Sensor-based computing scenarios are on the rise. Smart cities install wide arrays of pollution, noise, temperature and traffic counting sensors. Machine equipment self-monitors to predict degradations. Monitoring by drones and satellites is becoming more affordable. There is a lack of systematic computing concepts, combining privacy and security requirements with essential performance and latency. For instance, raw video streams from dashcams must not be sent to the cloud for privacy reasons but can not always be fully processed with vehicle on-board units.
The CIFS workshop gathers researchers and innovators around the challenges of building and operating complex computing topologies and associated cloud architectures around the Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems, bridging the digital world with our environment. It calls for research and experience reports, from the algorithm level to completed production systems, in order to advance the knowledge resulting from progress in overcoming the challenges. CIFS also welcomes data-centric studies, simulations, testbeds and similar helpful software solutions.
This year, CIFS particularly welcomes contributions on smart distributed systems resulting from the conscious processing and storage of information at suitable locations across the underlying infrastructures and platforms. These systems gain and exploit knowledge dynamically, for instance, to foresee and capacity bottlenecks and leverage alternative plans. This enables new applications, including liquid software with high dependability, gracefully overcoming the brittleness of many current IoT applications.
Topics of InterestWe solicit research papers (up to 6p) and technical industry reports (typically 3-6p) on the following topics:
Submitted papers should contain results or reports not already published or submitted elsewhere, in ACM format. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three programme committee members. The evaluation will be based on originality, relevance of the problem to the workshop topics, technical strength, quality of results, and clarity of the presentation. The publication of the workshop proceeding with all accepted papers will be by the ACM and will appear in the same or companion volume as the UCC 2021 and BDCAT 2021 conferences. At least one author of each accepted submission must register in full and attend the workshop to present and all workshop participants must pay the ACM conference or workshop registration fee.
Note: Whether you use the ACM LaTeX or Word templates, please make sure to submit in double-column format up to 6 pages including references.
