4th International Conference on Cloud Computing

October 17–19, 2013 | Wuhan, People's Republic of China

Tutorial 1: Advances in Cloud-Assisted Mobile Computing and Pervasive Services


Abstract : Advances in mobile communication networks and increasing deployments of mobile smart devices have brought rich mobile experiences to end users. However, further improvement of service quality and large deployment of mobile pervasive services are hampered by resource constraints of mobile devices and bandwidth limitations of wireless networks. Recently, mobile cloud computing is emerging rapidly as an exciting new paradigm to extend the capabilities of mobile devices and platforms, which, in turn, are changing the industrial production and people's daily life. Developments of innovative pervasive mobile services, e.g., mobile video streaming, rich media dissemination, surveillance, e-gaming, e-health care, etc., can be greatly facilitated by mobile cloud computing platforms employing emerged and emerging technologies. This talk is to introduce some recent issues and applications related to cloud-assisted mobile computing and pervasive services.


Tutorial 2: Big Data, Cloud and Healthcare


Abstract : In this tutorial, it reviews the background and state-of-the-art of big data, cloud and healthcare. It first introduces the general background of big data, cloud and related technologies. It then introduces the general background, discusses the technical challenges, and reviews the latest advances. It finally examines the several representative healthcare applications of big data and cloud. These discussions aim to provide a comprehensive overview and big-picture to researchers of this exciting area.
