1st Workshop on Cloud-to-Things continuum: towards the convergence of IoT, Edge and Cloud Computing – (Cloud2Things) 2021

24th Mar 2021

The workshop will take place from 10 to 13 May 2021 as part of the 21st IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2021).


The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss problems, solutions, open technical challenges, and perspectives of ongoing research activities concerning the orchestration of resources in the Cloud-to-Things continuum landscape. The Cloud-toThings continuum concept refers to the opportunity of taking advantage of a broad computing context that mixes Cloud, Edge and IoT resources, thus providing a “continuum” of computing services that applications will be able to access in a transparent and uniform fashion. One of the main challenges posed by a Cloud-to-Things unified computing environment consists in the design and implementation of a system capable of orchestrating (activating, deactivating, integrating, etc.) computing resources offered by heterogeneous computing infrastructures possibly owned by different providers. This workshop intends to investigate the technological challenges that the research community will have to face in order for the mentioned system to be workable in near future.


The University of Bologna is involved in the organisation of the workshop and, in particular,  Prof. Bellavista and Prof. Di Modica are involved in the the Technical Program Committee.
