Workshop Synopsis:

Given the growing demand for real-time gathering and processing of vast
amount of data from data-intensive services such as autonomous driving
and augmented reality (AR), we are witnessing a visible trend to push
computing and data analytics closer to the edge of networks for benefits
in low latency, reliability, throughput, security and privacy. Supported
by lightweight virtualization technologies such as Docker Containers and
Unikernels, the decentralized edge computing paradigm aims to offer
efficient access to various geographically distributed computing
resources. In this context, the EdgeSys workshop focuses on the
confluence of edge computing, decentralized communication and
distributed computing. For example, there are several industry-led edge
computing and orchestration platforms such as KubeEdge, Firecracker, and
Azure Sphere. In the decentralized communication space, systems such as
Mastodon and Matrix have been developed. There are also lots of academic
research activities on mobile data and computation offloading (e.g.,
Cloudlet, Talket, ThinkAir, MAUI, and MADNet) and systems that combine
decentralization and computation/storage offloading together, such as
IPFS. In addition, as data analytics and machine learning are
increasingly offered as a service, the next phase of evolution is to
extend the offerings beyond basic algorithms and push the analytics
closer to the edge where the data from users and devices is first
captured. In this regard, edge computing has the potential to enable a
new class of real-time data analytics platforms and services. We expect
such edge-driven data analytics will emerge and reshape the existing
cloud-based data processing pipelines. The knowledge from this new edge
pipeline can further power future cyber-physical and network services,
such as cognitive assistance and proactive accident prevention for
autonomous driving.

The 4th International Workshop on Edge Systems, Analytics and Networking
(EdgeSys'21), in conjunction with ACM EuroSys 2021, aims to bring
together system researchers, data scientists, engineers and
practitioners to identify open directions and discuss the latest
research ideas and results on edge systems, analytics and networking,
especially those related to novel and emerging technologies and use
cases. The EdgeSys'21 workshop focuses on systems, analytics and
networking aspects, covering system architecture, distributed ML
algorithms, decentralized networking, distributed consensus and ledger
techniques, edge services and data analysis.

Over the past three years, EdgeSys has been gathering substantial
community contributions in edge computing domain - especially with high
quality TPC, keynotes, panel and technical papers from US, Europe, and
Asia, including Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft Research, Intel,
IBM, Nokia, Samsung, Toyota, Telefonica, MIT, Berkeley, Columbia, Yale,
UCLA, Cambridge, Imperial, EPFL, TU Delft, MPI, TUM, Tsinghua, Peking
