Call for papers

Pervasive high speed wireless networks, powerful mobile devices, and scalable cloud computing resources has led to the rise of a new area typically known as mobile cloud computing (MCC). A mobile cloud computing for healthcare (MCCH) system is a specific MCC system that focuses on healthcare and wellness applications. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for scientists, researchers, and practitioners working in the areas of MCC in healthcare to share and exchange ideas, experiences, and lessons leant.

Note that submissions do not need to incorporate all three areas (mobile, cloud, wireless), but must be related to healthcare.

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • MCCH prototype systems
  • Programming models for MCCH applications
  • Security and privacy for regulatory compliance and/or novel threats to MCCH applications
  • Algorithmic foundations for MCCH applications
  • Algorithms and techniques to provide and validate quality of service (QoS) for MCCH applications
  • Fault tolerant, resilient systems, algorithms, and protocol designs for MCCH applications
  • Coexistence of heterogeneous systems (e.g. wireless standards, hardware, etc) in MCCH systems
  • Real world MCCH application deployment experiences and lessons
  • Data management, cleaning, and mining of MCCH generated data streams
  • Health information technology (HIT) and MCCH

Paper submission guidelines

Papers must adhere to the IEEE Proceedings Format available for LaTex and Word. Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file, formatted for 8.5x11 paper. The page limit is no more than 6 pages. Please consult the workshop webpage at


for submission details.
