5th ERCIM Workshop on eMobility

June 14, 2011 - Vilanova i la Geltrú, Catalonia, Spain
in conjunction with WWIC 2011


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
  • 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
  • Vehicular and car-to-car communication
  • Social networks for eMobility
  • Green mobile ICT

Authors are encouraged to submit papers describing original, previously unpublished, results, not currently under review by another conference or journal, addressing original research.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 be formatted according to the Springer LNCS formatting standard, available at the Springer website. Technical contributions can be submitted as full, short, and abstract papers with 12, 6, or 1-2 pages respectively.


Paper submissions should be made electronically via EDAS (details to follow soon).


The ERCIM eMobility Workshop on June 14, 2011, is co-located with the WWIC 2011 conference which will take place from June 15 to 17 in Vilanova i la Geltrú, Catalonia, Spain.


  • Paper submission: April 19, 2011 April 26, 2011
  • Author notification: May 10, 2011
  • Camera-ready and registration: May 17, 2011
