Call for Papers: *IEEE Transactions on Computers*

Special issue on
"*/Smart Edge Computing and IoT/*”

Submission deadline: August 30, 2020


We are pleased to inform you about a Special Issue titled "*/Smart Edge 
Computing and IoT/*"  that will be published the "*IEEE Transactions on 
Computers *".

Based on your expertise in this field, we encourage you to submit new 
significant research-based technical contributions whithin the scope of 
this journal.

Scope and topics
The evolution of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) is changing the nature of 
edge-computing devices. End-nodes have to support, in-place, an 
increasing range of functionality: multi-sensory dataprocessing and 
analysis, complex systems control strategies and, ultimately, 
artificialintelligence. These new capabilities will enable disruptive 
innovation in wearable and implantablebiomedical devices, autonomous 
insect-sized drones, autonomous smart environmental 
sensing,safety-critical real-time applications and structural health 
monitoring, and more.In this special issue, we are seeking contributions 
on IoT Smart Edge Computing Architectures,Systems and related 
hardware-software design approaches.

Topics of interest include, but are
As per TC policies, only full-length papers (at least 12 pages and 
according to TC submission requirements) can be submitted to special 
issues/sections and each author’s bio should not exceed 150 words

not limited to:

• Hardware-Software design approaches for smart edge processing

• Heterogeneous systems-on-chip and architecture for energy efficient 
smart edge processing

• Low power analog and mixed signal computing, in-memory computing, 
in-sensor computing

• Edge Machine-learning architectures dealing with sensor and signal 

• Neuro-symbolic, brain- and bio-inspired computing paradigms for edge 

• IO and Peripherals for energy efficient interfaces in edge computing 

• Edge processing for biomedical IoT systems and Human Machine Interaction

• Smart edge IoT devices for structural health monitoring and predictive 

• Real-time and safety-critical smart edge sensors for industrial IoT.
