Call For Papers

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.

* Paper Submission: July 1 2020, 11:59 p.m. EDT
* Acceptance notifications: July 31, 2020
* Camera-ready papers: September 25, 2020
* Poster Submission: August 28, 2020 23:59pm EDT
* Poster Acceptance notifications: September 15, 2020
* Poster Camera-ready vision: September 25, 2020
* PhD Forum submission: September 25, 2020
* Conference: November 11-13, 2020

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

Papers will be judged on novelty, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. Submitted papers must be no longer than 12 pages excluding references.

The program committee is also soliciting industry and academic position papers that describe current advances and challenges in edge computing practice and academic research, and will be judged separately from papers in the research track of the conference. Such papers should follow the above submission instructions, with the exception that they may be no longer than 6 pages excluding references.

The Fifth ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing (SEC 2020) is calling for poster and demo submissions on topics that fall within the purview of SEC 2020 (see ). Posters provide an opportunity to present early-stage, not-yet-ready-for-prime-time research and receive valuable feedback from the community, while demos provide an opportunity to engage with concrete results of research. This year we especially encourage submission of early work from graduate students as way to feature their work and receive feedback.

Selection will be based on a 2-page extended abstract, evaluated in terms of technical merit, innovation, and the potential to stimulate interesting discussions and exchange of ideas at the conference. Extended abstracts of accepted posters/demos will be posted on the conference website and will be included in the conference proceeding. At least one author of each accepted poster or demo must register for the conference and present the poster remotely or in-person.

See for the latest information and updates.

The poster track is meant to introduce new or ongoing work and provide opportunities for authors to interact directly with conference attendees. Posters are especially suited for presenting controversial research directions that may generate discussion, or promising ideas not yet validated through extensive evaluation. Posters should describe novel work not published before. If your paper has been accepted to the conference, we encourage you to submit a demo for it.

Live demos provide an opportunity to give a flavor of real-life applications made possible by your system. Research prototypes as well as commercial products are welcome. Demonstrations of previously published systems are also welcome, and we encourage demo submissions from accepted SEC 2020 papers. Demos should be engaging and stimulate discussions. Demo abstracts should describe both the technology being showcased as well as the user experience of the demo.

Try to plan for the possibility of remote video and perhaps attendee participation in your demonstration. For physical presentations, tables, power, and wireless connectivity will be provided. If a demo requires additional special arrangements, please describe them clearly in your submission using a separate third page after the references (not part of the technical content of the abstract).
