Internet of Things

Call for Book Chapters


The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm promises to make “things” 
including consumer electronic devices or home appliances such as medical 
devices, fridge, cameras, and sensors part of the Internet environment. 
This paradigm opens the doors to new innovations that will build novel 
type of interactions among things and humans and enables the realization 
of smart cities, infrastructures, and services for enhancing the quality 
of life and utilization of resources.

To realize the full potential of IoT paradigm, researchers and 
practitioners need to address several challenges and develop suitable 
conceptual and technological solutions for tackling them. These include 
development of scalable architecture, moving from closed systems to open 
systems, dealing with privacy and ethical issues involved in data 
sensing, storage, processing, and actions, designing interaction 
protocols, and autonomic management.


The primary purpose of this book is to capture the state-of-the-art in 
Internet of Things, its applications, architectures, and technologies. 
The book also aims to identify potential research directions and 
technologies that will facilitate insight generation in various domains 
from science, industry, business, and consumer applications. We expect 
the book to serve as a reference for larger audience such as systems 
architects, practitioners, developers, new researchers and graduate 
level students.

Important Dates - Proposed

Chapter Proposal: You are invited to submit a 1-2 pages proposal to 
describing the topic of your chapter. The proposal should include the 
chapter organization, anticipated number of pages of the final 
manuscript and brief biography of authors.  We plan to follow the 
timeline given below:

·         Proposal deadline: April 15, 2015 (Early expression of 
interest is highly encouraged)

·         Notification of proposal acceptance: May 15, 2015

·         Full draft chapter submission: Aug 15, 2015

·         Chapter review report to authors: Sep 15, 2015

·         Final version submission: Oct. 15, 2015

Early submission is highly appreciated as the editors would like to have 
progressive dialogue and work with prospective authors to bring out a 
book of wide appeal.

If we receive more than one proposal for a chapter on the same topic, 
the editors may request authors to collaborate to develop an integrated 

Manuscript Submission

Each accepted chapter should have about 20-35 A4 pages. We expect to 
deliver CRC of the book to the publisher. A MS Word template will be 
provided later.
