Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We live in an interconnected world where different smart devices and people are connected together. The advancement of high-tech services and reliability, efficiency, speed, and accuracy of services have become crucial and popular in many aspects. The key elements include the Industrial Internet of Things, big data, and supply chains.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is a platform that allows a network of devices (sensors, smart meters, etc.) to communicate, analyze data, and process information collaboratively in the service of individuals or organizations. Big data (BD) have the core values of volume, velocity, variety, and veracity. Supply chains require modern advancement and support from the IIoT and big data to make all services efficient, fast, accurate, and reliable. These three can combine and work together to produce greater impacts and contributions, such as in the issues surrounding IIoT devices, their interconnectedness, and the services they may offer, including efficient, effective, and secure analysis of the data IIoT produces. Machine learning and other advanced techniques, models and tools, and issues of security and trust are often related to each other. IoT technologies may mature and become part of our everyday lives. Second, BD can be jointly used with machine learning, AI, and statistical and other advanced techniques, models, and methods, which can create value for the people and organizations adopting it. Forecasting, deep analysis, and analytics can help to identify weaknesses and make improvements based on different analyses. Third, suppliers can receive real-time updates on their stocks and demands, manufacturers and transport companies on the workloads, destination, and resource distributions, and customers on the delivery of their goods. Investors can make better decisions regarding their goods, resources, sales, and management, and supply chains can achieve a greater sustainable ecosystem with the help of IIoT and Big Data.

This Special Issue brings experts, practitioners, scientists, and decision makers from academia and industry together. Our aim is to foster a strong, lively, and well-connected international research community. We welcome innovative ideas, concepts, services, techniques, research outputs, and industrial applications. We will select the top authors from IIoTBDSC 2021 http://iiotbdsc.com/2021/, but we also welcome any authors with regular paper submissions.
