Special Issue on 5G-Enabled Internet of Things, Applications and Services
Elsevier Computer Networks

The Internet of Things (IoT) is shaping the evolution of the future
Internet. According to the vision underlying the IoT, the next step in
increasing the ubiquity of the Internet, after connecting people
anytime and everywhere, is to connect inanimate objects. By providing
objects with embedded communication capabilities and a common
addressing scheme, a highly distributed, ubiquitous and dense network
of seamlessly connected heterogeneous devices is formed, which can be
fully integrated into the current Internet and mobile networks, thus
allowing for the development of new intelligent applications and
services available anytime, anywhere, by anyone and anything. Many
applications with high social and business impact fall under the IoT
umbrella. Many application areas are emerging such as public safety,
smart city environments, personal healthcare, smart grid,
surveillance, building automation, intelligent transportation, smart
vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles systems, smart agriculture and
aquaculture, as well as tactile Internet applications. Nevertheless,
it is expected that new areas will emerge once the enabling
technologies reach a stable state. In this context, the upcoming 5G
wireless network technology promises to be responsive, fast and power
efficient. The combination of speed, responsiveness and reach of 5G
will provide both opportunities and challenges for new IoT
applications and services, relying on software defined networks within
virtualized environments with the aim to provide optimal performance
targets regarding latency, bandwidth, resilience and energy

The goal of this special issue is to bring together state-of-the-art
research contributions that describe original and unpublished work
addressing IoT applications and services within the 5G context.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

- Architectures, protocols and algorithms for an efficient
interconnection of smart objects, both between themselves and with the
Internet within the 5G context.
- Resource description, provisioning, scheduling, allocation and
orchestration for IoT-enabled infrastructures, including the use of
reinforcement learning approaches to address the dynamicity,
stochasticity and uncertainty of emerging environments and
- Real life modeling approaches regarding applications, objects' and
users' interdependencies and decision making, including application
workload profiling, user behavior modeling, utility maximization, QoS
- The creation of value-added services in cross-domain applications,
especially open and interoperable, enabled by the interconnection of
things / machines / smart objects, in such a way that they can be
integrated with current and new business and development processes.
- The support of a virtualized IoT, --based on the concepts of
virtualized components and functions within dense and heterogeneous
environments, as expected for the massive growth of IoT 5G services
and applications.
- Security, privacy and trust for IoT applications and services, for
ensuring that the provided services will protect the users' data,
provide guarantees that no malicious users/devices will affect the
system decisions and that the IoT applications will be secure and
privacy-preserving "by design".

* Important Dates *

Paper Submission Due: 30 September 2019
First Round Notification: 15 December 2019
Revised Paper Submission: 15 January, 2020
Final author notification: 15 March, 2020
Tentative Publication Date: 2nd quarter, 2020

* Submission guidelines *

All received submissions will be sent out for peer review by three
experts in the field and be evaluated with respect to the relevance to
this special issue, level of innovation, depth of contribution, and
quality of presentation. The Guest Editors will make an initial
determination of the suitability and scope for all submissions. Papers
that either lack originality or clarity in presentation will not be
sent for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such
cases. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by other
journals, publications or conferences.

Authors should follow the Computer Networks manuscript format
described below at the journal site:
The submission must be clearly written and in excellent English, with
a maximum page limit of 20 pages. If some of the content of the paper
was published in a conference, the submitted manuscript must be a
substantial extension of the conference paper. In this case, authors
are also required to submit their published conference article and a
summary document explaining the enhancements made in the journal
version. Manuscripts should be submitted online through, with "SI: IoT SOS"
selected as the article type.
