Human beings have been cooperating, competing, and entertaining ourselves by providing and consuming all kinds of services. We build, deploy, publish, and discover services, and with the current prevailing technology, we use clouds that are formed of computers and servers connected by the Internet, and developed using wire-based and wireless technology. Many enterprises and large organizations have begun to adopt small and mobile devices, sensors and actuators that provide data and services to users or other devices, and those devices will become more intelligent as technology progresses. We must deal with huge amount of data, big data that must be transferred from/to distant, sometimes very distant sources, stored and processed by data and compute clouds. As direct service links between clouds may not enable fast enough data access, reliability could be jeopardized, availability cannot be completely guaranteed, and the entire system is subject to security attacks, there is a need for significant future improvements. Due to the sizes of enterprises and large organizations, some smaller clouds, that could be stationary as well as mobile, are being proposed to improve these metrics. This is where the concept of Edge Computing, together with the necessary and possible intelligent management and control at the edge, comes to play. 

“Edge Computing” is a process of building a distributed system in which some applications, as well as computation and storage services, are provided and managed by (i) central clouds and smart devices, the edge of networks in small proximity to mobile devices, sensors, and end users; and (ii) others are provided and managed by the center cloud and a set of small in-between local clouds supporting IoT at the edge. This dual architecture allows for Edge Computing. Edge Computing is practically a cloud-based middle layer between the center cloud and the edges, hardware and software that provide specialized services. The problem is how to execute such a process, how to manage the whole system, how to define and create Fogs and Edges, provide workflow, and how to provide Edge Computing (compute, storage, networking) services. Many open problems still exist, as they are not even properly specified, as the Edge Computing itself is not fully yet defined.

International Conference on Edge Computing (EDGE) aims to become a prime international forum for both researchers and industry practitioners to exchange the latest fundamental advances in the state of the art and practice of Edge computing, identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Edge computing. EDGE covers the localized resource sharing and connections with the cloud.

Topics of the EDGE 2018, goal of the conference, and unique features that other conferences do not have. 

The major topics of the conference are as follows:
- Architecture of Edge Computing systems
- Public and Private Mobile Clouds in Edge Computing
- Software of Edge Computing
- Hybrid clouds in Edge Computing
- Programming the Edge Computing
- Functionality of Edge Computing systems
- Communication among Edges of an Edge Computing system
- Communication between Edges and central cloud in an Edge Computing system
- Migration services in Edge Computing systems
- Workflows in Edge Computing
- Green Edge Computing
- Reliability in Edge Computing systems
- Availability in Edge Computing systems
- Security and Privacy in Edge Computing systems
- Trust in Edge Computing
- Quality of Service in Edge Computing
- Pricing and Billing in Edge Computing
- Applications of Edge Computing
- Mission critical Edge Computing

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted and presented papers from all EDGE tracks will appear in the conference proceedings.

Submitted Research Track and Application Track manuscripts will be limited to 8 (SCF Proceedings style) pages and REQUIRED to be formatted using the SCF Proceedings template(WORD, Latex). Submitted Short Paper track manuscripts will be limited to 4 (SCF Proceedings style) pages. Unformatted papers and papers beyond the page limit may not be reviewed. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF or Word format) is required. Detailed instructions for electronic paper preparation and submission, panel proposals, tutorial proposals, workshop proposals, and review process can be found at

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. One Best Paper award and one Best Student Paper award will be granted at EDGE 2018. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student.

Manuscripts submitted to the Research Track focusing on application or solution descriptions may be recommended to the Application Track or other tracks for further consideration if the session slots are available.
