Aims and scope of the track

To address several open research issues regarding sustainability of future Fog/Edge systems, this track aims at solicit contributions highlighting challenges, state-of-the-art, and solutions to a set of currently unresolved key questions including – but not limited to – performance, modelling, optimization, energy-efficiency, reliability, security, privacy and techno-economic aspects of Fog/Edge systems. Through addressing these concerns while understanding their impacts and limitations, technological advancements will be channeled toward more sustainable/efficient platforms for tomorrow’s ever-connected systems.

For the past thirty two years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been a primary  forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. SAC 2019 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by University of Cyprus, in Limassol (Cyprus). The SFECS track at ACM SAC 2018 solicits contributions on the joint research and practice of Sustainable Computing and Fog/Edge Computing.
