Accepted Workshops

The following workshops will be colocated with the European Conference on Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (ESOCC) 2020 and will take place in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, September 28th 2020:

1st International Workshop on Edge Adoption and Migration (EdgeWays 2020)

Description: Edge Computing reallocates part of the cloud resources to the edge of the network and therefore, close proximity to the data generating/consuming devices, which brings huge benefits in scenarios where the traditional cloud fails to meet certain quality requirements. As an increasing number of organizations are investigating the potential of extending their cloud environments by placing some of their services on the edge, it is mandatory to develop methods, tools and frameworks to help introducing edgification coupled with a clear process of edge migration.
The 1st International Workshop on Edge Adoption and Migration (EdgeWays 2020) aims to bring together cloud and edge computing experts from academia and industry from different IT communities, e.g., edge computing, cloud computing, IoT, software engineering, services computing, big data, information systems, etc. Its main goals are to promote discussions and collaboration amongst participants, to help disseminate novel edge computing practices and solutions, and to identify future edge computing challenges and dimensions. To this end, the workshop will foster a more interactive participation model, in which authors, invited speakers and attendees will be encouraged to socially engage beyond the planned workshop activities.
