Scope

The Tenth Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (MobiQuitous 2013) will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds to interact and exchange experiences about the design and implementation of mobile and ubiquitous systems. Areas addressed by the conference include systems, applications, social networks, middleware, networking, data management and services, all with special focus on mobility and ubiquitous computing.

Topics

We solicit technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions should clearly identify how they relate to issues on mobile and ubiquitous systems. Contributions describing an overall working system are particularly of interest. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Architectures, systems and applications
Wearable computing
Personal area networks
Wireless technologies (Bluetooth, ZigBee, 802.15.x, WiFi, WiMAX)
Wireless Internet access in ubiquitous systems
Ad hoc and sensor network support for ubiquitous computing
Reconfigurability and personalization
Wireless/mobile service management and delivery
Security and privacy
Social networks
Trust Computation, Propagation and Use
Community based computing
Service and knowledge discovery, matching and composition mechanisms
Localization and tracking
Context- and location-aware applications and services
Agent technologies in ubiquitous, wearable, and mobile systems
Toolkits, testbed, development environments, and languages for ubiquitous computing
Rapid prototyping of ubiquitous applications
Mobile and ubiquitous data management and processing
Queries, transactions and workflows in mobile and ubiquitous environments
Multimodal interfaces (speech, video kinetic, tactile)
User generated content Mixed (virtual/real) world infrastructures
Energy efficient in communications and networking
Energy efficient algorithms
Energy-aware mechanisms
Modeling and simulation on green communications and networking

Publications

Papers will be rigorously reviewed by the international technical program committee. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) series. LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus.
Paper submission

Paper submission will be handled electronically (see the instructions). Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of their full paper. Papers must not exceed 12 pages single column (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points.
