1st ERCIM Workshop on eMobility

May 21, 2007 - Coimbra, Portugal
in conjunction with WWIC 2007


Progress in computing and (wireless) communication technologies allow mobile users to permanently communicate with other persons or to use services and applications that might even have been designed for mobile users. Mobile Applications and services require technical solutions on various levels such as wireless network technologies, communication architectures and protocols supporting mobility of users and devices, middleware to support security and flexibility, as well as applications that are adaptive and context sensitive, although or because mobile devices have usually limited resources. The target of the workshop is to discuss issues and problems related to future applications and services based on mobile and wireless technologies. This multi-disciplinary workshop aims to bring together researchers, who are active in these different research areas.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Future mobile applications, e.g. medical applications, multimedia, mobile learning, telematics
  • Mobile application support such as coding, content distribution and adaptation
  • User interfaces of mobile devices and applications
  • Ubiquitous, pervasive, and context-aware computing and communications
  • Location-based services
  • Mobile Peer-to-Peer
  • Security including trust and authentication
  • Runtime adaptation
  • Software development for mobile devices
  • Wireless access networks
  • Mobile ad-hoc and wireless mesh networks
  • Sensor networks
  • Wireless experimentation and test networks
  • Simulation methods and tools for wireless wireless networks
  • Mobility management, roaming, and handover support
  • Quality-of-Service and traffic engineering
  • Transport protocols and congestion control in wireless networks
  • Cross-layer protocol design
  • Energy-efficient protocol mechanisms
  • User interaction for mobile devices

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original, previously unpublished, results, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing original research. All papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings (with ISBN number). Submitted papers should have no more than 12 pages, according to the Springer LNCS formatting standard, available at the Springer website.


Paper submissions should be made electronically via webchairing.


The ERCIM eMobility Workshop on May 21, 2007, is part of a series of attractive co-located events that will take place in Coimbra during the same week.

The WEIRD workshop and the 9th COST 290 meeting will be held on May 22. WWIC 2007 will take place from May 23 to 25.


  • Paper submission: March 15, 2007 March 19, 2007
  • Author Notification: April 9, 2007
  • Camera-Ready: April 23, 2007
  • Registration: April 23, 2007


Since the eMobility workshop is colocated with the WWIC 2007 please use the general registration form for the conference. You will find the registration form and further information on the WWIC page.


The best workshop papers will be proposed for a special issue of the "Journal of Internet Engineering".
