*The Seventh ACM/IEEE Symposium on Edge Computing*
Seattle, WA, December 2022



*Submitting a Paper*

SEC takes a broad view of edge computing and solicits contributions from
many fields of systems practice that embrace any aspect of edge computing.
Topics include, but are not limited to:

   - algorithms and techniques for machine learning and AI at the edge
   - cellular infrastructure for edge computing
   - distributed ledger technology (DLT) & blockchain at the edge
   - edge computing as an enabler of 5G applications and services
   - edge computing infrastructure and edge-enabled applications
   - geo-distributed analytics and indexing on edge nodes
   - hardware architectures for edge computing and devices
   - IoT hubs
   - innovative applications at the edge
   - monitoring, management, and diagnosis in edge computing
   - networking, e.g., from clients to the edge, and from the edge to the
   - programming models and toolkits
   - resource management and reliability for edge computing
   - security and privacy issues
   - vehicular, enterprise, and manufacturing systems

The review process will be double-blind. Papers will be judged on novelty,
significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. A best paper award will
be presented to one or more outstanding papers from the conference.

We also welcome short Position Papers on any of the above topics, which
will be judged separately from papers in the research track of the

By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will
attend the conference to present it.

Papers must be in PDF format and must be submitted through
No email submissions will be accepted.

*Two Deadlines and Reviewing Process with One-shot Revision*

SEC?22 offers authors the options of two deadlines and adds a one-shot
revision process to enhance the timeliness and quality of the scientific
results from the research community. Each paper will go through the same
rigorous reviewing process as in previous SEC conferences. The review
decisions will be one of the following:

Accept: Papers in this category will be accepted for publication in the
proceedings and presentation at the conference, possibly after making minor
changes with the oversight of a shepherd.

One-Shot-Revision: A limited number of papers will be invited to submit a
revision; such papers will receive a specific set of action points and can
be resubmitted for the next deadline. After the resubmission, reviewers
will evaluate the paper based on whether the authors have properly
addressed the previous reviews. Unlike in the shepherding process, the
requested action points may include running additional experiments that
obtain specific results. During this revision period, the paper is still
considered under review to SEC and therefore cannot be submitted to other
conferences unless the authors first withdraw it from consideration. The
revised paper will then be re-evaluated, and either accepted or rejected.

Reject: Papers in this category are declined for inclusion in the
conference. Rejected papers must wait for one year, from the date of
original submission, to resubmit to SEC. A paper will be judged to be a
resubmit (as opposed to a new submission) if the paper is from the same or
similar authors, and a reviewer could write a substantially similar summary
of the paper compared with the original submission. As a rule of thumb, if
there is more than 40% overlap between the original submission and the new
paper, it will be considered a resubmission.

In case of any similarity between a current submission and a submission
that has been previously rejected at SEC less than 11 months ago, please
email a detailed list of differences and if possible a copy of a previous
submission to the chairs.

*Important Dates*

*Deadline 2

Abstract and title registration:* June 12, 2022, 11:59 p.m. EDT (firm)*

Paper submission:* June 19, 2022, 11:59 p.m. EDT (firm)*

Early rejection notifications: *July 30, 2022*

Rebuttal period: *August 15-17, 2022*

Notification of acceptance: *September 2, 2022*

Camera ready: *October 14, 2022*

*Submission Instructions*

Submitted papers must be no longer than 12 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages,
including figures and tables, but excluding references, and using 10-point
type on 11-point (single-spaced) leading, two-column format, Times Roman,
or a similar font, within a text block 6.5" wide x 9" deep. IEEE Standard
template for Latex and Word meet these specifications and can be found at:
Accepted papers will be allowed two additional pages in the proceedings.
Papers not meeting these criteria will be rejected without review, and no
deadline extensions will be granted for reformatting. Pages should be
numbered, and figures and tables should be legible in black and white,
without requiring magnification. Papers so short as to be considered
"extended abstracts" will not receive full consideration.

Reviewing will be double-blind. Authors must make a good faith effort to
anonymize their submissions, and they should not identify themselves either
explicitly or by implication; for example, cite prior work as though it
belongs to a third party. Submissions violating the detailed formatting and
anonymization rules will not be considered for review. If you are uncertain
about how to anonymize your submission, please contact the program
co-chairs well in advance of the submission deadline.

Papers must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the Web submission
form, which will be open in the weeks before the submission deadline.
Papers will receive some reviews, after which papers will either proceed to
a second round of reviewing or be immediately rejected. Papers that are
reviewed in the second round will then have their reviews made available so
that authors may provide brief responses. The dates for the early rejection
and rebuttal periods are in the table.

*Position Papers*

The program committee is also soliciting industry and academic position
papers that describe current advances and challenges in edge computing
practice and academic research. Such papers should follow the above
submission instructions, with the exception that they may be no longer than
6 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages. Furthermore, the title of the paper
should include the words: "Position Paper: XXX", where XXX is the actual
title of the paper.
