[PVS-ANNOUNCE] [DMSS 2015] CFP - July 6, 2015 - Larnaca, Cyprus



CALL FOR PAPERS
===============

The 2015 IEEE International Workshop on Distributed Mobile Systems &
Services (DMSS 2015)
(http://cs.queensu.ca/~elgazzar/DMSS2015/)
July 6, 2015 - Larnaca, Cyprus

in Conjuction with the The IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications
(ISCC 2015)
(http://www.ieee-iscc.org/2015/)


The sophistication of today?s mobile applications and services demands
resources beyond the capacity of mobile devices to support advanced
functionality and offer better user experience. Mobile distributed
computing has emerged as a discipline of distributed systems research and
practice towards support for mobility and limited resources. Recently,
Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) promises to augment the capability of mobile
devices through provisioning of computational resources on demand. MCC
enables resource-constrained mobile devices to offload some or all of
their processing and storage requirements to the cloud infrastructure. The
continuous revolution in wireless communication technologies also
unleashes the full potential of mobile distributed systems, where data
transfer and communications between mobile devices and supporting
computing infrastructures are increasingly improving.

The scope of DMSS will extend beyond traditional cloud and mobile
computing technologies to encompass emerging distributed cloud
technologies and networking infrastructures. For example, federated mobile
clouds, information-centric networking architectures, mobile service
platforms based on Web OS, HTML5, mobile crowdsourcing and crowdsensing
approaches, resource allocations, privacy and security techniques in
mobile communications, etc.

The DMSS workshop is intended to create a platform for researchers,
developers, and practitioners in current mobile cloud computing from
academia, industry, and service providers to share and discuss their
ideas, experiences, challenges, and practical implementations related to
MCC technologies and mobile services. We encourage papers that address
current challenges and propose novel research directions. Both position
and work-in-progress papers are also welcomed.

The topics of interest include, but not limited to:
---------------------------------------------------

 - Distributed mobile applications
 - Mobile cloud architectures
 - Crowdsensing and crowdsourcing approaches
 - Quality of information and management in crowdsensing
 - Location-based mobile cloud services and applications
