Mobile handhelds are the computing and communications devices that will pervade the lives of users worldwide, much more than desktop-based systems.  Mobile handhelds come in many forms, including traditional cellular phones, smart phones, music players, electronic book readers, and watch computers. In recent years, the use of mobile handhelds has grown tremendously, as has the functionality for programmers. This platform will likely change the computing and communications landscape in radical ways in the years to come.  With the increasing capabilities of these devices come increasing challenges spanning a wide range of domains:  in the design of effective networking mechanisms, in application design, in user interface design, in energy efficiency, and in management of these devices.

The goal of the MobiHeld workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to investigate challenges in designing and utilizing this platform for the Internet of tomorrow.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following (all of which are in the context of mobile handhelds):

  • Wireless protocols and services, especially dealing with limited power, limited bandwidth, and unpredictable connectivity of mobile handhelds
  • Design, implementation, and evaluation of services for mobile handhelds
  • Security, privacy, and trust for mobile handhelds
  • New applications for mobile handhelds
  • Mobile handheld management
  • Virtualized services
  • Cloud-based services
  • Emerging applications, including media applications
  • Social networking using mobile handhelds
  • User interface issues
  • Operating systems and middleware support
  • Multi-radio mobile handhelds
  • Platforms and testbeds for experimenting with mobile handhelds
  • Mobile services in emerging regions
