CIoT 2022 Keynotes

Keynote #1

Title: Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing
Resource Allocation and Scheduling Issues

Abstract: Cloud computing has been successfully adopted as a computing paradigm. However, due to the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications, traditional Cloud computing is insufficient in transferring very large amounts of data generated by IoT devices. As a result, Fog and Mist computing have appeared as computing models to provide lower transmission latency. Fog computing extends the cloud to the network edge, closer to where the IoT data are generated. Mist computing is a lightweight form of fog computing, that brings fog capabilities even closer to the IoT layer. Typically the IoT applications are time-critical and the main goal is meeting deadlines. Therefore, appropriate resource allocation and scheduling techniques are required to increase the efficiency of cloud, fog and mist computing infrastructures.
In this talk we will present potential research directions driving the development of new computing models. Furthermore, novel techniques for efficient resource allocation and scheduling in cloud, fog and mist computing architectures will be discussed and analysed.

Keynote #2

Title: Pushing Intelligence to the Edge of Internet of Things: A new Paradigm enabling Next-Generation Smart Systems of Systems

Abstract: Internet of Things will not be only a new worldwide network interconnecting trillions of (smart) devices but, most importantly, a platform (system of systems) where to develop a new wave of (cyber-physical) services for humans and machines. In this context, in order to build IoT systems, the so-called IoT-Edge-Cloud continuum paradigm is having tremendous focus from the research community as well as from the industry. This paradigm can therefore be an enabler to push intelligence from the core of the network to its edge: from centralized data mining to embedded machine learning in tiny IoT devices to federated machine learning involving networks of edge devices. Moreover, methodologies are emerging to support analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of solutions involving mining and machine learning at the IoT edge. In this talk, we will focus on IoT from both the architectural and machine learning at the edge perspectives. Finally, some use cases will be discussed related to mobile edge computing, ambient assisting living environments, and intelligent transportation systems.
