As a novel technology, cloud computing implementations have been booming in recent years. Align with the development of data mining and big data, cloud computing has been an efficient approach for delivering intelligent services and forming advanced distributed systems. Empowering the existing infrastructure by using cloud computing techniques has been considered a dramatical significant issue for both acadamia and industry. Therefore, making cloud computing “smart” has a giant demand in multiple fields, from tele-health to e-learning, from vehicular systems to mobile applications.
IEEE SmartCloud 2020 aims to collect recent academic achievements in novel techniques, developments, empirical studies, and new developments in cloud computing. Innovative technical applications in clouds are highly encouraged. The objective of IEEE SmartCloud 2020 is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange their new ideas, novel results, work in progress and experience on all aspects of smart computing and cloud computing.
The IEEE SmartCloud 2020 - Now Taking Place Virtually.
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of IEEE SmartCloud 2020 into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE SmartCloud 2020 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE SmartCloud 2020 will no longer take place in Washington DC, USA and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. For questions, please contact email@example.com.
The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE xplore to be indexed by EI Compendex, Web of Science, and Scopus.
IEEE Computer Society Open Conference Statement
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society and all of its conferences. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents. Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.
A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination. For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
IEEE Computer Society meetings, conferences and workshops must provide a welcoming, open and safe environment, that embraces the value of every person, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability. All individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination, including harassment based on any of the above factors.
IEEE Event Conduct and Safety Statement
IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thought provoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.
IEEE has no tolerance for discrimination, harassment, or bullying in any form at IEEE- related events. All participants have the right to pursue shared interests without harassment or discrimination in an environment that supports diversity and inclusion. Participants are expected to adhere to these principles and respect the rights of others. IEEE seeks to provide a secure environment at its events. Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here, to on site staff, security or venue personnel, or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
