CALL FOR PAPERS

SNCC 2016

The 2nd International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Cloud Computing

Organized In Conjunction with Qshine 2016

7-8 July 2016 - Seoul, South Korea

 

History

Welcome to SNCC 2016! SNCC 2015 (http://qshine.org/2015/show/sncc) was organized as a special session of Qshine 2015 (http://qshine.org/2015/show/home), which was held on 19-20 August 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

Scope

Sensor networks and cloud computing (SNCC) have received tremendous attentions from both academia and industry, as they are emerging to own numerous exciting applications in Internet of Things, Machine to Machine and Cyber Physical Systems (e.g., industrial process control, video surveillance, structural health monitoring, mobile commerce, mobile learning, mobile gaming), which can fundamentally change the way people interact with the physical world. Recently, integrating sensor networks with cloud computing is widely recognized to further enhance the performance of sensor networks or cloud computing applications, by utilizing the powerful cloud to store, process and share the data gathered by a variety of sensors. However, new research challenges need to be addressed in order to accelerate the development of these SNCC integrated applications. For instance, the mobile network bandwidth is still quite limited with the dramatically increasing mobile and cloud users. Intelligent resource management is required to provide users with services in an on-demand and scalable fashion. A secure mobile computing model is necessary to protect user privacy and data secrecy.

In this workshop, we solicit research papers with respect to all aspects of SNCC. The goal of this workshop is to bring together state-of-the-art research contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address various aspects of analysis, design, optimization, implementation, and application of SNCC.

 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

-          Protocols for supporting real-time and reliable sensor data streaming

-          Energy-efficient sensor data gathering, transmission, traffic management, and sensor data management

-          Scalability, mobility issues in cross-layer design, and optimization for effective sensor data communications
