Call for Papers

The First IEEE/ACM Symposium on Edge Computing seeks original research papers on the design, implementation, evaluation and deployment of systems that embody any aspect of edge computing. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- cloudlet-enabled applications - software infrastructure for cloudlets
- fog computing infrastructure and applications - edge-based analytics and indexing
- scalable systems for resource-intensive sensing - edge computing for mobile health and augmented cognition
- decentralized IoT hubs - hardware architectures for edge computing
- tamper-resistant infrastructure - management techniques for dispersed infrastructure
- security and privacy issues in edge computing - vehicular systems
- cellular infrastructure for edge computing - tactile Internet applications
- edge-mediated crowd-sourcing - software infrastructure for cloudlets
- edge-based fault-tolerance, replication, consistency and availability - edge-based real time applications and quality of service
- load balancing and service selection at the edge - edge-based authentication, authorization and billing
- resource provisioning and metering of edge infrastructure - deployment and management of edge services
- programming models and tookits for edge computing - operating system support for edge services, including virtualization and containerization
- interactions between the edge and the cloud - network function virtualization (NFV) at the edge
- software defined networking (SDN) for edge computing - real-time context computing
