"Fog computing" is a new paradigm that exploits the benefits of virtualized IT infrastructures closer to end-users. In a nutshell, Fog computing offers an appealing combination of computational power, storage capacity, and networking services at the edge of the networks. Fog computing supports applications and services that require very low latency, location awareness, and mobility (including vehicular mobility). The spectrum of potential uses cases is huge, and Fog computing works in concert with Cloud computing. Indeed, Fog promises to extend the reach and complement current cloud services. Smart cities, smart grid, smart connected vehicles are active areas where Fog plays a significant role. Emerging distributed services and applications at the edge of the network is the theme of FOG workshop. The workshop will be an excellent forum to present and discuss hierarchical partitioning of computation and data, distributed algorithms for data and computation placement, security issues in a multi-tenant environment, and network-based computing and storage. The FOG workshop aims at bringing together researchers from Academia and Industry, to identify and discuss technical challenges, exchange novel ideas, and explore enabling technologies.
