ISYCC@ICSOC 2017 : Second Workshop on IoT Systems Provisioning & Management for Context-Aware Smart Cities (ISyCC'2017) In conjunction with ICSOC 2017
Call For Papers
The number of connected IoT devices is exploding during the last years. This is bringing several challenges to be addressed when it comes to building efficient and reliable IoT systems. The devices involved in these applications are getting smaller and smarter, while the conditions and constraints to be satisfied are increasingly complex. In addition, with the aim of increasing user satisfaction, these devices should be aware of the context, knowing the user's preferences and needs; so that they can adapt their behavior to each situation. Further increasing, their complexity.
These challenges pose some questions that need further discussion from researchers: How to enable collecting, managing and sharing massive amounts of data with other connected “things” and/or prospective software in the Cloud? How this information could be used to adapt the smart devices’ behavior? What is the role of the (Mobile) Cloud Computing and the Fog Computing?
ISyCC Workshop will be a forum for academics, industrial researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss challenges and advances in Internet of Things, (Mobile) Cloud Computing, Distributed and Cloud-Aware IoT systems, Context-Awareness and (Mobile) Crowdsensing. It is also especially relevant for the workshop the application of these paradigms in real environments and situations within a smart city, such as smart transportation, pollution, smart tourism, well-being, etc.
