The 10th Workshop on Management of Cloud and Smart City Systems

MoCS 2020


In conjunction with IEEE ISCC 2020

* * * * *

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 9 years ago. The focus of the 10th 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 learning-driven approaches for urban planning.

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;
* Edge data center deployment in urban environments to support low-latency
* ML- and AI-based approaches for edge computing services;
* AI-driven models, architectures, and frameworks for edge computing;
* 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;
* Design and application of cloud/edge technologies to Intelligent Transport
Systems (ITS);
* Vehicular cloud architectures for provisioning of smart cities services;
* 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 ML 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;
* Data-driven approaches for smart transportation in urban areas;
* Software defined networks and placement of the controller in urban

A selection of papers accepted to MoCS 2020 will be invited
 for a possible extension to be published in MDPI Electronics Special Issue:
 The Technologies that Disappear: 30 years after Mark Weiser’s Vision


Paper Submission: April 25, 2020
Notification of Acceptance:  May 15, 2020
Final Paper: May 25, 2020

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for
publication in MoCS 2020. 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
(https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html). Authors
are invited to submit their papers using EasyChair at
Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted by EasyChair.
At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to
the conference and provide a presentation file and/or video.
Only registered papers will be included in the ISCC 2020
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.
