IoT devices are getting smaller and smarter, while the conditions and constraints to be satisfied in IoT setting are increasingly complex. In addition, with the aim of increasing user satisfaction, these devices should be aware of the context, knowing the user's preferences and needs; so that they can adapt their behavior to each situation.

These challenges pose some questions that need further discussion from researchers: How to enable collecting, managing and sharing massive amounts of data with other connected "things" and/or prospective software in the Cloud? How this information could be used to adapt the smart devices' behavior? How to provide appropriate resources and provisioning procedures in these environments?

The objective of this workshop is to encourage and attract multidisciplinary research in Internet of Things, (Mobile) Cloud Computing, Fog/Edge Computing, Distributed and Cloud-Aware IoT systems, Context-Awareness and (Mobile) Crowdsensing.

Paper submission

Authors are invited to submit full papers (maximum length of 12 pages, including all references and figures.) Papers should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS formatting guidelines and submitted the conference submission system.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the Program Committee and evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All submissions must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference.

Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.

For each accepted paper, at least one author must register, attend the workshop and present the paper. Registration is subject to the terms and conditions of ICSOC.
