From Ubiquitous Sensing to Cloud Computing: Technologies and Applications

Call for Papers

With the advances of sensing technologies (e.g., smart devices, wireless sensor networks, and Internet of Things) and cloud computing, there have been a large number of applications not only exploiting the sensor network to collect data but also using the cloud computing to discover desired information. Ubiquitous sensing is a hot but complex topic in a large number of research areas in last years. It can collect a great volume of data from various applications to detect certain events. In addition, cloud computing is usually used to handle such “big data” from sensors and to discover feasible information and knowledge. Therefore, integration between ubiquitous sensing and cloud computing is a significant research issue. Many research projects have been investigating algorithms, technologies, and platforms to make various ubiquitous applications more innovative.

This special issue will seek excellent work which focuses on the research and development, regarding ubiquitous sensing, cloud computing, and their integration (ubiquitous sensing and cloud computing: USCC), including the technologies, algorithms, and platforms. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Ubiquitous sensing services and applications
  • Sensing platforms by mobile devices, WSN, and Internet of Things
  • Cloud computing for large-scale sensor data stream processing
  • Innovative applications of cloud-based sensing architecture
  • Sensor big data streaming integration for sensor networks
  • Integration of ubiquitous sensing and cloud computing
  • Information fusion platform from multiple sensing systems
