Call For Papers

The last years have witnessed a permanent change of vision of cloud systems. Nowadays, the most important stakeholders such as private companies, public agencies, research communities, and citizens rely on the cloud for a number of purposes, ranging from sharing hardware infrastructures to software, data, and sensing services.

The services designed for complex scenarios like distributed clouds, the Internet of Things, smart cities, and the upcoming Industry 5.0, pave the path for a new era of the cloud. The complexity of human dynamics in a city can be better analyzed by decentralizing the infrastructure, integrating and opening the data, and sharing the services. The distributed cloud paradigm is a key enabling technology, whereby applications and network functions are hosted in the cloud-to-thing continuum. By being closer to the end-user, besides better supporting low-latency applications, MEC systems are a candidate architecture for such a decentralized, context-aware infrastructure. Despite such a rapid (re-)evolution of edge-cloud systems, the extremely heterogeneous smart city applications (sensing as a service, crowd sensing, etc.) make the satisfaction of all the requirements a big challenge. In this context, emergent paradigms like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), privacy-enhancing technologies (PET), and blockchain (BC) are key enablers for cloud-to-thing systems to shape the development of autonomic orchestration and networking.

The workshop on Management of Cloud and Smart city systems (MoCS) started following the “cloud” revolution about 11 years ago. MoCS 2022, in its 12th edition, is organized in association with the 27th IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (IEEE ISCC 2022). The focus of MoCS 2022 is in the convergence of distributed clouds, context and privacy-aware applications for complex scenarios like smart cities, and learning-driven approaches for urban planning. The workshop aims at disseminating results on both theoretical and applicative aspects.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
-Application of distributed clouds to smart cities services.
-Models for context-aware crowdsensing techniques at urban-level scale.
-Human-enabled Edge Computing (HEC) paradigm.
-Cloud to Edge continuum.
-Edge data center deployment in urban environments.
-Cloud quantum service model.
-Hybrid quantum for smart city systems.
-ML- and AI-based approaches cloud/edge-based smart city applications.
-AI-driven models, architectures, and frameworks for edge computing.
-Experiences on the (re)use of open platforms for cloud-integrated smart cities services.
-Design and evaluation tools for scalability and efficient resource allocation in smart cities.
-Design and application of cloud/edge technologies to Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).
-Vehicular cloud architectures for provisioning of smart cities services.
-Models and paradigms for the management of cloud/MEC services within/between data.
-Data-driven approaches for smart transportation in urban areas.
-Blockchain solutions for secure and reliable transactions between the counterparts in data sharing/trading.
-Security and privacy techniques to cloud/edge-based smart city applications.
-Post-quantum security and privacy for smart city applications.

Paper submission
Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for publication in MoCS 2022. Manuscripts should be written in English with a maximum paper length of 6 printed pages for full papers. All manuscripts should adhere to the IEEE double-column conference proceedings (
The submission link is

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference and present the paper. Only registered and presented papers will be included in the ISCC 2022 Proceedings and submitted for inclusion to the IEEE Xplore library. The IEEE ISCC Proceedings have been indexed in the past by ISI, dblp, and Scopus. This makes the IEEE ISCC Workshops publication venues with very high visibility and impact in both Computer and Communications areas.
