IEEE Internet of Things Journal Special Issue on: Software 
Engineering Research and Practices for the Internet of 
( /ieee-iotj-si-serp4iot)

IoT systems are composed of software systems that enable 
solutions for device connectivity, device management, data 
management, application development, and advanced 
analytics for/from connected IoT systems. Software 
engineering is vital for IoT to design systems that are 
secure, interoperable, modifiable, and scalable. However, 
there is no consensus of crucial questions like what are 
the best practices for developing projects for IoT, how to 
select the best architecture, which communications 
protocols are the most suitable, and what are the best 
practices in terms of security. Topics of interest include 
(but not limited to):

• Software engineering (SE) practices in IoT projects
• Software security and reliability in IoT products
• Architecture and design models and techniques in IoT 
• Software quality management in IoT projects
• Usability aspects in IoT projects
• Software development tools, platforms, and environments 
for IoT Teaching
• SE practices in industrial IoT (IIoT) SE practices in 
domain-specific IoT projects, e.g., smart city, retail, 
logistics, healthcare, transportation, utilities SE 
methods and techniques for IoT projects
• Risk and valuation techniques for software development 
in IoT projects
• Big data and analytics in IoT projects
• Context-awareness
• Model-based SE for IoT projects
• SE practices for IoT projects
• Software orchestration for IoT
• IoT Communication protocols
• Robotics
• Green and eco-friendly software for IoT
• Context-aware software for IoT
• Local, edge, and cloud based IoT services
