*The Fifth International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems,
Management and Security (IoTSMS 2018) *
Valencia, Spain. October 15-18, 2018.

*IoTSMS 2018 CFP*

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers unprecedented opportunities
to interconnect human beings as well as Machine-to-Machine (M2M), whereby
sensors and networks allow all ‘things’ to communicate directly with each
other to share vital information allowing us to have an instrumented
universe where accurate data is readily available to inform optimal
decision making. The IoT is about to enable a range of new capabilities and
services far beyond today’s offerings. It will fundamentally change how
people go about their lives. According to Gartner, the number of objects
connected to the Internet is set to reach 20 billion by 2020. Cisco
estimates the number will be close to 26 billion objects by 2020. Others
believe the actual number will be even higher with the assumption that any
object with a simple micro controller and on-off switch will be connected
to the Internet in the near feature. The scale of the IoT is set to have a
major economic, social and environmental impacts; the intersection of which
forms the future sustainable growth. The IEEE Internet of Things: Systems,
Management and Security (IoTSMS 2018) aims at soliciting original ideas on
the broad area of IoT including challenges and opportunities, concepts and
applications and future trends. The Symposium aims to facilitate
discussions among academics and IoT practitioners and make positive
contributions to the field. Authors are invited to submit original,
unpublished manuscripts. Submitted papers should be in accordance with IEEE
format, and will be reviewed by at least two expert reviewers in terms of
relevance, originality, contribution, correctness, and presentation.
Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all
major areas, which include, but not limited to:

* Emerging concepts of IoT Systems
* Architectures of IoT systems
* Machine-to-Machine Communication and IoT

We are pleased to invite you to submit original contributions to IoTSMS
2018 via the official submission system at https://easychair.org/confe
rences/?conf=iotsms2018. This can include, technical and experimental,
theoretical, conceptual, or a survey. All submissions will be peer-reviewed
on the basis of relevance, originality, importance and clarity.
*Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings*Manuscripts should be prepared in
10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format (IEEE Templates

unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other
conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be
rejected without review. Also submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be
considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information
or clarification.

All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted
papers will appear in the IoTSMS Proceeding and to be submitted to IEEE
Xplore for inclusion. The proceedings are also submitted for indexing to EI
(Compendex), Scopus and other indexing services like DBLP.

Submitted papers must include original work, and must not be under
consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of regular
papers must not exceed 8 pages and must follow the IEEE paper format.
Please include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and
fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted
papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted
papers that are deemed of good quality but that could not be accepted as
regular papers will be accepted as short papers. Length of short papers
*Important Dates*Submission Date: *10 June 2018*
Notification to Authors: 20 August 2018
Camera Ready Submission: 5 September 2018
*Journal Special Issues*Selected papers from the presented papers will be
invited to submit an extended version to number of journals. Papers will be
selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the
Journal’s theme. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must
