Computer Communications invites manuscript submission in the area of Data Mining and Classification on Internet of Things (IoT) systems

1. Introduction/Overview

We’re currently shifting from the Information Age to the Intelligence Age. The Intelligence Age will be characterized by autonomous communication between intelligent devices that are sensitive to a person’s presence and respond by performing a specific task that enhances that person’s lifestyle.

In this perspective, the Internet of Things envisages a plethora of heterogeneous objects interacting with people and the physical environment.

Things are able to sense a user’s presence, movement and behavior, analyze that data in order to learn about that user, and then make an intelligent decision to perform a task based on the data.

The widespread diffusion of Internet of Things (IoT) represents a potentially huge amount of data to manage, store and explore. In this scenario, it requires more efficient and scalable data analysis methods and raises additional challenges on data mining and analytics, including preserving users’ security and privacy. Data management in IoT systems is an emerging research area and there is generally a deficiency to understand the suitable approaches to support this field. The success of an IoT systems depends on the efficient integration of its devices, sensors and data management techniques, as well as of novel protection techniques.

Therefore, this special issue tries to be a meeting point where researchers in Data Mining and Classification on IoT could have the opportunity to present current research results, and to look for new ways of transformation of the technological ecosystem in all its complexity, while to guaranteeing both technically and regulatory the neutrality of the future internet.

2. Why this topic is Important to Journal of Computer Communications readers

Computer Communications is an international and prestigious journal; in this perspective this SI, focusing on Data Mining and Classification on IoT, will be able to collect several scientific contributions from different research areas, since the IoT paradigm can be considered a quite consolidated but at the same time an emerging paradigm with a plethora of applications (e-health, cultural heritage, industrial, transportation, data mining, etc.) and consequently new technical flaws and threats of intrusions.

In this special section, we invite researchers from academia, industry, and government to discuss challenging ideas, novel research contributions, demonstration results, and standardization efforts on the Internet of Things and related areas.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:

IoT platforms for Big Data and Data analytics;
Environmental sensing and computing;
Personalized services in IoT systems;
Ambient-oriented technologies;
Ambient context modeling and reasoning;
Smart environments and applications;
Data Classification on IoT environments;
