Dear Colleagues,

While the submission to the main event has been closed, there is still a 
way to participate in the IEEE World Forum Internet of Thing. Contribute 
to our unique Special Session and let us meet in Yokohama.

Future Platforms for Edge-Cloud Continuum – Theoretical Foundations and 
Practical Considerations

Organized within the scope of IEEE World Forum Internet of Things 
(WF‐IoT 2022)

Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to bring fundamental changes to all 
sectors of society and economy. However, realization of the IoT vision 
requires data processing (stream, static, or both) in an “optimal 
location” within the edge-cloud continuum. Here, it is assumed that 
far-edge/nano-edge devices produce data and actuate; edge/fog consist of 
“heterogeneous intermediate devices”, where data can be processed, 
cloud/HPC facilities deliver “unlimited” processing capabilities, while 
all of them jointly (and supported by resources/services/data 
orchestration) constitute the edge-cloud continuum. In this context, 
future IoT platforms will have to manage processes in multi-stakeholder, 
multi-cloud, federated, large-scale IoT ecosystems.

Here, key challenges are related to the fact that such platforms 
(encompassing operating systems, up to applications), will have to 
jointly leverage continuous progress of multiple enabling technologies, 
e.g.: 5G/6G networking, privacy and security, distributed computing, 
artificial intelligence, trust management, autonomous computing, 
distributed/smart applications, data management, etc. Moreover, they 
must facilitate intelligent (autonomous) orchestration of 
physical/virtual resources and tasks, by realizing them at the “optimal 
location” within the ecosystem (e.g., closer to where data is produced). 
To achieve this, resource-aware frugal AI is needed, to facilitate 
self-awareness and decision support, across heterogeneous ecosystem. 
Finally, it is also absolutely necessary that resource management will 
consider the CO2 footprint of the ecosystem and efficiently deploy data 
and tasks and also use multi-owner, heterogeneous sources of renewable 

In this context, contributions addressing theoretical and practical 
aspects of the following topics are invited (this list is, obviously, 
not exhaustive):
•	IoT architectures for domain agnostic user-aware, self-aware, 
(semi-)autonomous edge-cloud continuum platforms, including proposals 
for novel decentralized topologies, ad-hoc resource federation, 
time-triggered behaviors
•	Foundations for next generation of higher-level (meta) operating 
systems facilitating efficient use of computing capacity across 
edge-cloud continuum
•	Resource aware AI, including frugal AI, bringing intelligence to the 
edge-cloud continuum platforms (and ecosystems)
•	Cognitive frameworks leveraging AI-techniques to improve optimization 
of infrastructure usage and services and resources orchestration
•	Efficient streaming Big Data processing within large-scale IoT ecosystems
•	Interoperability solutions for multi-user edge-cloud continuum 
platforms, capable of coping with systematically increasing complexity 
of connecting vast numbers of heterogeneous devices
•	Federated data spaces approach for improved data governance, 
sovereignty and sharing
•	Privacy, security, trust and data governance in competitive scenarios
•	CO2 footprint reduction and efficient use of green energy in 
edge-cloud continuum ecosystems
•	Practical aspects of resource orchestration within highly 
heterogeneous, large-scale edge-cloud continuum ecosystems
•	Intent-based networking and its application to IoT
•	Swarm intelligence for IoT-edge-cloud continuum
