The smart village is a concept that combines renewable energy and community-based education that can have an impact on an estimated 940 million population worldwide. Smart villages target IoT technologies in rural areas to develop innovative solutions to improve the quality of life and provide growth opportunities to its residents. The smart villages exhibit certain characteristics that may have some commonalities with smart cities, but also some distinctly different. The systems of the smart villages are essentially cyber-physical systems or CPS which are built using the Internet of Things (IoT). Research on ‘IoT Technologies for Smart Villages’ encompasses sensors, cloud computing, edge computing, big data, wearable devices, and related technologies for the energy-efficient, secure, and robust design. Thus, the development of IoT based Technologies for Smart Villages needs the investigation of several factors such as energy efficiency, security, privacy, computational performance, reliability, and flexibility, which necessitates rigorous research.


This special session intends to serve as a forum to present state-of-the-art techniques and IoT-enabled technology solutions for smart villages. The topics for this special session of interests include, but are not limited to the following:

  • IoMT-enabled solutions for smart healthcare
  • IoT-enabled solutions for smart transportation
  • IoT-enabled solutions for Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAVs)
  • IoT-enabled solutions for smart huts and smart homes
  • Blockchain based solutions for smart village components and technologies
  • Physical Unclonable Functions (PUF) based solutions for smart village components and technologies
  • Security, Privacy, and IP Rights solutions for smart village components and technologies
  • Sensor designs for diverse IoT applications
  • Real-time systems design for IoT applications
  • Energy-harvesting technology for IoT
  • Security and privacy-aware hardware designs for IoT
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning solutions for smart village components and technologies
  • Edge computing based IoT solutions for smart villages.

Paper Submission Guidelines
