----------------------Call for Papers 

The 8th International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud 
(FiCloud 2021),

23-25 August 2021, Rome, Italy


Cloud is a modern computing platform for delivering on-demand computing 
services to service consumers over the Internet. Computing services 
include, for example, storage, memory, compute power, databases, and 
networking among others. Cloud services are generally provided using 
SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and IaaS 
(Infrastructure-as-a-Service). Unlike conventional distributed 
computing, cloud offers flexibility, scalability, efficiency and 
elasticity in service provisioning.

The Internet of Things (IoT) provides a dynamic and global network 
infrastructure which is characterized by intelligent and self 
configuring capabilities. IoT is considered as an integral part of the 
future Internet. It is based on interoperable communication protocols in 
order to enable the interaction and integration of virtual as well as 
physical Things such as computers, smart devices, sensors, cars, 
refrigerators, food packages, medicines, etc. Things can be seamlessly 
integrated into the information network and interaction can be made 
through the provision of intelligent interfaces. In not so distant 
future, IoT will be forcing its way into every aspect of our lives and 
technologies including smart homes, smart cities, environment and 
nature, green energy, food, medicine, automotive, aerospace and 
aviation, telecommunication, and so on.

IoT is generally characterized by real world and small Things, limited 
capacity, constrained devices and the consequential issues such as less 
reliability, security and privacy. Cloud computing on the other hand 
deals mainly with virtual world and has unlimited capabilities in terms 
of storage and processing power. Thus cloud and IoT are the main 
complementary aspects of the future Internet. IoT can benefit from the 
unlimited capabilities and resources of cloud computing. Similarly, 
cloud can benefit from IoT by extending its scope to deal with real 
world things in a more distributed and dynamic manner.

The theme of this conference is to promote the state of the art in 
scientific and practical research of the IoT and cloud computing. It 
provides a forum for bringing together researchers and practitioners 
from academia, industry, and public sector in an effort to present their 
research work and share research and development ideas in the area of 
IoT and cloud computing.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline: 10 March 2021
Authors Notification: 20 May 2021
Final Manuscript Due: 15 June 2021

Conference Venue:

The organizing committee is carefully monitoring the Covid-19 situation. 
The safety and well-being of the conference participants is the main 
priority. The committee will confirm by Spring 2021 of whether to hold 
the conference onsite in Rome or as an online event.

Paper submission and Publication:

Authors are requested to submit papers reporting original research 
results and experience. The page limit for full papers is 8 pages and 
for short papers is 6 pages. Papers should be prepared using IEEE 
two-column template. See instructions on the conference website  

All papers accepted for this conference are planned to be published in 
the conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Conference 
Publishing Service (CPS). The proceedings will be submitted to the 
IEEE-Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society (CSDL) digital libraries. The 
proceedings are also submitted for indexing through IEE INSPEC, EI 
(Compendex), Thomson ISI, and other indexing services.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions 
of their papers for special issues in international journals (see 
conference website).
