Mobility management has been identified as a key technology in the areas of heterogeneous networks, mobile networks, vehicular networks, multimedia computing, and autonomous computing, as well as in the Future Internet. The development of mobility management in the areas is expected to enable mobility services for users, vehicles, robots, etc. However, many issues in mobility management including location update, handover, identity split, security, and performance analysis have posed various challenges to the academic and industry. The purpose of MobiWorld 2012 is to bring together the academic and industry working on different aspects, exchange ideas, and explore new research directions for addressing the challenges in mobility management. MobiWorld also aims to publish high quality papers which are closely related to various theories and practical applications in mobility management to highlight the state-of-art research.


MobiWorld 2012 seeks original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topic areas:


-  Mobility management architecture for heterogeneous networks

-  Mobility management architecture for wireless networks

-  Mobility management architecture for vehicular networks

-  Mobility management architecture for autonomous computing

-  Mobility management architecture and protocols for the Future Internet

-  Wireless Internet and all-IP integration

-  Mobile computing applications/systems

-  Context-aware mobile services and applications

-  Vertical handover mechanism for mobility management

-  Routing mechanism for mobility management

-  IMS mechanism for mobility management

-  Mobility management in identity/location split architecture

-  Security issues and protocols for mobility management

-  Privacy and trust for mobility management

-  Key management and authentication for mobility management

-  Performance analysis for various mobility management architectures

-  Deployment issue for mobility management

-  Application and service issues for mobility management

-  Mobile commerce technologies and applications

-  Others and emerging new topics

#Author Instruction

Authors are invited to submit original papers: they must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences that have proceedings.


Paper Submission: During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure the pdf file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same list of authors and the paper title, that is, please add all authors in EDAS during the submission process. Failure to comply with this rule, your paper may be withdrawn from the review process. On the other hand, the author list of an accepted paper can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.


All papers should be submitted to GC'12 Workshop - MobiWorld 2012
via EDAS at https://www.edas.info/newPaper.php?c=12429
Please make sure that your paper is indeed submitted to GC'12 Workshop - MobiWorld 2012.

Papers should be written in English with a maximum paper length of five (5) printed pages (10-point font) including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page). You may use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found at http://www.ieee.org/portal/pages/pubs/transactions/stylesheets.html. Alternatively you can follow the sample instructions in template.pdf at http://cms.comsoc.org/SiteGen/Uploads/public/Docs_Globecom_2010/template.pdf. Only PDF files are accepted for paper review.


An accepted paper must be registered before the registration deadline. An accepted paper must be presented at the workshop. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the workshop proceedings and the program.





#Proceedings & Special Issue

All accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE GLOBECOM proceedings and IEEE Xplore and indexed in relevant databases (EI).


Best papers presented at MobiWorld 2012 will be recommended to the following journals:
