Call For Papers

Mobile cloud computing (MCC) is the augmentation of mobile devices with cloud support.
In doing so MCC can enhance the mobile experience in terms of: data storage, general processing capability, energy conservation, multimedia and visualization processing, and cryptography and data safety. To unreliable surrogate computing, clouds add paid-for services with guarantees of availability, resource elasticity, and security. As the Internet of Things at the sensor level can also benefit from cloud support, MCC can serve as an intermediary between devices and sensors and large-scale cloud computing.

Just as there are many benefits of MCC, there are also research challenges to address. For example, large-scale clouds or data centers are connected to the user through wide area-networks, which, though providers direct traffic to their high-speed private networks, still present a latency hurdle. To off-load code requires balancing transmission energy with local computation energy, including computing whether off-loading is justified. Virtual cloud providers, follow-me clouds in which the device utilizes differing cloud-based resources as it move about, and others must address the issue of heterogeneity within the wireless world. There is also a need for standardization between cloud providers, which will allow multiple clouds to be accessed, as well as reducing the worry of vendor lock-in.

Scope and Interests

Because of the massive research activity centered upon cloud computing in general and mobile cloud computing in particular, there are many challenges/issues, some of which have been briefly touched upon above and others of which will not have been anticipated by this Session’s organizers. Papers are requested from, but are by no means limited to, the following topics:

Cloudlets at the Internet edge for enhanced mobile computing.
Virtual cloud providers for mobile computing.
Interworking of federated clouds and mobile clouds for the ‘follow-me’ cloud.
Advances in code offloading in support of mobile computing.
Video transcoding, sharing, searching and filtering within a mobile-cloud infrastructure.
Fog computing as a mediator between the Internet of Things and remote clouds.
Tackling device, cloud provider, and wireless network heterogeneity within mobile computing.
Social and location context processing, management and storage via the mobile cloud.
Security, privacy, and data safety for mobile cloud computing.
Quality-of-Service management and billing for mobile cloud computing.
