Call For Papers

First International Workshop on Cloud Computing Challenges for enabling the Internet of Things (CCC4IoT-2012)

in conjunction with

The 5th IEEE/ACM International Conference on

Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2012)

November 5-8, 2012

Chicago, Illinois, USA -

Aims and Scope

The first International Workshop on Cloud Computing Challenges for enabling the Internet of Things (CCC4IoT-2012) is dedicated to the theories, practices and concepts of advancing Clouds to enable the realization of Future Internet and specifically, the Internet of Things (IoT). During the last years, Clouds and inter-Clouds (an initiative to enable Clouds working together) are emerging as significant e-infrastructures for performing and delivering business and science. While Clouds are becoming popular by providing a new supplement, consumption, delivery and efficient Internet model, IoT has been emerged as a world-wide network of inter-connected physical objects uniquely addressable, based on standard communication protocols. IoT is associated with technologies such as ad hoc networks, near-field communications, femtocells, real-time localization, and embedded tags and sensors as a way to transform everyday objects into smart objects which in turn, lead to a shared next generation Internet, what is also known as Future Internet. A notable opportunity – that is the CCC4IoT-2012 scope – is to what are the challenges for Clouds as facilitating e-infrastructures to meet the requirements towards an IoT realization. CCC4IoT-2012 aims to provide a forum for original discussion and prompt future directions on how to support the harvesting, storage, processing and exploitation of real-time and dynamically generated available inter-connected objects in a reliable, scalable and secure manner.

The main topic areas include, but are not limited to:

Internet of Things, Architecture, Components, RFID, Sensors and Actuator Technologies
Inter-networking and Radio Access Protocols, Technologies, Near Field Communications, Femtocells
