    Elegance in Computation - A Salute to The Legacy of Prof. Mohamed Gouda

    Sunday, November 5th, 2017
    Boston University Photonics Center, MA, USA

    The objective of this workshop is to explore novel and preliminary results in the research areas where Professor Mohamed Gouda has made a lasting and revolutionary impact. We seek contributions in the following areas, but others are welcome:
  • Programming Methodology,
  • Concurrent and Distributed Computing,
  • Self-Stabilizing systems,
  • Fault-tolerant Computing,
  • Secure Computing,
  • Network Protocols,
  • Real-Time Protocols,
  • Formal Methods.

  • We invite submissions of extended abstracts describing recent results relevant to the workshop. We welcome extended abstracts describing new insights and/or application studies even if these are not fully formed. We encourage former students and coauthors of Prof. Gouda to contribute to the workshop.
    Submissions should be in PDF in LNCS style formatting of up to 4 pages (not including references)

    Please send your submission via email to Workshop proceedings will be published as a Technical Report of The University of Texas at Dallas.

    1st Workshop on Principles of Fog Computing and Algorithmic Methods (POFOA)

    Sunday, November 5th, 2017
    Boston University Photonics Center, MA, USA

    Workshop Chair:
  • Ioannis Chatzigiannakis, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy

  • Computing in The Fog: Recent technological advances and the need of a systematic study The Fog computing approach extends the cloud computing paradigm by migrating data processing closer to production site, accelerates system responsiveness to events along with its overall awareness, by eliminating the data round-trip to the cloud. The POFOA workshop brings together international researchers, students and practitioners to present research activities and results on topics related to theory, design, analysis, implementation and applications of fog computing.
