OVERVIEW
========

The recent development of wireless networking and mobile cloud computing initiates
an emerging cyber system called mobile/multi-access edge computing (MEC). MEC
moves computing and data processing capability from distant cloud datacenters to
edge servers that are closer to the mobile devices to offer users the lowest possible
latency, the highest possible bandwidth, and direct access to real-time network
services.

Although MEC is expected to largely improve the QoE for mobile users, it
is challenging to realize and utilize the MEC systems effectively and efficiently
due to its inherent heterogeneities. First, since a typical MEC datacenter is composed
of heterogenous resources such as CPU/GPU clusters, FPGAs, programable network routers,
etc., this heterogeneity is big challenge to the traditional orchestration systems.
In addition, due to the differences in scales, architectures, and Internet access
technologies, it is challenging to realize the coordination of multiple MEC
datacenters for conducting complicated tasks. Finally, the applications using MEC
are also heterogenous. Different applications have different objectives and metrics,
and correspondingly different flavors to specific MEC servers. Therefore, joint
optimization of multiple applications and the MEC orchestration has to be considered.
Addressing these issues efficiently will have significant importance to the future
mobile computing and communications technologies.

The objective of this workshop is to identify and address the challenges and
opportunities of developing and utilizing HMEC. Potential topics include but are
not limited to the following:

- Theory, architecture, platform, application, and tools for MEC
- Cloud computing and MEC in heterogenous environment
- Novel network architecture, protocol, and the other related technologies for MEC
- Vehicular network technologies employing MEC
- Heterogenous networks
- Theory, platform, and applications of Internet of things based on MEC
- Energy harvesting technologies and communications related to MEC
- Safety, security, and privacy for MEC
- Cooperative computing and communications for heterogenous MEC
- The practice and experience of Proof-of-Concept projects of MEC
- Related future trends and emerging technologies of MEC

All manuscripts should be converted to PDF format and uploaded to the Trackchair
system. Each submission must be at most 5 pages in length and conforms to the
double-column template provided by IEEE. You can download a template from
https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Accepted and
presented papers will be published in the IEEE VTC Spring 2018 Conference
Proceedings (Ei Compendex source) and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore.
