The IEEE iThings-2020 Conference was planned to be held in Rhodes Island, Greece, November 02-06, 2020. Given the COVID-19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions, as the safety of people is of the highest priority, the conference will be held virtually on November 02-06, 2020. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library after they are presented at the virtual conference. Information and instructions on how to prepare for a virtual presentation will be sent separately. Registration fees for the conference will be adjusted.
As an emerged promising networking model, the Internet-of-Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm to interconnect a multitude of heterogeneous physical objects and devices. The IoT significantly provides an umbrella for a series of critical building technologies including wireless sensor networks (WSNs), fifth generation (5G) networks, and RFID. The philosophy of the IoT is to develop an intelligent, dynamic, large-scale, and coherent network framework for a wide range of applications and industries. Due to its potential advantages and merits such as high reliability, good scalability and intelligent capacity, the IoT has attracted great attentions and interests from both academia and industry.
As the earliest IEEE international conference on Internet of Things, the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings-2020) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners from both academic and industrial communities to present state-of-the-art advances and innovations in theories, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, technologies and applications for the IoT, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future of everything interconnect via cyberspace.
