The 4th ACM International Workshop on Mobility
in the Evolving Internet Architecture (MobiArch 2009)

Co-located with MobiSys, 22 June 2009, Krakow, Poland

With the recent development of technologies in wireless access and
mobile devices, user, terminal, and network mobility has become an
indispensable component of today's Internet vision, and it is likely to
continue in the near future, while affecting the whole architectural
design of the future Internet. Yet, issues like efficient mobility
management and optimization, locator-identifier split, multi-homing,
security, wireless access and related operational/deployment concerns
are still in their early stages of development. Moreover, the Internet
architecture, its end-to-end principles, and business models will
require rethinking due to the massive penetration of mobility into the
Internet. For instance, an appropriate system that allows communicating
with a mobile host requires addressing several fundamental issues with
the Internet architecture, such as ability to locate the mobile
host/service, preserving ongoing communications upon changes of
locations, as well as efficient and secure handover management. As
another example, the emerging wireless technologies may pose additional
challenges to the Internet architecture since they introduce design
principles different from the original Internet.

MobiArch 2009 welcomes submissions, from both researchers and
practitioners, in exploration of recent advances in architectures,
protocols, and experiences with emerging technologies on various
mobility issues over the Internet, with an emphasis on wireless
infrastructures and mobility patterns for mobility support, new mobility
protocols, service discovery, routing and location management, mobile
network performance evaluation and modelling, multi-homing, security,
architectural impacts and deployment considerations. Furthermore, the
potential of usability of mobility services for connecting people and
devices in developing regions of the world into the Internet
infrastructure will be also explored.

Topics of MobiArch 2009 cover all aspects of architectural issues and
system support for mobility in the Internet, including but not limited to:

* Impacts of new wireless technologies/services, networking
technologies, and mobility patterns on the Internet architecture
* Architectures and protocols for mobility support in the Internet,
ranging from approaches in link, network, transport to
session/application layers and cross-layer design
* Location management, routing, locator/identifier split, multi-homing
and load sharing issues
* Security and privacy issues in mobility networks and impacts to
Internet architecture
* Architectures and mechanisms for wireless/mobile connectivity in
extreme environments (e.g., remote areas, developing countries)
* Performance issues with mobility in the Internet
* QoS and middlebox issues in mobility networks and impacts to Internet
* Economic and deployment issues of mobility solutions (infrastructure
and devices)
* Impact of social aspects on mobility architectures, mobile application
and protocol design
* Technologies for mobile wireless access and interactions

Submissions must present original results. Selected papers will be
forward-looking, describe their relationship to existing work, and have
impact and implications for ongoing or future research.
Submitted papers must be no more than 6 pages long, two columns, with no
characters in smaller than 10 point fonts, and must fit properly on US
"Letter"-sized paper (8.5x11 inches). Margins must be of 1 inch on all
edges (top, bottom, left, and right) of each page. All paper submission
will be handled via EDAS ( Papers will be
reviewed single blind.
