When Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) become interconnected with each other and with the internet, they form the Internet of Things (IoT), forming “the infrastructure of the information society.” Fog Computing is a “system-level architecture that distributes resources and services of computing, storage, control and networking anywhere along the continuum from Cloud to Things” and is about to tremendously impact the IoT. The objective of this special session is to be a forum for presenting and discussing recent developments and trends in Fog/Edge Computing that represent challenges and opportunities for CPS and IoT researchers and practitioners.

Topics under this session include (but not limited to)

  • Fog Computing Architectures and Frameworks
  • Virtualization and Hypervisors for Fog Computing
  • Middleware for Fog Computing
  • Real-Time and Schedulability Aspects of Fog Computing
  • Formal Methods for Fog Computing Systems
  • Multi-tiered, Novel Resource Management Solutions Involving the Edge/Fog/Cloud
  • Data Centers and Infrastructures for Fog Computing
  • Programming Models and Runtime Systems for Fog Computing
  • Control-as-a-service and Virtualization of Control, Guaranteeing Quality-of-Control
  • Fog Computing Modeling, Analysis, and Performance Evaluation
  • Data Analytics and AI/ML at the Edge
  • Resource-Efficient On-Device Machine Learning
  • Use Cases for / and Applications of Fog Computing
