The Department of Computer Science of Neapolis University Paphos is co-organiser of the 17th International Conference entitled DCOSS 2021 – International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems. The conference will take place at the Coral Beach Hotel from June 7 until June 9, 2021, with the participation of eminent scientists from around the world. The local chair of the conference is Dr. Zinon Zinonos, lecturer in IoT (Internet of Things) of the Department of Computer Science of the university.
In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant growth in the use of IoT and distributed sensor systems in a number of application areas, ranging from smart transport, energy and buildings, to factory automation, smart healthcare and environmental monitoring.
In order for smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we need to address a number of research challenges, including the tight integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security, privacy and trust.
DCOSS focuses on issues arising in the entire IoT and networked sensor systems stack, covering aspects of high-level abstractions, models and languages, novel algorithms and applications, system design approaches and architectures, as well as tools for simulated and real deployments.
