EdgeCom: 1st Workshop on Edge Computing

9-12 January, 2016

Las Vegas, USA

In conjunction with the 13th Annual IEEE Consumer Communications & Networking Conference (CCNC 2016)
and with the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2016)

Co-sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society Internet of things
Emerging Technical Committee

Scope and overview

The evolution of ICT has led to the diffusion of wireless personal devices, such as smart mobile
phones, personal computers and wearable devices, designed to operate over the Internet. This,
together with the exponential growth of the number of interconnected devices is leading towards
the commonly called Internet of Things (IoT).
Such increasing pervasiveness of sensing and computing, with the consequent generation of massive
amount of data, is calling for scalable and efficient decentralized approaches to data storage and
elaboration, relieving centralized infrastructure at the core from part of the computational and
communication burden, and pushing data analytics and knowledge generation towards the edge of
the network, closer to the user. Such approach, called also "Edge Computing", leverages the
computational capabilities of virtually any networked device, including resources such as laptops,
smartphones, tablets and sensors, which may not be continuously connected to a network. Indeed,
the sensing and computing capabilities of interconnected devices have reached very high levels.
Today's mobile devices, for instance, are computationally equivalent to laptops from only a few years
ago, while combining excellent battery life, storage capacity, networking, and a multitude of internal
and external sensors in a single platform.
The main objectives of the workshop include:
*To review the state-of-art of research in Edge Computing;
*To identify areas of critical needs where further research can advance the state of the art;
*To individuate and address the main performance issues;
*To individuate applications and use cases which could provide the motivation for further scientific developments;
*To create a forum for discussion;
*To provide insights for future research directions and potential new research initiatives in
these areas.

In the spirit of CCNC, this workshop aims at favoring a multidisciplinary, cross layer
perspective to Edge Computing, bringing together researchers, developers, and practitioners
from academia and industry.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

Architectures and Middleware for Edge Computing
Local Cloud/Fog computing
Grid/Mesh Computing,
Distributed data storage and retrieval
Autonomic self-healing networks
Virtual cloudlets
Remote cloud services
Augmented reality
Performance issues
Energy efficiency aspects in Edge Computing
Architectures and Middleware for Edge Computing
Local Cloud/Fog computing
Grid/Mesh Computing
