IEEE International Symposium on Edge Computing and Blockchain
会议地点: Atlanta, USA
The 2019 The 4th IEEE International Symposium on Edge Computing and Blockchain (EdgeBlock 2019) will be held in Atlanta, USA. EdgeBlock 2019 is an international forum with emerging research focuses for researchers to present their latest researches and perspectives for future work in the field of blockchain and edge computing.
With thrive development of internet of things (IoT), we are in a new networked systems era. The total amount of data is unprecedently high and most of them are generated at the edge of the network due to the increase quantity of the embedded devices. By the method of edge computing, the computation is mainly performed on distributed device nodes which are closer to the physical data collection sources. It provides a high efficiency and security computational paradigm, which can tackle the challenges in reliability, security, and timeliness considerations in new social, environmental, industrial applications due to the advanced network resource management. Applying edge computing in the field of internet of things (IoT), physical computing and smart cities, has been attracting much attention in recent years.
Blockchain is another concentration of the EdgeBlock 2019. Since the invention of Bitcoin in 2008, blockchain has drawn attention all over the world by its application in digital currency. Blockchain has promising characteristics of decentralized, cryptographically secured and immutable. It is commonly used in the field of internet of things, social networking, cyber security and internet banking. The emergence and applications of blockchain have significantly changed the way of data access and storage. The event also encourages scholars to submit their work in merging these two technical dimensions and explore potential solutions to enhancing the network performance and strengthening security. EdgeBlock 2019 is the next edition of a series of academic events following EdgeBlock 2018 (Tokyo, Japan), SmartFog 2017 (New York, USA), and SmartFog 2016 (New York, USA).
Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
Model, framework, and mechanism in designing blockchain-enabled edge
