FOMC 2011 Call for Papers
The Seventh ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS International Workshop on
Foundations of Mobile Computing
(Formerly known as DIALM-POMC)
San Jose, California, USA
June 9, 2011
[Co-located with FCRC 2011]
Paper submission due: March 21, 2011, 16:59pm PDT
Notification of acceptance: April 20, 2011
Workshop date: June 9, 2011
Mobile communication and computing have recently become a vibrant
research area due to increasing popularity of mobile devices, emerging
mobile technologies and growing number of applications and services.
In view of continuously increasing interaction between communication
and computing, a number of challenging algorithmic issues arise from
unique properties of mobile environments, systems and services, to
inform network design.
The ACM FOMC workshop is devoted to cover contributions both in the
design and analysis of discrete and distributed algorithms and in the
system modeling in the context of mobile, wireless and dynamic
networks. In particular, it aims at bringing together the
practitioners and theoreticians of the field and is intended to foster
cooperation among researchers in mobile computing and in discrete and
distributed algorithms. FOMC 2011 will be held in June in San Jose,
CA, USA, as part of the ACM Federated Computer Research Conference
(FCRC 2011). Previous workshops (under the name DIALM-POMC) had been
co-located with the International Conference on Principles of
Distributed Computing (PODC), the International Conference on Mobile
Computing and Networking (MOBICOM), and the International Symposium on
Distributed Computing (DISC).
Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research,
not currently under review by another conference or journal, are
solicited. Contributions are welcome in all areas related to mobile
and wireless computing and communications where discrete algorithms
and methods are utilized. Specific topics include, but are not limited
* Models of mobility and dynamic networks
* Algorithmic aspects of mobility, including:
- autonomous agents
- dynamic graph algorithms
- local algorithms
- distributed optimization
* Game-theoretic and economic aspects of mobility: incentives and cooperation
* Cryptographic and combinatorial methods for mobility
* Gossiping and information diffusion
* Communication protocols, including routing, multicast and broadcast
* Scheduling and network capacity
* Data link protocols: MAC, channel allocation, cognitive radio networks
* Topology discovery, localization and clock synchronization
* Location- and context-aware distributed applications, sensor networks
* Emerging networks, including delay-tolerant networks, mobile
social applications, vehicular network
* Fault tolerance and security
* Energy saving methods and protocols
Authors must submit their papers electronically, following the
guidelines available on the FOMC web page. Papers for regular
presentation must be no longer than 8 pages on letter-size paper using
at least 10-point font, including figures, tables and references,
using the ACM template format that will be provided. Additional
details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be
read at the discretion of the program committee.
The selection of presentations will be based on peer-review by program
committee members. The proceedings of the workshop will be published
by the ACM.
