Call for Papers: The 6th ACM International Workshop on Mobility
in the Evolving Internet Architecture (MobiArch 2011)

June 28, 2011

Co-located with ACM MobiSys 2011<http://www.sigmobile.org/mobisys/2011/> in Washington, D.C.
Technical Area

With recent advances in technologies for wireless access (e.g., WiFi, 3G, and 4G) and mobile devices (e.g., smartphones, netbooks, and tablets), mobility has become a fundamental characteristic of today's Internet. Yet, basic architectural issues related to mobility such as efficient mobility management, the locator-identifier split, multi-homing, security, and various operational, deployment concerns are still in their early stages of exploration. Moreover, the Internet architecture itself, its end-to-end principles, and business models require rethinking due to the massive penetration of mobility into the Internet. For instance, an appropriate system that allows communicating with a mobile host requires addressing several fundamental issues with the Internet architecture, such as ability to locate the mobile host/service, preserving ongoing communications upon changes of locations, as well as seamless and secure handover management. As another example, the emerging wireless technologies such as those in the 60 GHz and whitespace bands may pose additional challenges since they may introduce design principles different from the packet-switched Internet.

MobiArch 2011 welcomes submissions, from both researchers and practitioners, in exploration of recent advances in architectures, protocols, and experiences with emerging technologies on various mobility issues over the Internet, with an emphasis on wireless infrastructures and mobility patterns for mobility support, new mobility protocols, service discovery, routing and location management, mobile network performance evaluation and modelling, multi-homing, security, architectural impacts and deployment considerations. We encourage submission of early, in-progress work as well as position papers.

The workshop will address all architectural issues and system support for mobility in the Internet, including but not limited to:

  *   Impacts of new wireless technologies/services, networking technologies, and mobility patterns on Internet architecture.
  *   Architectures and protocols for mobility support in the Internet, ranging from approaches in the link, network, and transport layers, to the application layer and cross-layer design.
  *   Architectures and protocols for service partitioning, code offloading, and data center management to support mobile devices in the compute cloud.
  *   Location management, robustness, routing, locator/identifier split, multi-homing and load sharing issues.
  *   Security, dependability, and privacy issues in mobility networks, and their impacts on Internet architecture.
  *   Architectures and mechanisms for wireless/mobile connectivity in remote areas and developing countries.
  *   Performance issues with mobility in the Internet.
  *   QoS and middlebox issues in mobility networks and impacts on Internet architecture.
  *   Economic and deployment issues of mobility solutions (infrastructure and devices).
  *   Impact of social aspects on mobility architectures, mobile application and protocol design.

Paper format and submission instructions

Submitted papers must be no more than 6 pages long, with no characters in smaller than 10 point fonts.  Paper submission will be handled via HotCRP<http://mobiarch11.cs.ucl.ac.uk/hotcrp>.  Papers will be reviewed single-blind.
