IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015 - 3rd Call for Papers - DEADLINE EXTENSION

The 3rd IEEE International Conference on
Mobile Cloud Computing, Services, and Engineering
San Francisco, CA, USA, March 30 - April 3, 2015


- Tutorial proposal submission: December 1, 2014
- Review notification: January 9, 2015
- Camera-ready submission and conference registration: January 31, 2015
- Conference: March 30 - April 3, 2015

In the recent years, cloud computing has cultivated the outsourcing of 
computing resources like IT infrastructures, service platforms, and 
software. With the emergence of ultra-fast 4G mobile networks and 
highly-featured smartphones, tablets, and wearable computing 
devices(e.g., with always growing sensing capabilities), the 
prerequisites are now met for bringing cloud computing to the mobile 
domain. While first commercial products are restricted to the sharing of 
files, contacts, and calendars among different devices, more 
sophisticated applications still have to be developed. Future 
applications of mobile cloud computing will take advantage of the many 
sensors available on mobile devices, enable new utilization of their 
generated big data, and  have an impact on almost all activities of our 
social and business life, and include, but are not limited to, mobile 
marketing, social networks, smart cities, health care, and business 

This symposium will provide a great platform to allow researchers and 
professionals in the industry to exchange their latest research results 
and development activities on mobile cloud computing and services. The 
primary objective is to share research ideas and results, emerging 
industry technologies, and latest advances. The symposium solicits 
original technical papers (full papers and position papers, see below), 
not previously published and not currently under review for publication 
elsewhere. Topics of interest, in particular targeted to the annual 
theme, include, but are not limited to:

service models (e.g., BYOD, secure offloading, access control, trust 
platform, and e-commerce models, etc.)
- Secrecy, privacy, authentication, and integrity issues in mobile clouds
- Mobile multimedia content delivery, transferring, and migration
- Green computing in networking and mobile computing and clouds
- User-oriented mobile clouds (mobile community/private/public/ad-hoc 
- Mobile big data computing models
- Mobile crowd collaborating models and associated platforms

The length of camera-ready papers will be limited to 10 pages (also 
positions papers presenting relevant work-in-progress in the area are 
welcomed, length limitation = 6 pages).
All papers should be prepared using the IEEE format, please see
Each paper will be reviewed by at least three TPC members. Authors must 
submit their manuscripts using the EasyChair conference system, please 
follow this EasyChair link

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press 
(EI-Index) and included in IEEE Digital Library. For publication, each 
accepted paper is required to be registered at full rate by one of its 
authors and presented at IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015.
Selected papers (extended versions) will be published in journals, such 
as a Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing, the 
Journal of Internet Technology (SCIE indexed), Journal of 
Communications, International Journal of Software Engineering and 
Knowledge Engineering (IJSEKE-SCI indexed), and International Journal of 
Handheld Computing Research.

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015 will host multiple one-day or half-day workshops 
in conjunction with the main conference; topics of interest include any 
major research area associated with mobile cloud middleware and 
applications, as well as relevant large-scale experiences (from 
academic/research projects) in the field. The proposed workshops should 
focus on creating discussions among participants as well as community 
building. A workshop proposal should contain at least the following 
* Name and possible acronym of the workshop
* Motivation and rationale for the workshop
* Draft call-for-papers, including introduction and topics of the workshop

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015 seeks half-day tutorial proposals, which should 
provide clear and focused teaching material covering new and emerging 
topics related to the main conference. A tutorial proposal should 
describe concisely the content, importance, and timeliness of the 
tutorial, as well as the targeted potential audience.
Workshop and tutorial proposals must be submitted via email to the 
Workshop and Tutorial Chair Prasad Calyam 
(mobilecloud15wst.chair at gmail.com).
