The 3rd International Workshop on Dew Computing

(October 29 – 31, 2018.  Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

About DEWCOM 2018

Dew computing is a new computing model appeared after the wide acceptance of cloud computing. While cloud computing uses centralized servers to provide various services, dew computing uses on-premises computers to provide decentralized, cloud-friendly, and collaborative micro services to end-users. Dew computing is an on-premises computer software-hardware organization paradigm in the cloud computing environment, which is complementary to cloud computing. The key features of dew computing are that on-premises computers provide functionality independent of cloud services and they also collaborate with cloud services.

Dew computing has just gone through its emerging stage. A few research groups contributed to dew computing from different angles. As an emerging and fast-growing research area, it is necessary to bring researchers in this area together to exchange research progress and to envision the path ahead. DEWCOM 2016 and DEWCOM 2017 played an important role in shaping the future of Dew Computing.

This year, DEWCOM 2018 will be held together with the the 28th Annual International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering (CASCON 2018). One of the goals of this arrangement is for Dew Computing researchers to exchange ideas with industry partners. Welcome researchers currently working in any areas to participate this event and to be pioneers of this new research area.
