MobiArch 2006

First ACM/IEEE International Workshop on Mobility in the Evolving Internet Architecture

Dec 1, 2006 – San Francisco, California, USA

Technically sponsored by IEEE Communications Society
n-cooperation with ACM SIGCOMM and SIGMOBILE

December 1, 2006
Fairmont Hotel San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

To be held in conjunction with
The 49th Annual IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference (GLOBECOM 2006)

Workshop Overview

With the recent development of technologies in wireless access and mobile devices, terminal and network mobility have become an indispensable component of today's Internet vision, and this is likely to continue in the near future, while affecting the way of the whole Internet architecture design. Yet, issues like efficient mobility management and optimizations, locator-identifier split, multi-homing, security and related operational/deployment concerns are still in their early stages of development. Moreover, the Internet architecture, its end-to-end principles and business models will require rethinking due to the massive penetration of mobility into the Internet.

The MobiArch'06 workshop solicits papers, both from researchers and practitioners, dealing with architectures, protocols, and experiences with emerging technologies on mobility support in the Internet, with an emphasis on new mobility protocols, mobility and location management, mobile network performance, multi-homing, security, architectural impacts and deployment considerations.

The workshop will include presentations and discussions of accepted technical papers, as well as invited talks and a panel session.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be original work with no substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or conference with proceedings. Submissions could be either a short position paper or a full research paper, and should include in the first page names and contact information of the authors.

The following style files and templates are available for preparing the paper.

LaTeX template file (tex and pdf) with detailed instructions for paper formatting (IEEE conferences in general)

[ LaTex template files ]

LaTeX style file "IEEEtrans.cls"

[ IEEEtran.cls ]

Word 97/2000 template/sample file (doc and pdf) with detailed instructions for paper formatting

[ MS Word ] [ PDF]

Please format your paper according to the instructions given above. Double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the A4 size paper layout (210 x 297mm).

Manuscripts must be provided in PDF or Postscript format and submitted online via the EDAS system MobiArch'06 entry. You need to login the system before you can submit your manuscript. If you do not have an account in EDAS yet, please register a new one.

Papers due: submissions must be received by midnight GMT, 24 July 2006 (extended deadline) August 7, 2006 (Confirm your GMT time zone). Authors will receive a receipt confirmation by the EDAS system and can update it at any time before the deadline. Although paper registration before the deadline is possible, we kindly request potential authors to register your papers as soon as possible, better no later than July 31, 2006.



The selection process will involve peer reviews and reviews by program committee members. The papers will be selected for the workshop based upon their originality and relevance to the field of mobility support in the evolving Internet architecture.
