“Fog Computing+”, initiated by SCSE Innovation Lab, was a half-day workshop dedicated to driving innovation and discussion in various aspects of fog computing. Sponsored by OpenFog Great China Region Committee, it gathered outstanding professors and scientific researchers from worldwide at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University to present their research results, share visions and ideas, and discuss the opportunities and challenges of fog computing.
This event included four speeches by distinguished professors from Singapore, China, and USA, including Prof Yang Yang from Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Prof Nirwan Ansari from New Jersey Institute of Technology, Asst/Prof Rui Tan from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and Prof Suresh Subramaniam from the George Washington University.
Fog Computing has recently attracted a lot of attention from the communication, computing and control communities. At the workshop, the speakers introduced a fog-enabled 5G/IoT R&D platform which applies SDN and NFV techniques to realize the key functions of a telecom operator (Prof Yang), a Drone mounted with a micro Base Station (DBS) to assist in provisioning mobile access (Prof Ansari), a secure clock synchronization system which uses the sine voltage waveform of a utility power grid to synchronize network nodes connected to the same grid (Asst Prof Tan), and MapReduce, a powerful paralleled processing paradigm that can optimizing the performance of deadline-sensitive jobs in cloud computing (Prof Subramaniam).
