IEEE Workshop on Distributed Mobile Systems & IoT Services (DMSS'16)- Held in
conjunction with IEEE The twenty first IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC’16) on June 27-30, 2016 in Messina, Italy



The sophistication of today’s mobile applications and services demands resources beyond the capacity of mobile devices to support advanced functionality and offer better user experience. Mobile distributed computing has emerged as a discipline of distributed systems research and practice towards support for mobility and limited resources. Recently, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) promises to augment the capability of mobile devices through provisioning of computational resources on demand. MCC enables resource-constrained mobile devices to offload some or all of their processing and storage requirements to the cloud infrastructure. The continuous revolution in wireless communication technologies also unleashes the full potential of mobile distributed systems, where data transfer and communications between mobile devices and supporting computing infrastructures are increasingly improving.

The DMSS workshop is intended to create a platform for researchers, developers, and practitioners in current mobile cloud computing from academia, industry, and service providers to share and discuss their ideas, experiences, challenges, and practical implementations related to MCC and IoT technologies. We encourage papers that address current challenges and propose novel research directions. Both position and work-in-progress papers are welcomed.

Areas/Topics of interest:

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

- Distributed mobile applications
- Mobile cloud architectures
- Crowdsensing and crowdsourcing approaches

Important Dates:

Paper Submission April 20, 2016 (Extended)
Acceptance Notification May 15, 2016
Camera-ready May 30, 2016

Submission Guidelines:

Authors are required to submit fully formatted, original papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for the final publication. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11" - US letter, Two-Column). Please use either Word or LaTex templates and instructions provided by IEEE. Manuscripts should be no more than 6 pages, double column, IEEE style including tables, figures and references. Additional charges may apply for additional pages. Each accepted paper must be presented at DMSS by one of the listed authors, otherwise it will not be indexed and archived through IEEE Xplore.

Papers must be submitted by April 20, 2016 using EDAS ( Papers meeting these requirements will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member. Papers must present original and unpublished work and should not be currently under review by any other conference or journal.
