C-EMNs 2010 CFP

The 1st Intl. Workshop on Issues in Computing over Emerging Mobile

(C-EMNs' 2010)

October 31, 2010, Delhi, India


To be held in conjunction with: 

The 29th IEEE International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems
(SRDS 2010)





Mobility is rapidly turning out to be a critical component of many next
generation networking systems. Prominent among these include Mobile
Vehicular Networks, Mobile Social Networks, Mobile Sensor Networks, Next
Generation Cellular Networks, Mobile Clouds etc. While computing in the
presence of mobility has been a well studied topic in the Networking
arena of late, the emphasis has centered on only Mobile AdHoc Networks

Unfortunately, many assumptions made in traditional MANETs like mobility
models, purpose/ scope of mobility, social aspects, network scale do not
hold in many emerging mobile networks. Consequently, existing theories,
architectures and protocols in traditional MANETs for issues like data
delivery, data management, reliability, security, privacy etc. are not
enough to be applied for emerging mobile networks, and need a ground-up
redesign. Furthermore, a vast number of problems related to computing
over wireless communications are emerging in networks like vehicular
safety, fairness in content sharing, mobility centric threats and
countermeasures, and performance of mobile cloud computing that are yet
to be explored in detail.

The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and
students to disseminate and exchange original research ideas on
important topics in a wide class of emerging mobile networks.

Topics of interest -

We are soliciting original and unpublished research papers, or on-going
works in their advanced stages on a broad spectrum of topics in the
following areas including (but not limited to):

-         Mobility models for emerging mobile networks

-         Cross Layer Optimizations

-         Dependability and Reliability
