 Special Session on MOBILe Wireless MiddleWARE, Operating Systems, and Applications



The recent advances in wireless communications and the proliferation of powerful mobile devices have enabled smart cyber-physical environments where people and devices can seamlessly interact and where mass-market users are willing to receive/contribute to a wide range of mobile services, everywhere and anytime. A key enabler of these pervasive ubiquitous environments is the advancement of software and middleware technologies in various mobile-related sectors, ranging from effective synergic management of wireless communications to mobility/adaptivity support in operating systems, from horizontal support to crowdsourcing in different application domains to dynamic offloading to cloud resources, only to mention a few.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


  • New middleware concepts for mobile devices
  • Mobile middleware enabling machine-to-machine communication
  • Mobile crowdsourcing and people-centric collaborative sensing
  • Big data and cloud computing scalable processing of mobile sensors-generated datastreams
  • Smart space/city middleware and applications
  • Middleware for mobile cloud computing (e.g., seamless offloading)
  • Novel mechanisms, algorithms, middleware, and applications for wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, and home networks
  • End-to-end architectures for seamless ubiquitous service provisioning and deployment
  • Synergic integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks
  • QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services
  • Opportunistic, delay-tolerant, and store-carry-forward techniques for mobile and wireless networking
  • Location/context-dependent support and services, also with Quality of Context awareness
  • Energy-efficient applications, services, and middleware
  • Mobility and handoff management
  • Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices
  • Modeling, simulation, and performance evaluation of mobile wireless systems and services
  • Trustworthiness, security, and privacy of mobile and wireless systems
  • Thin client technologies, Mobile Web APIs, BONDI, WAC, HTML5
  • Impact of IMS, RCS, RCS-e, EPC and LTE on the evolution of mobile middleware
