IEEE International Workshop on Fog and Edge computing in Internet of Things

in conjunction with IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things

15-18 April 2019 – Limerick, Ireland

Internet of Things is growing every day, and with this growth, industries need to find more efficient and effective ways to manage their data , communications and security issues. It has become clear that current cloud computing systems won’t necessarily be able to handle the entire load of data and computations – and that’s where fog and Edge computing come into play. The main intent of Fog computing is to perform computations at the endpoint (IoT device) instead of the cloud. Edge computing also helps to execute IoT based application by reducing points of failure, as each device independently operates and determines which data to store locally and which data to send to the cloud for further analysis. The main intent of fog and Edge computing is to improve efficiency and reduce the amount of data transported to the cloud for processing, analysis and storage. This is often done to improve efficiency, though it may also be used for security and compliance reasons. For critical IoT based applications such as smart health care, virtual reality based applications and smart agriculture applications needs an adoption of the concept of fog and Edge on cloud. As in every new technology, some challenges face the vision of the Fog and Edge Computing, which are the resource provisioning strategies, scheduling and data security concerns. This workshop aims to investigate the opportunities and requirements for Fog and Edge Computing dominance. In addition, it seeks for novel contributions that help mitigating Fog and Edge Computing challenges. That is, the objective of workshop is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange new ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of Fog and Edge Computing for IoT based applications. Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not limited to:


Topics of interest

  • Infrastructures for Fog/Edge Computing
  • Middleware for Fog/Edge infrastructures
  • Programming models and runtime systems for Fog/Edge Computing

Paper Submission Guidelines

Papers submitted to the symposium should be written in English conforming to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Format. The paper should be submitted through the symposium Edas submission system. Prospective authors are invited to submit full papers up to 6 pages in length and authors are allowed to purchase up to 2 extra pages. Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE explore. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE after the conference.
