************ IEEE Mobile Cloud 2018 - Call for Papers **************


The 6th IEEE International Conference on 

Mobile Cloud Computing, Services, and Engineering

Bamberg, Germany March 26 - March 29, 2018


***** Deadlines:

- Workshop proposal submission: October 15, 2017

- Tutorial proposal submission: October 15, 2017

- Paper submission: November 15, 2017



The integration of mobile computing and cloud services and engineering

new applications that provide resouces and services on an intelligent basis,

process big data collected from mobile sensors, and support Internet of

(IoT) with massive cloud-based backend. Such applications will have

impacts on almost every aspect of our daily life, including transportation, 

e-commerce, healthcare, safety and location privacy, smart home and smart

social interaction, and many more.


This conference will provide a great platform to allow researchers in

and industry to share their latest research ideas and results, development 

activities, and the emerging industry technologies on mobile cloud

services, and engineering. The conference solicits original technical

not previously published and not currently under review for publication

Papers will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and 

correctness. Extended versions of the best papers will be invited for

publication in a planned Special Issue on Mobile Cloud Computing of the IEEE

Cloud Computing Magazine.

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2018 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/industry projects) 

in the field. The proposed workshops should focus on fostering discussion 

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

* A list of program committee (PC) members


IEEE Mobile Cloud 2017 seeks half-day tutorial proposals, which should

clear and focused teaching material covering new and emerging topics related

the main conference. A tutorial proposal should describe concisely the

importance, and timeliness of the tutorial, as well as the targeted



Workshop and tutorial proposals must be submitted via email to the Program
