With the development of smart sensors, things, cloud computing, and the next-generation wireless networking technologies, “Smart Connected Living” is getting noteworthy consideration from the academia, the industry, and from the smart world community. Recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought the vision of the connected world into reality with a massive amount of data and numerous services. Cloud computing fits well as an enabling technology in this scenario as it presents a flexible stack of computing, storage and software services at low cost. The cloud-based services can provide a high quality of experience to a range of connected applications anytime and from anywhere seamlessly. However, the combination of IoT and cloud can unleash new opportunities for both technologies. The combined potential of IoT and cloud can play an important role in the connected living ecosystem by offering better insight of heterogeneous connected services in the connected world. However, the combined potential cannot be fully realized with conventional networking technologies unless the next-generation networking technologies are used. While researchers have been making advances to the study of IoT and cloud services individually, a very little attention has been given to build a cost-effective connected living ecosystem while using next-generation networking technologies. The IoT-Cloud convergence for connected ecosystem has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of communications, architectures, protocols and designs of the next-generation wireless networking technologies. Nevertheless, many technical challenges need to be addressed before this potential can be realized.

This workshop aims to report high quality research on recent advances in various aspects of smart connected living, more specifically to the state-of-the-art approaches, methodologies and systems in the design, development, deployment and innovative use of networked services, tools and technologies for smart connected living. Authors are solicited to submit complete unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to the following topics of interest.: 

  • Mobile Edge Computing for smart connected living
  • Converged big data communication, cloud and IoT technologies for smart connected living
  • IoT-Cloud convergence for connected or smart transportation
  • Efficient capturing, processing, and streaming of connected data in the IoT-Cloud ecosystem
  • Multimedia IoT-Cloud services for smart connected living over next generation networks
  • Deep Learning/ Machine Learning based solutions for smart connected living
  • Security, privacy, and attacks in 5G-IoT smart connected ecosystems
  • Resource allocation in smart connected living for IoT-Cloud landscape
  • Social IoT-cloud computing techniques and approaches for smart connected living
  • Innovative network protocols, test beds, open platforms, and system architectures for smart connected living using IoT-Cloud landscape
  • IoT-Cloud big data fusion techniques
  • IoT –Cloud big data storage, processing, and analysis
