Event Details

On September 9th, Chameleon will host a virtual community workshop to discuss emergent research directions and application requirements driving the requirements for an edge testbed. 

The goal of this workshop is to determine the shapre and priorities for an edge testbed with the involvement of broad scientific community. We will have a presentation on the current CHI@Edge offering, keynotes setting out research directions and plans for their support, and most importantly, presentations from CHI@Edge users describing their work. This workshop is targeted to all interested in edge computing in Computer Science research, education, and innovative applications. 

Call for Presentations

We invite all CHI@Edge users to propose presentations of their projects: we’d like to hear how the testbed works for you and how you would like us to make it better! 

Abstracts should be no more than 1 page in length, and include the following:

The abstracts should be sent to on or before August 23rd
