Work-08: Cloud-Native IoT Applications and Systems (CN-IoT)


The Internet of Things (IoT) will be increasingly pervasive in the near future, being supported by emerging technologies such as 5G/6G wireless networks that simplify its deployment, and AI techniques that deal with data processing at scale. The enormous amount of data that IoT devices produce will likely be managed and processed by distributed applications using a microservice architectural model, whose component services can be dynamically deployed across fog, edge, and cloud resources. There are many services that make up the processing pipeline of an IoT application, including federated data integration systems based on international standards (such as oneM2M, NGSI, NGSI-LD, etc.), spatial/temporal databases, data/event distribution platforms and protocols, monitoring/tracking systems, etc. And these services are expected to run in lightweight virtualization sandboxes, such as containers, whose orchestration across a set of distributed and heterogeneous servers of a fog/edge/cloud continuum requires challenging multi-cluster solutions. In this scenario, whose main players are cloud and IoT, the goals of this workshop are to create a forum for researchers and practitioners to present innovative cloud-native distributed IoT applications as well as specific services, platforms, and supporting cloud/network technologies for IoT.


The workshop fosters researchers and stakeholders to share innovative ideas on cloud and IoT by presenting practical experiences in developing cloud-native IoT applications related to emerging vertical domains, such as: smart-city, eHealth, autonomous driving, surveillance, etc. In addition, it is of interest to present specific services composing cloud-native IoT applications (federated integration platforms, databases, pub/sub systems, etc.), orchestration of multi-cluster platforms for macro and micro datacenters, intra- and inter-cluster network protocols, virtualization technologies, security frameworks, etc.

The workshop topic includes but are not limited to:

  • Cloud-native IoT applications
  • Fog/Edge/Cloud orchestration platforms for IoT applications
  • IoT virtualization technologies
  • Sensing-as-a-Service
  • Distributed/Federated data integration platforms
  • Networking solutions for cloud-native applications
  • Distributed learning platform for IoT applications
  • Distributed monitoring and tracing of IoT services
  • 5G/6G cloud-native architectural extensions/exploitations for IoT applications
  • Performance evaluation and benchmarking of existing cloud solutions and services for IoT applications

Important Dates:

  • Paper submission: 13 June 2022 August 1st, 2022
  • Acceptance Notification: 8 July 2022 August 16th, 2022
  • Camera-Ready Paper Submission Deadline: 31 July 2022 August 31st, 2022

Paper should be six (6) pages in length. The conference allows up to two additional pages for a maximum length of eight (8) pages with payment of extra page charges once the paper has been accepted.

Once the paper you submitted has been reviewed and accepted you will be notified about uploading a final version of the paper for publication in the Proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
