Special Issue "Sensing and Actuating Tasks in IoT Environments"
A special issue of Actuators (ISSN 2076-0825).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: Internet of Things; edge computing; artificial intelligence; deep learning; optimization; task scheduling; complex problem solving
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging paradigm that inspires industries to develop intelligent and autonomous systems based on Internet-connected devices. The IoT comprises heterogeneous devices, applications, and platforms using multiple communication technologies to connect the Internet to ubiquitously provide seamless services. Leveraging cloud computing, the IoT can be supported to apply not only large-scale and personalized data, but also artificial-intelligence (AI) algorithms based on offloading AI approaches to high-performance servers to work with huge volumes of data in the cloud. Through the task scheduling of IoT services, various continuous scenarios can be deployed for controlling actuators to update the IoT environment.
Contributions from all fields related to Internet of Things are welcome to this Special Issue, and particularly the following:
- theory, applications, case studies, and project reports related with emerging IoT standard protocols, frameworks, and platforms;
- IoT and edge-computing solutions in smart spaces such as homes, buildings, factories, farms, and cities;
- distributed edge computing for compuational offloading;
- real-time inference and prediction approaches in edge computing;
- controlling based on AI approaches;
- energy optimization in smart spaces;
- task scheduling for intelligent IoT services;
- complex problem solving based on IoT and edge computing.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. Actuators 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 1600 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.
