The Cloud-Edge Continuum is a new hyper-distributed computing paradigm that aims at seamlessly interconnecting and abstracting the computing power and storage capacity of the Cloud with the data processing capabilities of edge devices, IoT devices, and sensors. Intelligently balancing tasks in a continuum enables faster response times, lower latency, and more efficient use of network bandwidth. However, efficiently managing extremely heterogeneous Cloud and Edge resources is a pressing concern in real-world large-scale implementations. Such heterogeneity refers to differences in network capabilities, processing power, software stack, APIs, and security protocols across the Cloud-Edge Continuum infrastructure. This raises significant challenges for the network community to develop new and efficient protocols and communication services. Given the potential benefits of the Cloud-Edge Continuum, it is important to explore the current state-of-the-art research and identify the challenges and opportunities in this area.
The Cloud-Edge Continuum (CEC) workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss the latest research, trends, and challenges in ecosystems and environments based on Cloud-Edge Continuum paradigm. The primary goal of this workshop is to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas among researchers and stakeholders. The workshop can provide a platform for participants to share their experiences, best practices, case studies, and to identify emerging research areas and potential solutions to existing challenges. By bringing together experts from different domains, the CEC workshop also aims to provide insights into how Cloud-Edge Continuum can be applied in various fields, such as healthcare, transportation, smart cities, and manufacturing.
We welcome submissions of original research, work-in-progress, and proof of concepts describing original ideas and presenting new directions. We invite submissions covering the aspects around the design, development, and evaluation of architectures, technologies, and applications for the Cloud-Edge Continuum, including but not limited to:
July 1, 2023 (8:00 p.m. CET)
July 7, 2023 (8:00 p.m. CET)
August 21, 2023

Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference or journal. Paper submissions should adhere to the IEEE Conference formatting requirements with double column and the font size must be 10 points. The length of the final paper with all its content (including references) must not exceed 6 pages. Papers must include author’s names and affiliations for single-blind peer reviewing by the PC. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the workshop. The IEEE template available here.
