Topics/Call fo Papers

The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Fog Computing and Networking will provide a forum for researchers from academia and industry with interest in, and addressing issues and challenges pertaining to edge/Fog Computing and Networking, to present their latest results and work-in-progress, share and discuss new ideas and trends in the area.
About the Workshop:
This workshop is organized in collaboration with the OpenFog Consortium. Founded in November 2015 by major industry movers and leading academic institutions, the consortium aims to bring industry and academic leadership and partnership to drive Fog adoption. With active participation from both sides, OpenFog is developing a reference architecture and testbeds to demonstrate Fog technology capabilities and business values. It is partnering closely with academia to identify and solve fundamental issues and challenges that must be addressed to realize the full potential of Fog computing.
Scope of the Workshop:
Cloud computing has emerged as the most influtential paradigm in recent years for deploying IT and meeting the computing needs of enterprises and end-users. Although pushing computing, data storage and processing into the Cloud offers a myriad of benefits, this model fails to meet the requirements of emerging applications (Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) applications), cyber-physical systems and networks (Smart Home and Smart City networking, the Internet of Things (IoT)) in several aspects, including stringent response-time, real-time data analytics and system control, context-awareness, energy efficiency, and smart networking.
To fill the technical gaps that are hindering the ability to support next generation applications and systems, the Cloud is being extended to the network edge and "fogged" into end-user devices such that some of the computing, data storage and processing, communication and networking services are brought closer to the end-users where emerging applications and systems demands can be best met. This Cloud to edge continuu, a.k.a. "Fog," presents a new architecture vision where distributed edge and end-users devices collaborate with each other and with the Cloud, pooling both local and remote virtualized resources for enhanced performance and improved user experience.
Fog computing is gaining momentum as a critical enabler of the IoT for addressing relevant challenges such as the real-time processing and analytics of incoming data, and the limitation of resources in the edge like bandwidth and computing power. Along with Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), Network Function Virtulaization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Fog Computing is also driving growing interest from mobile communications community as an important ingredient for the deployment of 5G mobile devices.
While the Fog model is bringing disruptive changes to the computing and communication industries, realizing the full potential of Fog computing and networking imposes a number of challenges. For example, how to compose, deploy, and manage distributed fog services, how to achieve scalable and secure fog networking, what should be the Fog-Cloud interface, who does what, and how to enable interactions with the users and the hardware.
The workshop solicits papers that will address the above as well as related challenges. Authors are invited to submit unpublished papers that are not under review in any other conference or journal in any of, but not limited to the following topics:
Fog computing and network architectures
Fog and MEC-based radio access networks
Fog-Cloud interface, interactions and enabling protocols
Edge and Cloud resource pooling
Software-defined Fog networking and network function virtualization
Orchestration and management of resources in Fog-based environment
Fog-based data services, edge data analytics, edge caching
Security and privacy in Fog computing and networking
Fog-enabled technologies and applications, including IoT
Challenges and requirements of fog and MEC in the context of IoT and 5G
Trials and experimentation on Fog computing and networking
