Call For Papers

Cloud computing provides a large range of services and virtually unlimited available resources. New applications, such as virtual reality and smart building control, have emerged due to the large number of resources and services brought by cloud computing. However, delay-sensitive applications face the problem of large latency, especially when several smart devices and objects, such as smart cities or the Internet of Things, are getting involved in human life. Therefore, cloud computing cannot meet the requirements of low latency, location awareness, and mobility support.

To solve this problem, researchers have introduced a trusted and dependable solution through the Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC) to put the services and resources of the cloud closer to users, which facilitates the leveraging of available services and resources in the edge networks. By this, we are moving closer to the users from the core (cloud data centres) to the network's edge. FMEC's dependability is based on providing user-centric service. Fog and Mobile Edge Computing aims to run heavy real-time applications at the network edge directly using the billions of connected mobile devices.

Several features enable the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing to be a perfect paradigm to the aforementioned purpose, which are the dense geographical deployment of servers, supporting mobility and the closeness to users. As in every new technology, some challenges face the vision of the Fog and Mobile Edge Computing: administrative policies and security concerns (i.e., secure data storage, secure computation, network security, data privacy, usage privacy, location privacy, etc).

FMEC 2024 conference aims to investigate the opportunities and requirements for Mobile Edge Computing dominance. In addition, it seeks novel contributions that help mitigating Mobile Edge Computing challenges. That is, the objective of FMEC 2024 is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange new ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC). Researchers are encouraged to submit original research contributions in all major areas, which include, but are not limited to the following topics:

AI in Autonomous Urbanism
Fog and Mobile Edge Computing in unmanned aerial vehicle communications and applications

Co-Located Events

Apart from the main track, there will be a Doctoral Symposium and one or more Workshops. Additionally, the conference will be co-located with the 11th International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security (IOTSMS 2024). More information about these and additional events will be published on our website as they are available. Please check out


Submission Guidelines and Proceedings

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format. All papers should be in PDF format and submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link. A full paper can be up to 8 pages (including all figures, tables and references). Submitted papers must present original, unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Also, submissions received after the due date, exceeding the length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification. All submissions are peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will appear in the FMEC Proceeding, and be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Submitted papers must include original work and must not be under consideration for another conference or journal. Submission of regular papers up to 8 pages and must follow the IEEE paper format. Please include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail addresses, and fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted papers that are deemed of good quality but that could not be accepted as regular papers will be accepted as short papers. The length of a short paper can be between 4 and 6 pages.


Submission System


Journal Special Issues

Selected papers from the will be invited to submit an extended version to the following journal. Papers will be selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the Journal’s theme. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must represent original, unpublished research work. Further details will be made available at a later stage.
