June 22-24, 2011 - London, UK
Towards Mobile Middleware Enablers for Seamless Service Provisioning
SCOPE OF CONFERENCE
The advances in wireless communication technologies and the proliferation of mobile devices have enabled the realization of intelligent environments for people to communicate with each other, interact with information-processing devices, and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through various types of networks and systems everywhere, anytime. A key enabler of these pervasive and ubiquitous connectivity environments is the advancement of software technology in various communication sectors, ranging from communication middleware and operating systems to networking protocols and applications.
The conference solicits original technical papers, not previously published and not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
New middleware concepts for mobile devices
Cross platform application development
Open terminal and network APIs
End-to-end architectures for seamless service provisioning and deployment
Integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks and frequency bands
Interworking of mobile applications in mobile cloud environments
QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services
Opportunistic and delay-tolerant mobile and wireless networking
Location-aware and context-aware networking and computing
Energy-efficient applications and services and OS air interface management
Mobility and handoff management
Location and tracking supports and services
Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices
Novel applications and communication protocols for wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, and home networks
Modeling, simulation, and performance evaluation of mobile wireless systems and services
Trustworthiness, security, and privacy of mobile and wireless systems
Accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) series. The proceedings will be available in both soft and hard copies by Springer.
ICST Publications are equipped with complete publication identifiers (ISSN, ISBN, DOI, etc.) and are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing organizations and bibliometric databases (Google Scholar, DBLP, ISI, INSPEC, COMPENDEX, EI, Cirus, Scopus, Scitopia, Cross-Ref, ISTP, etc.).
Selected high-quality papers will be invited to a Special Issue of a prestigious journal in the area, probably Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) and/or Elsevier Pervasive and Mobile Computing (PMC) Journals – approval pending.
