The 7th IEEE International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing (ICFEC 2023)

01-04 May, 2023 Bangalore, India

in conjunction with IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2023


The 7th IEEE International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing (ICFEC
2023) is a leading forum to disseminate and discuss research
activities and results on a broad range of topics in the fields of fog
and edge computing. Fog and edge computing have received much
attention by both the research community and the industry in recent
years, and are today seen as an alternative to the utilization of
cloud-based computational resources. Especially, this is the case in
scenarios where large amounts of data are produced in distributed
settings, e.g., in the Internet of Things (IoT), where data needs to
be processed in (near) real time, or where suboptimal network
connectivity hampers the upload of very large amounts of data to the
cloud. Use cases for fog and edge computing range from smart factories
over smart grids to autonomous vehicles, to name just some examples.


The conference seeks to attract high-quality contributions covering
both theory and practice over systems research and emerging
domain-specific applications related to next-generation distributed
systems that use the edge and the fog. Some representative topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

* Data centers and infrastructures for fog/edge computing

* Mobility management in fog/edge computing

* Federated learning and distributed machine learning in the fog and on the edge

* 5G and fog/edge computing

* Middleware and runtime systems for fog/edge infrastructures

* Programming models for fog/edge computing

* Storage and data management platforms for fog/edge computing

* Scheduling and resource management for fog/edge infrastructures

* Security, privacy, trust and provenance issues in fog/edge computing

* Distributed consensus and blockchains at the edge and in the fog

* Modeling and simulation of fog/edge environments

* Performance monitoring and metering of fog/edge infrastructures

* (Big) Data processing in the fog and at the edge

* Energy-efficient fog/edge computing


Both full and short papers can be submitted. All papers must be
written in English. Manuscripts must include a title, an abstract, and
a list of 4-6 keywords. Each full paper is limited to 8 pages,
including tables, figures and references. Each short paper is limited
to 5 pages, including tables, figures and references. Each paper will
be reviewed by at least three TPC members.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings that
will be published through the IEEE Computer Society Conference
Publishing Services. All papers must be prepared in the IEEE double
column proceedings format. For details, please see
https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html. For
publication, each accepted paper is required to be registered by one
of its authors. At least one author is required to attend and present
the paper at the conference for the paper to be included in the final
technical program and the IEEE Digital Library.
