Scientific Scope:

The scope of SaCoNet is to deal with the growing smart communications fields embedded in complex systems for a wide variety of applications in the future generation of network and cloud computing technologies. SaCoNet focuses on how smart communications and ICT networks impact not only on network technologies (protocols, equipment, algorithms, power, MANET, VANET, etc.), but also on creating collective and individual awareness about the multiple sustainability threats which our society is facing nowadays at social, environmental and political levels, considering a wide family of applications (healthcare, underwater, vehicular, robotic, economics, etc).

Indeed, autonomous applications embedded in complex configurations and dynamic environments have rapidly expanded from classical applications where different modular devices, actuators and sensors interact closely. This has considerably impacted the control of a given system in a centralized manner. Current trends are to propose new autonomic architecture schemes that manage and control future emerging networks: Sky of clouds, Internet of things, Smart Grids, Smart Cities, etc. The evolution of Internet usages appeals for more quality guarantees in order to support stringent services. Aligned to these trends, the Open Data initiative fuels novel development scenarios, business opportunities and markets. In this context, for example, Healthcare and wellness applications such as helping elderly people, assisting dependent persons, habitat monitoring in a smart environment constitute some of the potential scenarios of convergence between autonomous systems and smart network technologies. These applications, which are based on high-level commands, accomplish some specific tasks, reveal new challenges regarding mechanic design, portability, acceptability, power support and efficiency, control theory, cost, economic aspects, scalability, security, etc.

Another key challenge arises at business level, since existing models do not cover added value services. Before investing in these infrastructures, providers must be ensured to perceive incentive compensations. This conference will highlight the overlapping of these two domains of autonomous systems and the smart network technologies devoted for different applications for a large variety of domains. Issues related to concepts, new technologies, test-beds, and protocols will elicit particular attention. SaCoNeT solicits papers dealing with Smart Communications in (not limited to):
