Highly sophisticated compute networks, encompassing small networked sensors and hyperscaler clouds, are becoming a mainstream technology concern. The density of sensing increases, as does the frequency and amount of data generation. Monolithic big data frameworks do not fit well into this scheme and moreover do not reflect well the distinct operational models and responsibilities due to conventional handling of credentials. At the same time, developer-accessible cloud DevOps frameworks are increasingly becoming a choice to run at edge nodes, leading to diverse IoT-edge/fog-cloud continuum models for programming and deployment.
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, in the face of the increasing complexity and massive scale of things-to-cloud applications and deployments in the real world, CIFS particularly welcomes submissions focused on the cloud-native security and resilience aspects of such 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 IEEE 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 IEEE and will appear in the same or companion volume as the UCC 2022 and BDCAT 2022 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 IEEE conference or workshop registration fee.
