*The First IEEE International Workshop on Smart Living with IoT, Cloud, and
Edge Computing (SLICE 2018)*
Barcelona, Spain. April 23-26, 2018

(Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Spain Section)

Colocated and in conjunction with

The Fifth IEEE International Conference on Software Defined Systems
(SDS-2018) and The Third IEEE International Conference on Fog and Mobile
Edge Computing (FMEC-2018).


Call for Papers

Smart health, smart cities, smart industries, smart agriculture, smart
environment, smart transportation, smart homes, smart education, smart
business, smart energy, smart grids, and so on are the components that aid
the mankind for smart living. However, they require, typically, design and
development of innovative technologies, standards, and protocols apart from
their architectures and frameworks. IoT has emerged as an extension to
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) with the low-cost and Internet-enabled
solution for connecting and accessible anything from anywhere. In addition,
such smartness derived due to the artificial intelligence yields in the
production of tremendous amounts of data. The data increases as a
baby-boomer requiring efficient tools to analyze and extract suitable
inferences for services in order to extend smart living. Cloud, Edge and
Big Data acquired enormous attention in the light of massive data storage
and analytics. With the large cohorts of gazette shrewdness and hi-tech
population, the infrastructure, service delivery becomes expensive and
difficult to manage for cities and governments. Automating systems through
utilization of IoT, Cloud, Edge, Big Data, and M2M tools and technologies
demonstrate great opportunity to reduce operating costs significantly,
utilize those savings more effectively, and provide better services to
communities for the smarter living. This workshop provides a platform to
the researchers to publish their innovative ideas, extensive analysis of
their comparative studies, critical review of existing research and
position papers in the above areas to meet the smart living requirements.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

*Platform architectures
*Data analytics
*Privacy-preserving data mining
*Big data integrity and confidentiality
*Data and knowledge as a service
*Security and privacy applications
*Real-time and stream processing techniques and algorithms
*Real-life case studies
*Proactive/predictive and advanced machine learning models
*Simplified and distributed data processing techniques
*Ubiquitous machine learning
*Fog computing
*Smart living data warehouse
*Soft computing techniques
*Resource utilization and Resource Management
*Security and Trust
*Mobile Computing
*Application Development
*Wireless Sensor Networks
*Mobile Data Services
*High Performance Computing

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline: January 31, 2018 *( EXTENDED DEADLINE )*
Notification to Authors: February 20th, 2018
Camera Ready Submission: March 5th, 2018

Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings

Papers must be 6 pages maximum in IEEE format, 10pt font using the IEEE
8.5" x 11" two-column format, single space, A4 format. All papers should be
in PDF format and submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full
paper must not exceed the stated length (including all figures, tables, and
references). The Papers selected for presentation will appear in the FMEC
Proceedings, which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and be
submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion.

Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not
following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Also,
submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not
appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact
the Program Chair for further information or clarification.

Submission System

We are pleased to invite you to submit original contributions to SLICE 2018
via the official submission system at
rences/?conf=slice2018. This can include, technical and experimental,
theoretical, conceptual, or a survey. All submissions will be peer-reviewed
on the basis of relevance, originality, importance, and clarity.

Papers should be submitted electronically by the deadline to
