Internet or use dedicated gateways to bridge sensors and Internet similar to state-of-the-art technologies)? This special issue solicits original contributions on all facets of IoT in future Internet and related topics.

The seventh International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN 2015) http://www.icufn.org/main/ is organized by KICS (The Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences) with the technical cosponsorship of IEEE Communications Society and IEICE-CS. Building on the success of the last six years, ICUFN 2015 will serve as a forum for researchers and technologists to identify and discuss challenges and opportunities in the area of ubiquitous and future networking. The authors of selected papers of ICUFN 2015 within the scope of this special issue will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers. These extended papers must contain considerable amount (a minimum of 30%) of new material and will be subjected to a new round of reviews before being published in this special issue. This special issue also is open to contributions from outside the conference with subjects aligned with the scope of the special issue.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Integration of sensor networks and Internet
  • Novel sensor network applications/architectures for future Internet
  • Novel Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) applications/platforms
  • Future Internet architectures for IoT
  • Information centric networking for IoT
  • Cloud centric networking and service for IoT
  • 4/5G and next-generation WLAN/WPAN technologies for IoT
  • Software Defined Networking (SDN) for IoT
  • Energy transfer/harvesting/management in IoT

Authors can submit their manuscripts via the Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ijdsn/iotf/.
