Day by day the numbers of Internet of Everything (IoE) devices are increasing which produce massive amounts of data every day. Cloud computing handles such massive amount of data. Cloud computing is a model that provides on-demand computing, storage, and network resources with little or no interaction from service providers. A challenging issue in the cloud is resource scheduling and delay optimization to enhance cloud service providers' profits by ensuring the quality of services (QoS) demanded by users. Particularly in smart health care the response time plays an important role. In this paper, a task scheduling algorithm is proposed which assigns the resources based on the priority. The requests are classified into three categories highly delay sensitive, moderate delay sensitive and low delay sensitive based on the attribute values like blood pressure, heart rate and temperature. The execution time is then optimized by setting a threshold value in order to provide services with less delay. The overall performance is increased by 40.1% compared to other scheduling methods

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
