MUSICAL 2019 : International Workshop on Mobile Ubiquitous Systems, Infrastructures, Communications and AppLications (co-located with IEEE PerCom 2019)
Call For Papers
AIMS & TOPICS OF INTEREST:
The MUSICAL'19 workshop is a forum to discuss technologies related to future mobile ubiquitous systems, from every possible aspect of information and communication technologies. Since future mobile ubiquitous systems could include a wide range of technologies, including wired and wireless communications, data processing and analytics, mobile and social applications, etc., this workshop accepts all of them to have beneficial discussions related to the upcoming mobile ubiquitous world.
Especially we would expect young researchers and students to submit and attend this workshop. The area of mobile ubiquitous technologies is just emerging now and the area requires new fresh ideas from young researchers and students to create a stimulative mobile ubiquitous world. So, the discussion by young researchers on this topic would be very interesting and exciting.
The workshop will be organized in a manner that fosters interaction and exchange of ideas among the participants. Besides paper presentations, time will be allocated to a session for group discussion. For each group, we assign a few active researchers as coordinators for facilitating discussion among participants and feedback to young researchers.
We solicit original research articles that include new ideas or technologies that promote discussion on future technological innovations from a wide variety of technical seeds.
Topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to:
- ad-hoc networks
- body area networks
- cloud computing
- context-aware applications
- distributed computing
- energy-aware computing/systems
- home gateways/networks
- Internet of Things
- infrastructure technologies
- location-based/tracking systems
- mobile applications
- mobile data management/analytics
- mobile device architectures
- mobile user experience
- multimedia communication/applications
- network architecture/protocols
- participatory sensing
- peer-to-peer computing
- security and privacy
- semantic web technologies
- sensor networks
- smart environment
- social network applications
- software-defined networks
- ubiquitous devices/middleware
- vehicular networks/applications
- wearable computing
- web-based technologies
- wireless communications/networks
Paper submission: November 10, 2018
Notification of acceptance: December 22, 2018
Camera ready: January 11, 2019
This workshop assumes paper submissions from graduate students, Ph.D. students, and other young researchers.
The papers for the workshops should be at most 6 pages in the IEEE template. The authors will be able to buy an additional page for the camera-ready version. All detailed information about the camera-ready versions will be made available later on the conference website. Submitted papers must not have been published or currently be under consideration for publication at other venues.
Each accepted workshop paper requires a full registration of PerCom 2019 (no registration is available for workshops only).
Workshop papers will be included and indexed in the IEEE digital libraries (Xplore).
