From a wireless communications and networking perspective, the Internet of Things idea raises several challenging issues to address and technological nodes to untie.
An attempt to provide a partial answer to these and many other related questions will form the main scope of the present special issue. More specifically we are interested in the wireless communications and networking aspects involved by the introduction of the Internet of Things concept, and therefore solicit papers covering a variety of topics including, but not limited to:
•Internet of Things infrastructures, communication systems, network architectures
•Mobile Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks
•Network management, distributed processing (e.g. access, scheduling, radio resource management, etc.), scalability, and cooperation issues in integrated wired-wireless scenarios for the Internet of Things
•Internet of Things enabling ubiquitous and wireless technologies
•Security and privacy management for wirelessly communicating "things" and users
•RFID technology and RFID middleware
•Electromagnetic aspects related to the Internet of Things
•Machine-to-machine and machine-to-network communications in the presence of wireless links
•Inter-vehicle communications and seamless connectivity
•Location and tracking through navigation sensors
•Internet of Things applications in research projects
•Standardization and regulation (e.g. spectrum allocation and radio frequency exposure protection) issues for the Internet of Things
Submission of original contributions is solicited on the above topics as well as others relevant to the "Internet of Things" concept.
