Call For Papers

************ IEEE Mobile Cloud 2018 - Call for Papers **************

The 6th IEEE International Conference on
Mobile Cloud Computing, Services, and Engineering
Bamberg, Germany March 26 - March 29, 2018

***** Deadlines:
- Workshop proposal submission: October 15, 2017
- Tutorial proposal submission: October 15, 2017
- Paper submission: November 15, 2017

The integration of mobile computing and cloud services and engineering enables
new applications that provide resouces and services on an intelligent basis,
process big data collected from mobile sensors, and support Internet of things
(IoT) with massive cloud-based backend. Such applications will have tremendous
impacts on almost every aspect of our daily life, including transportation,
e-commerce, healthcare, safety and location privacy, smart home and smart city,
social interaction, and many more.

This conference will provide a great platform to allow researchers in academia
and industry to share their latest research ideas and results, development
activities, and the emerging industry technologies on mobile cloud computing,
services, and engineering. The conference solicits original technical papers,
not previously published and not currently under review for publication elsewhere.
Papers will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and
correctness. Extended versions of the best papers will be invited for fast-track
publication in a planned Special Issue on Mobile Cloud Computing of the IEEE
Cloud Computing Magazine.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Theory, Modeling and Methodologies
- Mobile cloud computing models, architectures, and platforms
- Formal methods for mobile cloud system design and analysis
- Testing methodologies for mobile cloud services and applications
- Engineering on-demand mobile cloud systems and services
- Design of energy-saving mobile cloud protocols
- Cloud-IoT integration, cloud-centric IoT and software defined IoT
- Mobile crowdsensing models and associated platforms
- Mobile cloud resource management, provisioning, and migration
- Mobile-aware cloud data management and data retrieval
- Mobile cloud data centers, storage, and networking technologies for 5G
- Mobile artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning
- Virtualization techniques for mobile cloud computing and services
- Security, reliability and privacy for mobile cloud computing

Applications and Industry Practice

Papers must be written in English. Manuscript must include a title, an abstract
with 200-250 words, and a list of 4-6 keywords. Each paper is limited to 8 pages
normally, including tables, figures and references. All papers must be prepared
in the IEEE double column proceedings format. Please see
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three TPC members. Authors must submit
their manuscripts using the EasyChair conference system, please follow this
EasyChair link:

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI-Index)
and included in IEEE Digital Library. For publication, each accepted paper is
required to be registered at full rate by one of its authors, and at least one
author is required to attend and present the paper at the conference for the
paper to be included in the final technical program and the IEEE Digital Library.
The length of camera-ready papers will be limited to 8 pages with no surcharge.
Up to 2 additional pages may be purchased with extra page fee upon the approval
of the Program Chairs.

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2018 will host multiple one-day or half-day workshops in
conjunction with the main conference; topics of interest include any major
research area associated with mobile cloud middleware and applications, as
well as relevant large-scale experiences (from academic/industry projects)
in the field. The proposed workshops should focus on fostering discussion
among participants as well as community building. A workshop proposal should
contain at least the following information:

* Name and possible acronym of the workshop
* Motivation and rationale for the workshop
* Draft call-for-papers, including introduction and topics of the workshop
* A list of program committee (PC) members

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2017 seeks half-day tutorial proposals, which should provide
clear and focused teaching material covering new and emerging topics related to
the main conference. A tutorial proposal should describe concisely the content,
importance, and timeliness of the tutorial, as well as the targeted potential

Workshop and tutorial proposals must be submitted via email to the Program
