Presented under the auspices of the Special Year on Networks.

Advances in the technologies of networking, wireless communications, and miniaturization of computers lead to the rapid development in mobile communication infrastructure, and have engendered a new paradigm of computing. Users carrying portable devices can freely move around, while still being connected to the network. This provides flexibility in accessing information anywhere and at any time. On the other hand, the price of this felexibility has introduced new levels of complexity that were not encountered in software and protocol design in wired networking.

The new challenges in designing software systems for mobile networks include location and mobility management, channel allocation, power conservation, among some others. This workshop is aimed at bringing together researchers from academia as well as the industry who are working on various aspects of mobile computing. Topics will include sensor networks, smart spaces, field computing, channel allocation, etc.

This will be a three-day workshop with mainly invited talks.

Proceedings of this workshop will be published in the AMS-DIMACS series.
