IoT is the new revolution in the Internet in which objects, machines, humans, sensors, and the like are connected through the Internet technology. IoT has enabled the development of a vast number of applications (e-health, industry 4.0, smart-city, intelligent transportation system, etc). Nevertheless, IoT has created arduous challenges. In the legacy network, data are gathered and processed using cloud computing technology. However, the latency along with the power consumption and bandwidth scarcity has enabled the development of the Edge and Fog computing. Edge / Fog computing is a paradigm shift in which data are processed at the edge of the network. Edge/Fog computing not only brings benefits of Cloud computing but also supports unfit features for improving quality of services such as network bandwidth saving, latency reducing and energy efficiency. This special session is intended to discuss recent work in fog and edge computing.  We are soliciting paper for following topics:

  • Edge/ Fog computing architecture for IoT
  • Application of Edge/ Fog computing
  • Computational offloading to Fog layer
  • Mobile Edge computing for IoT systems
  • Data processing and data fusion in Edge/Fog computing
  • Edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Fog computing
  • Edge/Fog-based body sensor networks
  • Scalable/parallel/distributed lightweight algorithms in Edge/Fog computing and IoT
  • Reprogrammable and reconfigurable embedded hardware for Edge/Fog computing and IoT
  • Edge/Fog computing for resource allocation
  • Fault tolerance, reliability and scalability methods in Edge/Fog computing and IoT
  • Security in Edge/Fog computing and IoT
  • Advanced Fog services for mobility support and data synchronization
  • Big data analysis in Fog computing
