Call for Papers


There is a phenomenal burst of research activities in mobile cloud computing, which extends cloud computing functions, services, and results to the world of future mobile communications applications, and the paradigm of cloud computing and virtualization to mobile networks. Mobile applications demand greater resources and improved interactivity for better user experience. Resources in cloud computing platforms such as Amazon, Google AppEngine and Microsoft Azure are a natural fit to remedy the lack of local resources in mobile devices.  The availability of cloud computing resources on a pay-as-you-go basis, the advances in network virtualization, software defined networks, and the emergence of advanced wireless networks such as cloud-based radio access networks (C-RANs) create a new space  of rich research problems. The Workshop on "Mobile Cloud Computing" provides a forum for discussions of all these most up-to-date  developments and brings together industry and academia, engineers and researchers. The Workshop is in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM'2014 conference.


The Workshop invites submissions of your unpublished works on the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Trends and challenges of mobile cloud computing
  • Mobile cloud computing architecture,  designs, and evaluations
  • Communication networks for mobile cloud computing
  • Energy efficient hardware, software, networks and services
  • QoS provisioning and resource management in mobile cloud computing
  • PHY, MAC, routing and transport protocols for mobile cloud computing
  • Cross-layer design and optimization for mobile cloud computing
  • Modeling and performance evaluation of mobile cloud computing
  • Pricing and billing for mobile cloud computing services
  • Network virtualization
  • Software defined networks
  • Cloud-based radio access networks
  • Security and privacy of mobile cloud computing
  • Signal processing for mobile cloud computing networks
  • Information theory for mobile cloud computing
  • Cooperative communications , game theory, and stochastic optimization for mobile cloud computing
  • Interdisciplinary research for mobile cloud computing
  • Standards, policies, and regulations for mobile cloud computing
  • Experimental test-beds and prototype designs and implementations

Contribution format

The authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, complete research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and development. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures. Submissions longer than 6 pages will not be considered.
