A view of internet of things (IoT) is as a network of items embedded with sensors that are connected to the internet. It is a networked connection of objects including computers, smartphones, sensors, humans, etc. The application areas of the IoT for sharing and communicating information on the internet are including but not limited to smart technologies, industrial automation, mobile communication networks (3G/4G/LTE/5G), high performance computing (HPC), cloud computing, green communication and applications, wearable health care systems and environmental monitoring and control. This special issue aims to prove high-quality and unpublished research papers on all of the facets and challenges of IoT services and HPC technologies. High-quality review and survey papers are welcomed as well.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • System architectures for the IoT
  • Network-based computing: cloud computing; high performance computing
  • Mobile applications, services and integrations
  • Emerging IoT applications in 5G networks
  • Novel distributed techniques (e.g. edge/fog computing)
  • Software defined solutions for IoT
  • Energy efficiency and energy harvesting in IoT
  • Efficient resource allocation schemes, QoS, and QoE in IoT
  • Data processing and anomaly detection for IoT networks
