The Third International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing 
Barcelona, Spain. April 23-26, 2018

_*FMEC2018 Call for Papers:*_
Cloud computing provides large range of services and virtually unlimited 
available resources for users. New applications, such as virtual reality 
and smart building control, have emerged due to the large number of 
resources and services brought by cloud computing. However, the 
delay-sensitive applications face the problem of large latency, 
especially when several smart devices and objects are getting involved 
in human’s life such as the case of smart cities or Internet of Things. 
Therefore, cloud computing is unable to meet the requirements of low 
latency, location awareness, and mobility support. To solve this 
problem, researchers have introduced a trusted and dependable solution 
through the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC) to put the services 
and resources of the cloud closer to users, which facilitates the 
leveraging of available services and resources in the edge networks. By 
this, we are moving from the core (cloud data centers) to the edge of 
the network closer to the users. FMEC dependability is based on 
providing user centric service. The purpose of Fog and the Mobile Edge 
Computing is to run the heavy real-time applications at the network edge 
directly using the billions of connected mobile devices.

Several features enable the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing to be a 
perfect paradigm to the aforementioned purpose, which are the dense 
geographical deployment of servers, supporting mobility and the 
closeness to users. As in every new technology, some challenges face the 
vision of the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing, which are the 
administrative policies and security concerns (i.e. secure data storage, 
secure computation, network security, data privacy, usage privacy, 
location privacy, etc).
FMEC2018 conference aims to investigate the opportunities and 
requirements for Mobile Edge Computing dominance. In addition, it seeks 
for novel contributions that help mitigating Mobile Edge Computing 
challenges. That is, the objective of FMEC2018 is to provide a forum for 
scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange new 
ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of Fog and Mobile 
Edge Computing (FMEC). Researchers are encouraged to submit original 
research contributions in all major areas, which include, but not 
limited to:

* Mobile Cloud Computing Systems.

_*Important Dates:*_
Submission Date:
10 January 2018
Notification to Authors: 15 February 2018
Camera Ready Submission: 5March 2018
_*Submissions Guidelines and Proceedings:*_
Manuscripts should be prepared in 8 pages 10-point font using the IEEE 
8.5" x 11" two-column format. All papers should be in PDF format, and 
submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full paper must not 
exceed (including all figures, tables and references). Submitted papers 
must present original unpublished research that is not currently under 
review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these 
guidelines may be rejected without review. Also submissions received 
after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately 
structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the Program 
Chair for further information or clarification.

All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted 
papers will appear in the FMEC Proceedings, and be published by the IEEE 
Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and be submitted to IEEE 
Xplore for inclusion.

Submitted papers must include original work, and must not be under 
consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of regular 
papers must not exceed 8 pages and must follow the IEEE paper format. 
Please include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and 
fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted 
papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted 
papers that are deemed of good quality but that could not be accepted as 
regular papers will be accepted as short papers. Length of short papers

*Journal Special Issues:*
Selected papers from the will be invited to submit an extended version 
to the following journal. Papers will be selected based on their 
reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the Journal’s theme.
