INSERT-IoT: 1st INternational Symposium on EmeRging Technologies in the Era of 5G-based Internet of Things

International Symposium on Emerging Technologies in the Era of 5G-based Internet of Things

In conjunction with

5th International Conference on Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications (DependSys 2019)

November 12-15, 2019, Guangzhou, China

Scope:

The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) has empowered every device with storage, communication and computing ability to connect to the Internet, which results in the realization of a wide range of applications in almost every domain, including smart cities, smart transportation, smart healthcare and smart industry, to name a few. The common theme of all IoT applications is that every device in the network can be connected; as a result, these devices can communicate with each other. Recently, 5G networks have been introduced, having the ability to support different applications and devices due to the advantages they offer, including high data rate and reliability.

According to Gartner, about 21 billion IoT devices will be connected over the Internet by 2020. In order to provide connectivity to these devices, 5G is one of the best candidate technologies as it has the ability to support massive IoT devices due to the various advantages it provides. For instance, 5G can be used for highly mobile IoT applications including the Internet of Vehicles (IoV), which involve vehicles with high levels of mobility. This realization of 5G-based IoT networks faces several challenges which need to be addressed in order to make it a reality.

This symposium is soliciting original technical papers addressing the main research challenges in the direction of 5G-based IoT and its applications, including, but not being limited to:

Topics:

  • Network architecture design for 5G-based IoT networks.
  • Novel applications of 5G-based IoT networks, including IoV, smart cities, etc.
  • Use cases of 5G networks within IoT and IoV.
  • Software-Defined Networking (SDN) within IoT.
  • Device-to-Device (D2D) communications over 5G-enabled IoT networks.
  • Applications of blockchain within 5G-based IoT networks.
  • Security and privacy in 5G-based IoT networks.
  • Trust Management solutions for 5G-based IoT networks.
  • M2M communications over 5G networks.
  • Multimedia communications over IoT networks.
  • Integration of Information Centric Networking (CCN, NDN) within 5G-based IoT and IoV networks.
  • Performance analysis of edge/fog/cloud computing within 5G-based IoT and IoV networks.
  • Testbeds and validation.
  • Implementation of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) within IoT and IoV networks.
  • Social networks for 5G-based IoT and IoV networks.

Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not exceed 12 pages in Springer LNCS format (or up to 16 pages with the pages over length charge), including tables, figures, references and appendices.

Review and Publication of Manuscripts:

Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work. INSERT-IoT 2019 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference.
