CALL FOR PAPERS

Aims and Scope

The First International Workshop on Advanced Topics in Mobile Computing for Emergency Management: Communication and Computing Platforms (MCEM 2009) will be held in conjunction with IWCMC 2009. The "International Workshop on Advanced Topics in Mobile Computing for Emergency Management: Communication and Computing Platforms (MCEM 2009)" provides a forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry and government to present their latest research findings in Computer and communication technologies with a particular attention to Emergency Management.

In this workshop, we explore fundamental questions regarding the modern approach to emergency management, taking into accounts the advantages of modern elaboration architectures. In particular the joint approach of grid computing and heterogeneous networking represent one of the most interesting approaches for managing emergency situations.

Areas of Interest

The areas of interest for First International Workshop on Advanced Topics in Mobile Computing for Emergency Management: Communication and Computing Platforms (MCEM 2009) include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Wireless communication for emergency management
- Communication infrastructure
- Heterogeneous networking
- Resource allocations in wireless broadband area networks
- Cognitive radio
- Mobile grids
- Programming models and environments
- Application development methodologies and tools
- Context-Awareness
- Self-awareness (QoS and adaptivity)
- Adaptivity in Computations and Communications
- Integration of communication and computing
- Demo and field trials

The purpose of this workshop is to stimulate the study of joint approaches to computing and communication for managing complex situations with a particular focus on emergency management.
