  • Introduction

    With the improvement of people’s living standards, the research on smart cities is becoming more and more mature, and the problem of improving the quality of life of urban residents is attracting the attention of researchers. Fog calculations are expected to play an important role in the future smart city. It extends the cloud infrastructure by processing and storing data between Internet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud platforms. Traditional cloud infrastructure cannot manage large amounts of data generated by small IoT devices for real-time processing. The above issues require a scalable, efficient and secure fog-assisted infrastructure to provide optimal service to users. This Special Issue invites contributions that address the latest issues and advances in smart applications based on future smart cities and their associated data security. In particular, submitted papers should clearly show novel contributions and innovative applications covering, but not limited to, any of the following topics based on fog and edge Computing and their practical application in smart cities
    Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
    1. Fog/Edge computing algorithms
    2. Fog/Edge computing for body area networks
    3. Security and Privacy in Fog/Edge Computing
    4. Monitoring and maintenance of environmental data
    5. Parallel computing, distributed computing reliability, and security by Fog/Edge computing
    6. Ubiquitous computing applications in smart cities and its advanced or future applications
    7. Smart Fog/Edge computing and its advanced or future applications
    8. Smart home and its advanced or future applications by Fog/Edge Computing
    9. Smart e-business and its advanced or future applications by Fog/Edge Computing
    10. Apply Fog/Edge Computing's artificial intelligence and IoT devices
    11. Fog/Edge Computing for smart services inside smart cities
    12. Smart education systems and its advanced or future applications by Fog/Edge Computing

    Aims and Scope:

    1. Fog/Edge Computing algorithms
    2. Smart cities
    3. Parallel computing
    4. Security and Privacy in Fog/Edge Computing
    5. Body area networks in Fog/Edge Computing
    6. IoT in Fog/Edge Computing
