The 9th Workshop on Management of Cloud and Smart City Systems


MoCS 2019




In conjunction with IEEE ISCC 2019 – Barcelona, Spain


* * * * * * * * *


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 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 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


* 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


* 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.




Submission Deadline: April 17th

Notification Acceptance: May 3rd

Camera-Ready due: May 10th



Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for

publication in MoCS 2019. Manuscripts should be written in English with

a maximum paper length of 6 printed pages for full papers and 4 pages

for short papers. No more than 20% of short papers will be accepted.

All manuscripts should adhere to the IEEE double column conference

proceedings. Authors are invited to submit their papers using EDAS at

https://edas.info/N25932. Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted

by EDAS. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to

register to the conference and present the paper. Only registered and

presented papers will be included in the ISCC 2019 Proceedings and

submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore library. The IEEE ISCC

Proceedings have been indexed in the past by ISI, dblp and Scopus. This

makes the IEEE ISCC Workshops publication venues with very high

visibility and impact in both Computer and Communications areas.


Please, contact the Workshop Organizers for any inquiry regarding the

submission of manuscripts.
