The 9th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Cloud Computing, Services, and Engineering (IEEE Mobile Cloud 2021)

August 23-26, 2021

Online, Worldwide

Call For Papers

The integration of mobile computing, edge, and cloud services enables new applications that provide resources and services on an intelligent basis, process big data collected from mobile sensors, connected vehicles, and support the Internet of things (IoT) with massive edge and cloud-based backend. 5G technology will be a key enabler of this integration. Such mobile applications will have tremendous impacts on many aspects of our life, including transportation/V2X, e-commerce, healthcare, smart homes and smart cities, social interaction, and many more.

Mobile Cloud provides a platform for researchers from academia and industry to share their latest research ideas and results, experimental activities, and the emerging industry technologies on mobile cloud computing, services, and engineering. Papers will be judged based on originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness.
