IEEE EDGE2021 December 18-20 2021, Guangzhou China,

As we approach Shannon Limit and Moore’s Law is dying, both Computer
Science and Electronic Engineers are facing the performance bottleneck.
Edge computing as the convergence of communications and computing may break
through a bottleneck. Hence, the 2021 IEEE International Conference on Edge
Computing (IEEE EDGE 2021) aims to become a prime international forum for
both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest
fundamental advances in state of the art and practice of Edge computing,
identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Edge computing
in the field of Computer Science and Electronic Engineers.

Themed “Compute First Networking”, IEEE EDGE 2021 will feature a
comprehensive high-quality technical program including track, tutorial and
demonstration. IEEE EDGE 2021 will also include an attractive industry
program aimed at practitioners, with keynotes and panels from prominent
research, industry leaders, and technological exhibits. IEEE EDGE 2021
invites original papers addressing all aspects related to edge computing
theory, technology and applications. Technical topics of interest include
but are not limited to the following:

* Compute First Networking
* Edge Computing Architecture
* Information Theory in Edge Computing
* Cognitive Radio in Edge Computing
* Signal Processing in Edge Computing
* Edge Access Networks & Systems
* Service & Software in Edge Computing
* Platform & System in Edge Computing

* Paper submission due: September 15, 2021
* Final notification to authors: October 15, 2021
* Camera ready manuscripts due: October 31, 2021

Language: English
Paper size and format: US Letter; Two-column format in the IEEE style Page
limit: Up to eight pages for peer review for regular papers; Up to three
pages for a "work in progress" paper
Abstract Length: 1500 characters for a regular paper, and 500 characters
for "work in progress" papers
Number of Keywords: between five to eight keywords for each paper
File format: Limit the size of a single PDF file to be 6MB

Note: Authors of the accepted regular papers will have available up to 10
pages for the final version of papers.

Anonymous Submissions: All conferences implement a double-blind reviewing
process. Author names and affiliations should not appear on the paper. The
authors should make a reasonable effort not to reveal their identities of
institutional affiliations in the text, figures, photos, links, or other
data that is contained in the paper. Authors' prior work should be
preferably referred to in the third person; if this is not feasible, the
references should be blinded. Submissions that violate these requirements
will be rejected without review. The list of authors cannot be changed
after the acceptance decision is made unless approved by the Program Chairs.

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.
Accepted papers with confirmed registration and committed presentation will
appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society
Press. Each conference/congress will publicly announce the winners of its
Best Paper Award, and Best Student Paper Award. The authors of selected
papers will be encouraged to submit extended and enhanced versions of their
papers to the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing (TSC) and other
suitable journals.

Submitted Regular and Workshop Papers will be limited to 8 (IEEE
Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the IEEE
Proceedings template. Submitted Work-In-Progress Papers will be limited to
3 (IEEE Proceedings style) pages. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the
page limit may not be reviewed.

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the
contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be
disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with
access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the
special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts
submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged
as well and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair
shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.

Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum
for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author,
in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an
invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to
deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of
submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program
chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements
should be made. In some cases, it may help reduce no-shows for the
Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of
the final manuscript.

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association advancing innovation
and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its
members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow
through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards,
and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice”
for engineering, computing and technology information around the globe.

With nearly 85,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society (CS) is the world’s
leading organization of computing professionals. Founded in 1946, and the
largest of the 38 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), the CS is dedicated to advancing the theory and
application of computer and information-processing technology.

Founded in 2003, IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee on Services
Computing (TCSVC) is a multidisciplinary group whose purpose is to advance
and coordinate work in the field of Services Computing carried out
throughout the IEEE in scientific, engineering, standard, literary and
educational areas. IEEE TCSVC membership details are available at
