5G-IoT workshop

Computer-Society-LogoIEEE 5G-IoT Workshop

IEEE International Workshop on 5G in Internet of Things (5G-IoT)

To be held in conjunction with

The 42nd IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN 2017), 9-12 October 2017, Singapore

The Internet of Things (IoT) is envisaged as a network that allows everyone and everything to be connected anytime and anywhere. As a result of rapid increase in the number of connected devices, in the last decade, IoT has become one of the fastest areas of research and development among academia and industrial organizations. Different applications of IoT include intelligent transportation systems, smart cities, smart homes, smart factories, smart grid, precision agriculture, healthcare, to name just a few. In this context, wireless cellular technologies play an important role as a significant part of the IoT, since a main part of IoT communications is designed over cellular technologies. 5G is also expected to seamlessly operate with technologies such as Wi-Fi. Therefore, research efforts are needed to efficiently and effectively enable IoT over the next generation of mobile network (5G).

This workshop is expected to cover state-of-the-art research in different aspects of IoT and 5G systems. It will be a venue for researchers to present their papers on the recent development in theory, application, and implementation of 5G technologies in IoT scenarios.
