SIGMOBILE has awarded the seminal edge computing paper, "The Case for VM-based Cloudlets in Mobile Computing”, a 2022 Test-of-Time award. These awards recognize papers that have had a sustained and significant impact in the SIGMOBILE community over at least a decade. The award recognizes that a paper's influence is often not fully apparent at the time of publication, and it can be best judged with the perspective of time.

  SIGMOBILE states:


"What is known as edge computing today can be traced back to this Cloudlets paper, which proposed the need to support localized data and computation, thus avoiding the high latency and bandwidth limitations associated with traditional cloud computing."


Congratulations to the authors, Mahadev Satyanarayanan (Carnegie Mellon University), Paramvir Bahl (Microsoft Research), Ramon Caceres (AT&T Research), Nigel Davies (Lancaster University), for this significant recognition!
