Welcome

Complementing the topics of Global IoT Summit 2017, the 1st IEEE Workshop on Internet of Energy Neutral Things (IoENT 2017) will bring together members from different research communities and industrial practitioners to systematically explore the challenges, issues and opportunities in the research, design, and engineering of energy-harvesting and energy-neutral techniques for the Internet of Things. Wireless sensing devices are key to the IoT paradigm, however, ensuring long term operation is still one of the most important challenges. Ultra-low power technologies and energy harvesting techniques are making significant strides, and the field as a whole is beginning to gain more traction for sensing systems. Innovative solutions in terms of on-board hardware for energy scavenging, extremely low-consumption communication protocols, energy adaptive algorithms, and power management policies for devices in the IoT network are the ultimate frontiers. They open the door to unlimited and uninterrupted operation (zero-energy IoT). The organisers solicit novel and previously unpublished technical articles, which describe advances in networked sensing systems powered by energy harvesting or with sub-microwatt power consumption thanks to low-power technologies or aggressive energy management; as well as those that describe practical deployments and implementation experiences.

See the provisional Call for Papers for further information and topics of interest.

Call for Papers

Complementing the topics of IEEE Global IoT Summit 2017, this workshop will bring together members from different research communities and industrial practitioners to systematically explore the challenges, issues and opportunities in the research, design, and engineering of energy-harvesting and energy-neutral techniques for Internet of Things. These are a technological cornerstone for future IoT applications and innovative solutions in device hardware, energy scavenging, communication protocols, energy adaptive algorithms, and power management policies are the ultimate frontiers. High quality original technical articles are solicited, describing advances in Energy Neutral IoT, enabling technologies, as well as those which describe practical deployments and implementation experiences.

Workshop scope

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Experiences from real-world low-power IoT applications and deployments
  • Ultra low power communications
  • Middleware support and services which support interoperability between zero-energy networks
  • Low Power in Long range communication
  • Power management algorithms for energy harvesting sensing systems
  • Concepts, algorithms and circuits for energy harvesting sensing systems
  • Resilient energy-neutral IoT
  • IoT—Internet of (battery-less) things
  • Resource management and operating system support for energy harvesting sensing systems
  • Network-wide distributed energy management (e.g. routing .. )
  • Energy efficient communication protocols
  • Ultra-low power IoT Technologies and Embedded Systems Architectures

Submission guidelines

We solicit two types of paper submission: technical papers (up to 6 pages). All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Formatting Guidelines. Please use either this Word Template or this LaTeX package. Make sure that you use US letter page format.

IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property seriously. Accordingly, all submissions will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck. By submitting your work you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work. For more information please visit:http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck/index.html

As papers will undergo double-blind review, authors are asked to remove their names and other identifying statements from their submissions. Papers will be reviewed by members of the technical program committee, the organizers of the workshop and carefully selected individuals from academia and industry. Each paper will be matched to at least two reviewers whose expertise reflects the paper’s content. Potential reviewers have already been identified, including a number of reviewers from industry. The conference proceedings will be published on the IEEExplore Digital Library (provisional).

The workshop intends to follow the roadmap of Global IoT Summit 2017 and publish accepted papers in the IEEExplore digital library. The organisers of the workshop will also produce a short position paper based on the discussions at the workshop (including the state-of-the-art and future directions), which will be published and circulated as a technical report.

Accepted Papers

  • 1570344466 -- Design and energy optimization of a multifunctional IoT solution for connected bikes
  • 1570345819 -- On Limits of Constructive Interference in Backscatter Systems
  • 1570345996 -- A self-powered wireless bolt for smart critical fastener
  • 1570346018 -- Peripheral State Persistence For Transiently-Powered Systems
  • 1570346248 -- Design and Implementation of an Energy-Neutral Solar Energy System for Wireless Sensor-Actuator Nodes
