The sources of data, as well as the target services, will be mostly built over small resource constrained devices, like smartphones, IoT sensors, wearable devices, data centers, backbone networks and so on. Consequently, specific crucial system related challenges are bound to step up, like energy usage, storage optimization, computation efficiency, mobility, system management, network monitoring and deployment planning, network policy control, supporting ubiquitous connectivity among various devices and information sources, etc. We plan to consider such system related issues during the development of the services.
