Computer Networks (Elsevier)
Special Issue on Mobile Computing for Content/Service Oriented Networking Architecture

In recent years, we have witnessed a rapid development of wireless and mobile communication and networking technologies which have a significant impact on our lifestyles and the way we run our businesses. To support the proliferation of smart end-user equipment, it is necessary to improve the state-of-the-art techniques in wireless and mobile communications in order to provide quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees among end-users and achieve a high quality-of-experience (QoE) for end-users.

Today the Internet users have paid more attention to requested contents/services and are more concerned about the efficiency, reliability and security of acquiring contents/services, rather than their locations. To address this new communication paradigm, many challenging issues have arisen such as content/service based naming and localization, on-demand and dynamic dissemination/migration, optimization of content transmission, etc. This special issue is devoted to the most recent developments and research outcomes addressing the related theoretical and practical aspects on wireless and mobile computing and communications in content/service oriented networking architecture.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Content/service based naming to support massive numbers of mobile end-users
- Context-aware virtual machine migration for content/service oriented networking architectures
- Content dissemination in the mobile communication environment
- Cognitive radio networks with spectrum/users context awareness
- Network behavioural modelling under dynamic context/service conditions
- Mobility context adaptation for seamless handoff
- Protocol design, modelling and evaluation for content/service oriented networking architecture with mobile end-users
- Content/service transmission over wireless and mobile networks and the QoE supporting issues
- Green communication design for content dissemination to support mobile computing
- Resource management and policy control for content/service oriented networking architecture with massive mobile end-users
- Characterization of traffic and mobility patterns in content/service oriented networking architecture
- The architecture design for content/service oriented networking to support massive numbers of mobile devices
- Testbed developments for content/service oriented networking
- Security, trust and privacy issues for content/service oriented networking architecture to support mobile computing

All received submissions will be sent out for peer review by three experts in the field and be evaluated with respect to the relevance to this special issue, level of innovation, depth of contribution, and quality of presentation. Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope for all submissions. Papers that either lack originality or clarity in presentation will not be sent for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such cases. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by other journals or publications.

Authors should follow the Computer Networks manuscript format described below at the journal site: The submission must be clearly written and in excellent English, with a maximum page limit of 25 pages. If the paper was published in a conference, the submitted manuscript must be a substantial extension of the conference paper. In this case, authors are also required to submit their published conference articles and a summary document explaining the enhancements made in the journal version. Manuscripts should be submitted on line through and select "Mobile Computing" as the article type. A copy of the manuscript in PDF file should also be sent to the guest editors via the email at

The timetable is as follows:
- Paper Submission Due: December 15, 2013
- First Round Notification: March 15, 2014
- Revised Paper Submission Due: April 15, 2014
- Second Round Notification: June 15, 2014
- Tentative Publication Date: 4th Quarter, 2014

The Guest Editors for this issue are:
- Dr. Yulei Wu,
- Prof. Fei Hu,
- Prof. Xinheng Wang,
