Fog computing overcomes the limitations of executing Internet of Things (IoT) applications in remote Cloud datacentres by extending the computation facilities closer to data sources. Since most of the Fog nodes are resource constrained, accommodation of every IoT application within Fog environments is very challenging. Hence, we need to efficiently identify which set of applications should be deployed in Fog. It becomes even more complicated when the application characteristics in terms of urgency, size and flow of inputs are considered simultaneously. The necessity of time-optimized execution further intensifies the application management proble..
