Dear users of Hpc-Announce mailing list,

Cloud2Things 2023 - The 3rd Workshop From Cloud to Things: harnessing
pervasive data in the Computing Continuum
Atlanta, Georgia USA
May 13, 2023 - https://cloud2things.netsons.org/2023/index.html

in conjunction with the 21st International Conference on Pervasive
Computing and Communications (PerCom 2023)


The Computing 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.
This workshop encourages submissions that address opportunities and issues
of the computing continuum landscape, and proposes experimental solutions,
case studies, deployed systems and best practices in this specific research
The workshop is an opportunity for researchers to gather and discuss the
advantages of integrating multiple computing infrastructure layers into a
unified and pervasive computing context capable of offering customers a
one-shop virtual place where services can be tailored and offered in a
transparent and uniform way.


Service design and Management

Service provisioning and monitoring in the computing continuum
Resource elasticity in pervasive contexts
Computation offload to Edge/IoT device
Cross-context and cross-domain service migration
Interoperability issues in the computing continuum
Orchestration of (micro)services in pervasive environments
Blockchain-based and ML-based resource orchestration
Smart solutions and strategies for the management of pervasive systems
Open-source frameworks and middlewares in the computing continuum

Data management and analytics

Scalable storage architectures in pervasive contexts;
Data migration issues in pervasive computing systems
Implementation of data pipes along the Things-to-Cloud path
Data governance in the computing continuum
Distributed Analytics in the computing continuum
Orchestration of Complex Mixed Data-parallel Dataflow Workloads in the
computing continuum

Network and communication management

Software-defined communication support in the continuum
End-to-end provisioning of network services in the continuum
QoS and SLA across heterogeneous networks

Digital Twins

Frameworks for Distributed Digital Twins (DDTs) in pervasive contexts
Design methodologies for DDTs
DDT-based applications and solutions in pervasive contexts
Resilient, scalable and secure DDTs

Non-functional features

Quality of Service and SLA of pervasive systems
Service continuity
Autonomic pervasive systems
Scalability and fault management in pervasive systems
Disaster recovery via pervasive solutions and systems (e.g. mesh networks,
UAV etc.)
Security and trust management in pervasive environments

Vertical 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 six (6) 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 EDAS 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.
All accepted papers will be published as part of the Percom satellite
events proceedings.
Proceedings will be published by the IEEE and available online through IEEE
Digital Library (EI indexing).


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 workshop will be invited for submission of
extended version for publication in one of the following special issues:


Submission deadline: November 14th, 2022
Notification of paper acceptance: January 5th, 2023
Submission of camera-ready papers: TBD


Cloud2things will be held in Atlanta, Georgia (USA), during March 13-17,
2023, as a physical event
at the Georgia State University Student Center East, Ballroom 55 Gilmer St.
Atlanta, GA 30303
