The First International Workshop on Big Data and Secure Communications in IoT (BDSC-IoT)


in conjunction with 

The 5th International Conference on Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications (DependSys 2019)

Guangzhou, China, November 12-15, 2019

Aim and Scope


The emerging Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm aims to bring people, data, processes, and things together to fulfill our everyday lives. The market place for IOT is expected to grow rapidly due to a significant increase in the number of smart objects / devices, machine to machine connections, and smart wearables. According to CISCO, there will be 8.2 billion handhelds or personal mobile-ready devices, 3.2 billion M2M connections, and 601 million wearable devices by 2020. I oT systems like smart health monitoring, smart traffic, analytics and processing. CIoT data centers usually reside at a multi-hop distance from the source node that results in a long latency.Ares has a Wide Application Areas, the Range of IoT Including • eHealthcare, * ULGV Smart, Smart Lomography Türkiye Homes, Smart Cities, the Connected the Car and Industrial Automation. IoTs enable communication between computers and smart objects on a global scale. In addition, interconnectivity amongst the IoT devices requires new peer discovery methods, physical and MAC layer procedures that are different from traditional wired and wireless architectures. In IoT, a large number of data packets are transmitted across communication networks. The Functions like the Protocols and Access ™ Traffic Control. Such mechanisms need to be tuned to the Support and the Enhanced heterogeneous amounts of Requests in IoT. From security point of view, it is vital to address the security and privacy requirements, that is, authentication, integrity, nonrepudiation and confidentiality in the context of the IoT. Big produce the Data Devices IoT (BD) requested & Thought Is the Network. To process and provide broadband mobile Internet Networking of BD (whether batch and stream), it is essential to design and implement novel self-organizing spatially distributed networked computing platforms. Such frameworks should deal with several IoT structural and applicable limitations such as energy, bandwidth, coverage and latencies.Also, there are several challenges to be addressed to provide reliable connections to the massive number of resource-constrained IoT devices. Because of the low latency, low cost, low energy consumption, high failure rate and data transiency, the conventional communication protocols / techniques may not be suitable for these systems.


IoT systems (SecureIoT), which is heterogeneous imposed by the constraints imposed by the protocol stacks on various layers of BD analytics , reliable and secure communication technologies. Furthermore, how to handle the massive unstructured / semi-structured data generated by resource-constrained devices / sensors through the resource-limited communication infrastructure is another important issue to be addressed.


This workshop focuses on the latest data processing and processing techniques for heterogeneous IoT networks. In this direction, we invite researchers from academia, industries and governmental organizations to submit their novel works on system architectures, theoretical models / algorithms, system level simulations / experimental results, and hardware demonstration results in the related areas.
