Dear colleagues, the deadline of the CFP of this workshop has been 
extended till May 24th!

Third F2C-DP Workshop

3rd Workshop on Fog-to-Cloud Distributed Processing
(endorsed by the mF2C project, https://www.mf2c-project.eu)
Co-located with Euro-Par 2019
Göttingen, Germany, August 26-27, 2019
Future service execution in different domains (e.g. smart cities, 
e-health, smart transportation, smart energy, 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, including all security and privacy aspects. 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, 
taking care of Security and Privacy aspects. The workshop aims at 
opening new avenues for research in a very innovative and challenging 
scenario, and bring together the community of researchers interested in 
new programming paradigms, specially tailored to combined fog and cloud 
computing scenarios.

As a workshop series, this second 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.

Submission guidelines
Only contributions that are not submitted elsewhere or currently under 
review will be considered. The papers have to be formatted according to 
the LNCS guidelines. They should be between minimum 10 and maximum 12 
pages. All papers will have to be positively reviewed by at least 3 
referees before being presented at the workshop. Only the papers 
presented at the workshop will be published by Springer in a separate 
LNCS workshop volume after the conference. It is important to mention 
also that only one workshop organizer will be co-editor of the Springer 
volume of proceedings. Please remember that all workshop attendees, 
including organizers and invited speakers, should explicitly register as 
regular participants. The registration fee of selected participants may 
be waived as a contribution
of the conference organizers. 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.
