Information for the Special Issue

Special Issue Call for Papers:


The Edge computing is iconic of the new computing model driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) boldly evolving and gaining the power for pervasive data processing, storage, and service supply. Although the technologies the Edge computing relies on are stable and rock-solid, one of the most critical aspects is the availability of programming models, developing tools and sandbox environments in order to design, implement and test the next generation of applications. In this scenario modelling and simulating Edge based infrastructure is crucial and, currently, no generally accepted solution is remarkably available or shared among the scientific community.

This special issue is devoted to the analysis, modelling, simulation, and application in the IoT in smart-city and industry 4.0 computation at the Edge.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

· Architectures for Edge Computing systems

· Modelling of Edge Computing systems

· Public and Private Mobile Clouds in Edge Computing

· Edge Computing Applications

· Simulation of Edge-based systems

· Programming the Edge Computing

· Functionality of Edge Computing Systems

· Communication Among Edge Computing Systems

· Migration Services in Edge Computing Systems

· Workflows in Edge Computing

· Edge Computing and Smart Cities

· Edge Computing for the Industry 4.0

· Simulations for Edge-based applications

· Reliability in Edge Computing Systems

· Security and Privacy in Edge Computing Systems

· Trust in Edge Computing

· Quality of Service in Edge Computing

· Mission Critical Edge Computing
