About STIOT(http://hipore.com/stiot/

Services Transactions on Internet of Things (STIOT) is a refereed, international publication aiming to be a core resource providing leading technologies, development applications, empirical studies, and future trends in the field of Internet of Things (IOT).

From the technology foundation perspective, Internet of Things covers the science and technology needed for creating, connecting,interacting, and managing devices and all kinds of things such as computer programs, robots, environments, Internet services, and even people. All topics regarding IOT services lifecycle innovation align with the theme of STIOT.

Aiming to become a prestigious international journal in the field, STIOT will consider extended versions of papers published in reputable related conferences and innovative applications of IOT. Sponsored by Services Society (S2), the published STIOT papers will be made accessible for easy of citation and knowledge sharing, in addition to paper copies. All published STIOT papers will be promoted and recommended to potential authors of the future versions of related reputable conferences such as ICIOT, ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, BigData Congress, SERVICES, and MS.

The Services Society co-sponsors or sponsors the following conferences as a means to explore the deep knowledge space of services innovations in different directions:


STIOT aims to be a core resource providing leading technologies, development applications, empirical studies, and future trends in the field of Internet of Things (IoT).

With the rapid advancements of mobile Internet, cloud computing and big data, device-centric traditional Internet of Things is now moving into a new era which is termed as Internet of Things Services (IOTS). In this era, sensors and other types of sensing devices, wired and wireless networks, platforms and tools, data processing/visualization/analysis and integration engines, and other components of traditional IoT are interconnected through innovative services to realize the value of connected things, people, and virtual Internet spaces. The way of building new IoT applications is changing. We indeed need creative thinking, long-term visions, and innovative methodologies to respond to such a change. Sponsored by Services Society, the First S2 International Conference on Internet of Things (ICIOT 2016) is organized to promote research and application innovations around the world.


STIOT covers state-of-the-art technologies and best practices of Internet of Things, as well as emerging standards and research topics which would define the future of Internet of Things. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

All published papers will be sent to major indexing systems such as GoogleScholar , Compendex (Elsevier Engineering Index), Web of Science, and others for future indexing.

Review Policy

STIOT aims to become a prestigious international journal in the field. STIOT considers extended versions of papers published from reputable related conferences or application innovations of Internet of Things. The published STIOT papers will be recommended to the potential authors of the future versions of related reputable conferences such as S2 ICIOT, ICWS, SCC, CLOUD, BigData, SERVICES, and MS. In addition to their original conference reviewers, STIOT will assign extra board members to review papers. At least 30% of new substantial content must be added from the published conference versions. A cover letter must be submitted together with the journal version and conference version, explaining in detail the extension and difference between the journal version and the conference version. STIOT is sponsored by Services Society, to support professional reviewers and volunteers to conduct peer-review process for all paper submissions. STIOT's policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others until the date of publication. Therefore it is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will divulge or make any use of its contents unless and until the paper is approved and published. Contents of abstracts submitted to reviewers will also be regarded as privileged information, and handled in this manner. Editors-in-Chief of STIOT will ensure that referees adhere to this practice.
