Edge Computing is an new computing paradigm where server resources, ranging
from a credit-card size computer to a small data center, are placed closer
to data and information generation sources. Application and systems
developers use these resources to enable a new class of latency and
bandwidth sensitive applications that are not realizable with current cloud
computing architectures.  Edge computing represents a counterpoint to the
consolidation of computing into massive data centers, which has dominated
the discourse in cloud computing for well over a decade.  Popular terms
such as micro-data centers, intelligent edges, cloudlets, and fog have been
used interchangeably to describe edge computing.

The Third ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing (SEC) seeks to present
exciting, innovative research related to the design, implementation,
analysis, evaluation, and deployment of computer systems and applications
at the network edge.  SEC is a forum for top researchers, engineers,
students, entrepreneurs, and government officials come together under one
roof to discuss the opportunities and challenges that arise from rethinking
cloud computing architectures and embracing edge computing.  SEC takes a
broad view of edge computing and solicits contributions from many fields of
systems practice that embrace any

aspect of edge computing.  Topics include, but are not limited to:

- edge computing infrastructure and edge-enabled applications

- cellular infrastructure for edge computing

- edge computing as an enabler of 5G applications and services

- networking, e.g., from clients to the edge, and from the edge to the

- IoT hubs

- algorithms and techniques for machine learning and AI at the edge

- geo-distributed analytics and indexing on edge nodes

- hardware architectures for edge computing and devices

- monitoring, management, and diagnosis in edge computing

- resource management and reliability for edge computing

- security and privacy issues

- vehicular, enterprise, and manufacturing systems

- programming models and toolkits
*Submitting a Paper*

The review process will be *double-blind*.  Papers will be judged on
novelty, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. A best paper
award will be presented to one or more outstanding papers from the

We also welcome short Industry *Position Papers* on any of the above
topics, which will be judged separately from papers in the research track
of the conference.

By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will
attend the conference to present it.

*Deadline and Submission Instructions*

Authors are required to submit full papers by 6:00 p.m. EDT on May 17,
2018. This is a hard deadlines, and no extensions will be given. Submitted
papers must be no longer than 12 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages, including
figures and tables, plus as many pages as needed for references, using
10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading, two-column format, Times
Roman or a similar font, within a text block 6.5" wide x 9" deep. Accepted
papers will be allowed 2 additional pages in the proceedings. Papers not
meeting these criteria will be rejected without review, and no deadline
extensions will be granted for reformatting. Pages should be numbered, and
figures and tables should be legible in black and white, without requiring
magnification. Papers so short as to be considered "extended abstracts"
will not receive full consideration.

Reviewing will be double-blind. Authors must make a good faith effort to
anonymize their submissions, and they should not identify themselves either
explicitly or by implication (e.g., through the references or
acknowledgments). Submissions violating the detailed formatting and
anonymization rules will not be considered for review. If you are uncertain
about how to anonymize your submission, please contact the program
co-chairs well in advance of the submission deadline.

Papers must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the Web submission
form, which will be available in the weeks before the submission deadline.

*Industry Position Papers*

New for this year’s conference, the program committee is also soliciting
industry position papers that describe current advances and challenges in
edge computing practice.  Such papers should follow the above submission
instructions, with the exception that they may be no longer than 6 single
spaced 8.5" x 11" pages, including figures and tables, plus as many pages
as needed for references, using 10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced)
leading, two-column format, Times Roman or a similar font, within a text
block 6.5" wide x 9" deep. Furthermore, the title of the paper should
include the words: “Position Paper: XXX”,  where XXX is the actual title of
the paper.
