Edge Computing and Storage Systems Introduction

Edge Computing and Storage Systems Introduction

The emerging concept edge computing and storage system, allows data produced by IoT devices to be stored and processed close to where it is created, such as base station, instead of sending it to the clouds. Edge computing and storage systems are promised to replace traditional cloud, especially for the IoT devices with poor-connectivity and the applications featured by latency sensitivity and high-resilience. Typical examples of edge computing and storage systems across many industries, including healthcare, telecommunications, manufacturing, and transportation systems.


The features of IoT devices and applications on the edge pose new challenges for data processing and storage systems in multiple aspects, such as the ability to process variant data streams in real time, the ability to recover from constant power failure, the ability to ensure reliability of data processing, the ability to guarantee sustainability, scalability, and etc. These challenges require innovative designs of edge computing and storage systems. The purpose of this special session is to provide a forum for practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds to present and discuss their state-of-the-art ideas, research achievements, implementation experiences in edge computing and storage systems.


We encourage the submission of papers with new theory, analysis, methods and applications. This is a special session of the 12th IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing ( Please submit your paper via the submission site and select the special session of “Edge Computing and Storage Systems” marked with “CPSComECSS”.

Accepted conference papers will be published by IEEE (IEEE-DL and EI indexed). Selected papers, after further extensions and revisions, will be recommended to journal special issues. More details at the conference website:


The topics of interests for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

ž   Edge computing and edge storage architecture
