    DEWCOM 2018

    The 3rd International Workshop on Dew Computing

    (October 29 – 31, 2018.  Toronto, 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, professionals, and students currently working in any areas to participate this event and to be pioneers of this new research area.

    The 1st Face-to-Face DewCom STC Committee Meeting will be held during DEWCOM 2018.

    All submissions must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference (except CASCON 2018). All submissions should be related to the area of dew computing.

    Submission Categories:

    • Research papers: must not exceed 12 pages including figures, tables, and references.
    • Short papers/Oral presentation abstracts: at least one page; must not exceed 3 pages.

    Important Dates:

    • Submission Deadline: September 15, 2018
    • Acceptance Notification: September 30, 2018

    An electronic proceedings will be available to DEWCOM 2008 participants at the conference and will be available for the public after a while. Accepted papers and oral presentations will also be recorded by DewCom STC website as dew computing early contributions in Resources Section. Selected papers/presentations will be recommended to Open Journal of Cloud Computing (OJCC), International Journal of Cloud Computing (IJCC), and other journals for publication after extension.

    Steps of Submissions:


    DEWCOM 2018 Participants should register both CASCON and DEWCOM.

    CASCON Registration

    DEWCOM Registration: To simplify the registration process, we require each participant to join the LinkedIn group “DEWCOM2018”. If you are already in LinkedIn, you may just search DEWCOM2018 inside LinkedIn and join. If you are not already in LinkedIn, you might need to go through a LinkedIn registration process and then search and join DEWCOM2018 group. We may use this group to reach each other on the conference site and on your way in/out the conference. It will also be used to distribute DEWCOM related documents and photos. When everything is finished, this group will be deleted. For long-term connection related to this area, people should join “Dew Computing” LinkedIn group.

    Both CASCON registration and DEWCOM registration are free.


    Detailed information regarding to discounted price of the hotel rooms will be available later.
