Powerful data paths along sensor-edge/fog-cloud continuums are becoming mainstream in all application domains. In agriculture, mobility, retail and government, the acquisition of data in Internet of Things (IoT) networks and their transmission and (pre-)processing along pipelines or workflows is increasingly maturing from do-it-yourself setups towards holistically orchestrated, managed, scheduled and secured systems. Advanced capabilities such as distributed in-memory processing, aggregation, learning and insights generation are becoming available for such distributed contexts, and modern cloud development frameworks support the onboarding of edge, IoT and robotic equipment, leading to programmable elastic Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) that support dynamic data paths and computing topologies.
The annual 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 addition to all regular topics, we would like to discuss in particular networking equipment and communication/computation strategies in relation to IoT and edge/fog processing. There are many open challenges related to resilience in crises and emergency situations, governance and operational concerns such as SDN and the secure integration of networking equipment and edge AI platforms with cloud platforms.
Topics of InterestWe solicit research papers (up to 6p) and technical industry reports (typically 3-6p) on the following topics:
Submitted manuscripts must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Manuscripts are submitted in PDF format and may not exceed six (6) ACM-formatted *double-column* pages, including figures, tables, and references. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality,technical strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees. Your submission is subject to a determination that you are not under any sanctions by ACM. Accepted papers will later be converted into single-column format through the ACM TAPS process and therefore need to use the new templates that are single-column by default. Switch them to double-column for authoring your paper. This is possible in both the Word and the LaTeX templates.
Please note: Starting in 2023, submissions and reviews follow a double-blind model. Please submit without author names/affiliations and without hyperlinks that could reveal your origin or identity.
Submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cifs2023
At least one author of each paper must be registered for the UCC/BDCAT conference in order for the paper to be published in the proceedings. The conference proceedings will be published by the ACM and made available online via the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and ACM Digital Library.
