Edge clouds are becoming an important type of computing infrastructure for collecting and processing big data as low-latency and reliable communication technologies such as 5G, and Web of Things (WoT) infrastructures are developed and deployed. Edge clouds are especially useful for efficient and secure data collection and processing for smart cities and smart factories. In edge cloud environments, it is essential to provide Web services for efficiently collecting and processing various types of big data in real-time. In addition, it is necessary to develop a framework for building big data service applications in a reliable and usable manner. The third edition of the BECS workshop aims to provide a venue in which scholars and practitioners can share their experiences and present ongoing work on providing value-added Web services for users by utilizing big data in edge cloud environments.
The workshop starts at 14:30 CEST on June 6, 2023.
The workshop program is as follows (all time is in Central European Standard Time, CEST):

Edge Clouds are consolidating in multiple domains since, amongst other benefits, they provide a breeding ecosystem for a new generation of service chains that grow and evolve in a continuum environment that provides unique opportunities for integration and customization. However, this promising interoperability landscape comes with challenges that become apparent as the chain’s complexity arises, such as elasticity, privacy, and capacity management. In this talk, Prof. Pablo Fernández will reflect on some key aspects that should be addressed to embrace these opportunities and successfully govern the creation and operation of services in edge clouds.
Pablo Fernandez is an Associate Professor of Software Engineering at the University of Sevilla. Throughout his career, he has participated in more than 30 research and transfer projects with extensive collaboration with private companies and public administrations. All this activity has been developed within the Applied Software Engineering Group (ISA Group), contributing to its creation in 2007. Currently, he leads the Service Line, which focuses on evolving service science and engineering in the context of service governance over the cloud continuum. He regularly collaborates with different groups internationally, with more than 60 publications in international journals and conferences; he has been an invited scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, the Technical University of Vienna (TWU), and Newcastle University.
In recent years, he has been appointed as Director for research resources at the Vice-Chancellor's Office for Research of the University of Sevilla, coordinating the design and evolution of IT Systems to optimize the management and procedures that support the research activity for the community of 4000+ researchers in the University. Before his academic career, he played the roles of Software Architect and Project Manager in different firms, acting as IT Infrastructure supervisor during the Athens 2004 Olympics.
