IEEE Mobile Cloud 2015 - Call for Papers

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


 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, 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:

The length of camera-ready papers will be limited to 10 pages. All papers should be prepared using the IEEE format, please see
 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

 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 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 

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

 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).
