Call for Book Chapter- Springer-Energy Conservation for IoT Devices

Book series Title: Studies in Systems, Decision and Control – Springer
Book Title: Energy Conservation for IoT Devices: Concepts, Paradigms and Solutions
1. Dr. Mamta Mittal, G.B. Pant Government Engineering College, Okhla, New Delhi, India
2. Dr. Sudeep Tanwar, Institute of Technology, Nirma University, Ahmadabad, Gujarat, India
3. Dr. Basant Agarwal, Swami Keshvanand Institute of Technology Management &  Gramothan, Jaipur, India
4. Dr. Lalit Mohan Goyal, Bharati Vidyapeeth’s College of Engineering, New Delhi, India

Scope of the book:
The IoT is not just an evolution from present situations where the devices can be remotely controlled, it is a major disruption for energy efficiency applications by many aspects, such as- the number of connected objects: It is estimated by 2020, 26 billion units will be installed. It has a major impact for energy efficiency, confirming the mega trend to connected objects. Everything must be connected, even if services are not defined at the beginning. But IoT will dramatically speed up this evolution and raise questions in the energy efficiency domain? Present architectures and technologies for connecting objects must adapt. But the relevant consortia are very numerous and diverse. The selection of one of them is highly important, but very difficult to make. The business models will be application and services, where analytics (Big Data) will be key. This is a dramatic change from today’s applications, where the value is in devices (sensors/actuators).

Topics of Interest:
This book focuses on energy efficiency concerns in IoT and the requirements related to Industry 4.0. It’s the first-ever “how-to” guide addressing one of the most overlooked practical, methodological, and moral questions in any nations’ journeys to conserve energy in IoT devices. It includes a detailed approaches required to conserve energy in IoT, and comparative case studies with respect to various performance evaluation metrics, such as energy conservation, state-of-the-art approaches, and IoT legislation. Each chapter should be describing detailed description of the novel energy conservation approaches required for IoT devices. We welcome book chapter contributions on the following (but not are limited to) themes:

1. Introduction to IoT and Energy Conservation

2. Existing Enabling Technologies and Solutions to Conserve Energy in IoT
3. The Importance and benefits to Conserve Energy in IoT
