The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to Larnaca, Cyprus for the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing. The Conference will be held as part of/in conjunction with IEEE/ACM CCGrid, 2019, which is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and ACM (Association for Computing Machinery).
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is incorporating “things” from the physical world into the Internet environment to enhance the monitoring and intelligent control of physical, digital and social systems. Such things include smart infrastructures like power grids with sensing and actuation capabilities, mobile platforms like smart phones and vehicles, and consumer electronics and appliances such as refrigerators and healthcare devices. In cloud-centric IoT applications, the observational streams from these things at the edge of the network are extracted, accumulated and processed centrally at public/private clouds, and the responses are communicated back to the things, leading to significant latencies and bandwidth costs.
To satisfy the ever-increasing demand for computing resources from emerging applications such as IoT, academics and industry experts are now advocating to supplement large cloud data centers with micro data centres. These micro data centres, also called Fogs, are located at the edge of the network, closer to a user (in the spatial and/or network topology) than cloud data centres. Further, edge devices such as smart phones and gateways themselves have non-trivial compute capacity and are even closer to the user. As a result, it is possible to utilize such edge and fog resources to off-load computation that would traditionally have been carried out at the cloud.
Referred to as “Fog/Edge computing”, this paradigm is expected to improve the agility of cloud service deployments, make use of opportunistic and cheap computing, and leverage the network latency and bandwidth diversities between these resources. On the one hand, the development of fog and edge computing infrastructure requires examining operating systems, virtualization and containers, and middleware techniques for fabric management. On the other hand, the use of fog and edge computing paradigm requires extensions to current programming models and development of new abstractions that will allow developers to design novel applications that can benefit from such massively distributed systems. This also opens up other challenges in: security, privacy and trust of the edge and fog resources; resource management for mobile, transient and constrained resources; distributed data, state and context management; and emerging domains like autonomous vehicles and deep learning over such platforms.
The conference seeks to attract contributions covering both theory and practice over system software and domain-specific applications in these areas. Some representative topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PDF format. Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed 10 letter-size (8.5 x 11) pages including all figures, tables and references using the IEEE format for conference proceedings. See formatting templates for details: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
Submissions not conforming to these guidelines may be returned without review. The official language of the conference is English. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on technical strength, originality, significance, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees.
The proceedings will be published through the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services. Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding the page limit, or not appropriately structured may not be considered.
The paper submission online system is https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfec2019.
Proceedings will be published through the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services. Paper submitted could be accepted as REGULAR paper (10 pages) or SHORT papers (6 pages), depending on the reviewer recommendations.
Authors of highly rated papers from ICFEC 2019 will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue that we expect to appear with the Journal of Software: Practice and Experience (SPE) published by Wiley Press.
