Call for Papers

The 3rd International Workshop on Mobile Distributed Computing (MDC'05)

In conjunction with 
  the 25th Int'l Conf. on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS'05), 
  Columbus, Ohio, USA, June 5-10, 2005.

With the advance in mobile wireless communication technology, research 
in distributed computing is beginning to extend its scope to address 
problems relevant to mobile environments.  Mobile distributed computing 
has emerged as a discipline of distributed systems research and practice 
toward support for mobility. It is concerned with creating solutions 
using mobile communication networks and mobile computing devices to 
enable the sharing of distributed resources/services and to facilitate 
remote collaborations while people work away from the fixed, wired facilities.

MDC'05 is the third in series.  Following the success of the first 
two workshops MDC'03 in Rhode Island, USA and MDC'04 in Tokyo, Japan, 
MDC'05 provides a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and 
industry to exchange and discuss their experiences, new ideas, and 
research results about all aspects of mobile distributed computing. 

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
 - Distributed algorithms for communication, synchronization and 
   coordination in mobile computing environments
 - Networking protocols for mobile distributed computing
 - Mobile codes and agents 
 - Environments, middleware and tool support for mobile distributed computing
 - Fault tolerance and security in mobile distributed environments
 - Location-based services and applications
 - Mobile cluster computing / Mobile Peer-to-Peer computing
 - Resource/service sharing and management in mobile distributed environments
 - Mobile distributed transactions
 - Distributed applications in mobile environments
 - Security in mobile distributed systems

Paper Submission:
  MDC 2005 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Papers must
be written in English and should not exceed 6 pages in IEEE proceedings style.
Authors should shubmit a Postscript (level 2) or PDF file that will print
on a Postscript printer. Electronic submission through the submission website
is strongly encouraged. Hard copies will be accepted only if electrnoic 
submission is not possible. Submission implies the willingness of at least
one of the authors to register and present the paper. Accepted papers will be
