Cloud computing provides huge range of services and virtually unlimited available resources for users. New applications, such as smart building control and virtual reality, have emerged due to a big number of resources and services brought by cloud computing. However, the delay-sensitive applications face the problem of large latency, especially when several smart devices and objects are getting involved in human’s life such as the case of smart cities or the Internet of Things. Therefore, cloud computing can’t meet the requirements of low latency, location awareness, and mobility support.
To solve this issue, researchers have introduced a trusted and dependable solution through the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC) to put the resources and services of the cloud closer to users, which facilitates the leveraging of available services and resources in the edge networks. By this, we are moving from the core (cloud data centers) to the edge of the network closer to the users. FMEC dependability is based on providing user-centric service. The purpose of Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing is to run the heavy real-time applications at the network edge directly using the billions of connected mobile devices.
Many features enable the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing to be a perfect paradigm to the aforementioned purpose, which is the dense geographical deployment of servers, supporting mobility and the closeness to users. As in every new technology, some challenges face the vision of the Fog and the Mobile Edge Computing, which are the administrative policies and security concerns (i.e. secure data storage, secure computation, network security, data privacy, usage privacy, location privacy, etc).
The FMEC event aims to investigate the requirements and opportunities for Mobile Edge Computing dominance. In addition, it seeks for novel contributions that aid in mitigating Mobile Edge Computing challenges. That is, the objective of FMEC is to provide a forum for engineers, scientists, and researchers to explore and exchange new ideas, novel results, and experience on all aspects of Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC).
