Management Issues and Challenges in Mobile Computing
May 14, 2005
(Last updated: January 12, 2005)
This workshop is in conjunction with the 9th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on INtegrated Network Management (http://www.ieee-im.org/) to be held in Nice, France on May 14, 2005.
We are seeing an increased demand for mobilility which is seen as a way to enhance the reach of networked services e.g., allowing mobile users to connect to an application, enhance networked applications e.g., using the user's location with a resource discovery protocol to discover the "nearest" service with respect to the user's location, and develop new applications e.g., using mobile ad-hoc networks to exchange information between emergency teams in disaster recovery. Providing a management infrastructure in an environment where increasingly the computing environments incorporate wireless and wired components such that the distinctions are fuzzy and that provides information not only "anytime anywhere" but also "all the time everywhere" in a timely and seamless fashion presents many challenging research problems.
The goal of this workshop is to gather people with different backgrounds to analyze and discuss challenges and possible solutions in providing a management infrastructures for mobile computing environments. Areas of interest include location management, Quality of Service (QoS) management, security management, management of of handoffs among content providers, and managing adaptive offloading.
Topics of interest to this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:
The structure of this workshop will encourage discussions and
