Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to submit your latest research results to our 
Special Section on Digital Twin for Industrial Internet of Things at 
IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics.


Industrial IoT can revolutionize industrial operation by interconnecting 
numerous machines, analytics sectors, and people at work. Through a deep 
cooperation of these components, industrial IoT brings new business 
opportunities and incredible productivity to applications such as smart 
robotics, future factories, and automotive manufacturing. The success of 
industrial IoT relies on the dynamic perception and intelligent 
decision-making, which is difficult to conceive due to the heterogeneous 
industrial devices, the complex industrial environment, and the 
sophisticated business operation strategy. Digital twin, as an emerging 
digitalization technology, provides a feasible solution to capture the 
complex industrial environment and make predictive strategies. It builds 
a virtual representation of industrial entities and manufacturing 
process, updated with the physical entities at a specified fidelity and 
frequency. For example, for industrial manufacturers, digital twins can 
create digital models of substantial machines, to help us make holistic 
understanding of how these machines work, make possible modification or 
predictive maintenance, and take effective actions before devoting much 
resources and expenditure.

The integration of digital twins and the industrial IoT enables a 
digital revolution of industrial automation. Researchers from industry 
and academia have focused on the virtualization and digitalization of 
industrial objects, while there are yet a number of challenges like 
high-fidelity modularity of digital twins, synchronization between 
digital and physical objects, interaction and networking among digital 
twins, scalable and resilient design of digital twin for industrial IoT. 
To fill the gap, this special section solicits high quality and 
unpublished work on recent advances in Digital Twins for Industrial IoT.
