Eight Workshop on Management of Cloud and Smart City Systems (MoCS 2018)*
*The Twenty-Third IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC 
*June 25th, 2018, Natal, *
/(Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Communications Society)/

*Important Dates**
**Submission: April 2nd, 2018**
**Notification: May 7 th, 2018**
**Camera-ready: May 14th, 2018**
**Workshop: June 25, 2018*

The last years have framed a permanent change of vision of Cloud 
systems. Nowadays, the most important stakeholders such as private 
companies, public agencies and research communities rely on the Cloud 
not only for sharing hardware infrastructures (such as the IaaS 
services) but also, and more importantly, for the software as well as 
for the data services. Nevertheless, most of the players today require 
also to analyze data available on the Cloud with a holistic approach 
provided often by big data analytics techniques.

Under this respect, services designed for a complex scenarios like the 
Smart Cities and Industry 4.0 scenarios benefit of such a new era of the 
Cloud. The complexity of human dynamics in a city can be better analyzed 
by decentralizing the infrastructure, integrating and opening the data 
and sharing the services. All of such features are the core level of 
modern Cloud systems. Despite such a rapid (re)evolution of Cloud 
systems, it is still unclear whether current solutions are able to 
withstand the abrupt and unpredictably changes imposed by the emergent 
application scenarios. Moreover, if only effective Cloud management 
solutions could pave the way to efficient Green computing systems for 
the processing of real-world Big Data knowledge base and streams, so far 
only a few seminal works have studied reciprocal benefits and challenges 
of Cloud and Green solutions for Big Data in large-scale Internet-wide 
deployment environments. That is case of the upcoming Industry 4.0 

The MoCS workshop started following the Cloud stream 7 years ago. Our 
mission is to keep the flow of novelty of Cloud systems and to put on 
the foreground all the above issues, with a particular attention this 
year on the convergence of Cloud systems together with Smart City 
systems to support Big Data for Industry 4.0 scenarios.

*Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:*

  * Experiences on the use of Cloud systems when applied to services
    designed for Smart Cities;
  * Analytical and simulation models and tools to measure systems
    scalability and to achieve resource saving in socio-technical Smart
    City systems;
  * Novel adaptive management solutions for scalable, maintainable,
    cost-effective Cloud provision, at all software stack layers;
  * New models and paradigms for the management of Cloud services at the
    host level, within/between data centres (intra- /inter-domain);
  * Big Data flows processing for Industry 4.0 scenarios;
  * Assessment of the relationship between IoT and Cloud systems when
    applied to Industrial IoT scenarios;
  * Experiences on the (re)use of open platforms for services designed
    for Smart Cities integrated with Cloud systems.

*Workshop Co-Chairs*
