DICE 2020

First IEEE International Workshop on

Distributed and Intelligent Computing at the Edge

Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles

May 25-27, 2020

co-located with DCOSS 2020

The wide deployment of tiny IoT devices to provide seamless and ubiquitous connectivity with smart sensing paradigms calls for efficient resource management at the edge. Edge devices of today range from tiny sensor nodes to smartphones and now even flying UAVs. State-of-the-art applications at these edge devices expect near-to-zero latency, high bandwidth, and optimized resource management. Intelligent data processing, management, and response mechanisms are specially needed in the challenged and remote deployments where reaching cloud can consume considerable resources. For current and future IoT applications, there exist vast, exciting, and challenging opportunities for building a conducive edge ecosystem. We are now living in an exciting era where machine learning intersects with almost all major computing platforms. Our specific focus is on how to make edge devices intelligent by leveraging learning techniques. With such techniques, the need is to decouple centralized intelligence and develop truly distributed edge applications that gives power to edge devices of being truly independent to take key decisions on-the-fly.


The First IEEE Workshop on Distributed and Intelligent Computing at the Edge (DICE) seeks exciting, innovative research related to the design, implementation, and evaluation of small-scale as well as large-scale systems that host applications at the network edge. With a broad focus on actual edge computing platforms, DICE solicits contributions that aim to provide key insights learned from developing such systems. Thus, the topics of interest include (but are not limited to):


  • Development of intelligent edge computing platforms
  • Data collection, analysis, and inference methodologies
  • Edge solutions towards 5G integration
  • Addressing the networking challenges
  • Design and development of battery friendly algorithms
  • Intelligent and network-aware edge applications
  • Solutions for monitoring and troubleshooting the large-scale edge systems


Submission Details

  • The accepted papers get 8 pages in the same IEEE Volume as the main event
  • For providing high visibility to the authors, DICE will be held in parallel with the main event and not in a separate day
