Call for Papers: Emerging Networking Technology for Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is considered to be one of the most critical network forms that the next generation wireless network must support, which will increasingly affect human life and work. Network technology is one of the core technologies of the Internet of Things since it is responsible for connecting multiple devices of the Internet of Things efficiently to achieve the purpose of information transmission, data processing and resource sharing. In recent years, academia has proposed many valuable protocols, algorithms and solutions for the networking technology of Internet of Things, while industry and standardization organizations (such as 3GPP and IEEE) are also accelerating the standardization process of the Internet of Things. At present, the Internet of Things is expanding to the fields of vehicle network, smart city, smart home, space network and so on. In order to cope with the rapid development of application scenarios and business service requirements, Internet of Things networking needs to explore and introduce a series of emerging research results. Therefore, the special issue focuses on the emerging networking technologies for the next generation IoT.

Topics of interest for this special issue include but are not limited to:

  • New network architectures for IoT
  • Routing algorithms and protocols for IoT
  • Multiple access control technology for IoT
  • 5G enabling IoT networking technology
  • 802.11 enabling IoT networking technology
  • M2M and V2X Networking
  • IoT Standardization
  • Information theory and processing of IoT
  • Ad Hoc networking for IoT
  • Emerging PHY technology for IoT
  • Multi-media technology for IoT
  • Big data for IoT networking
  • AI/ML/DL assisted IoT
  • Cloud computing, fog computing, and edge computing for IoT
  • IoT   for   space   communications  and
  • networking
  • IoT as a service
  • Green Networking
  • Sensor Networking
