Fog computing is the extension of cloud computing into its edge and the physical world to meet the data volume and decision velocity requirements in many emerging applications, such as augmented and virtual realities (AR/VR), cyber-physical systems (CPS), intelligent and autonomous systems, and mission-critical systems. The boundary between centralized, powerful computing cloud and massively distributed, Internet connected sensors, actuators, and things is blurred in this new computing paradigm.
The 2019 IEEE International Conference on Fog Computing (ICFC 2019), colocated with the IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E), brings together researchers and practitioners across academia, industry, and governments to exchange visions, technical challenges, and research outcomes in a single forum. ICFC takes a broad view of Fog Computing, including computation, connectivity, mobility, sensing and actuation, theories, and systems.
The conference will be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
