Call for International Workshop on Security, Reliability, and Resilience in Internet of Things

Aims & Scope:

The Internet of Things ascribes the concept of millions of interconnected intelligent devices that can communicate with one another, which can be used to control the world around us. Technically speaking, the Internet of Things can be considered as embedded machines, which are usually attached to physical objects, providing a real-time, interactive view of the physical world. It envisions a world in which the sensor devices could exist in any form factor, anywhere, in which all the sensory data will be made available to the Internet, and be readily accessible to a wide range of applications. Therefore, it is the perfect time to invest research initiative, e.g., through our event, in the Internet of Things.

Challenges remain unsolved in deployment and operation of Internet of Things. First of all, heterogeneous network topologies in energy distribution network bring technical challenges in design and management of the sensor networks. Second, how to measure and analyze the traffic of Internet of Things in order to manage it more effectively still need to be studied. Third, quality of service necessities causes challenges for big data transmission optimization in Internet of Things. Forth, how to protect Internet of Things reliability and enhance system resilience in complex environments is one of the bottlenecks. Finally, resource constraints of Internet of Things increase security, safety and resilience concerns related to their utilization in real application.

In light of those challenges, this special collection intends to bring together state-of-art research and developments in topology management, transmission optimization, resource allocation, traffic analysis and measurement, security, safety and reliability of Internet of Things. We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as comprehensive review articles that seek to understand the various techniques addressing those challenges and providing future improvements for Internet of Things.

  • Efficient topology control and management protocols in Internet of Things
  • Traffic analysis and management of Internet of Things
  • Emerging technologies in topology management in Internet of Things
