Cloud computing is an excellent way to offload significant amounts of computation and data from both data centers and terminal devices, due to its flexibility, scalability and significant economic savings. However, not all applications may be offloaded to the cloud such as those that require real time latency and response, those geographically distributed and those that require mobility support. Smart cities, smart connected vehicles and transportation systems, smart grid, pervasive ICT infrastructures, and applications and services that fold under the umbrella of the Internet of Things offer a number of rich use cases.

This one day workshop co-located with ICC 2013, Budapest (Hungary), targets the area of new localized and interconnected versions of the cloud that moves (part of) data storage and computation toward the edge of the network, close to the physical world.

The FOG workshop is looking at the fields of networks, computation and storage, guaranteeing a global standard of quality and system integrity. The workshop welcomes contributions on architecting and orchestrating highly distributed cloud deployments, workload splitting among edge-based and cloud-based components, hierarchical partitioning of computation and data, distributed algorithms for data and computation placement, security and privacy issues in such a multi-tenant environment, network-based computing and storage.

The FOG workshop aims at bringing together researchers from Academia and Industry, to identify and discuss technical challenges, exchange novel ideas, explore enabling technologies, and report latest research efforts that cover a variety of topics including, but not limited to:

- Applications for the FOG Environment
- Security, Privacy and System Integrity in the FOG Environment
- Cloud-based Architectures for Distributed Data Integration
- Network as a Computing and Storage Platform
- Mobile Cloud Networking
- FOG Computing Economics
- Models for Performance-aware Optimizations
- Modeling and Composition of Data Services
- Scalability, Reliability and other Quality Assurance
- Service Abstraction and Virtualization
- Real-time Integration and Processing of Large-scale Sensor Data
- Internet of Things, Architecture, Sensors and Actuator Technologies
- Distributed Real-time Analytics
- Data-flow Modeling and Management in FOG
- Virtualization of Wireless Equipment
- Unified User and Machine Mobility Management
- Content and Service Distribution
- Interoperability and Inter-cooperative Protocols
- Software Defined Edge Networks


Papers should be written in English with a standard length of five (5) printed pages (10-point font) including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with extra charge if accepted). You may use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found at Alternatively you can follow the sample instructions in template.pdf at Only PDF files are accepted for paper review.
To submit a paper, please use the following link on the EDAS submission server:

Your submitted PDF file and registered EDAS account of a paper must list the same author(s), title and abstract (minor wording differences in the abstract are ok). Papers where the PDF and EDAS account do not match the author(s), title, and/or abstract will be withdrawn by the Technical Program Co-Chairs or Symposium Co-Chairs.

IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g. removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. For additional information, please contact the Technical Program Co-Chairs.
