Keynote Speech Prof. Helen D. Karatza (Aristotle University of Thessalonik) - Cloudy, Foggy and Misty Computing for Time-Critical Applications

Share

IEEE ICTfest 2022


The exponential growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) applications contributed to the rapid development of smart environments, thus making the traditional Cloud computing inefficient for transferring the enormous volume of data generated by IoT devices. As a result, Fog and Mist computing have emerged as new computing paradigms to solve the problem of transmission latency by placing computations in the vicinity of the IoT layer. Typically, IoT applications are time-critical and the primary concern is meeting their deadlines. Consequently, the utilization of appropriate resource allocation and scheduling strategies for real-time applications in multi-tier environments is of paramount importance. In this keynote we will discuss research directions driving the development of these new computing models. Furthermore, we will present and analyze novel techniques addressing the challenges in resource allocation and scheduling in cloud, fog and mist computing environments.
