The Fifth IEEE International Workshop on Internet of Things: Networking Applications and Technologies (IoTNAT 2019)

in conjunction with

The 4th International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC 2019)

Rome, Italy. June 10-13, 2019

(Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Italy Section)


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 International Workshop on Internet of Things: Networking Applications and Technologies (IoTNAT 2019) Symposium will be held in conjunction with The Second International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC 2019). The IoTNAT 2019 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 Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts.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

Papers selected for presentation will appear in the IoTNAT and FMEC Proceedings, which will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Papers must be 6 pages max in IEEE format, 10pt font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format, single space, A4 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.
