EXPLORING CACHING, COMMUNICATIONS, COMPUTING AND SECURITY FOR THE EMERGING SMART INTERNET OF THINGS
CALL FOR PAPERS
It is estimated that more than 50 billion devices will be interconnected by 2020, and the generated data traffic will grow by another 1000 times. The evolution of Internet-of-things (IoT) paradigm not only comes with challenges to the research and industrial communities on finding efficient solutions for massive connectivity, but also poses a profound opportunity to reshape the current IoT architectures by exploring the inherent nature of the huge number of smart devices with caching, communications, computing and security capabilities.
Smart IoT cannot be simply regarded as an upgrade of current IoT by just adding to or replacing sensors/actuators/RFID tags in smart devices. It should be redesigned from the physical layer to the application layer in a bottoms-up way. In the context of smart IoT, communication is essential to guarantee end-to-end connectivity. Together with communications technology, other features, such as caching, computing and security should be fully utilized to complement the current study of IoT. The resulting new structure, by utilizing these inherent features, may have a wider application over current infrastructure-based cellular networks and traditional sensor-based networks by adopting all these features. However, new features also create unexpected problems which cannot be directly addressed through the traditional approaches designed for low-rate IoT systems. Thus, how to effectively utilize existing capabilities to address the fundamental challenges in smart IoT remains challenging. Despite the evolution of IoT, some fundamental problems are still open and require immediate investigation.
This Feature Topic (FT) aims at providing timely and comprehensive overviews of the current state-of-the art in terms of fundamental theoretical innovations and technological advances towards exploiting smart caching, communications, computing and cybersecurity for smart IoT networks. Topics include, but are not limited to:
· Smart mobile computing, edge computing, cloud computing for IoT
· Smart content caching, pushing, and distribution for IoT
· Advances in technology and architecture for smart IoT
· Smart data collection, sensing, caching, processing, aggregation, communication, and analysis for IoT
· Software-defined solutions and network functions virtualization for IoT
· Efficient resource allocation, QoS, and QoE of IoT
· Novel authentication, access control and intrusion detection for smart IoT
· Novel cryptography algorithms for content privacy for IoT
· Experimental results, prototypes and testbed of IoT
· Energy efficiency and energy harvesting in IoT
· Emerging IoT applications in 5G networks such as ITS, CPS, smart grid, smart city, smart health, etc.
· Standardization of caching, communications, computing and security of IoT.
Articles should be tutorial in nature, with the intended audience being all members of the communications technology community. They should be written in a tutorial style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article. Mathematical equations should not be used (in justified cases up to three simple equations are allowed). Articles should not exceed 4500 words (from introduction through conclusions, excluding figures, tables and captions). Figures and tables should be limited to a combined total of six. The number of archival references is recommended not to exceed 15. In some rare cases, more mathematical equations, figures, and tables may be allowed, if well-justified. In general, however, mathematics should be avoided; instead, references to papers containing the relevant mathematics should be provided. Complete guidelines for preparation of the manuscripts are posted at http://www.comsoc.org/commag/paper-submission-guidelines. Please submit a PDF (preferred) or MSWORD formatted paper via Manuscript Central (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/commag-ieee). Register or log in, and go to Author Center. Follow the instructions there. Select "August 2018 / Exploring Caching, Communications, Computing and Security for the Emerging Smart Internet of Things " as the Feature Topic category for your submission.
