IoT Cloud Research Group




The IoT Cloud Research Group was founded in 2014 at the Software Engineering Department of the Institute of Informatics of the University of Szeged, Hungary. The main research interests of the group include the interoperation of cloud, fog and IoT technologies and the analysis of complex systems created with them. Members of the group are key developers of the MobIoTSim and DISSECT-CF simulation environments, and related research tools.
