The paper Celestial: Virtual Software System Testbeds for the LEO Edge has been accepted at the 23rd International Middleware Conference.
We present an approach to test LEO edge software systems in the cloud with emulated servers (PDF can be found at Publications).
Additionally, we publish a technical report (PDF can be found at Publications).
Starting today, our courses offered in the summer term 2022 can be found here.
The paper Towards Distributed Coordination for Fog Platforms has been accepted at the 22nd IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid 2022).
We present a hybrid approach to configuration data management in the fog (PDF can be found at Publications).
The paper Crowdsourcing in der Radverkehrsforschung has been accepted for publication in Internationales Verkehrswesen's January 2022 edition.
In the paper (unfortunately only available in German), we describe our experiences from participating in SWR's #besserRadfahren campaign on cycling safety. (PDF can be found at Publications).
The paper QoS-Aware Resource Placement for LEO Satellite Edge Computing has been accepted at the International Conference on Fog and Edge Computing (ICFEC 2022).
We show how the existing research on resource placement on a 2D torus can be applied to server and service placement for the LEO Edge by leveraging the unique topology of LEO satellite...
Both projects OpenBikeSensor and SimRa won 1st place in the German Bicycle Award in the category Service & Communication.
In the Germany-wide competition with 128 projects submitted, both projects made it to the list of nominees. After three years of project runtime, SimRa has recorded more than 60,000 rides and more than half a million driven...
Starting January 2022, Trever Schirmer works for us as a research associate. In his reseach, amonst others, he studies FaaS environments.
The workshop paper Predictive Replica Placement for Mobile Users in Distributed Fog Data Stores with Client-Side Markov Models has been accepted at the 1st Workshop on Distributed Machine Learning for the Intelligent Computing Continuum (DML-ICC).
We present variations of Markov model algorithms that can run on clients to increase the data...
The paper AuctionWhisk: Using an Auction-Inspired Approach for Function Placement in Serverless Fog Platform has been accepted for publication in the Software: Practice and Experience journal (Wiley).
We present an auction-inspired approach to FaaS function placement in the fog in which application developers bid on resources while fog nodes decide...
