20TH IEEE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON A WORLD OF WIRELESS, MOBILE AND MULTIMEDIA NETWORKS (IEEE WOWMOM 2019) Workshop on: Edge Computing and Caching in Communication Networks (E3CN) JUNE 9-12, 2019 - WASHINGTON DC, UNITED STATES Scope of the Workshop Edge Computing is among the most active research fields today and is an essential technology in the next-generation communication systems. Edge computing deploys cloud functions in edge nodes such as base stations, access points, routers and smart phones, which is a promising expectation to provide low latency, low cost, proximity and high bandwidth network service. However, transforming this expectation into reality requires significant research efforts. This workshop will be devoted to the presentation of pioneering works targeting edge computing in communication networks. Additionally, the increasing demand for massive multimedia services in cellular networks poses great challenges on network capacity and backhaul links. Topics Topics of interest may include, but are not limited to the following: ? Trends and challenges of integrating edge computing and caching ? Edge computing enabled network architectures ? Edge computing and caching models in communication networks ? Edge computing for smart cities and industry ? Edge computing for IoT ? Edge computing for vehicular networks ? Machine learning/AI for edge computing ? Networking/resource management for edge computing and caching ? Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) in future networksions ? D2D content caching and delivery for communication networks ? Content caching and optimization in future networks ? Performance evaluation/optimization/improvement of edge computings ? Reliability and availability, mobility and connectivity of edge computing and caching ? Performance/complexity/cost tradeoff ? Computation/traffic offloading in communication networks ? Hardware, software, networks and services design for edge computing and cachin ? QoS provisionings for edge computing and caching ? Big data for edge computing and caching ? Information theory for edge computing and caching ? Standards, policies, and regulations for edge computing and caching ? Security and privacy for edge computing and caching Steering Committee Xiaoming Fu University of Goettingen, Germany Pan Hui Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, China Yan Zhan University of Oslo, Norway Workshop Co-Chairs Xujie Li Hohai University, China Sokol Kosta Aalborg University, Denmark Yanli Xu Shanghai Maritime University, China Technical Program Committee: Mayutan Arumaithurai University of Goettingen, Germany Tingting Hu University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg Yunfei Chen University of Warwick, UK Ping Wu Uppsalauniversity, Sweden Xiangyu Uppsalauniversity, Sweden Fei Shen Chinese Academy of Sciences, China Wenfeng Li Nanjing University, China Feng Yan Southeast University, China Xiaorong Zhu Nanjing University of Posts and Telecoms, China Siyuan Zhou Hohai University, China Geng Chen Shandong University of Sci. and Tech., China Weiwei Xia Southeast University, China Zhengquan Li Jiangnan University, China SUBMISSION DEADLINES: Submission deadline: March 11, 2019 Acceptance Notification: April 15 Final Paper submission: April 29, 2019 Submission link: https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=25806
