Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

IoT is generally characterized by real world and constrained devices with limited capacity and, therefore, consequential issues such as less reliability, security, and privacy. Cloud computing on the other hand deals mainly with the virtual world and has unlimited capabilities in terms of storage and processing power. Thus, the cloud and IoT are the main complementary aspects of the future Internet. IoT can benefit from the unlimited capabilities and resources of cloud computing. Similarly, cloud can benefit from IoT by extending its scope to deal with real world things in a more distributed and dynamic manner. 

A blockchain is a distributed database that is shared among the nodes of a computer network. Blockchain technologies allow the IoT devices to exchange collected data with each other or send them to a cloud server securely and reliably. The decentralized autonomy, tamper resistance, and security of blockchain technology propose a new solution to minimize the potential weaknesses and risks of IoT.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for the scientists to present their latest research results and perspectives for future work in the blockchain, IoT and cloud computing field.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Internet of Things;
  • Blockchain for Internet of Things;
  • Enterprise asset management with IoT and blockchain;
  • Facilities management with IoT and blockchain;
  • System engineering with IoT and blockchain;
  • IoT platform based on blockchain;
  • Cloud computing;
  • Data computing;
  • Machine Learning/Pattern recognition;
  • AI/ Signal processing.
