Call for Chapters
Mobile Computing over Cloud: Technologies, Services, and Applications
Editors: Joel J. P. C. Rodrigues, Kai Lin, and Jaime Lloret


Mobile computing over cloud is a potential technology that uses mobile devices 
in combination with cloud computing. This book wants to take account of 
developments and trends that are taking place in the area of mobile computing 
over cloud.

Providing optimal services for mobile users over cloud do not need a powerful 
configuration since all the data and complicated computing modules can be 
processed in the clouds. Nowadays, many research of this area are likely to 
enter the domain with carrier-cloud services and give new chances for mobile 
network providers. It will also help to advance the mobile cloud in industry 
and corporate settings.


The mission of the book is to be a fundamental source for the advancement of 
knowledge, application, and practice in the interdisciplinary areas of mobile 
network and cloud computing. The book will address innovative concepts and 
critical issues in the emerging field of vehicular wireless network.
The book seeks to show interesting research experiences and applications of 
mobile computing over cloud around the world. It can help to disseminate them. 
The book will be an important way to communicate important concepts of mobile 
computing over cloud.


We invite authors to submit original technical chapters offering novel research 
contributions in any aspect of mobile computing over cloud, covering but not 
limited to the topics of interest listed below:

- Applications of mobile computing over cloud 
- Networks and systems design
- Mobility measurement, modeling, and simulation
- Energy management 
- Physical layer and antenna technologies 
- Protocols for mobile computing over cloud
- Security and privacy 
- Simulation and experimentation of mobile computing over cloud 
- Mobile learning over cloud
- Mobile healthcare over cloud
- Mobile commerce over cloud
- In-network processing and aggregation


Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit 2-3 page proposals 
describing the objectives and approach of each proposed chapter. The final 
deadline for proposals is July 31, 2012, but the editors will begin reviewing 
proposals and providing feedback immediately. 

Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by June 30, 2012 and sent 
chapter guidelines. Full chapters will be due on October 1, 2012. All submitted 
chapters will undergo a double-blind peer review process. Contributors may also 
be invited to serve as reviewers for the project.
