The 14th International Conference on Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing

July 24-26, 2017

Leuven, Belgium



Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing (MobiSPC) have evolved into an
active area of research and development. This is due to the tremendous
advances in a broad spectrum of technologies and topics, including wireless
networking, mobile and distributed computing, sensor systems, RFID
technology, and the ubiquitous mobile phone. MobiSPC-2017 solicits papers
that focus on the theory, systems, practices and challenges of providing
users with a successful mobile or wireless experience. This includes how
mobile computing changes how people pervasively use their computers,
computing resources and applications, as well the systems, services and
technologies enabling those applications.

MobiSPC-2017 will provide a leading edge, scholarly forum for researchers,
engineers, and students alike to share their state-of-the art research and
developmental work in the broad areas of pervasive computing and mobile
