Context and Scope
Fog computing is the extension of cloud computing into its edge and the physical world to meet the data volume and decision velocity requirements in many emerging applications, such as augmented and virtual realities (AR/VR), cyber-physical systems (CPS), intelligent and autonomous systems, and mission-critical systems. The boundary between powerful centralized cloud and massively distributed, Internet connected sensors, actuators, and "things" is blurred in this new computing paradigm.

The 2020 IEEE International Conference on Fog Computing (ICFC 2020), colocated with the CPS-IoT Week 2020 in Sydney, April 21-24, 2020, brings together researchers and practitioners across academia, industry, and governments to exchange visions, technical challenges, and research outcomes in a single forum. ICFC takes a broad view of Fog Computing, including computation, connectivity, mobility, sensing and actuation, theories, and systems.

ICFC topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* System architecture for fog computing
* Coordination between cloud, fog, and sensing/actuation endpoints
* Connectivity, storage, and computation in the edge
* Data processing and management for fog computing
* Efficient and embedded AI in the fog
* System and network manageability
* Middleware and coordination platforms
* Power, energy, and resource management
* Device and hardware support for fog computing
* Programming models, abstractions, and software engineering for fog computing
* Security, privacy, and ethics issues related to fog computing
* Theoretical foundations and formal methods for fog computing systems
* Applications and practical experiences


Manuscript Guidelines and Submission
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research manuscripts that demonstrate current research in all areas of fog computing.

Manuscripts are submitted in PDF format and are limited to 6 single-spaced double-column pages (plus at most 2 extra pages) using 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and references. Please refer to IEEE proceedings templates (https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html) for templates and complete formatting instructions.

Manuscripts are submitted via the Easychair Conference Management System:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfc2020

All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference attendees. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE and included in IEEEXplore.

We invite you to visit the ICFC Call for Papers page (https://sites.google.com/view/icfc2020/call-for-papers) for more information.
