ECN 2019 : The 2nd Workshop on Edge Computing and Networking
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
The rigid requirement for low-latency, high-throughput data processing by advanced mobile applications in the context of Internet-of-Things (IoT) or augmented reality (AR) has pushed the de facto computing paradigm – cloud computing, to evolve to its next generation, which is coined as edge computing. In this emerging paradigm, computing and storage resources are deployed in close proximity to mobile devices, augmenting their capabilities in real time within only few-hop (or even one-hop) distance. The major benefits of edge computing include reduced latency thus enabling critical interactions in sophisticated mobile applications and shrunk traffic volume on the core network as data streaming all the way to the distant data center is no longer required. With the maturity of new communication technologies such as 5G where high-bandwidth low-latency communication becomes reality, the boundary between mobile devices and the edge infrastructure will be further blurred and edge computing will become more appealing.
The 2nd International Workshop on Edge Computing and Networking (ECN) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry who are working on novel edge computing and networking technologies as well as their integration, to exchange research ideas and identify new research challenges in this emerging field. ECN focuses on all aspects about the modeling, design, implementation, and measurement of future edge computing and network systems.

Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EasyChair as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). The manuscripts should be no longer than 6 pages. Two additional pages are permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 8 pages). Submitted papers cannot have been previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another journal or conference. The workshop Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceeds the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es).
Submitted papers will be reviewed by the workshop Program Committee and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. An accepted paper must be presented at the ICCCN 2018 venue by one of the authors registered at the full registration rate. Each workshop registration covers up to two workshop papers by an author. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the ICCCN proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.
Submission deadline: March 31, 2019
Notification of acceptance: April 28, 2019
Camera-ready due: May 10, 2019
