As mobile computing is more and more widespread, mobility support for Internet devices becomes very important. Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) is a promising technology that handles the mobility management and provides the seamless mobile communications. It is expected that MIPv6, as a standard for mobile communication, will open the Mobile Internet Age. In MIPv6, it has been observed that mobility for mobile devices can be more efficiently handled if mobility management is broken down into localized mobility management and global mobility management. Therefore, host-based approaches such as Fast-Handovers for MIPv6 (FMIPv6) and Hierarchical MIPv6 (HMIPv6) have been proposed for localized mobility management. In addition, Proxy MIPv6 (PMIPv6) has been presented for the network-based localized mobility management (NETLMM), which does not require mobile devices to be involved in the signaling for mobility management. This workshop will focus on the challenges and solutions for MIPv6 with an emphasis on PMIPv6 and NETLMM, which have recently gained considerable attention.
The MobiWorld workshop will provide an opportunity for academic and industry professionals to discuss the latest issues and progress in the area of MIPv6 and NETLMM. In addition, the workshop will publish high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in MIPv6 and NETLMM. Furthermore, we expect that the workshop and its publications will be a trigger for further related research and technology improvements in this important subject.
