Special Issue "Recent Advances in Fog/Edge Computing in Internet of Things"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2019
Prof. Dr. Houbing Song
The rapid growth of mobile applications and the Internet of Things have placed severe demands on cloud infrastructure, which has led to moving computing and data services towards the edge of the cloud, inside the so-called “edge computing”. There are multiple instantiations of this concept, such as “fog computing” and “multi-access edge computing”.
This Special Issue solicits papers that cover numerous topics of interest that include, but are not limited to:
- Integrated communication and computing design for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Theoretical foundation and models for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Intelligent (real time) data analytics for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Security and privacy in fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Machine learning for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Communication and network architecture and protocols for fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Data management, decision support and novel services in fog/edge computing-based IoT
- Integrated testbed and case studies for fog/edge computing-based IoT

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Abstract: According to Ericsson Mobility Report announced in 2017, by 2022, billions of User Equipment (UE) and IoT devices will connect to IoT networks for collecting our environmental and surrounding data. Since following users’ traveling, mobile devices, including UEs, healthcare monitoring devices, and other devices, may move to everywhere in the world. All edge computing services that serve these facilities need to migrate following the users’ roaming. In this paper, we would like to study how to migrate these services so as to serve/protect mobile devices no matter wherever they go. We have also developed the corresponding processing algorithms and their working sequences. We also evaluate the corresponding performance.
Keywords: edge computing, service migration, SDN controller, SDN, NFV
