ISYCC 2021 : THE Sixth Workshop on IoT Systems Provisioning & Management For Context-Aware Smart Cities
Call For Papers
IoT devices are getting smaller and smarter, while the conditions and constraints to be satisfied in IoT setting are increasingly complex. In addition, with the aim of increasing user satisfaction, these devices should be aware of the context, knowing the user's preferences and needs; so that they can adapt their behavior to each situation.
These challenges pose some questions that need further discussion from researchers: How to enable collecting, managing and sharing massive amounts of data with other connected "things" and/or prospective software in the Cloud? How this information could be used to adapt the smart devices' behavior? How to provide appropriate resources and provisioning procedures in these environments?
The objective of this workshop is to encourage and attract multidisciplinary research in Internet of Things, (Mobile) Cloud Computing, Fog/Edge Computing, Distributed and Cloud-Aware IoT systems, Context-Awareness and (Mobile) Crowdsensing.
