The last years have framed a permanent change of vision of Cloud 
systems. Nowadays, the most important stakeholders such as private 
companies, public agencies and research communities rely on the Cloud 
not only for sharing hardware infrastructures (such as the IaaS 
services) but also, and more importantly, for the software as well as 
for the data services. Nevertheless, most of the players today require 
also to analyze data available on the Cloud with a holistic approach 
provided often by big data analytics techniques.

Under this respect, services designed for a complex scenarios like the 
Smart Cities and Industry 4.0 scenarios benefit of such a new era of the 
Cloud. The complexity of human dynamics in a city can be better analyzed 
by decentralizing the infrastructure, integrating and opening the data 
and sharing the services. All of such features are the core level of 
modern Cloud systems. Despite such a rapid (re)evolution of Cloud 
systems, it is still unclear whether current solutions are able to 
withstand the abrupt and unpredictably changes imposed by the emergent 
application scenarios. Moreover, if only effective Cloud management 
solutions could pave the way to efficient Green computing systems for 
the processing of real-world Big Data knowledge base and streams, so far 
only a few seminal works have studied reciprocal benefits and challenges 
of Cloud and Green solutions for Big Data in large-scale Internet-wide 
deployment environments. That is case of the upcoming Industry 4.0 

The MoCS workshop started following the Cloud stream 7 years ago. Our 
mission is to keep the flow of novelty of Cloud systems and to put on 
the foreground all the above issues, with a particular attention this 
year on the convergence of Cloud systems together with Smart City 
systems to support Big Data for Industry 4.0 scenarios.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

• Experiences on the use of Cloud systems when applied to services 
designed for Smart Cities;

• Analytical and simulation models and tools to measure systems 
scalability and to achieve resource saving in socio-technical Smart City 

• Novel adaptive management solutions for scalable, maintainable, 
cost-effective Cloud provision, at all software stack layers;

• New models and paradigms for the management of Cloud services at the 
host level, within/between data centres (intra- /inter-domain);

• Big Data flows processing for Industry 4.0 scenarios;

• Assessment of the relationship between IoT and Cloud systems when 
applied to Industrial IoT scenarios;

• Experiences on the (re)use of open platforms for services designed for 
Smart Cities integrated with Cloud systems.

*Paper submission*

Review manuscripts should be written in Englishand should describe 
original works and must be no more than 6 pages for full papers and 4 
pages for short papers in the IEEE double column proceedings format 
including tables, figures and references.No more than the 20% of short 
papers will be allowed. Download manuscript templates for IEEE 
conference proceedings <<here>> 
Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted by EDAS. At least one 
author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference 
and present the paper. Only registered and presented papers will be 
published in the conference proceedings.

Authors are invited to submit their papers using the EDAS in the link 
http://edas.info/N24655. Please, contact your Workshop Organizers for 
any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts.Accepted papers 
will be included in the ISCC 2018 Proceedings and will be submitted for 
inclusion to IEEE Xplore. The IEEE ISCC Proceedings have been indexed in 
the past by ISI, dblp and Scopus. This makes the IEEE ISCC Workshops 
publication venues with very high visibility and impact in both Computer 
and Communications areas.
