Dear users of Hpc-Announce mailing list,

Cloud2Things 2022 - The 2nd Workshop on Cloud-to-Things continuum: towards
the convergence of IoT, Edge and Cloud Computing
Messina, Taormina Italy*
May 16, 2021 - https://siotec2022.netsons.org/

in conjunction with the 22th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster,
Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2022)

*The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority.
For this reason the workshop will be held online.

The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss problems,
solutions, open technical challenges, and perspectives of ongoing research
activities concerning the orchestration of resources in the Cloud-to-Things
continuum landscape.
The Cloud-toThings continuum concept refers to the opportunity of taking
advantage of a broad computing context that mixes Cloud, Edge and IoT
resources, thus providing a “continuum” of computing services that
applications will be able to access in a transparent and uniform fashion.


Management services

Service provisioning and monitoring in a Cloud-to-Things environment
Resource elasticity in Cloud-to-Things contexts
Algorithms and systems for automated elasticity
Orchestration and automation of management activities
Cross context/domain service migration
Cross cloud offloading
Orchestration of microservices;
Blockchain-based resource orchestrator
Machine learning techniques for resource orchestration

Openness and integration

Open-source private Cloud-to-Things solutions
Open interoperability issues in Cloud-to-Things solutions
Cloud-to-Things federations

Data management

Scalable storage architectures in Cloud-to-Things;
Data migration in Cloud-to-Things
Data governance across Cloud-to-Things

Data Analytics

Distributed Analytics Cloud Orchestration
Serverless Execution of Machine Learning and SQL workloads on the Cloud
Orchestration of Complex Mixed Data-parallel Dataflow Workloads on the
Cloud-to-Things Continuum
Stateful Workload Orchestration for Serverless environments on the Cloud

Non-functional features

Quality of Service and SLA in Cloud-to-Things
Service continuity
Autonomic Cloud-to-Things
Fault management in Cloud-to-Things provisioning
Disaster mitigation
Scalability of Cloud-to-Things supports and infrastructures
Security policies in Cloud-to-Things
Cost mitigation strategies

Applicative domains

Smart City
Smart Industry
Smart Grid
Smart Agriculture
Smart Health

The use of Soft Computing/Computational Intelligence methods in facing
problems in the above topics is highly welcome, although not compulsory.


Authors are invited to submit their papers written in English in IEEE
double-column format (IEEE standard conference templates).
Papers can be either full, with a maximum length of eight (8) printed
pages, or short, with a maximum length of four (4) printed pages.
In both cases, the number of pages includes figures, tables & references.
Submissions should contain original material and not be previously
published, or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.
All papers will be reviewed for scientific quality by the Technical Program

All papers should be submitted via Easychair using the following link

Paper submission implies the willingness of at least one author to
register, at the regular rate (non-student), and present the paper.
The Workshop Proceedings will be part of the CCGrid 2022 Proceedings and
will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
The IEEE Cloud2things Workshop is using the Easychair Conference Management
System to manage the paper submission process.


A "Best Paper Award" Certificate will be conferred on the author(s) of a
paper presented at the workshop,
selected by the Chairs based on scientific significance, originality and
outstanding technical quality of the paper,
as assessed also by the evaluations of the members of the Program Committee.

Highly top rated papers from the Siotec 2022 conference will be invited for
submission of extended version for publication in one of the following
special issues:
- “Green Communications via Optimization Techniques” for Sustainable
Computing: Informatics and Systems (ISSN: 2210-5379) published by Elsevier.


Submission deadline: January 20th, 2022
Notification of paper acceptance: February 24th, 2022
Submission of camera-ready papers: March 18th, 2022
