Call for Papers


EAI FoNeS-IoT 2022 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2022.
Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chat, virtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences.


Over the last few years we have witnessed a rapid growth in Internet of Things (IoT) that provides ubiquitous connectivity between physical components and cyber space. These advances have been possible as a result of the convergence of intelligent computing techniques, software and hardware technologies. This will ease the significant growth of new devices and smart things that need to be connected to the Internet through a variety of wireless technologies. Besides, IoT-enabled smart cities aim to improve the quality of life of citizens in several areas such as energy usage, healthcare, environment, water and transportation. These emerging services open the way to new domains, services and business models beyond the traditional mobile Internet.  The connectivity of billions of IoT devices opens up several requirements in terms of Quality of Service, scalability, reliability, real-time services and energy efficiency. Thus, it is becoming increasingly important to develop adaptive, robust, scalable, reliable solutions for  IoT applications. These are only some examples of the challenges that are of interest to researchers in Forthcoming Networks and Sustainability in the IoT Era (FoNeS-IoT).
