EoT Workshop 2020

EoT Workshop 2020

jointly held with PICom 2020 (August 17-21 2020, Calgary, Canada)


The Edge of Things (EoT) has arisen as the seamless integration among the Cloud, Fog and Edge Computing. Such promising synergy is still in its embryonic stage but has the ambition to unleash the full Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem potential. Now in its second edition, this Workshop aims at investigating the several topics under the EoT umbrella and welcomes paper submissions providing innovative research as well as technical contributions aimed to foster the creation of a new value chain and an energized IoT ecosystem spanning from the network core to the edge.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Modelling, Design, Implementation and Simulation of EoT Systems
  • Intelligent, Energy-aware and mobility-aware solutions for EoT
  • Standards and Interoperability in EoT systems
  • EoT Protocols
  • Edge-oriented Networking Architectures
  • EoT Middleware
  • Big EoT Data
  • Edge-enabled Social Networking and Applications
  • Security, privacy and blockchain in EoT
  • Edge-based IoT Applications and Services in Impact Application Domains (Smart City, Smart Healthcare, Smart Grid, etc.)


  • Regular Paper Submission Due (Extended): May 10, 2020
