International Workshop on Fog Computing Technologies and Applications
会议地点: Guangzhou, China
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers conducting studies on fog computing technologies and exploring their applications. Fog computing emerges as an alternative for cloud computing to reduce the burden of data centers in traditional cloud architecture. Due to its promising features like low latency, geographical distribution and decentralized data analytic, heterogeneity and interoperability, fog computing attracts growing attentions in both academic and industrial communities and is being considered with great potential in geographically distributed, latency sensitive, and QoS-aware Internet of Things (IoT) applications like industrial IoT, healthcare, connected vehicle, smart environments, smart city and etc. Despite the large number of application domains that fog computing is impacting, its widespread adoption is still facing technical challenges from architecture, communication protocols, naming, identification and resolution, control and management, security and privacy protection among other implementation challenges in terms of programming platform, energy management etc.
