PrestoCloud organized successfully the second special session on “Intelligent systems and services for cloud accessible, data-intensive computing, ISS-CLOUD” in the 9th IEEE International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications, in Zakynthos, Greece, 23-25 July 2018.
The special session focused on the integration of cloud computing with mobile services, which enables the development of systems that provide resources and services on an on-demand basis, process big data collected from mobile sensors, and support Internet of things (IoT) with massive cloud-based backend. Such systems may employ computational intelligence methods, utilize artificial intelligence approaches as well as decision making techniques for enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of computing infrastructures, increasing security and data privacy while making infrastructure configuration, deployment and maintenance easier.
Accepted papers included works on data recovery and security in cloud applications, fog computing intelligence, distributed complex event processing on clouds, as well as complex pattern classification and high dimensional cloud data analysis. PrestoCloud partners ICCS and UBITECH participated with papers which described works on facilitating situation awareness for pervasive cloud computing infrastructures and on adaptive edge and fog computing for Wide Area Video/Audio Surveillance, respectively.
