    Call for Papers: Fog Networks - JCN

    Publication Date: June 2018

    Fog computing as an extension of cloud computing is able to deploy data storage, computing and communication, control and management along the cloud to things continuum. From a systematic perspective, fog networks provide a distributed computing system with a hierarchical topology. Fog networks aim at meeting stringent latency requirements, reducing power consumption of end devices, providing real-time data processing and control with localized computing resources, and decreasing the burden of backhaul traffic to centralized data centers. However, in the era of fog computing and networks, we need to rethink about end-to-end network architecture, fog-enabled service management mechanisms, computing offloading and task allocation among fog-cloud or fog-fog nodes, context-aware computing and communication tradeoff analysis, fogonomics and operational models, and scalability and security issues.

    Call for Papers: Fog Services and Enabling Technologies

    http://www.comsoc.org/commag/cfp/fog-services-and-enabling-technologies

    Recently, Fog computing has received considerable attention in various application domains such as time-sensitive transactions in intelligent manufacture, smart transportation, and cellular networks. Fog computing derives benefits from the increasingly smarter and capable devices that reside not only at the network perimeter but also along the cloud-to-things continuum. This means that Fog-enabled services can be deployed anywhere in a network. Such continuous service provisioning and management have great potential to elevate the intelligence within computing networks to realize context-awareness, timely response, and network traffic offloading. As a new way of delivering services, Fog computing has the great potential to reshape the landscape of the ICT industry and provide tremendous novel business opportunities to customers. Read More

    Prof. Xiliang Luo’s Research Group Won “Excellent Paper Award” from IEEE ICUFN 2017

    During the Ninth International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN), which was held in Milan, Italy, from July 4th to July 7th, the paper “DL CSI Acquisition and Feedback in FDD Massive MIMO via Path Aligning” from Prof. Xiliang Luo’s research group was selected by the technical program committee (TPC) to receive the “Excellent Paper Award”.

    During the Ninth International Conference on Ubiquitous and Future Networks (ICUFN), which was held in Milan, Italy, from July 4th to July 7th, the paper “DL CSI Acquisition and Feedback in FDD Massive MIMO via Path Aligning” from Prof. Xiliang Luo’s research group was selected by the technical program committee (TPC) to receive the “Excellent Paper Award”. 

    ICUFN is co-organized by Korea Institute of Communications and Information Sciences (KICS), IEEE Communication Society, and the Institute of Electronics, Information, and Communication Engineers (IEICE). The topics in 2017 ICUFN include next-generation information and networking solutions, big data and cloud, autonomous systems, and ubiquitous IoT. 

    The TPC only selected 2 papers as “Excellent Paper Awards” from more than 200 accepted papers. The paper from Prof. Xiliang Luo’s research group proposed to align the downlink channel paths to facilitate the channel state information (CSI) acquisition and feedback in FDD massive MIMO systems. In a sense, this work paved the way for a scalable CSI feedback framework and can be utilized as a design philosophy for FDD massive MIMO in next-generation cellular networks.

    Is China Outsmarting America in A.I.?

    HONG KONG — Sören Schwertfeger finished his postdoctorate research on autonomous robots in Germany, and seemed set to go to Europe or the United States, where artificial intelligence was pioneered and established.

    HONG KONG — Sören Schwertfeger finished his postdoctorate research on autonomous robots in Germany, and seemed set to go to Europe or the United States, where artificial intelligence was pioneered and established.Instead, he went to China.“You couldn’t have started a lab like mine elsewhere,” Mr. Schwertfeger said.The balance of power in technology is shifting. China, which for years watched enviously as the West invented the software and the chips powering today’s digital age, has become a major player in artificial intelligence, what some think may be the most important technology of the future. Experts widely believe China is only a step behind the United States. Read More
