[DMANET] Special Issue: "Recent Advances in Fog/Edge Computing in Internet of Things" (MDPI Sensors)

Special Issue: "Recent Advances in Fog/Edge Computing in Internet of Things"

MDPI Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220), section "Internet of Things"

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2019

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid growth of mobile applications and the Internet of Things have
placed severe demands on cloud infrastructure, which has led to moving
computing and data services towards the edge of the cloud, inside the
so-called "edge computing". There are multiple instantiations of this
concept, such as "fog computing" and "multi-access edge computing".

There are several open challenges in various topics related to the
interactions between "edge computing" and the Internet of Things.
Therefore, this Special Issue solicits papers that cover numerous topics of
interest that include, but are not limited to:

- Integrated communication and computing design for fog/edge
computing-based IoT
- Theoretical foundation and models for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Intelligent (real time) data analytics for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Security and privacy in fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Machine learning for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Communication and network architecture and protocols for fog/edge
computing-based IoT
- Data management, decision support and novel services in fog/edge
computing-based IoT
- Integrated testbed and case studies for fog/edge computing-based IoT
