MCPC 2009 : International Conference on Mobile Communications and Pervasive Computing
Call For Papers
Mobile communications have remained one of the most vibrant and stimulating areas driving forward the Information and Communications Technology. Quite clear is appearing the tomorrow?s picture of networks and communications, that is, convergence of diversified networks, integration of IP based core network and flexible robust wireless access, self-organization and self-management, on-demand service-oriented architectures, to just mention a few striking characteristics.
Pervasive computing is emerging as the next paradigm for distributed and mobile computing through building systems of communicating miniaturized devices, sensors and actuators in which ambient, personalized trustworthy services built out of pervasive infrastructure and information are seamlessly available anywhere, anytime, and in all forms. By embedding ambient intelligence in everyday objects, our workplaces, our homes and even ourselves, pervasive computing and communications will enable a new breed of applications and systems which are composed of massive smart objects to create the environments that underpin a smart world.
MCPC 2009 provides a premier forum for researchers and engineers alike to present
state-of-the-art research and development progresses in all areas related to
architecture, design, implementation, application and evaluation of mobile communications and pervasive computing as these technologies are permeating and integrating into our everyday living and working environments.
Topics of particular interest include (but not limited to) the followings.
(1) Mobile Communications
(2) Wireless Networks
(3) Autonomic Networks and Communications
(4) Pervasive Computing and Communications
(5) Pervasive Infrastructures and Services
(6) Pervasive Applications
