The 1st International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing (ICFEC'2017)

Madrid, May 14th 2017



The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to Madrid for the 1st
International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing. The Conference will be held as
part of/in conjunction with IEEE/ACM CCGrid, which is sponsored by the IEEE
Computer Society and ACM (Association for Computing Machinery).

To satisfy the ever increasing demand for Cloud Computing resources, academics
and industry experts are now advocating for going from large-centralized Cloud
Computing infrastructures to smaller ones, massively distributed at the edge of
the network. The Fog and Edge Computing paradigms are expected to improve the
agility of cloud service deployments in addition to bringing computing resources
closer to end-users. Co-located with the IEEE/ACM International Conference on
Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing (CCGrid) in Madrid, Spain on May 14th 2017,
the first International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing will be a forum
gathering a large community around all the challenges related to this new
generation of Utility Computing. On the one hand, the development of Fog and
Edge clouds includes dedicated facilities, operating system, network and
middleware techniques to build and operate a set of small and geographically
distant data centers that host virtualized computing resources. On the other
hand, the use of Fog and Edge clouds requires to extend current programming
models and to propose new abstractions that will allow developers to design new
applications that take benefit from such massively distributed systems.

The conference seeks to attract theoretical and technical contributions to any
of the aforementioned challenges, from the management software stack to
domain-specific applications.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 * Data centers and infrastructures for Fog/Edge Computing
 * Middleware for Fog/Edge infrastructures
 * Programming models and runtime systems for Fog/Edge Computing
 * Scheduling for Fog/Edge infrastructures
 * Fog/Edge storage
 * Monitoring/metering of Fog/Edge infrastructures
 * Fog/Edge Computing applications
 * Latency/locality-critical applications
 * Legal issues in Fog/Edge clouds


 * Technical papers submission deadline: Dec. 16th, 2016
 * Authors notifications: Feb. 8th, 2017
 * Camera-ready paper: Feb. 26th, 2017


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


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.
