The International Workshop on New and Disruptive Technologies and Applications for Mobile Edge/Fog Computing - MobileEdgeCom 2019
Waikoloa, HI, USA, December 9-13, 2019
Co-located with The IEEE Global Communications Conference (IEEE Globecom 2019) - https://globecom2019.ieee-globecom.org/
The recent evolution of ICT has led to an increasing pervasiveness of sensing and computing, with the consequent generation of massive amount of data, calling for scalable and efficient decentralized approaches to data storage and elaboration. This has originated a progressive shift towards Fog and Smart-Edge nodes, mediating between the cloud and the end devices. The Fog/Edge computing paradigm is a decentralized model that transfers (part of) computing-intensive tasks from the cloud to intermediate (fog) nodes or to edge nodes. It typically leverages the computational capabilities of virtually any networked device, including resources such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and sensors. Within the context of cellular networks, The Edge Computing approach has led to Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), enabling operators to run applications and perform related processing tasks closer to the cellular customer, reducing network congestion while improving latency and application performance. Such a vision is further boosted by the advent of 5G technologies, and the relative softwarization and virtualization of the main functionalities within the cellular network. Many research issues are currently open in MEC. At the same time, MEC is paving the way to many disruptive and novel application and business models, unforeseen previously, by boosting the visionary concepts of smart cities and factories.
This workshop aims at collecting contributions highlighting challenges, state-of-the-art, and solutions to a set of currently open issues in MEC, including – but not limited to – performance, modelling, optimization, energy-efficiency, reliability, security, privacy and techno-economic aspects of Edge Computing. Through addressing these concerns while understanding their impacts and limitations, technological advancements will be channeled toward more sustainable/efficient platforms for tomorrow’s ever-connected systems and industrial applications. This workshop will welcome two kinds of contributions:
• Research papers on innovative ideas, applications and solutions within the context of Mobile Edge Computing, which identify challenges, report experiences, and discuss progress towards design, solutions for MEC;
• Position papers, describing revolutionary and visionary concepts related to Mobile Edge Computing and its applications, which identify vision/ideas of MEC where novel technologies taken from 5G, or even 6G, blockchain, virtualization are applied.
This workshop aims at bringing together leading researchers from both academia and industry, providing an opportunity for them to share their vision on Mobile Edge Computing and novel disruptive ideas, with the potential of opening up novel research directions and/or applications. The goal is to solicit new ideas, insights and inspiration for the current research on Mobile Edge/Fog Computing.
