ACM Mobile Cloud '13 (AMC13)


Mobile computing paradigm has transformed the way we compute and communicate in recent years. An increasingly large number of applications are now being ported to the mobile platforms. Processing power of mobile computers and smart phones are steadily improving as we see Dual core and Quad-core processors in handheld devices. However, the requirements from users largely surpass the storage as well as processing capability. This gap between the resource demand and supply in the mobile computing environment can only be filled by embracing cloud computing in a much larger scale than we use today. Mobile Cloud Computing is, therefore, emerging as the next step in the evolution of ubiquitous computing and personal communications. The proposed workshop Mobile Cloud 2013 will attract a larger community interest because many mobile applications that demand huge storage and processing power cannot be realized by any other mechanism.

Airborne Networks and Communications


Airborne networks are mobile ad hoc networks consisting of manned and unmanned air vehicles as well as ground vehicles. The ability of air vehicles to communicate voice, video, and data offers enhanced safety and efficiency for Next Generation airborne networks. Airborne networks can benefit many civilian applications such as air-traffic control, border patrol, and search and rescue missions. This workshop is an opportunity for researchers engaged in airborne networking to discuss state-of-the-art, share their research with their peers, and develop directions for future research in this emerging field.

MobileHealth 2013


The increasing overall cost of medical care have been the driven force for partially replacing the assistance of nursing staff by small health surveillance and communication equipment like sensors, networks, monitoring software, which is considered to be cost effective and would also increase life standard. However, to set up such platforms several issues along the communication chain should be resolved. The 3rd edition of MobileHealth workshop (MobileHealth 2013) aims at providing a forum for practitioners and researchers from Academia, research labs and industry to interact and exchange experiences about theoretical and practical aspects of pervasive wireless healthcare networking and systems.

Frontiers of Communication Networks: Theory and Algorithms


Welcome to the Workshop on the Frontiers of Communication Networks: Theory and Algorithms, to be held in coordination with MobiHoc 2013. The workshop will bring together different research communities that utilize analytical methods to model, design and evaluate large scale networked systems. The format of the workshop is hold invited talks of 30 minutes duration each, and to explore a range of cutting edge topics in the space of routing, scheduling, learning, games and optimization in the context of communication networks.

Theory and Practice of Opportunistic Routing in Wireless Multi-hop Networks


Opportunistic routing for multi-hop wireless networks has seen recent research interest to overcome deficiencies of traditional routing. First, we discuss the multihop wireless networks in the context of uni/anycast routing and the implications of wireless medium on the performance of conventional routing solutions. We then discuss a simple erasure channel model often used in the literature to characterize the wireless medium and its impact on the design of wireless (conventional) routing algorithms. We then briefly review the notions of opportunistic scheduling, multi-user diversity gain, and receiver diversity, before ending the introduction with an overview of the tutorial. In the second part of the lecture, we bring to our focus the problem of opportunistic routing in the multihop wireless network context. In the final part of the tutorial, we embark upon the issue of congestion and throughput optimality by contrasting the opportunistic MDP-based schemes with some back-pressure opportunistic schemes.
