COINS- Call for Papers Deadline
On 6 Mar, 2020
The Intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) tsunami is affecting every aspect of our daily lives, ranging from smart cars, smart homes, smart cities, smart factories to smart health, and smart environments. Although IoT vastly expanded the possibilities to fulfill many of our needs, numerous challenges still should to be addressed in order to develop smart, consistent, suitable, safe, flexible and power-efficient systems. To enable this transformation and to better understand the untapped opportunities, the interdisciplinary landscape of IoT demands a large number of significant technological advancements in the hardware and software communities to come together and to synergize their efforts. COINS focuses on novel omni-layer techniques for smart IoT systems, by identifying new perspectives and highlighting impending research issues and challenges. In particular, this conference addresses all important aspects of novel IoT technologies from Connected Devices, to Edge/Fog, Cloud, and application, covering manufacturing, materials, CMOS and beyond-CMOS devices, architecture, embedded systems, reconfigurable hardware, network, cloud, Omni-layer artificial intelligence and machine learning, big data, emerging applications, as well as human-machine interaction. COINS also discusses the associated challenges that need to be overcome for achieving the goal of accuracy, privacy, reliability, and security. The three-day COINS event consists of a conference with plenary keynote speakers, invited papers, regular papers, panels, special hot-topic sessions, and workshops.
Authors are invited to submit their original manuscripts written in English via online submission platform of Easychair. Each manuscript should include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should conform to IEEE format: single-spaced, double-column, US letter page size, 10-point size Times Roman font, up to 6 pages. In order to conduct a blind review, no indication of the authors’ names should appear in the manuscript, references included.
Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered to the Conference by the time the camera-ready paper is submitted; at least one of the authors is also expected to attend the conference and present the paper.
All regular papers go through a double-blind peer-review process. Submitted manuscripts s are carefully reviewed by at least two reviewers and rated considering Relevance, Originality, Technical Quality, Significance, and Presentation. Based on the corresponding score/comments given by reviewers, program and track chairs will decide if a paper can be accepted as a full regular paper (with 20 minutes oral presentation) or as a short paper (with poster presentation). It should be noted that only original papers should be submitted. Authors are highly encouraged to carefully study IEEE ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings. All the submitted papers will be checked by iThenticate Platform (Plagiarism Detection Software) and those papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.
