The Cloud-Edge Continuum is a new hyper-distributed computing paradigm that aims at seamlessly interconnecting and abstracting the computing power and storage capacity of the Cloud with the data processing capabilities of edge devices, IoT devices, and sensors. Intelligently balancing tasks in a continuum enables faster response times, lower latency, and more efficient use of network bandwidth. However, efficiently managing extremely heterogeneous Cloud and Edge resources is a pressing concern in real-world large-scale implementations. Such heterogeneity refers to differences in network capabilities, processing power, software stack, APIs, and security protocols across the Cloud-Edge Continuum infrastructure. This raises significant challenges for the network community to develop new and efficient protocols and communication services. Given the potential benefits of the Cloud-Edge Continuum, it is important to explore the current state-of-the-art research and identify the challenges and opportunities in this area.

The Cloud-Edge Continuum (CEC) workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss the latest research, trends, and challenges in ecosystems and environments based on Cloud-Edge Continuum paradigm. The primary goal of this workshop is to foster collaboration and exchange of ideas among researchers and stakeholders. The workshop can provide a platform for participants to share their experiences, best practices, case studies, and to identify emerging research areas and potential solutions to existing challenges. By bringing together experts from different domains, the CEC workshop also aims to provide insights into how Cloud-Edge Continuum can be applied in various fields, such as healthcare, transportation, smart cities, and manufacturing.

Posters

We invite multiple EU projects working in the area of Cloud-Edge Continuum to present a poster in a dedicated poster session during the CEC'24 workshop. The goal of this session is to allow knowledge sharing among EU projects active in the Cloud-Edge Continuum research and foster collaboration among EU researchers and EU organizations from industry and academia. This session will help stimulate conversations and discussions on challenges and preliminary solutions in Cloud-Edge Continuum with real-world use-cases.

Note: As these posters are by invitation and not peer-reviewed, they will not appear in IEEE proceedings. Get in touch with the CEC'24 organizing committee, if you are interested in joining the workshop and presenting a poster on your EU project.
