 The First IEEE International Workshop on Smart Living with IoT, Cloud, and Edge Computing (SLICE 2018)

 in conjunction with
The IEEE Third International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC 2018)

Barcelona, Spain. April 23-26, 2018

Call for Papers:

Smart health, smart cities, smart industries, smart agriculture, smart environment, smart transportation, smart homes, smart education, smart business, smart energy, smart grids, and so on are the components that aid the mankind for smart living. However, they require, typically, design and development of innovative technologies, standards, and protocols apart from their architectures and frameworks. IoT has emerged as an extension to Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) with low-cost and Internet-enabled solution for connecting and accessible anything from anywhere. In addition, such smartness derived due to the artificial intelligence yields in production of tremendous amounts of data. The data increases as a baby-boomer requiring efficient tools to analyze and extract suitable inferences for services in order to extend smart living. Cloud, Edge and Big Data acquired enormous attention in the light of massive data storage and analytics. With the large cohorts of gazette shrewdness and hi-tech population, the infrastructure, service delivery becomes expensive and difficult to manage for cities and governments. Automating systems through utilization of IoT, Cloud, Edge, Big Data, and M2M tools and technologies demonstrate great opportunity to reduce operating costs significantly, utilize those savings more effectively, and provide better services to communities for smarter living. This workshop provides a platform to the researchers to publish their innovative ideas, extensive analysis of their comparative studies, critical review of existing research and position papers in the above areas to meet the smart living requirements. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:


·         Platform architectures

·         Data analytics

·         Privacy preserving data mining

·         Big data integrity and confidentiality

·         Data and knowledge as a service

·         Security and privacy applications

·         Real-time and stream processing techniques and algorithms

·         Real-life case studies

·         Proactive/predictive and advanced machine learning models

·         Simplified and distributed data processing techniques
