Call for Papers: Advances in Mobile, Edge and Cloud Computing


Emerging mobile applications exhibit heterogeneous requirements on the computing power, communication bandwidth, security and privacy. Given the restriction on the computing capability on battery-operated mobile devices, a variety of offloading techniques have been designed to leverage the abundant computing resources available on cloud servers. Mobile Cloud Computing provides enormous computing and storage resources for mobile applications that can tolerate a certain level of network delay, while Mobile Edge Computing offers an intelligent platform to enhance mobile devices' capabilities and improve the Quality of Service of mobile applications. Both Mobile Cloud Computing and Mobile Edge Computing are key enabling paradigms for emerging mobile applications in Internet of Things (IoT), smart grids, robotics, crowd sensing, etc. New research challenges arise due to the heterogeneity of computing and network resources across the mobile devices, edge servers, and remote data centers. This special issue aims to address the challenges in resource planning and management, scheduling, networking, security and privacy in mobile edge and cloud computing.
