Call for Papers

The Internet of Things has become a core element of the Internet. Low-cost sensing and actuation are available to everyone. It allows seamless information exchange and networked interactions of physical and digital objects. This interconnectivity together with large-scale data processing, advanced machine learning, robotics and new fabrication techniques steadily brings innovation and business models of the digital space into the physical world. All of this indicates that we are on the brink of another industrial revolution.

ICIIT 2017 is seeking for original, high impact research papers on all topics related to the development and social adoption of the Internet of Things. Papers are peer-reviewed and selected based on technical novelty, the integrity of the analysis and social impacts and practical relevance.

Double Blind Review Process

All the submissions will be reviewed using a double-blind review process, in compliance with the submission policy and the scope of the conference. Eligible submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee (PC) on the basis of technical quality, relevance to ICIIT 2017, originality, significance, and clarity. Referees will not know the identity of authors when writing their reviews. In order to comply with ICIIT 2017’s double blind review process, authors should ensure that their identities cannot be easily determined. Please consider in particular the following points to ensure a double blind reviewing process:

  • Author name(s) should not appear in the paper (including the abstract)
  • Eliminate references to your institutions, your sponsors, and your unpublished work.
  • All author names must be inserted into the online submission form.
  • Delete author and institution information from document properties.


Paper reviewing process is double-blind, therefore before submitting the paper, please remove the names of authors, affiliations from the title page (As well as obvious references to the authors in the text, if there are any). Also please do not include the references, which are published by the authors to enable double blind review.

Submission Policy

The submitted paper should adhere to the double-blind review policy. Papers that do not comply with the Submission Guidelines will be rejected without review. Please note:
