Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since the introduction of world’s first consumer laptop in the 1980s, mobile computing has emerged as a hot topic in the information technology domain due to the noteworthy advantages it brings with respect to connectivity, computing, and mobility. With the advent of next-generation wireless systems, mobile computing has been proven to make significant contributions in the fields of emergency services, educational systems, healthcare, global positioning systems, and a lot more, since data can be transmitted and accessed by users anytime and anywhere via devices that do not require a physical link. Even though recent advances in the critical aspects of mobile computing such as communication, portability, and mobility are promising, it is also evident that more practical solutions are required to deal with the security facets so that the same can be accommodated well with the current technology trends. This Special Issue welcomes state-of-the-art and high-quality research works describing practical and theoretical solutions on mobile computing, wireless networks, and security.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Secure mobile computing and wireless network architectures and services;
  • Security, privacy, and trustworthiness in wireless and mobile computing systems;
  • Security-based energy aware wireless and mobile computing systems;
  • Algorithm or protocol design for secure computing systems;
  • Security applications of wireless networks and mobile computing;
  • Physical and pragmatic challenges of secure wireless and mobile computing systems;
  • Resource discovery, portability, and migration in secure mobile computing systems.
