Call For Papers:

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology offers unprecedented opportunities to interconnect human beings as well as Machines and enable what is being known as Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication. Different sensors allow all humans, devices, machines (all known as ‘things’ in this context) to collect useful and maybe vital information and networks allow these things to communicate with each other to share these vital information. All this allow us to have an instrumented universe where accurate data is readily available to achieve 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 IoT will have major economic, social and environmental impacts; which will form the future sustainable growth of IoT. The IEEE International Workshop on Internet of Things: Networking Applications and Technologies (IoTNAT 2018) Symposium will be held in conjunction with The Second International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC 2018). The IoTNAT 2018 Symposium 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 Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts.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.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

·  Emerging concepts of IoT

·  Design methodologies for IoT

·  Novel services and applications of IoT to facilitate environmental responsibility

·  Green by Internet of Things

·  IoT and Social benefits/impact

·  IoT Economics

·  Emerging Internet of Things business models and process changes
