The First International Workshop
IoT Challenges and Solutions

26-28 September 2019,
Saidia, Morocco

We have the pleasure in inviting you to join us for the first International Workshop on IoT Challenges and Solutions (IoT-C&S’19), which will be held at Be Live Collection Saïdia Hotel in the wonderful Moroccan “Blue pearl” city of Saïdia, from 26-28 September 2019, organized by MATSI LAB of Mohamed First University, Oujda – MOROCCO.

Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as a last-mile solution for connecting various cyber technologies to our daily life. It provides a platform for integrating and analyzing the distributed Things, Data, and Services. Currently, many IoT devices are connected with each other and are generating roughly 3.5 quintillion bytes of data on a daily basis. This data can be used to make predictive models, do analysis, and create a smart World around us by helping machines learn. Hence, empowered machines will act as smart assistants for us. However, despite the opportunities, we have to face potential challenges in IoT adoption.

The International Workshop on IoT Challenges and Solutions (IoT-C&S’19) aims to address the issues and solutions surrounding IoT systems including hardware and software of IoT devices, network scalability, connectivity, standards and technologies, security and privacy, data collection and analysis, machine learning and other analytics, services and applications of IoT.

The objective of IoT-C&S’19 Workshop is to provide an exceptional forum for researchers, PhD students, engineers, innovators, industrials and policy makers to exchange ideas, techniques and tools, raise awareness, and share experience related to all practical and theoretical aspects of IoT in Industry, healthcare, environmental monitoring, smart city, smart home, smart grid, smart transportation, and other smart applications. This workshop also aims to identify the emerging research topics and open issues for further researches in IoT technologies.
