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

The 7th International Conference on Future Internet of Things and Cloud 
(FiCloud 2019)

26-28 August 2019, Istanbul, Turkey

Technical co-sponsorship: IEEE-CS TCI

The Internet of Things (IoT) vision is to provide 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.
