WS24: The Second workshop on "A4E: AI/ML for Edge/Fog Networks"

The workshop on AI/ML for/of Edge/Fog Networks (A4E) intends to leverage intelligent decision-making to enable these resource-constrained devices to serve the IoT applications efficiently at the edge/fog networks. A significant research effort is required on theories, architecture, and algorithms for integrating AI for managing the Fog and Edge networks efficiently. Additionally, different AI/ML algorithms need to be designed, which can efficiently use the heterogeneity of the Edge/Fog networks, while ensuring efficient network performance. This workshop, A4E, intends to leverage technological advancements and techniques in the applications of AI/ML for Fog and Edge networks. A4E encourages the global communication and networking research community to address the issues in applying AI techniques in Fog and Edge networks for enriching the efficient usage and utilization and developing novel AI/ML schemes for the Fog/Edge networks, while considering its heterogeneous architecture. The scope of this workshop includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • AI/ML for Smart Healthcare IoT networks
