Special Issue on Energy-Efficient Edge Computing


The future increase in the amount of data and workloads generated by Internet
of Things (IoT) devices and connected sensors will lead to the necessity to
move computational nodes from the cloud data centers closer to the data source,
i.e., at the edge of the cloud, for reduced latency. An edge system is composed
of any computing and networking resources along the path between data sources
and cloud data centers. Depending on the specific computing needs, edge
computing devices can use either a wireless or a wired connection to exchange
messages with the data sources. IoT devices and sensors can then exploit the
hierarchical structure of the edge and cloud system to analyze the collected
data and provide useful information to users in a timely manner. For example,
wearable sensors could use the computing resources of the user’s smartphone,
laptop, or even smart vehicle to analyze the collected data. Because a large
majority of edge devices are battery operated and have limited connectivity,
the energy efficiency of computation becomes critical. To this end, it is
important to minimize the energy consumption of all the components of an edge
system, including sensors, IoT devices, edge nodes, and network devices while
guaranteeing the desired performance. For this special issue we solicit
original experimental, conceptual, and theoretical contributions on the
following topics related to energy-efficient edge computing:

- energy-aware application placement and offloading
- energy-aware resource management
- energy-aware data management
- energy-aware edge2cloud coordination
- energy-aware sensing for edge computing systems
- energy-efficient hardware architectures for edge computing and devices
- energy-efficient edge computing for AI applications
- energy-efficient edge computing applications
- edge computing powered by distributed renewable energy resources
- energy-efficient vehicular edge computing
- energy-efficient edge computing for autonomous robots
- energy-efficient networks for edge computing
