The 5th International Symposium on Intercloud and IoT (ICI 2018)

6-8 August 2018, Barcelona, Spain

Co-located with the IEEE FiCloud 2018 (

Intercloud aims to create a cloud of clouds in order to enable 
interconnection between heterogeneous clouds. Objectives are to share 
resources, support extreme workload, efficiently process big data and 
place data and compute power closer to places where they are needed 
more. Intercloud can also minimise the vendor lock-in problem so that 
users can use services offered by multiple clouds.

Intercloud can be used in a wide spectrum of applications including the 
IoT. For instance, according to the Cisco's Internet of Things Business 
Unit, Cisco plans to enhance IoT services through Intercloud in order to 
localise compute power and data processing where these are needed more - 
e.g., "sensors on a cargo ship can monitor whether the containers on 
board have shifted en route or gotten too hot or too cold. All those 
readings may add up to more data than is economical to send in real time 
to a data center half a world away via a narrowband satellite linkî 

The objective of the International Symposium on Intercloud and IoT (ICI) 
is to discuss and develop new models, methods, and techniques in order 
to realise the true vision of Intercloud and IoT services. It aims to 
provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in order to discuss 
ideas and share knowledge on various issues related to the theme of the 

Topics of the ICI symposium include (but not limited to):

- Architectures and models
- Integration and collaboration
- Network design and architecture
- Software systems
- Data processing and management
- Context-aware service provisioning
- Security, trust and privacy
- Fault tolerance and reliability
- Performance evaluation and modelling
- Network communication protocols
- Rules and policies
- Business models and standards
- Service level agreements
