The paper also pioneered applying machine learning across local devices and servers. Congratulations to the team for their great achievement!
Prof. Eyal de Lara is stepping down after almost four and a half years at the helm of GetMobile. We as a community owe him a tremendous debt of gratitude for his vision, leadership, and day-to-day perseverance in transforming MC2R into the dynamic, colorful GetMobile. He led the team to fundamentally transform MC2R from an archival journal into the flagship publication that the SIGMobile community deserves and can be proud of. We cannot thank you enough, Eyal!
SIGMOBILE has appointed Dr. Landon Cox as the next Editor in Chief. Landon will formally take over starting with the first issue of the next year (March 2019, Vol 23, Issue 1).
The following two papers were selected in the latest round of research highlights:
- AIM: Acoustic Imaging on a Mobile. ACM MobiSys 2018.
- RuntimeDroid: Restarting-Free Runtime Change Handling for Android Apps. ACM MobiSys 2018.
