MCPT-2015 The Third International Workshop on Mobile Computing Platforms and Technologies

February 8-13, 2015, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

part of Eurocast 2015

Mobile platforms and technologies surround us throughout our everyday lives; billions of mobile phones and trillions of embedded mobile systems interact with each other and their users. The resulting scientific challenges are inherently interdisciplinary and encompass a multitude of specific fields, including systems design, sensors and perception, interaction techniques, networking and protocols, security and privacy, and low-level hardware design.

MCPT-2015, the Third International Workshop on Mobile Computing Platforms and Technologies, aimed to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry to present novel ideas and developments in mobile computing and discuss their application to current and future platforms. With a focus on scientific novelty, MCPT-2015 provided a forum to discuss technology and platform issues with a specific focus on mobile aspects. The workshop was organised by Clemens Holzmann (Mint Research Group, University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria) and René Mayrhofer from the Johannes Kepler University Linz.

Specific topics of interest include:

  • Frameworks, toolkits, and middleware for mobile systems
  • Platforms for end user development
  • Personalization of mobile devices
  • Context and location awareness
  • Computational perception and environmental sensing
  • Augmented reality and mobile multi-modal interaction
  • Mobile and spatial interaction techniques
  • Ad-hoc and spontaneous networking
  • Security and privacy issues specific to mobile computing
  • Mobile trust and reputation systems
  • Mobility in wearable computing
  • Mobile hardware and communication technology
  • Techniques for power management on mobile systems
  • Evaluation and comparative reviews of mobile platforms
