International Workshop on Mobile and Social Computing (MoSCom'14)
in conjunction with 2014 World Ubiquitous Science Congress (U-Science 2014)
August 24-27 2014, Dalian, China

Workshop Outline

With the rapidly increasing popularity of handheld and wearable computing
devices, the boundaries between physical and virtual lives are blurring as
people are connected to online social networks anytime and anywhere. The
exciting trend brings great opportunities and challenges for disruptive
innovations in existing computing paradigms. MoSoCom aims to provide a
cutting edge forum to foster interaction between researchers and
professionals from academia, industry and government. The workshop will
cover research on all theoretical and practical aspects related to mobile
and social computing, such as social network analysis, mobile computing
technology, data mining, trend prediction, social recommendation, mobile
cloud, innovative mobile application, security and privacy.

MoSCom will be held on August 24-27 2014 in Dalian, China, in conjunction
with 2014 World Ubiquitous Science Congress (U-Science 2014, and also co-located with the 14th
International Conference on Algorithms and Architectures for Parallel
Processing (ICA3PP 2014,
