The 2nd International Workshop on Dew Computing

(May 22 – 26, 2017, Fortuna, Grand Hotel Adriatic, Opatija, Croatia)

About DewCom 2017

DewCom 2017 intends to gather the latest research & development results on Dew Computing paradigm. It seeks high-quality contributions, which demonstrate the theoretical and practical progress of Dew Computing. DewCom 2017 seeks original, high quality and unpublished research contributions as well as implementation experiences from researchers in the area of Dew Computing, including but not limited to the following topics:

Low End Distributed Systems
Dew Computing Theory and Vision
Dew Computing Structure and Architecture
Dew, Cloud and Fog Computing integration and/or interrelation
Dew Computing and IoT, Ubiquitous Computing
Dew Computing and Databases
Dew Computing and Networks
Dew Computing Protocols and Security
Dew Computing Applications

Two types of contributions are solicited: full research papers and oral presentation abstracts. Full research papers are limited to 6 pages in length, following the standard IEEE, double column format. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Oral presentation abstracts are limited to 250 words.

Official language is English.

DewCom 2017 will be held together with the 40th Jubilee International Convention on Information and Communication Technology, Electronics and Microelectronics (MIPRO 2017).

Abstraction can be submitted here.

About Dew Computing

Dew Computing is recognized as a new structural layer in the existing distributed computing hierarchy. In this hierarchy, Dew computing is positioned as the ground level for the Cloud and Fog computing paradigms, focusing on the lowest level Physical Edge Devices (PED). Vertical, complementary, hierarchical division from Cloud to Dew Computing satisfies the needs of high- and low-end computing.

These new computing paradigms lower the cost and improve the performance, particularly for concepts and applications on the network edge such as the Internet of Things (IoT), the Internet of Everything (IoE), as well as in the complex domain of Physical Edge Devices. The goal of Dew Computing is to fully realize the potentials of embedded computers and sensors/controllers, the network edge processing power, personal computers and cloud services, as a seamless and integrated heterogeneous super-system. The Dew computing paradigm will require new programming models that will efficiently reduce the complexity, improve the productivity, and usability of scalable distributed computing.

Important Notes

Based on the submitted abstracts and interests, consortium partners will be selected for a H2020 project proposal “Dew Computing as a Dense Ground of Physical Edge Services” (Call ICT 16 2016-2017). Selected prominent works will be published in a special edition issue “Dew Computing” in Open Journal of Cloud Computing (OJCC).

OJCC, an open access and peer-reviewed online journal, publishes original and creative research results on cloud computing. OJCC distributes its articles under the open access model. All articles of OJCC are fully open access and online available to readers free of charge. Publisher: RonPub UG (haftungsbeschränkt), Lübeck, Germany. (


Opatija, with its 170 years long tourist tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting renowned artists, politicians, kings, scientists, sportsmen as well as business people, bankers, managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offering of Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools and is able to provide the perfect response to all demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities on the Mediterranean, particularly important for its international ICT conventions MIPRO that have been held in Opatija since 1979 gathering more than a thousand participants from more than forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific center in Southeast Europe and the European Union in general.
