International Workshop on Mobile Computing and Clouds

(MobiCloud 2010)

In Conjunction with MobiCASE 2010

October 28, 2010 - Biltmore Hotel & Suites, Santa Clara, CA, USA



Cloud computing is rapidly becoming a new computing paradigm that fundamentally alters the landscape of computing services. The cloud computing model offers great opportunities for mobile computing and service industry, allowing mobile devices and services to leverage the dynamic and elastic resources offered by the clouds. Cloud based services such as IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service), and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) are ideally suited for mobile devices and services where performance, affordability, scalability, availability, and elasticity are critical metrics. Many potential uses have been proposed to integrate this powerful paradigm into mobile devices and services.
