Workshop on Recent Advances for Multi-Clouds and Mobile Edge Computing (M2EC)
Two of the research projects of the Information Management Unit of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the NTUA co-organise The International Workshop on Recent Advances for Multi-Clouds and Mobile Edge Computing (M²EC 2019).
The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 33rd IEEE International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA 2019), March 27–29, 2019, in Matsue, Japan.
The research projects are:
- Melodic: Multi-cloud Execution-ware for Large Scale Optimized Data-Intensive Computing (http://melodic.cloud);
- Prestocloud: Proactive Cloud Resource Management at the Edge for Efficient Real-time Big Data Processing (http://prestocloud-project.eu).
Scope of the workshop
Growing interest in Multi-Clouds pushes the need to investigate a large number of under-explored research topics, ranging from Multi-Cloud resource provisioning, application deployments, automated configurations, federated networking, adaptations, security, and privacy. Moreover, with the growing need of real-time data analytics and critical event handling by many modern applications, such as in the Internet of Things (IoT), it is evident that the centralized compute and storage model offered by cloud computing is not suitable for such applications, due to high end-to-end latencies.
Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), on the other hand, enables a computing and storage infrastructure provisioned closely to the end-users at the edge of a cellular network. Combining MEC in Multi-Cloud infrastructures can help to combat latency challenges imposed by the cloudcentric architectures. The intent of our workshop is to bring together people from research and industry, in order to provide a discussion forum for state-of-the-art topics related to cloud, multi-cloud and mobile edge computing technology, networks and applications.
The International Workshop on Recent Advances for Multi-Clouds and Mobile Edge Computing (M²EC 2019) will include full-paper sessions as well as a poster session (with short presentations) to introduce preliminary ideas as well as work in progress. Proceedings of the workshop will be published in Springer Series "Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing".
Deadline for paper submission is November 15, 2018.
