*“Beyond the Internet of Things: Everything Interconnected”***


*Jordi Mongay Batalla, National Institute of Telecommunications, Poland*

The networked connection of people, things, processes and data is called 
the Internet of Everything (IoE). The IoE provides high revenues to many 
companies due to the increase of work efficiency, as well as to the 
increase of security and comfort of the workers. The sector-specific 
infrastructures, where the IoE is successfully implemented are smart 
grid, critical infrastructure management and smart meters, among others. 
Nonetheless, the increase of revenues is going to multiply in public and 
private sectors due to IoE deployment together with a big contribution 
to the well-being of people. IoE is based on near Internet ubiquity and 
includes three types of connections: machine-to-machine, 
person-to-machine and person-to-person. Machine-to-Machine is closely 
related to security, including civil security (e.g., security in the 
road, disaster alert, etc.) and military security. Person-to-Machine 
communication brings an unquestionable increase of well-being in home 
automation systems but also is fundamental for intelligent parking, 
patient monitoring and disaster response, among others. At last, 
person-to-person connection is already changing the inter-personal 
relations, which are becoming more multimedia and located in the social 
networks. IoE will increase the scenarios of person-to-person networked 
communication as, for example, telework, networked learning and 
telemedicine. In this context, this book aims atpresentingthe current 
state-of-the-art research and future trends on various aspects of IoE. 
The major subjects of the book will cover methodologies, modeling, 
analysis and newly introduced mobile technologies.

Topics of interest include but are /_not limited_/ to:

•Emerging trends of context awareness in the IoT

•Ambient information gathering and modeling

•Context reasoning/extraction from large-scale data and signals

•Crowd sensing

•Energy efficiency

•IoT interfaces

•Personal activity recognition

•QoS in the heterogenous IoT

•Emotion recognition

•Personal/M2M awareness in environments

•Active authentication

•IoT through terrestria/satellite networks

•E/M-health applications and architectures

•Social information understanding/enhancing social interaction among 
peers/mobile social networks

•User mobility patterns

•VANets in IoT architectures

•IoT programming and APIs issues/concepts and architectures

We strongly welcome _other topic suggestions,_ dealing with//IoE./

Sections of the above mentioned topics will be hosted under the 
following sections:

*Section I — Introduction and Applications of IoE*

*Section II — Architectures and systems of IoE*

*Section III— IoE with 5G mobile technologies*

*Section IV— IoE and FOG computing applications*

*Section V— IoE-cloud oriented systems*

*Section VI— IoE smart resource management frameworks*

*Section VII— Big Data frameworks in IoE environments*

*Section VIII— Performance Evaluation of IoE-related systems and
