ICFEC 2024

The 8th IEEE International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing (ICFEC 2024) is a leading forum to disseminate and discuss research activities and results on a broad range of topics in the fields of fog and edge computing. ICFEC 2024 will take place in conjunction with The 24th International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2024).

Fog and edge computing have received much attention by both the research community and the industry in recent years, and are today seen as an alternative to the utilization of cloud-based computational resources. Especially, this is the case in scenarios where large amounts of data are produced in distributed settings, e.g., in the Internet of Things (IoT), where data needs to be processed in (near) real time, or where suboptimal network connectivity hampers the upload of very large amounts of data to the cloud. Use cases for fog and edge computing range from smart factories over smart grids to autonomous vehicles, to name just some examples.

While tremendous progress has already been made in the research fields of fog and edge computing, there are still numerous challenges which need to be solved. New abstractions and extensions to current programming and storage models are necessary to allow developers to design novel applications that can benefit from massively distributed fog and edge systems. Addressing security, privacy, and trust is of paramount importance while managing the resources and context of mobile, transient and hardware-constrained resources. Fog and edge computing can also help to process very large amounts of data, both for batch processing and data streams. The integration of novel communication protocols and communication patterns with fog and edge computing also brings both new opportunities and unique challenges. Recently, the utilization of fog and edge resources in order to realize distributed machine learning in the form of federated learning has also gained much traction, since it allows to learn from local data without sharing raw data with any centralized entity.

The conference seeks to attract high-quality contributions covering both theory and practice over systems research and emerging domain-specific applications related to next-generation distributed systems that use the edge and the fog. Some representative topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


  • Data centers and infrastructures for fog/edge computing
  • Mobility management in fog/edge computing
  • Federated learning and distributed machine learning in the fog and on the edge
  • 5G and fog/edge computing
  • Middleware and runtime systems for fog/edge infrastructures
  • Programming models for fog/edge computing
  • Storage and data management platforms for fog/edge computing
  • Scheduling and resource management for fog/edge infrastructures
  • Security, privacy, trust and provenance issues in fog/edge computing
  • Distributed consensus and blockchains at the edge and in the fog
  • Modelling and simulation of fog/edge environments
  • Performance monitoring and metering of fog/edge infrastructures
  • (Big) Data processing in the fog and at the edge
  • Energy-efficient fog/edge computing
