Call for Papers: International Journal on Social Technologies

Special Issue on Social impact of Internet of Things

Theme and Scope:

The theme of Social Technologies covers the application of social
technologies in the areas of human rights protection, e-justice
implementation, personal and community data security, society functionality
and communication, networked teaching and education, health systems
solutions, leisure activity arrangement and design of social goods. This
international journal is focused on systematic analysis of the technical,
legal, political, economic, psychological and social barriers to more
effective use of information and communication and new (nano-, bio-, mega-)
technologies for society to discuss the latest scientific developments and
offer practical solutions to the public.

Recent advances in the field of cyber-physical systems have expanded their
application to a much broader scope than their traditional one, which
included sensor networks and domotics. The Internet of Things (IoT) is now
a ubiquitous presence in our life, and it expands the reach of ICT to all
areas of our society.

This special issue is focused on the theme of the social impact of the
Internet of Things, and its dual concept, the application of social
paradigms to the IoT. This special issue aims to foster the dissemination
of high quality research in any new theory, technique, and research related
to the intersection of social technologies and the IoT, with goals
including but not limited to:
- To reveal possibilities of IoT and ubiquitous applications to social
spheres, content, extent, tendencies, and to foresee tasks and
recommendations as to how this technology can transform various spheres of
social life.
- To consider the application of the social paradigm to different aspects
of IoT and ubiquitous applications, such as routing protocols,
collaborative data collection, user profiling, privacy preserving.
- To encourage scientific researches seeking for new theoretical and
practical solutions to apply IoT paradigms to sustainable development of
society and to edutainment.
- To provide a chance for academia and industry to present novel
theoretical and experimental studies real IoT installations.
- To propose business models for the exploration of IoT and ubiquitous
computing applications.
