Call For Papers

The number of connected IoT devices is exploding during the last years. According to Gartner, the total number of connected "things" will reach 26 billion units by 2020. This trend 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? How to provide appropriate
resources in these environments?

The objective of this workshop is to encourage and attract multidisciplinary research in Internet of Things, (Mobile) Cloud Computing, Distributed and Cloud-Aware IoT systems, Context-Awareness and
(Mobile) Crowdsensing.

ISyCC Workshop will be a forum for academics, industrial researchers, developers, and practitioners to discuss about above-mentioned questions and about topics that include, but are not limited to:

--IoT and Smart Cities
