The 3rd Workshop on Integrating Edge Computing, Caching, and Offloading in Next Generation Networks (IECCO 2019)
in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2019
April 29 – May 2, 2019, Paris, France
Cloud computing has been widely adopted to enable convenient access to a shared pool of computing resources. Nevertheless, as the distance between the cloud and the edge device is usually large, cloud computing services may not provide guarantees to low latency applications, and transmitting a large amount of data (e.g., in big data analytics) from the device to the cloud may not be feasible or economical. To address these issues, edge (fog) computing has been proposed to deploy computing resources closer to end users. Edge computing allows edge devices to perform computation offloading to offload their computational tasks to the edge server, which executes the computational tasks on behalf of the edge devices. Another new technology called information-centric networking (ICN) has been extensively studied in recent years. In-network caching is used in ICN to reduce the duplicate content transmission in networks. ICN-based caching has been recognized as one of the promising techniques for future wireless/wired networks.
Recently, there is a phenomenal burst of research activities in integrating edge computing, caching, and offloading in next generation networks. From the perspective of applications (e.g., video), network, cache and compute are underlying resources enabling these applications. How to manage, control and optimize these resources can have significant impacts on the performance of applications.
The Workshop on "Integrating Edge Computing, Caching, and Offloading in Next Generation Networks" provides a forum that brings together industry and academia, engineers and researchers to discuss up-to-date developments in integrating edge computing, caching, and offloading in next generation networks.
