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


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 processes.

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:

* TRACK 1: Mobile Cloud Computing Models, Architectures, and Platforms

- Mobile cloud security architectures, security policy enforcement, 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

- Abstract submission: October 15, 2014
- Full paper submission: November 1, 2014
- Workshop proposal submission: October 1, 2014
- 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

The length of camera-ready papers will be limited to 10 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 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 information:
* 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).
