The BISITE Research Group would like to invite you to participate in a WORKSHOP on “IoT approaches for distributed computing, communications and new  applications”, it is part of the framework of the 15th International Conference on Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing (MobiSPC2018). The event will take place in August 13-15, 2018, Gran Canaria, Spain.

IoT deployments require: new abstraction or multi-agent approaches to distribute tasks among edges and cloud; new techniques and communication standards for sharing information to increase spectrum efficiency while keeping data consistency and availability; and new meta-data, policies, and hardware/software capabilities to aid fog-orchestration in distributed databases.

The aim of this workshop is to provide state-of-the-art solutions tackling the mentioned IoT distributed computing problems. High quality research papers as well as contributions from industry that are not yet published or under review are welcomed.

All papers must be submitted by March 22, 2018 (Paper submission).  If you are interested and want to find out more about this workshop, visit https://bisite.usal.es/en/MobiSPC-IOTWS to get all the information.

We’re looking forward to your contributions.
