The 5th IEEE Mobile Cloud conference seeks to present original and timely 

research related to the design, implementation, analysis, evaluation, and 

deployment of mobile cloud systems, services, and applications. The

of mobile computing and sensing with cloud computing enables new

that process big data collected from the physical world, and have an impact 

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

healthcare, safety and location privacy, smart cities, social interaction,

Internet of things (IoT) etc. This conference will provide a great platform

allow researchers in academia and industry to exchange their latest research

results and development activities on mobile cloud computing, services, and 

engineering. Its primary objective is to share the latest research ideas and

results, as well as the emerging industry technologies related to mobile 

computing and cloud computing. The conference solicits original technical 

papers, not previously published and not currently under review for

elsewhere. Papers will be judged on originality, significance, clarity, 

relevance, and correctness. Extended versions of the best papers will be 

invited for fast-track publication in a planned Special Issue on Mobile 

Cloud Computing of the IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine.




Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


- Mobile cloud computing models, architectures, middleware, and platforms

- Formal methods for mobile cloud system design and analysis

- Mobile cloud service and application testing

- Engineering mobile cloud systems and services 

- Mobile crowdsensing models and associated platforms 

- Mobile cloud resource management, provisioning, and migration

- Mobile-aware cloud data management and data retrieval

- Mobile cloud data centers, storage, and networking technologies

- Virtualization techniques for mobile cloud computing and services

- Security and privacy for mobile cloud computing and networking 

- Reliability of mobile cloud services and applications

- Energy-saving mobile cloud protocols 

- Mobile multimedia and mobile social community services 

- Cloud-assisted human-centered applications based on wearable computing

- Mobile-enabled virtual reality 

- Mobile commerce and cloud-based marketplace

- Intuitive user interfaces for cloud-based mobile applications

- Research case studies and experimental reports 

- Industry reports on experience and lessons learned

- Mobile cloud enabled pervasive learning and education

IEEE Mobile Cloud 2017 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
