===================CALL FOR WORKSHOP PAPERS===================
18th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous
Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (MobiQuitous 2021)
8-11 November 2021
Beppu Convention Center, Beppu, Japan in a hybrid format


The goal of the eighteenth annual International Conference on Mobile and
Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (MobiQuitous 2021)
is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing high-quality research
in the field, involving international practitioners and researchers from
diverse backgrounds. MobiQuitous 2021 will thus foster research
collaboration through focused discussions, interaction and exchange of
experiences that will designate future research efforts and directions.

We are pleased to invite you to submit your paper to workshops held in
conjunction with MobiQuitous2021. Submissions should be in English,
following the Springer formatting guidelines. See the submission page:


WORKSHOP DAY: 8th November, 2021.


+ IWSST2021 (First International Workshop on Smart Society Technologies)

IWSST 2021 is a forum to discuss technologies and applications that solve
relevant problems in modern society and thus contribute to the evolution of
our society into a super-smart society. In a super-smart society,
cyberspace (virtual space) and physical space (real space) are
interconnected and mutually support each other. To enable such a future
society, we need to develop a wide range of smart society technologies,
including artificial intelligence (AI), big data (data processing and
analytics), Internet of Things (IoT), privacy-preserving data handling,
robotics (e.g., robot-supported elderly care), etc., low-energy
communication, mobility (e.g., self-driving vehicles), healthcare,
well-being, disaster response, cyber-physical systems. Therefore, in this
workshop, we solicit submissions that contribute new techniques and ideas
to enabling the vision of Society 5.0.

+ MUSICAL2021FALL (The fourth International Workshop on Mobile Ubiquitous
Systems, Infrastructures, Communications and AppLications)

The MUSICAL 2021 Fall workshop is a forum to discuss technologies related
to future mobile ubiquitous systems, from every possible aspect of
information and communication technologies. Since future mobile ubiquitous
systems could include a wide range of technologies, including wired and
wireless communications, data processing and analytics, mobile and social
applications, etc., this workshop accepts all of them to have beneficial
discussions related to the upcoming mobile ubiquitous world. Especially we
expect graduate students, Ph.D. students, and other young researchers to
submit and attend this workshop. The area of mobile ubiquitous technologies
is just emerging now and the area requires new fresh ideas from young
researchers and students to create a stimulative mobile ubiquitous world.
So, the discussion by young researchers on this topic would be very
interesting and exciting.

+ UMUM (Ubiquitous and Multi-domain User Modeling)

Deep Learning (DL) has recently been widely applied to user modeling for
real-world applications such as context-aware recommendation or
location-aware services. However, many studies focus on building DL models
only in one or few domains and applying them to identical domains. Thus,
how to build ubiquitous and multi-domain user models and increase their
applicability in real-world contexts remain an open problem. Here, we refer
to “ubiquitous” as the capability to adapt to, and therefore exist in
diverse contexts, and “multi-domain” as the capability of training using
data from multiple domains.

+ InnovTech4Health (Innovative Technologies for the Healthcare Empowerment)

The use of mobile devices is growing in the different daily activities, and
its use started in young people, but elderly people is now using this type
of devices. Technological equipment are widely improving and they include
different sensors, which can acquire different physical and physiological
data. The development of these systems is included in the development of
information and communication technologies (ICT) technologies for
wellbeing. The e-Health and m-Health solutions may not act only in the
treatment and monitoring stages of different diseases, but it can act as
preventive, promoting healthy lifestyles with the equipment that causes bad
habits. These solutions can cooperate between them, health the people to
live better, but the most important subject is the healthcare that will not
start only at the hospital, but it starts in the home.

+ AMECO (1st Workshop on Computation Offloading in Ad-Hoc and Mobile Edge

Even though computing devices are becoming more powerful with new
technological advances, they can hardly keep up with resource-hungry
applications that require large amounts of CPU power, memory and battery.
Computation offloading can help to augment the computational capabilities
beyond the boundaries of a local device by distributing the workload to
remote computing resources. However, as soon as a task leaves the local
device, it is exposed to varying network conditions and is likely to face a
heterogeneous resource pool. Mobile cloud computing (MCC) was introduced to
provide reliable computing power at scale in a pay-per-use manner. Despite
all its advantages, MCC might bring along considerable network latencies,
deployment costs, and privacy concerns. Mobile edge computing (MEC) can be
considered an alternative to MCC as it makes use of distributed edge
servers in proximity which reduces communication latencies and enhances
privacy. Ad-hoc computing makes opportunistic use of sporadically available
resources which might even be unreliable end-user devices. This paradigm
facilitates a better resource utilization, new resource sharing
opportunities, and highly decentralized architectures but introduces a new
level of complexity in terms of resource management, scheduling decisions,
and fault tolerance.


- Call for Posters and Demos

The Mobiquitous 2021 Posters and Demos track complements the paper tracks
of the conference by offering an opportunity to present late-breaking
research results, ongoing research, and early-stage research speculative or
innovative work in progress.
