                         Workshop on Energy Efficient Mobile Computing
                              December 14-16, 2015, Las Vegas, NV, USA
                                                    in conjunction with


Mobile phones are becoming the next computing platform that is already 
dominating as our main source for communication and basic computing 
needs. In addition, the mobile phones are becoming more and more popular 
for healthcare monitoring. Subsequently, we expect better functionality, 
performance as well as a longer battery life from our mobile and 
hand-held devices. Better functionality and performance usually come at 
the expense of battery life. The battery life is critical to providing 
all of the functionality the user is expecting.

To investigate the impact of such issues, the Workshop on Energy 
Efficient Mobile Computing is being organized to bring together 
researchers and practitioners to explore the challenges, opportunities, 
and approaches of energy-aware hardware, operating system, and software 
design for mobile devices. This workshop focuses on all aspects of 
application, OS, and hardware design that provide novel functionality 
without compromising energy efficiency.

CPU/GPU hardware and software optimization.
WiFi and Cellular transmissions optimization.
Storage optimization.
Display optimization.
Mobile security.
Applications that increase productivity and enable mobility
Hybrid local and remote storage solutions.
Mobile healthcare solutions.
Novel communication technologies for mobile devices.
Wearable computing device
Cloud offloading

Participants will be required to register for the main IGSC'15 
conference at the IEEE member or non-member rate (not the student rate), 
which includes access to the workshops.

Call For Papers

The workshop invites authors to submit papers describing original, 
unpublished, work in all areas of energy efficient mobile computing as 
well as energy critical applications such as healthcare monitoring, 
which is not concurrently under review elsewhere. All submissions will 
be reviewed by the Program Committee.

The papers should not exceed six single-spaced pages (IEEE Computer 
Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, 11-point fonts, IEEE 
8.5 x 11 inch) including everything, e.g., abstract, research 
description, figures, tables, and references.

Each paper will be refereed by independent reviewers. Submission is a 
definite commitment for at least one of the authors to register to 
attend IGCC (workshops are included) and present the paper if it is 

The workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society 
along with the IGCC conference proceedings.

Where to Submit?
Files should be submitted by following the instructions available at the 

Program Chairs:
Ali R. Butt, Virginia Tech
Chris Gniady, University of Arizona
Bechuan Zhang, University of Arizona
