The 2012 International Workshop on Mobile Cloud Computing
Technologies and Applications (MCCTA-2012)
Melbourne, Australia, September 26-28, 2012
The 2012 International Workshop on Mobile Cloud Computing Technologies and Applications (MCCTA-2012) is a major forum for scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to present the latest research, results, ideas, developments and applications in all areas of mobile cloud computing technologies and applications. Recent advances in wireless telecommunications and mobile cloud computing have dramatically changed the modern business environment and daily human life. The concept of mobile cloud computing provides a brand new opportunity for the development of mobile communication technologies and applications since it allows the mobile devices to maintain a very thin layer for user applications and shift the computation and processing overhead to the virtual environment.
Mobile cloud computing based on wireless communication will completely transform the way mobile and technologies and applications are being developed, acquired, and used. However, mobile cloud computing is also facing many challenges such as the dependency on continuous network connections, data sharing applications and collaboration, and security. These problems must be carefully investigated before mobile cloud computing can become the next big thing.
The mobile and wireless technologies market is about to change radically, from suppliers' standpoint and from the consumer access standpoint due to the emergence of widgets,
the most compelling of mobile cloud applications.
Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. Proceedings of the MCCTA-2012 will be published by Conference Publishing Service. Presented papers at MCCTA-2012 will be considered for publication in several Special Issues in International Journals.
