Workshop – 3rd EIMC

Call for Workshop Papers

3rd Workshop on Edge Intelligence and Mobile Computing for 5G and Beyond Communications and Applications

16-17 November, join with EAI IoTaaS 2022 remotely in Guangzhou, China

Online Participation for Workshop


Nowadays, billions of IoT devices, e.g., sensors and RFIDs, arise around us providing not only computing-intensive but also delay-sensitive services, ranging from augmented/virtual realities to distributed data analysis and artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, in many application scenarios, the low response latency for IoT services is achieved at the cost of computing complexity that far exceeds the capabilities of IoT devices. To feed this trend, multiple computing paradigms emerge, such as mobile transparent computing, edge computing, fog computing, and big data analytics-based framework. These paradigms employ more resourceful edge devices, e.g., small-scale servers, smartphones, and laptops, to assist the low-end IoT devices. By offloading the computing-intensive tasks to the edge devices, it is expected to converge the data collection at IoT devices and the data processing at edge devices to provision computing-intensive and delay-sensitive services. However, lots of issues remain in the application of edge computing which impedes its flourish in IoTs. This workshop will solicit original research and practical contributions which advance the computing offloading and edge intelligence regarding the architecture, technologies, and applications. Surveys and state-of-the-art tutorials are also considered.

Topics of Interest

Topics include, but are not limited to the following research topics:

  • Architecture design for edge computing and intelligence in IoTs
  • Data-driven energy consumption and delay model of edge computing in IoTs
  • QoS-aware computing offloading in IoTs
  • Vehicular and mobile computing in IoTs
  • Edge intelligence and computing software design in mobile IoTs
  • The management of software in edge intelligence and computing for IoTs
  • Communication protocol design for edge intelligence and computing in IoTs
  • Convergence of energy harvesting and computing offloading in IoTs
  • Security, privacy, integrity, and trust in IoT computing offloading
  • Hardware design and prototyping for edge intelligence and computing in IoTs
  • Testbeds and simulation platforms for edge intelligence and computing in IoTs
  • Big data framework and analytical optimization for edge intelligence and computing in IoTs
  • Key scenarios/applications for edge intelligence and computing in IoTs (e.g., connected vehicles)
  • Green network design and optimization for IoT
