We are living in an increasingly connected mobile world, where smartphones
and tablets are prevalent, wearable devices are growing, and the "Internet
of Things" is permeating our lives. The number of mobile applications
continues to grow, and mobile connectivity is used for everything from Web
browsing to home security, Google Glass to vehicle fleet tracking. These
applications and services have rapidly enriched our lives, particularly
because much of the mobile eco-system is vibrant and conducive to open

An important part of this ecosystem is the underlying connectivity provided
by cellular networks. While innovations in mobile services and applications
have thrived, innovations in the underlying cellular systems are more
limited. Specifically, research in mobile cellular networks has been
hampered by the fact that academic researchers typically do not have access
to radios, mobile protocol stacks, management tools, and realistic cellular
network traces. As a result, until recently most wireless networking
research was limited to Wi-Fi or limited, privileged access to provider
networks. The emergence of open cellular mobile network testbeds is
beginning to address these issues, and there is widespread optimism in the
research community that we are at a critical point where researcher efforts
can align with commercial, regulatory and standardization interests to
foster innovation in cellular networks.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together network operators, as well
as researchers from both industry and academia, to discuss emerging
problems, challenges, and potential solutions in this domain. To facilitate
this discussion and engage stakeholders, we are soliciting technical
papers, including position papers, that are no more than 6-pages long in
the standard ACM two-column, 10 point format. Early work that stimulates
discussions is also strongly encouraged.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics:
• Radio resource allocation and usage profiling
• Cellular network architecture and its evolution
• Understanding and modeling cellular data traffic
• Billing and pricing models
• Cellular network security and privacy issues
• Cellular network management
• Cellular network measurements
• Mobility
• Energy efficiency
• Spectrum shortage
• Protocol design
• Algorithms to improve performance and efficiency
• Software-defined networking in cellular networks
• Mobile and wearable applications on cellular networks
• Machine-to-machine services on cellular networks
• Internet of Things in cellular networks

Each submission must be a single PDF file no longer than six (6) pages in
length (in two-column, 10-point format) including references. Papers must
include the author name and affiliation for single-blind peer reviewing by
the program committee. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present
their papers at the workshop. Submissions must be original work not under
review at any other workshop, conference, or journal.

Kobus Van der Merwe, University of Utah
David Choffnes, Northeastern University
