Workshop WCCA

Workshop on Cognitive Computing and Analytics (WCCA 2019)

colocated to COLLABORATECOM 2019

August 19-22, 2019
London, Great Britain


We live in a constantly connected and data-driven world. IoT takes us into a new ubiquitous connectivity, computing, and communications era. In the past decade, IoT has witnessed worldwide efforts from industry to academia including service providers, network operators, standard development organisations, and academic community. However, most of the efforts have been focused on the technical aspects of communication, computing, and connectivity, etc. To fulfil its potential and deal with increasing challenges, we believe that comprehensive cognitive capability need to be taken into consideration to empower IoT with high-level intelligence. Cognitive IoT enables the smart objects not only to see, hear, and smell the physical world, but also to learn, think, and understand physical and social worlds by themselves. This workshop expects to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to share their expertise and ideas to the challenges and open issues of Cognitive Computing and Analytics.

Original research articles are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Cognitive computing in ubiquitous systems.
  • Cognitive networks
  • Cognitive wireless sensor networks
  • Cognitive Internet of Things
  • Cognitive analytics
  • Cognitive devices
  • Massive data analytics
  • Visual analytics and decision-making
  • Service oriented IoT
  • Service oriented architecture (SOA) for IoT
  • Data-Driven SOA
  • Discovery-Driven SOA
  • Semantic service management of IoT
  • Sensor fusion
  • Self-healing wireless sensor networks
  • Cooperative sensing
  • Software-defined networking
