FSN 2015 : International Workshop on Big Data and Cloud Computing for Future Sensor Networks
Call For Papers
International Workshop on Big Data and Cloud Computing for Future Sensor Networks (FSN)
--- In conjunction with The 10th International Conference on Future Networks and Communications (FNC 2015) ---
August 17-20, 2015
Although Sensor Networks have several limitations in terms of memory, computation, energy, and communication, they have to manage large volume of data that they collect from the surrounding environment. For the last few years, researchers have been actively trying to optimize data collection, processing and transfer.
Nevertheless, the increasing requirements for real-time processing and storing of the collected data are rising up the need for a powerful and scalable high-performance computing and massive storage infrastructure.
With the emergence of cloud computing and big data, significant amounts of computation and data have been offloaded from data centres and personal devices while offering more scalability, flexibility, and economy. The integration of sensor networks with cloud computing and big data looks thus very attractive for more performant sensor networks. This integration may raise many research and practical challenges such as event processing and management, real time data processing, and large scale computing infrastructure.
The aim of this workshop is to gather latest research breakthroughs in using cloud computing and big data paradigms to develop better sensor networks. The workshop will gather leading researchers from academics and industry to present new ideas, original research results and practical development experiences.
