IEEE Computer seeks submissions for a February 2013 special issue on the Internet of Things.

The IoT promises to be the most disruptive technological revolution since the advent of the World Wide Web. Projections indicate that up to 100 billion uniquely identifiable objects will be connected to the Internet by 2020, but human understanding of the underlying technologies has not kept pace. This creates a fundamental challenge to researchers, with enormous technical, socioeconomic, political, and even spiritual consequences.

“The Internet of Things: The Next Technological Revolution” offers a forum for highlighting what the IoT could bring to the end user. The editors welcome articles that feature a critical evaluation of the state of the art, insightful analysis of deployed IoT systems, and roadmaps for future IoT research. Recommended topics for this special issue include but are not limited to:

  • The Design and Development Methodology for a user-centered IoT
  • The dynamics of Social Media and IoT
  • Community Programming for the IoT, including Citizen Science, Citizen Journalism, and Social Activism
  • Opportunistic Sensing, Big data, and the IoT
  • The impact of the IoT on the Future Networked Society

Articles should be understandable to a broad audience of computing science and engineering professionals. The writing should be practical and original, avoiding excessive focus on theory, mathematics, jargon, and abstract concepts. All manuscripts are subject to peer review on both technical merits and relevance to Computer’s readership. Accepted papers will be professionally edited for content and style.

Articles are due by 1 July 2012. For author guidelines and information on how to submit a manuscript electronically, visit
