Due to the impact of COVID-19 to the research community, SEC '20 has extended its paper submission deadline to June 26, 2020.

The Fifth ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing (SEC) seeks to present exciting, innovative research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and deployment of computer systems and applications at the network edge. SEC is a forum for top researchers, engineers, students, entrepreneurs, and government officials come together under one roof to discuss the opportunities and challenges that arise from rethinking cloud computing architectures and embracing edge computing. SEC takes a broad view of edge computing and solicits contributions from many fields of systems practice that embrace any aspect of edge computing. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • edge computing infrastructure and edge-enabled applications
  • cellular infrastructure for edge computing
  • edge computing as an enabler of 5G applications and services
  • networking, e.g., from clients to the edge, and from the edge to the cloud
  • IoT hubs
  • algorithms and techniques for machine learning and AI at the edge
  • geo-distributed analytics and indexing on edge nodes
  • hardware architectures for edge computing and devices
  • monitoring, management, and diagnosis in edge computing
  • resource management and reliability for edge computing
  • security and privacy issues
  • vehicular, enterprise, and manufacturing systems
  • programming models and toolkits
