The 18th International Conference on Mobile Systems and Pervasive Computing
Leuven, Belgium
August 9-12, 2021

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-2020 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-2021 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

MobiSPC 2021 will be held in the city of Leuven. Leuven is the capital of
the province of Flemish Brabant in Belgium. It is located about 25
kilometres (16 miles) east of Brussels. It is the 10th largest municipality
in Belgium and the fourth in Flanders. Leuven is home to the Katholieke
Universiteit Leuven, the largest and oldest university of the Low Countries
and the oldest Catholic university still in existence. The related
university hospital of UZ Leuven, is one of the largest hospitals in
Europe. The city is also known for being the headquarters of Anheuser-Busch
InBev, the world's largest brewer and one of the five largest
consumer-goods companies in the world.

Leuven's Town Hall is one of the best-known Gothic town halls worldwide and
Leuven's pride and joy. It took three architects and thirty years to build
it. Leuven's 'Hall of Fame' features 236 statues, which were only added to
the façade after 1850. There are 220 men and 16 women in total. On the
bottom floor are famous Leuven scientists, artists and historical figures,
dressed in Burgundian garb. The first floor is reserved for the patron
saints of the various parishes of Leuven. The facade is adorned by the
counts and dukes of Brabant while the towers primarily feature biblical
