The Internet of Things (IoT) is a platform and a phenomenon that allows everything to process information, communicate data, analyze context collaboratively, and is in the service or individuals, organizations, and businesses. In the process of doing so, a large amount of data with different formats and content should be efficiently processed, quickly and intelligently, through advanced algorithms, techniques, models, and tools. This new paradigm is enabled by the maturity of several different technologies, including the Internet, wireless communication, cloud computing, sensors, big data analytics, and machine learning algorithms.
Big data is another paradigm to describe the processing of data to have it “make sense” to people using IoT. Big data has five characteristics: Volume, velocity, variety, veracity, and value. There are reports that businesses and research communities equipped with big data skills can provide additional incentives, opportunities, funding, and innovation to their long-term strategies. The new knowledge, tools, practices, and infrastructure produced will enable breakthrough discoveries and innovation in physical science, engineering, mobile services, medicine, business, education, Earth science, security, and risk analysis.
Coupling IoT and big data will provide new synergies in all aspects, including technological advances, innovative ideas, intelligent services, smart cities incentives, and useful applications. IoT that serves as data collection platforms, and big data, which is the gold mine at the backend, are awaiting big data analytics to discover valuable insights. These two areas of IoT and big data complement each other, working hand-in-hand naturally, enabling new services and applications for improving our daily lives, as well as for better city planning and disaster and emergency control.
The aim of this Special Issue is to compile and publish novel ideas relating to the areas of IoT and/or big data, especially on new applications and related technology when these two fields fuse. We would like to solicit contributions from researchers from different disciplines, industrial practitioners, government agencies, and academia to discuss new ideas, research questions, recent results, and future challenges in this converging R&D field of IoT and big data. Topics including, but not limited to, the following are sought for submission.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
