SNCC 2017

The 3rd International Workshop on Sensor Networks and Cloud Computing (SNCC 2017)

Organized In Conjunction with Qshine 2017


Welcome to SNCC 2017!

SNCC 2016 ( was organized as a workshop in conjunction with Qshine 2016, which was held on 7-8 July 2016 in Seoul, South Korea. SNCC 2015 ( was organized as a special session of Qshine 2015, which was held on 19-20 August 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan.


Sensor networks and cloud computing (SNCC) have received tremendous attentions from both academia and industry, as they are emerging to own numerous exciting applications in Internet of Things, Machine to Machine and Cyber Physical Systems (e.g., industrial process control, video surveillance, structural health monitoring, mobile commerce, mobile learning, mobile gaming), which can fundamentally change the way people interact with the physical world.

Recently, integrating sensor networks with cloud computing is widely recognized to further enhance the performance of sensor networks or cloud computing applications, by utilizing the powerful cloud to store, process and share the data gathered by a variety of sensors. However, new research challenges need to be addressed in order to accelerate the development of these SNCC integrated applications. For instance, the mobile network bandwidth is still quite limited with the dramatically increasing mobile and cloud users. Intelligent resource management is required to provide users with services in an on-demand and scalable fashion. A secure mobile computing model is necessary to protect user privacy and data secrecy.

In this workshop, we solicit research papers with respect to all aspects of SNCC. The goal of this workshop is to bring together state-of-the-art research contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address various aspects of analysis, design, optimization, implementation, and application of SNCC.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Protocols for supporting real-time and reliable sensor data streaming
  • Energy-efficient sensor data gathering, transmission, traffic management, and sensor data management
  • Scalability, mobility issues in cross-layer design, and optimization for effective sensor data communications
  • Capacity modeling, performance analysis, and theoretical analysis in sensor networks
  • Cooperative transmission for multimedia delivery, and collaborative in-network processing in sensor networks
