    DEWCOM 2019

    The 4th International Workshop on Dew Computing

    (October 12 – 14, 2019)

    About DEWCOM 2019

    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, DEWCOM 2017, and DEWCOM 2018 played an important role in shaping the research area of Dew Computing.

    Because dew computing is a new computing model, dew computing researchers and DewCom STC members are spread over the world in 26 countries. Due to travel documents, travel expenses, and other reasons, some dew computing researchers were not able to submit papers to our annual workshop. To alleviate  this problem, DEWCOM 2019 will be held online. One of the goals of this arrangement is for Dew Computing researchers to involve dew computing researchers in developing countries. Welcome researchers, professionals, and students currently working in any areas to participate this event and to be pioneers of this new research area.

    Paper submission and review procedure of this workshop will follow standard IEEE conference protocols. Electronic conference proceedings will be provided to each participant. The online platform and workshop schedule will be provided later.
