Topic 14: Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing


The tremendous advances in wireless networks, mobile computing, sensor networks along with the rapid growth of small, portable and powerful computing devices offers opportunities for pervasive computing and communications. This topic will deal with cutting-edge research in various aspects related to the theory or practice of mobile computing or wireless and mobile networking, including architectures, algorithms, networks, protocols, modeling and performance, applications, services, and data management. The aim is to bring together computer scientists and engineers from academics and industry working in these exciting and emerging area of pervasive computing and communications to share their ideas and results with their peers. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:


  • Architectures, infrastructures & protocols to cope with pervasive computing & mobile communication
  • Mobile ad hoc, sensor/actuators networks & RFIDs technologies
  • Security, privacy, and fault-tolerance of mobile/wireless systems
  • Hybrids systems, integration and interworking of wired and wireless networks, mesh networks
  • Positioning, tracking, location-aware services and applications
  • Context aware computing, applications and services for mobile users
  • Resource management, interference management, mobility management and data management
  • Modeling, measurement, metrology and simulation aspects of mobile networks and ubiquitous computing
  • Experiences in the implementation of parallel computing algorithms in mobile/sensor nodes
  • Fundamental aspects of mobile computing and wireless networking
