The 9th Workshop on Management of Cloud and Smart City Systems

MoCS 2019


In conjunction with IEEE ISCC 2019 - Barcelona, Spain

* * * * * * * * *

The last years have witnessed a permanent change of vision of cloud
systems. Nowadays, the most important stakeholders such as private
companies, public agencies, research communities and citizens rely on
the cloud for a number of purposes, stemming from sharing hardware
infrastructures to software, data, and sensing services. The MoCS
workshop started following the "cloud" stream 8 years ago. The focus of
the 9th MoCS edition is in the convergence of cloud paradigm in form of
MEC to support low-latency, context-aware applications for complex
scenarios like smart cities and solutions for secure transactions in
data trading.

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

* Application of cloud and MEC systems to smart cities services;
* Models for context-aware crowdsensing techniques at urban-level scale;
* Integration of cloud/edge systems and mobile crowdsensing systems
through Human-enabled Edge Computing (HEC) paradigm;
* Experiences on the (re)use of open platforms for cloud-integrated
smart cities services;
* Design and evaluation tools for scalability and efficient resource
allocation in smart cities;
* Models and design inter-play between mobility agents (citizens,
vehicles) in urban environments;
* Design and application of cloud/edge technologies to Intelligent
Transport Systems (ITS);
* Vehicular cloud architectures for provisioning of smart cities
* Adaptive solutions for scalable, maintainable, cost-effective cloud
management and services provision;
* Models and paradigms for the management of cloud/MEC services
within/between data centres (intra- /inter-domain) and their deployment
in urban environment;
* Application of machine learning techniques to cloud/edge-based smart
city applications;
* Cloud/edge-based automation tools applied to robotic science for smart
* Pricing schemes, bargaining mechanisms and economics for trading data
in cloud/edge environments;
* Blockchain solutions for secure and reliable transactions between the
counterparts in data sharing/trading.


Submission Deadline: April 17th
Notification Acceptance: May 3rd
Camera-Ready due: May 10th

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for
publication in MoCS 2019. Manuscripts should be written in English with
a maximum paper length of 6 printed pages for full papers and 4 pages
for short papers. No more than 20\% of short papers will be accepted.
All manuscripts should adhere to the IEEE double column conference
proceedings. Authors are invited to submit their papers using EDAS at
https://edas.info/N25932. 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 included in the ISCC 2019 Proceedings and
submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore library. 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.

Please, contact the Workshop Organizers for any inquiry regarding the
submission of manuscripts.
