In the recent years, cloud computing has cultivated the outsourcing of computing resources like IT infrastructures, service platforms, and software. With the emergence of ultra-fast 4G mobile networks and highly-featured smartphones, tablets, and wearable computing devices(e.g., with always growing sensing capabilities), the prerequisites are now met for bringing cloud computing to the mobile domain. While first commercial products are restricted to the sharing of files, contacts, and calendars among different devices, more sophisticated applications still have to be developed. Future applications of mobile cloud computing will take advantage of the many sensors available on mobile devices, enable new utilization of their generated big data, and have an impact on almost all activities of our social and business life, and include, but are not limited to, mobile marketing, social networks, smart cities, health care, and business processes.

This symposium will provide a great platform to allow researchers and professionals in the industry to exchange their latest research results and development activities on mobile cloud computing and services. The primary objective is to share research ideas and results, emerging industry technologies, and latest advances. The symposium solicits original technical papers (full papers and position papers, see below), not previously published and not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics of interest, in particular targeted to the annual theme, include, but are not limited to:

- Mobility modeling, management and measurement techniques
- Mobility-aware cloud data/streams and associated retrieval/processing techniques
- Mobile cloud security architectures, security policy enforcement, service models (e.g., BYOD, secure offloading, access control, trust platform, and e-commerce models, etc.)
- Secrecy, privacy, authentication, and integrity issues in mobile clouds
- Mobile multimedia content delivery, transferring, and migration
- Green computing in networking and mobile computing and clouds
- User-oriented mobile clouds (mobile community/private/public/ad-hoc clouds)
- Mobile big data computing models
- Mobile crowd collaborating models and associated platforms

The length of camera-ready papers will be limited to 10 pages (also positions papers presenting relevant work-in-progress in the area are welcomed, length limitation = 6 pages).
All papers should be prepared using the IEEE format, please see
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three TPC members. Authors must submit their manuscripts using the EasyChair conference system, please follow this EasyChair link

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI-Index) and included in IEEE Digital Library. For publication, each accepted paper is required to be registered at full rate by one of its authors and presented at IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015.
Selected papers (extended versions) will be published in journals, such as a Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, the Journal of Internet Technology (SCIE indexed), Journal of Communications, International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (IJSEKE-SCI indexed), and International Journal of Handheld Computing Research.

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015 will host multiple one-day or half-day workshops in conjunction with the main conference; topics of interest include any major research area associated with mobile cloud middleware and applications, as well as relevant large-scale experiences (from academic/research projects) in the field. The proposed workshops should focus on creating discussions among participants as well as community building. A workshop proposal should contain at least the following information:
* Name and possible acronym of the workshop
* Motivation and rationale for the workshop
* Draft call-for-papers, including introduction and topics of the workshop

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015 seeks half-day tutorial proposals, which should provide clear and focused teaching material covering new and emerging topics related to the main conference. A tutorial proposal should describe concisely the content, importance, and timeliness of the tutorial, as well as the targeted potential audience.
Workshop and tutorial proposals must be submitted via email to the Workshop and Tutorial Chair Prasad Calyam (
