IEEE Services 2015 Visionary Track on Ubiquitous Mobile Cloud (UMC 2015)
June 27 - July 2, 2015, New York, USA
within IEEE SERVICES 2015


Mobile devices are now the most convenient and ubiquitous interface for accessing information services. The advanced sensing capabilities of these devices enable them to effectively observe, analyze and understand the context of the current environment and thus are used as service providers. However, the resource constraints of mobile devices limit the type and scale of functionality that can be offered by mobile applications/services. Mobile cloud promises to bridge the gap between limited resources and increasing demands of future mobile applications through an elastic resource provisioning model. This convergence between cloud computing technologies and the convenience of mobile devices offers improved performance of mobile systems and superior user experience. The topic of ubiquitous mobile cloud draws on inspirational ideas from many diverse domains including cloud computing, wireless technologies, context-aware computing, mobile commerce, location-based services, and vehicular networks.

The UMC theme is intended to create a platform for researchers, developers, and practitioners in current mobile cloud and ubiquitous computing from academia, industry, and service providers to share and discuss their ideas, experiences, challenges, and practical implementations related to ubiquitous mobile cloud. We encourage high quality submissions addressing current challenges and proposing novel research directions. We invite technical research papers, industrial papers, position papers, and tool demonstration papers.

List of topics include, but are not limited to:

* Mobile cloud architectures and applications
* Mobility support for ubiquitous cloud computing
* Mobile cloud services
* Mobile cloud data and storage architectures
* Software architecture and design of mobile cloud
* Mobile social networking
* Applications of mobile vehicular cloud
* Context management in ubiquitous mobile cloud
* Collaborative mobile cloud computing
* Mobile sensing Big Data: paradigms and techniques
* Localization mechanisms and algorithms
* Computation offloading: strategies and techniques
* Performance evaluation of mobile cloud techniques and models
* Reliability, availability, and scalability in ubiquitous mobile cloud
* Energy and resource optimization in mobile cloud
* Quality of Service (QoS) studies
* Software defined networks
* Privacy and security protections
* Virtualization and programming infrastructures

Important Dates

Submission of research papers due: April 15, 2015
Notification of paper acceptance: April 25, 2015
Submission of camera-ready papers: May 1, 2015
Theme date: June 27 - July 2, 2015

Paper submission

Papers should be written in English. Manuscripts should be no more than 8 pages, double column, IEEE style including tables, figures and references. Please use either Word or LaTex templates and instructions provided by IEEE. Papers must be submitted by April 15, 2015.
