*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are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts.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
·  Communication systems and network architectures for the IoT
·  IoT and Data Management
·  Security and privacy of IoT
·  Reliability of IoT
·  Disaster recovery in IoT
·  Applications of Internet of things
·  Emerging applications and interaction paradigms for everyday citizens
·  Big data and IoT
·  Self-organizing IoT
·  Cloud Computing and IoT
·  IoT and sustainable Growth

*Important Dates:*
Submission Date: January 6th. 2018
Notification to Authors: February 20th, 2018
Camera Ready Submission: March 5th, 2018

*Instructions for Authors*
Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers of up to 6 pages,
strictly following the IEEE Proceedings Templates. Submitted papers will be
peer-reviewed. At least one of the authors of any accepted paper should
register and present the paper at the workshop. Only the presented will
appear in the conference proceedings and will be submitted for IEEE to be
included in IEEE Xplore. Please submit your paper in PDF format via the
electronic submission system
