The Internet of Things (IoT) is not only about connecting billions of devices to the Internet, but also about connecting people, services, applications, businesses, and infrastructures, among many others. What makes the IoT even more interesting is how data and technology can be blended to build sustainable IoT Data Analytics (IoTDA) applications. With billions of devices embedded in environments, buildings, vehicles, or products and continuously generating huge amounts of real-time data in many different formats, building sustainable IoTDA applications is becoming more challenging. One of the main hurdles is determining a suitable environment for processing IoT data. While it is envisioned that IoT applications would typically perform data processing on the cloud, a growing number of limitations in meeting applications’ demands is prompting researchers to investigate more efficient ways for processing data near IoT devices, particularly for applications that require a low-latency response. With the growing number of IoT devices that have very limited computational abilities, the emergence of micro-clouds (or fog nodes) near data sources to create sustainable IoTDA applications makes this very timely. The IoTDA 2020 workshop provides researchers and practitioners a venue to discuss possible new methods for building sustainable IoTDA applications and develop methods and techniques to investigate existing IoTDA limitations. In this context, the workshop’s ambition is to help in shaping a community of interest on the existing research opportunities and challenges resulting from performing data analytics for IoT applications. In addition, the workshop helps in bringing researchers and practitioners together to investigate innovative ideas or approaches to this new research challenge with the main focus on developing sustainable IoTDA applications, fostering collaborations, and exchanging points of view. This Special Issue in Sensors is planned in conjunction with IoTDA 2020 (https://sites.google.com/view/iotda) and will include peer-reviewed feature papers presented at IoTDA 2020. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Distributed intelligence for IoT data analytics;
- Heterogeneous IoT data analytics for fog computing;
- Data quality metrics for IoT applications;
- Distributed data analytics in fog computing;
- Big data IoT applications (e.g., smart city, manufacturing, e-health);
- Visual analytics algorithms for IoT applications;
- Middleware for IoT applications;
- Mobility and context-awareness for IoT applications;
- Process modeling for IoT applications;
- Storage, querying, and diffusion of IoT data;
- Data compression for constrained IoT Devices;
- QoS guarantee for IoT applications;
- Privacy, security, and trust issues in IoT applications;
- Recovery schemes for IoT applications;
- Internet of Things as a service (IoTaaS);
- IoT data centers' data analytics;
- IoT management capabilities for data centers

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
