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

*IoTSMS 2018.*

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unpublished manuscripts.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

*Important Dates*

Submission Date: *5 July 2018*
Notification to Authors: 20 August 2018
Camera Ready Submission: 5 September 2018

*Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings*

We are pleased to invite you to submit original contributions to IoTSMS
2018 via the official submission system at 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.

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11"
two-column format. All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted
electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full paper must not exceed the
stated length (including all figures, tables and references). Submitted
papers must present original 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.

*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 represent original
unpublished research work.
