The 8th International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud (FiCloud 2020)

24-26 August 2020, Rome, Itlay

Technical co-sponsorship: IEEE-CS TCI

Cloud is a modern computing platform for delivering on-demand computing services to service consumers over the Internet. Computing services include, for example, storage, memory, compute power, databases, and networking among others. Cloud services are generally provided using SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and
IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service). Unlike conventional distributed computing, cloud
offers flexibility, scalability, efficiency and elasticity in service provisioning.

The Internet of Things (IoT) provides 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 conference 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.
