IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things
12-14 December 2016 // Reston, VA, USA

Special Session on Signal Processing for Internet-of-Things

Call for Papers


While the world of IoT begins to shape, the need for cheap, fast, low power and intelligent signal processing algorithms and systems emerges as a critical requirement. Such algorithms place great challenges on the overall system design because of the intrinsic limitations of the IoT. The aim of this special session is to provide a platform for researchers and designers to share and show case their original works on signal processing for present and even future Internet of Things. In addition, it will discuss the current open research challenges in IoT signal processing, to stimulate new research approaches and directions in this field.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Signal processing theory and practices for the IoT
  • Design and implementation of IoT signal processing systems
  • Array, multichannel and networked signal processing for the IoT
  • Signal processing for IoT edge intelligence (smart sensors)
  • Signal processing for IoT communications & networking
  • Signal processing for security and privacy of IoT
  • Low power signal processing for embedded IoT devices
  • Cross-layer signal processing optimization in IoT
  • Signal processing algorithms and platforms for IoT big data processing.
  • Signal processing in different IoT domains (health and AAL, automotive, energy, environment, mobility…)
  • Compressed sensing, deep learning, and sparse reconstruction for IoT
  • Machine Learning for IoT applications
  • Distributed information processing in IoT
  • Sparse signal processing for communications in IoT
