Recent technological advances have completely changed the computing world. These advances are more human-centric and provide real-life solutions to issues. Internet of Things-based Cloud computing provides smart and faster real-life solutions in many areas such as eTransportation, eHealth, eAgriculture, etc. Applications being designed for the Internet of Things involve many challenges related to the designing of frameworks, algorithms, protocols and architecture.

The goal of this special issue is to present the latest and most innovative contributions concerning real-life use of the Internet of Things. It aims to publish high-quality papers that push research in all the facets of Internet of Things-based cloud computing. Contributors may present open technical evaluation and comparisons with existing standards. Theoretical as well as experimental studies related to real-life scenarios are encouraged.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Advances in Computing and Data Sciences (ICACDS-2016), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
