DialM-POMC 2007: The Fourth ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS International Workshop
on Foundation of Mobile Computing


Mobile computing and communications devices will have an enormous
impact on our lifestyle over the next several decades. The mobility of
distributed computing components raises a number of interesting, and
difficult, algorithmic issues. This workshop is devoted to algorithms
and methods in the context of mobile and wireless computing and
communications. The workshop is intended to foster cooperation among
researchers and industry collaborators in mobile computing and
distributed algorithms.

Date: August 16th, 2007

DIAL M-POMC, the Joint Workshop on Foundations of Mobile Computing
will be co-located with ACM PODC 2007 in Portland, Oregon at Hilton
Portland & Executive Tower, 921 SW Sixth Avenue, Portland, Oregon,
United States 97204.


A total of 34 high quality papers were submitted for presentation at
the Workshop. After careful review by the members of the Technical
Program Committee, 12 papers were accepted for presentation. In
addition to these paper presentations, the workshop will include a
keynote by Prof. Baruch Awerbuch (Johns Hopkins University) and 4
invited talks by the following distinguished researchers -
  * Prof. Madhav Marathe (Virginia Tech)
  * Dr. Ravi Jain (Google)
  * Prof. Tim Roughgarden (Stanford University)
  * Dr. Kamal Jain (Microsoft Research)

The complete program is given below:
