International Workshop on the Cloud-Edge-IoT Continuum for Hyper-Distributed Applications and Services (CEICO)

Co-located with the 16th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2023), 4-7 December, Taormina, Italy

The advent of the Cloud-Edge-IoT computing paradigm is revolutionizing the provisioning of hyper-distributed applications leveraging ecosystems of smart and highly heterogeneous Internet of Things (IoT) devices (e.g., sensors, robots, cameras). Unprecedented services are expected to be provided based on the pervasive interaction with and between smart things in a Cloud-Edge-IoT continuum. Robotics, healthcare, logistics, and energy management, among others, are use-case domains that will strongly benefit from this paradigm. However, an inherent need for novel architectural approaches, able to support by design a full convergence and integration among existing and evolving IoT and edge computing technologies into the continuum is strongly felt. Efficient management of extremely heterogeneous Cloud, Edge and IoT resources is a high concern in real-world implementations. In parallel, data processing and analytics are foreseen to rapidly shift towards edge computing facilities to foster data locality. To efficiently manage data management and analysis over such distributed environments, novel hyper-distributed applications are even more embracing microservices-based and cloud-native computing technologies, while distributed computing principles are deeply evolving their lifecycle orchestration paradigms to efficiently exploit resources in the continuum.

The aim of this workshop is to offer researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, in the related areas of Cloud, Edge, Fog, Big Data, Grid, and Cluster Computing communities, a venue on the recent advances in ecosystems and environments based on the Cloud-Edge-IoT continuum paradigm. Submitted papers are expected to focus on the recent advances in theory, application, standardization, and implementation in the Cloud-Edge-IoT continuum domain.
