The Internet of Things (IoT) has revolutionized the Internet by including tiny devices and allow them to make Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and contribute to the collection and exchange of data. Driven from IoT systems, other systems have been emerged such as (Internet of Vehicles) IoV, IoEnergy, IoBlockchain, IoHealthcare, and the list continues. These systems have made our lives easier by utilizing new services and applications in a variety of fields. Based on Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) communications, such ultra sensitive systems face challenging issues that may influence their performance, such as the network QoS, the storage and manipulation of huge amounts of the collected data, and the energy scarcity that restrain the network lifetime and robustness, in addition to the security aspect of these critical systems. These challenges drive the need for solutions to meet requirements and provide sustainability of IoT networks.

This track “IoT, IoV, IoEnergy, IoHealthcare” aims at soliciting original research works in the broad areas of IoT and sensor technology including theoretical concepts, challenges, concrete applications, solutions, testing results, and future trends.
