Workshop on Mobility in the Evolving Internet
to be held in conjunction with ICNP 2019,
Chicago, Illinois, USA, October 7, 2019
The program committee is delighted to invite you to the 14th Workshop on Mobility in the Evolving Internet Architecture (MobiArch) 2019. The workshop will be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA, October 7, 2019. MobiArch is co-located with IEEE ICNP 2019.
Aim and Scope
Recent years have witnessed not only mobile devices surpassing stationary Internet hosts in numbers, but also exponential growth of mobile data traffic due to ubiquitous penetration of portable devices, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications, user-generated content sharing, and user-centric applications such as augmented/virtual reality. In the meantime, mobile devices continue to increase in their computing power, as well as the network infrastructure is in the process of transforming from a hardware-dominated landscape to an increasingly virtualized and software-defined system with computing moving to the cloud, edge, and the fog to alleviate the processing load on the mobile devices. The increasing ability to collect and process large amounts of data pertaining to network, devices, and users is posing new challenges to network design, in which, for example, resources are provisioned in either centralized global data centers or local servers close to the network edge, or both interacting with one another. As these trends continue, a reexamination is urgently required for the architecture of the mobile-centric Internet. Particularly, there is a need to deal with new opportunities and challenges as a result of the support of massive amounts of shared contents and processing functionality, the availability of software defined architectures and possibly dynamic/mobile virtualized network functions, the computational/storage support from both the cloud and edge/fog computing, and the emerging spectrum access techniques.
MobiArch 2019 welcomes submissions from both researchers and practitioners from academia and industry that explore challenges and advances in architectures, algorithms, protocols, middleware, and technologies in the current Internet or in the future clean-slate Internet. The workshop has specific focus on all topics that target to support mobility, with an emphasis on new network design for high performance mobile applications and services, efficient support of mobile contents, software-defined architectures, data-driven mobile network management, as well as cloud-/edge-/fog-aware architecture and services. In addition, we encourage work-in-progress and position papers that describe highly original ideas, present new directions, or have the potential to generate insightful provocative discussion at the workshop.
