Call for Contributions
Fog computing is the extension of cloud computing into its edge and
the physical world to meet the data volume and decision velocity
requirements in many emerging applications, such as augmented and
virtual realities (AR/VR), cyber-physical systems (CPS), intelligent
and autonomous systems, and mission-critical systems. The boundary
between centralized, powerful computing cloud and massively
distributed, Internet connected sensors, actuators, and things is
blurred in this new computing paradigm.

The ICFC 2019 technical program will feature tutorials, workshops, and
research paper sessions. We solicit high-quality contributions in the
above categories. Details of submission is available on the conference
Web site. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* System architecture for fog computing
* Coordination between cloud, fog, and sensing/actuation endpoints
* Connectivity, storage, and computation in the edge
* Data processing and management for fog computing
* Efficient and embedded AI in the fog
* System and network manageability
* Middleware and coordination platforms
* Power, energy, and resource management
* Device and hardware support for fog computing
* Programming models, abstractions, and software engineering for fog computing
* Security, privacy, and ethics issues related to fog computing
* Theoretical foundations and formal methods for fog computing systems
* Applications and experiences
