The First International Workshop on
“Smart network Technologies and Edge computing for the Tactile Internet”

STET 2018

in conjunction with IEEE NetSoft 2018 (

25-29 June 2018 – Montreal, Canada


In the recent years, we have witnessed an increasing interest towards new
networking trends such as cloud computing, providing virtually unlimited
resources for enterprises and end users, and smart systems such as
sensors, smartphones, used to generate and elaborate data produced in
human life contexts and leading to the problem of big data processing and

Additionally, the introduction of the Software Defined Networking (SDN)
paradigm and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are deeply modifying
the Internet towards the new concept of softwarized network, where network
nodes are realized with general-purpose standard servers, and network
functions are implemented as software pieces running on servers according
to the data center and cloud computing paradigms. These technologies,
combined with the emerging standard of Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC),
will be the enablers of the forthcoming 5G mobile network for the Tactile
Internet, a framework that is likely to change every segment of the
society in the future.

Tactile Internet is foreseen to represent the next step in the Internet of
Things (IoT) paradigm thanks to its property of supporting extremely low
latency, high availability, reliability and security, so building
real-time interactive systems and physical tactile experiences remotely.
Relevant application areas for Tactile Internet include real-time gaming,
industrial automation, transportation systems, health and education.
However, technical solutions to Tactile Internet are still at their
infancy and contributions are highly required which encompass: (i) the
development of innovative architectures, algorithms, and abstractions for
more flexible, scalable and configurable provisioning and orchestration of
Tactile Internet applications; (ii) the design of novel (mobile) edge/fog
computing solutions meeting the growing local and distributed very
low-latency computing requirements, and their integration with other
technologies, like for example SDN and NFV, MEC and 5G in using the
available resources at the edge of the network; (iii) the deployment of
new smart technologies for high-performance processing, among which
solutions tackling sustainable virtualization technologies.

The STET 2018 Workshop aims at bringing together researchers, engineers,
and practitioners to present and discuss the latest advances on
architectural, theoretical and practical enablers for the realization of
the Tactile Internet vision in future 5G smart systems. Authors are
invited to submit papers that fall in the area of smart networks for
Tactile Internet and Multi-Access Edge Computing.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Resource management and orchestration for the Tactile Internet

- SDN, NFV as enabling technologies for the Tactile Internet

- Edge Computing strategies in support of the Tactile Internet

- Protocols and Architectures for the Tactile Internet

- System design and modeling for the Tactile Internet

- Small and large scale Testbed for the Tactile Internet applications

- Performance evaluation and reliability for the Tactile Internet

- Security and privacy for the Tactile Internet

- Use cases and application domains for Tactile Internet

- Prototypes and demonstrators of the Tactile Internet

- Measurement studies for the Tactile Internet

- Enabling Technologies for the Tactile Internet

- Economic impact of the Tactile Internet paradigm

- Game theory and optimization for Tactile Internet
