FOMC 2013 : The Ninth ACM International Workshop on Foundations of Mobile Computing
Conference Series : Foundations of Mobile Computing
Call For Papers
Mobile communication has become a vigorous field of research in computer science, due to the wide spreading of mobile technologies, applications and services. The intertwining of communication, computation and mobility constantly poses new challenges to algorithmic design in this area. The Foundations of Mobile Computing (FOMC) workshop is dedicated to all aspects that cover contributions both in the design and analysis of discrete/distributed algorithms, and in the system modeling of mobile, wireless and similarly dynamic networks. It aims to bring together the practitioners and theoreticians of the field to foster cooperation between research in mobile computing and algorithms.
FOMC 2013 will be held on October 17 (late afternoon)-October 18 (midday) in Jerusalem, Israel, co-located with the 27th Internation Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC 2013). Previous workshops (under the name DIALM-POMC through 2010) have been co-located with PODC, the International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking (MOBICOM), and the International Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC).
In this year's FOMC workshop, submissions can be submitted to one of *two* tracks:
The regular papers track solicits technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal.
The new position paper track solicits descriptions of creative and compelling new research directions concerning the convergence of discrete/distributed algorithms and mobile computing.
Contributions are welcome in all areas related to mobile and wireless computing and communications where discrete algorithms and methods are utilized. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
Models of mobility and dynamic networks Algorithmic aspects of mobility, including:
dynamic graph algorithms
Game-theoretic and economic aspects of mobility: incentives and cooperation
Cryptographic and combinatorial methods for mobility
Gossiping and information diffusion
Communication protocols, including routing, multicast and broadcast
Scheduling and network capacity
Data link protocols: MAC, channel allocation, cognitive radio networks
Topology discovery, localization and clock synchronization
Location- and context-aware distributed applications, sensor networks
Emerging networks, including delay-tolerant networks, mobile social applications, vehicular networks
Fault tolerance and security
Energy saving methods and protocols
