*First F2C-DP Workshop*


*1**st **Workshop on Fog-to-Cloud Distributed Processing*


/Co-located with Euro-Par 2017/

/Santiago de Compostela, Spain, August 28, 2017/


Future service execution in different domains (e.g. smart cities, 
e-health, smart transportation, etc.), will rely on a large and highly 
heterogeneous set of distributed devices, located from the edge to the 
cloud, empowering the development of innovative services. Such a 
distributed scenario is demanding substantial research efforts towards a 
novel management architecture, enabling a coordinated and efficient 
management of the whole set of resources from the edge up to the cloud. 
Ongoing efforts are already devoted to overcome some of the envisioned 
management challenges, today visible through two main incipient research 
initiatives, such as the OpenFog Consortium reference architecture or 
the recently proposed Fog-to-cloud (F2C).

In such envisioned scenario, the main objective for the proposed 
workshop is to set the ground for researchers, scientist and members of 
the industrial community to interact each other, fueling new discussions 
in the emerging area coming out when shifting distributed services 
execution towards the edge. Analyzing the way existing programming 
models and distributed processing strategies may support such a scenario 
and to what extent these solutions should be extended or just replaced, 
is also fundamental to support the expected evolution in edge computing. 
The workshop aims at opening new avenues for research in a very 
innovative and challenging scenario.

The workshop aims at bringing together the community of researchers 
interested in new programming paradigms, specially tailored to combined 
fog and cloud computing scenarios

As a workshop series, this initial mF2C workshop invites authors to 
present ideas about the application of programming models applied to 
distributed scenarios leveraging the particular constraints of combined 
fog and cloud computing scenarios. Submissions must not be previously 
submitted anywhere and must meet the submission guidelines for regular 
papers in the Euro-Par conference. The accepted papers will be published 
at Euro-Par conference proceedings.

*Workshop Chairs:*

Rosa M. Badia, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain

Ana Juan, Atos, Spain

Xavi Masip, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain

*Important dates:*

Paper submission: May 5, 2017

Author notification: June 16, 2017

*Submission guidelines*

Submissions in PDF format should not exceed 12 pages in the Springer 
LNCS style, which can be downloaded from the Springer Web site 
<ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip>. Paper 
submission is handled electronically (EasyChair). The 12 pages limit is 
a hard limit. It includes everything (text, figures, references) and 
will be strictly enforced by the submission system. Complete LaTeX 
sources must be provided for accepted papers. Papers should be typeset 
using the single column format. All submitted research papers will be 
peer-reviewed. Only contributions that are not submitted elsewhere or 
currently under review will be considered.

The workshop proceedings will be published in a separate LNCS workshop 
volume after the conference. Registered workshop participants will 
receive an electronic copy of the volume by email. All authors of 
accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright form.

*Paper submission*

Papers should be submitted through EasyChair <https://easychair.org/>.
