IEEE 8th World Forum on Internet of Things
26 October–11 November 2022 // Yokohama, Japan

Special Session

Special Sessions consist of peer-reviewed papers and interactive presentations focused on a selected “hot” research topics of importance to IoT. A key aspect of Special Sessions is that they should be coherent, relevant to an aspect of IoT, timely and informative, while not overlapping with the content of the traditional technical paper program.


The Special Session Tracks are expected to consist of two (2) hour sessions, each including four or five (4-5) papers. The Special Sessions may contain multiple such sessions with allocation of 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours.


Special Sessions will be scheduled for the weeks of Oct 31st – Nov 4th, or Nov 7th – Nov 11th, 2022.
