IEEE EdgeCom2019

- The 5th IEEE International Conference on Edge Computing and Scalable Cloud -

June 21–23, 2019
Paris, France



With edge devices (e.g. mobile phones, wearable devices, and IoT devices) are universally used and become more powerful, edge computing has evolved to a new computing paradigm where computing tasks are completed closer to data sources (i.e.  at edge) rather than in a centralized location (e.g. in cloud). Compared with cloud computing, edge computing has many advantages: 1) Services can be done without network access. 2) Users can choose not to upload private data in exchange of cloud services. 3) Real-time service with extremely low latency is possible without the overhead of moving data to the cloud. However, the restricted resources (e.g., computation, DRAM space, and battery) of edge devices bring many new challenges to edge computing as well.   IEEE Edgecom 2019 provides a forum for researchers and engineers from academia and industry to present innovative research and best practices in edge computing, discuss the opportunities and challenges that arise from rethinking cloud computing architectures and embracing edge computing. 


IEEE Edgecom 2019 welcomes contributions from diverse perspectives of edge computing, which include (but are not limited to) the following topics:

- Edge computing in IoT
