Call For Papers

The last years have witnessed a permanent change of vision of cloud systems. Nowadays, the most important stakeholders such as private companies, public agencies, research communities and citizens rely on the cloud for a number of purposes, stemming from sharing hardware infrastructures to software, data, and sensing services.

The services designed for complex scenarios like Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC), smart cities, and the upcoming Industry 4.0, pave the path for a new era of the cloud. The complexity of human dynamics in a city can be better analyzed by decentralizing the infrastructure, integrating and opening the data and sharing the services. The MEC paradigm, standardized by ETSI, is a key enabling technology for upcoming 5G networks, whereby applications and network functions are hosted in edge cloud data centers. By being closer to the end-user, besides better supporting low-latency applications, MEC systems are a candidate architecture for such a decentralized, context-aware infrastructure. Despite such a rapid (re-)evolution of cloud systems, it remains unclear whether current solutions are able to support these emergent application scenarios. Through sensing as a service processes, crowd-sensed data is made available to the cloud stakeholders. Some of them like citizens become data contributors, customers and service consumers at the same time. This data exchange calls for secure and reliable data trading transactions between the counterparts. Blockchain technology provides the stakeholders with a transparent, unalterable, ordered ledger by enabling a decentralized and secure environment. Solutions for its integration in the cloud for smart-city services are however yet to appear.

The MoCS workshop started following the "cloud" stream 8 years ago. The focus of the 9th MoCS edition is in the convergence of cloud paradigm in form of MEC to support low-latency, context-aware applications for complex scenarios like smart cities and solutions for secure transactions in data trading.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Application of cloud/edge and MEC systems to smart cities services;
  • Models for context-aware crowdsensing techniques at urban-level scale;
  • Integration of cloud/edge systems and mobile crowdsensing systems through Human-enabled Edge Computing (HEC) paradigm;
  • Experiences on the (re)use of open platforms for cloud-integrated smart cities services;
  • Design and evaluation tools for scalability and efficient resource allocation in smart cities;
  • Models and design inter-play between mobility agents (citizens, vehicles) in urban environments;
  • Design and application of cloud/edge technologies to Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS);
  • Vehicular cloud architectures for provisioning of smart cities services;
  • Adaptive solutions for scalable, maintainable, cost-effective cloud management and services provision;
  • Models and paradigms for the management of cloud/MEC services within/between data centres (intra- /inter-domain) and their deployment in urban environment;
  • Application of machine learning techniques to cloud/edge-based smart city applications;
  • Cloud/edge-based automation tools applied to robotic science for smart cities;
  • Pricing schemes, bargaining mechanisms and economics for trading data in cloud/edge environments;
  • Blockchain solutions for secure and reliable transactions between the counterparts in data sharing/trading;
