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 43rd IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN 2018), 1-4 October 2018, Chicago, USA

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network that allows everyone and everything to be connected anytime and anywhere. In the last decade, IoT has become one of the fastest areas of research and development among academia and industrial organizations due to a rapid increase in the number of connected devices. Various applications of IoT include Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITSs), 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 the IoT communications is designed over cellular technologies. By 2020, approximately 50 billion connected devices and more than 200 billion connected sensors are expected to be supported by the next generation of mobile networks (5G). The improvements introduced by 5G are expected to affect mobile broadband and smartphone experience, and also to become essential for supporting the expected increase in the IoT connected devices. 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 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.
