Special Issues
Special Issue on Smart Edge Computing and IoT
Submission Date: 2020-08-30

The evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the nature of edge-computing devices. End nodes have to support, in place, an increasing range of functionality: multi-sensory data processing and analysis, complex systems control strategies, and, ultimately, artificial intelligence. These new capabilities will enable disruptive innovation in wearable and implantable biomedical devices, autonomous insect-sized drones, autonomous smart environmental sensing, safety-critical real-time applications and structural health monitoring, and more. For this special issue, we are seeking contributions on IoT smart edge-computing architectures, systems, and related hardware-software design approaches. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Hardware-software design approaches for smart edge processing Heterogeneous systems-on-chip and architecture for energy-efficient smart edge processing Low-power analog and mixed signal computing, in-memory computing, and in-sensor computing Edge machine-learning architectures dealing with sensor and signal variabilities Neuro-symbolic and brain- and bio-inspired computing paradigms for edge processing IO and peripherals for energy-efficient interfaces in edge-computing systems Edge processing for biomedical IoT systems and human-machine interaction Smart edge IoT devices for structural health monitoring and predictive maintenance Real-time and safety-critical smart edge sensors for industrial IoT Submitted papers must include new significant research-based technical contributions in the scope of the journal. Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission. Extended versions of published conference papers (to be included as part of the submission together with a summary of differences) are welcome, but they must have at least 40% new impacting technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version, and there should be less than 50% verbatim similarity as reported by a tool (such as CrossRef). Guidelines concerning the submission process and LaTeX and Word templates can be found here. While submitting through ScholarOne, please select this special-issue option. As per TC policies, only full-length papers (at least 12 pages and according to TC submission requirements) can be submitted to special issues, and each author’s bio should not exceed 150 words. Please note the following important dates: Submission Deadline: August 30, 2020 Reviews Completed: October 25, 2020 Major Revisions Due: November 30, 2020 Reviews of Revisions Completed: December 15, 2020 Notification of Final Acceptance: January 1, 2021 Publication Materials for Final Manuscripts Due: January 15, 2021 Publication: March 2021 Please address all correspondence regarding this special issue to Lead Guest Editor Luca Benini ( Guest Editors Luca Benini ETH Zürich, Università di Bologna Taekwang Jang ETH Zürich Abbas Rahimi UC Berkeley Simone Benatti Università di Bologna Corresponding Topical Editor Roman Lysecky University of Arizona, Tucson
