FiCloud 2013 : The International Workshop on the Future Internet of Things and Cloud
Call For Papers
The Internet of Things (IoT) vision is to provide a dynamic and global network infrastructure which is characterized by intelligent and self configuring capabilities. IoT is considered as an integral part of the future Internet. It is based on interoperable communication protocols in order to enable the interaction and integration of virtual as well as physical Things such as computers, smart devices, sensors, cars, refrigerators, food packages, medicines, etc. Things can be seamlessly integrated into the information network and interaction can be made through the provision of intelligent interfaces. In not so distant future, IoT will be forcing its way into every aspect of our lives and technologies including smart homes, smart cities, environment and nature, green energy, food, medicine, automotive, aerospace and aviation, telecommunication, and so on.
IoT is generally characterized by real world and small Things, limited capacity, constrained devices and the consequential issues such as less reliability, security and privacy. Cloud computing on the other hand deals mainly with virtual world and has unlimited capabilities in terms of storage and processing power. Thus cloud and IoT are the main complementary aspects of the future Internet. IoT can benefit from the unlimited capabilities and resources of cloud computing. Similarly, cloud can benefit from IoT by extending its scope to deal with real world things in a more distributed and dynamic manner.
The theme of this workshop is to promote the state of the art in scientific and practical research of the IoT and cloud computing. It provides a forum for bringing together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and public sector in an effort to present their research work and share research and development ideas in the area of IoT and cloud computing.
Topics of the workshop include (but not limited to):
Cloud-enabled IoT service provisioning
IoT models and architectures
IoT for future Internet
Security and privacy in Cloud and IoT
Performance and reliability in Cloud and IoT
Quality of experience in IoT
Big data in cloud and IoT
Advanced network models and protocols
Programming models for IoT
HCI in IoT and cloud
Applications and case studies
Context aware pervasive systems
Service modeling and specification
Data management and processing
Software defined network
Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts using PDF or MS Word formats. The length of the paper is limited to 6 pages using CCIS Springer guidelines which are available on the MobiWIS 2013 website (http://www.mobiwis.org/2013/#paperSubmissions).
All papers accepted for presentation at workshops will be included in a volume published by the CCIS Springer series, indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, and Scopus, and also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.
