The second edition of the Fog World Congress. scheduled October 1-3 at the San Francisco Airport Hyatt, will bring together industry leaders, technologists and researchers from around the world to discuss, explore and share fog computing insights, research, applications, and projections. A full day of tutorials and research tracks are scheduled for October 1, followed by keynotes, panel sessions and exhibitions October 2 and 3.

"Fog World Congress is at the epicenter for fog computing. Through tutorials, case studies and futuristic research, it provides a comprehensive lens into how fog is changing the game in Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, and artificial intelligence (AI)," said Helder Antunes, chairman of the OpenFog Consortium and senior director, Cisco. "Whether you are new to fog or are immersed in it, this conference is the place to come to network with others and to learn about who and what is driving the coming era in fog."

Last year’s inaugural event attracted hundreds of attendees, 80 speakers, 30 exhibitors and representatives from companies across the globe. Event organizers predict the attendance numbers to increase as fog computing continues to advance and the technologies become more mainstream.

"Last year, conversations were focused on ‘what is fog and why do we need it.’ Fast forward one year, and much of that conversation has shifted to ‘fog is now moving innovation from the lab to the real world,’" said Lynne Canavan, co-chair of Fog World Congress and vice president of marketing, OpenFog Consortium. "From package-delivering drones to factory-floor robots, and from privacy in connected cities to robotic surgery, we’re hearing the mantra ‘this is fog’ growing louder."
