Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Internet services and networking architectures have evolved steadily to accommodate technological changes and the development of novel services on the Internet. With the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), there is now a complete entanglement of the Internet into different realms of our daily lives. Things are becoming increasingly mobile and heterogeneous in terms of computational and storage capabilities, as well as in terms of power. Furthermore, new IoT technologies are expanding the reach of services over large distances, and into new realms, such as space.

These new possibilities open up a myriad of new business possibilities, and in the context of Industrial IoT (IIoT), they are the basis for a new Industrial Revolution. IIoT data will be generated from a gazillion smart devices over very large distances, sustaining a global and wide digitalization, greater efficiency, and improved productivity, among other benefits.

This Special Issue is aimed at archiving the most recent developments on networking architectures and protocols for Industrial IoT. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

-   Networking protocol performance;

-   Protocol interoperability aspects;

-   Automated IoT onboarding mechanisms;

-   Determinism in IIoT wireless environments;

-   Semi-automated brownfield devices integration;

-   Delay Tolerant Networking in IIoT;

-   Information-centric networking in IIoT;

-   Serverless cloud-edge computing mechanisms;

-   AI operationalization in IIoT;

-   Decentralized security mechanisms for IIoT.

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 1000 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.
