The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day or 2 days. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Workshop proposals are accepted until:

The scope of the workshop will be dedicated to the new approaches concerning wireless cloud technologies, experiments, modeling and theoretical approaches to cover all aspects from the fundamentals to the applications beyond. This workshop allows to share and discuss the current challenges that researchers and corporations are facing towards designing and implementing wireless cloud-based architectures and also providing services and applications on top of these networks.

• Internet of Things;
• Network function virtualization;
• Software-defined networking;
• Reliability and availability for Wireless cloud-based services;
• Consistency and transparency for Wireless cloud-based services;
• Trust and security of wireless cloud-based services;
• Cloud-based mobile systems and services;
• Architecture for Internet-based virtual computing environments.

Insider threats are current or former employees who have or have had privileged access within an organization and who are or may be engaged in malicious behavior associated with fraud, theft of IP, espionage, sabotage, and workplace violence. These employees may cause devastating consequences because of their knowledge of and access to employers’ systems and information. The scope of this workshop is to concentrate on mitigating insider threats through technical approaches rather than behavioral approaches. This workshop will bring together researchers with the aim of sharing algorithms, anomaly detection techniques, creation of reliable test data, software applications for detecting insider threats, active and passive indicators, visualization methods, statistical measures, etc.
Topics: insider threat detection algorithm active and passive indicators anomaly detection predictive analytics for detecting concerns insider threat detection visualization software Development and testing methods for detecting insider threat Innovate statistical measures to determine effectiveness of technical solutions Novel software based technologies for preventing, detecting, and responding to insider threats Case studies showing proof of concept of technical solutions
