Submission Deadline: 01 March 2020
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Green Internet of Things.
Internet of Things (IoT) is a key enabler for many modernized applications, from marine monitoring to outer space exploration. However, complicated operations (such as device interconnection, data transmission and service optimization) will consume substantial energy in contrast with the limited energy storage of IoT devices. To improve architectural sustainability and ultimately reduce systemic cost, the energy efficient (green) design of IoT has become more prominent. In particular, with the continuous penetration of advanced information and communications (ICT) technologies (such as VR/AR, UAVs, and automobiles), our smart world is being surrounded by big IoT data that craves energy-efficient caching, computing, networking and securing.
Some emerging techniques (e.g., edge computing, SDN/ICN, artificial intelligence) are thought to have promise with novel approaches to overcome the sustainability limitations of current IoT systems. However, fully utilizing these techniques from communication, data processing, and computing etc., to improve the energy efficiency of IoT still faces many fundamental challenges. Some open issues require immediate studies, such as:
Therefore, the aim of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to solicit original submissions with novel contributions on Green IoT, from the perspective of energy efficiency and reducing energy consumption. Contributions by the applications of emerging technologies (e.g., social computing, big data computing, fog computing, edge computing, emotional computing, SDN) to address the energy efficiency issue of IoT are also welcome.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
