Currently, there is a growing demand for embedded systems in several areas e.g. agricultural, industrial, civil, transportation and residential. The fast growth of computing power on microprocessors and microcontrollers, and the higher connectivity has led to a whole new class of applications, such as autonomous vehicle systems (air, ground, underwater, etc.) and mobile robots. Moreover, depending on the application, these systems are not only embedded systems, but critical embedded systems as they deal with risk related to lives and high value assets.
Due to the high connectivity provided by the Internet of Things and the flexibility of Cloud Computing-based systems, a large number of devices can currently be deployed in areas of interest that are likely to be considered critical. Meeting very specific requirements on communications is mandatory to guarantee that sensitive tasks are accurately performed on targeted environments.
WoCCES aims at the integration of researchers working on the field of communications in critical embedded systems including Connected Vehicles, Internet of Things, Smart Cities, Cloud and Fog Computing, Security, Cryptography, and Privacy.
