We are approaching a fundamental shift in the computational era as the number of connected smart devices and Internet of Things (IoT) devices (e.g., smartphones, tablets, smart watches, smart glasses, smart meters, connected vehicles, etc.) are expected to exceed several billion in the next few years. Recent studies show that it is expected that the amount of data generated at the edge of the Internet by smart and IoT devices will be vast, incredibly rich, extremely valuable, and becoming the key enabler for data-rich edge systems and applications in several smart computing domains like smart homes, connected health, and smart cities. SmartEdge has taken a leading role in addressing data/systems/applications interests, challenges, and research problems of the edge.This year, SmartEdge's themes are: Intelligent Edge, and Green Edge. By integrating the advances in smart devices and edge systems with the advances in machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), the future role of smart edge systems, networks, and applications are becoming limitless and it's expected to revolutionize the future of the world within the next few years. Green Edge is a recent emerging research field arising from the confluence of edge computing and engineering to make the computing in the edge and in pervasive systems more productive and energy-efficient. Green Edge mainly focuses on architectures and algorithms to support energy-efficient edge operation, and distributed algorithms and optimizations that makes the edge a major contributor to the overall energy efficiency of the entire IoT ecosystem.
While SmartEdge'21 is inviting all submissions relevant to edge computing and networking, we are encouraging submissions that more specifically address the intelligent and green themes. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
|Paper submission deadline||December 5, 2020 - 11:59:59pm PST (Extended)|
|Notification of acceptance||January 5, 2021|
|Camera ready copy due||February 5, 2021|
|Workshop date||March 22, 2021|
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished work, not currently under review by other conferences, workshops, or journals. Full papers are limited to a maximum length of 6 pages and must adhere to IEEE format (in 10pt font, double column, US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches), including text, figures, and references. The authors can purchase one additional page for the camera-ready version. The authors must follow the IEEE Computer Society author guidelines. The IEEE conference Latex and Word templates can be found here.
All submissions must be uploaded as PDF files to the EDAS link. Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore). Each accepted workshop paper requires a full PerCom registration (no registration is available for workshops only). Any questions regarding submission issues should be directed to Tamer Nadeem (firstname.lastname@example.org).
