Special issue on Edge Computing in Pervasive Systems
Pervasive and Mobile Computing, Elsevier B. V.

Edge computing is the utilization of computation / storage / connectivity resources available at the “edge” of the Internet: mobile user terminals (e.g., smart phones, tablets), smart objects (e.g., IoT sensors and actuators), access network devices (e.g., WiFi routers, cellular base stations). Calling back from remote datacenter cloud functions and deploying them on edge devices create a new world of opportunities for pervasive and mobile computing applications and services, which may benefit from very low latency, increased bandwidth, and immediate availability of user context (e.g., geographical position, radio network information, local network topology). This new network calls for novel control and data forwarding mechanisms to account for its intrinsic characteristics such as volatility, its distributed nature, and the decoupling of functions among heterogeneous hardware infrastructures.

This special issue invites technical papers that focus on both theoretical and applied research contributions and that present original ideas, analytical and simulation results, and real-world experiences in the context of smart edge computing.

This special issue will focus on (but will not be limited to) the following topics:

- Integration of edge computing in 5G (and beyond) technologies
- Analytics, streaming, and real-time processing at the edge
- Data storage, distribution, and management in edge systems
- Edge computing for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT applications
- Distributed Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning solutions for edge systems
- Security, privacy, and trustworthiness at the edge
- Edge for the realization of cyber-physical pervasive systems
- Distributed consensus and ledger technologies for edge computing
- Communication protocols and technologies for edge networking
- Programming languages and computation abstractions for edge computing
- Modeling and performance evaluation of pervasive edge computing systems
- Integration of edge computing in fog / (multi-)cloud scenarios
- Lightweight virtualization at the edge to enable pervasive applications
- New network architectures for cellular deployments in distributed infrastructures
