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,
This will be a three-day workshop with mainly invited talks.
Proceedings of this workshop will be published in the AMS-DIMACS
