Call For Papers

The First International Workshop on Edge and Fog Systems for 5G & Beyond (IWEF) will be held in Barcelona, Spain on April 15, 2018 in conjunction with IEEE WCNC 2018.

This workshop seeks original papers that address any of the abovementioned aspects. Technical papers should describe original research that is unpublished and not under review by any other conference/journal. Research topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following topics:

5G-EFS/MEC architecture and system framework
5G-EFS/MEC use cases, deployment scenarios, and requirements
5G-EFS/MEC experiments, testbeds and demonstrations
Business models involving all stakeholders of the 5G-EFS/MEC value chain
Cloud federation in 5G-EFS/MEC
Integration and interaction between EFS/MEC and central clouds
EFS/MEC applications and service provisioning
EFS/MEC function provisioning
Orchestration and control algorithms for EFS/MEC functions
Resource management and allocations for EFS/MEC
Network function virtualization (NFV) at EFS/MEC
Network slicing and multi-tenancy of EFS/MEC
EFS/SDN/NFV integration
Virtualization of radio access network functions in EFS/MEC
Multi-RAT convergence and network offloading
Software defined networking (SDN) for EFS/MEC
Switching designs to support 5G-EFS/MEC architectures
QoS and traffic engineering in EFS/MEC
Service mobility under the EFS/MEC framework
Security and privacy issues in EFS/MEC
Authentication, authorization and billing issues in EFS/MEC
Performance analysis and evaluation of EFS/MEC system

Submitted papers must be tailored to the problems of Edge and Fog Systems. Only originally unpublished contributions and invited articles will be considered for the workshop. Papers should be formatted according to the IEEE WCNC 2018 guidelines. Authors should submit a PDF version of their complete paper via EDAS.
