Paper Submission Deadline - 5th November 2018


The Internet of Things (IoT) coupled with Big Data is considered as the
pillars of next-gen technologies and are set to transform and disrupt many
areas of business and everyday life. The fourth edition of Workshop on Wild
and Crazy Ideas on the interplay between IoT and Big Data (WACI 2019) will
continue the tradition set by previous editions of this workshop in
bringing together researchers, industries and practitioners to present and
discuss their latest achievements and innovations in the area of IoT and
Big Data.

We welcome submissions that identify challenges, report experiences, and
discuss progress towards design, solutions or vision/ideas of IoT and Big
Data applications. Contributions describing techniques applied to
real-world problems, novel networking architectures, system designs and
applications and interdisciplinary research involving integration of IoT
devices (including wearables), mobile, edge and cloud resources and machine
learning techniques are especially encouraged.

Relevant topics include but are not limited to:
- Applications, case studies and deployments of IoT and Big Data systems
- Novel system, networking, service architectures for specific IoT verticals
- Trust, Security, Privacy, and Authentication in IoT
- Dependability, adaptation, intermittency, and assembly in IoT
- Designing and deploying IoT systems for healthcare, retail,
manufacturing, transportation and security
- Deployments and evaluation of sensor networks in large-scale industrial
- Experiences in managing wearable devices, smart-home systems and mobile
sensor networks
- Novel system designs, deployments and applications of aerial vehicles
- Last-mile communication challenges and novel networking protocols
- Use of low power wireless technologies in IoT devices and applications
- System designs to balance network delay, network throughput, and device
energy trade-offs
- Challenges and solutions in IoT data and stream processing at the edge
and in the cloud
- Design and evaluation of machine learning models on IoT data
- High dimensional big data (images, videos) analysis using machine/deep

Keynote Speakers:
1) Prof. Saurabh Bagchi, Purdue University, USA
2) Prof. Shonali Krishnaswamy, CTO AIDA, Singapore
