Mobile phones and Internet of Things (IoT) devices are the top two largest categories of connected devices in 2018. With more than 15% compound annual growth rate, they are considered as one of today's hottest trends in both academia and industry. Both Mobile phones and IoT devices integrates different major technologies such as cloud services, big data, cloud computing, and wireless networking (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 5G, ...) in one platform that services the end users. According to Ericsson, there will be a total of approximately 28B connected devices worldwide by 2021 fairly distributed between Mobile phones and IoT devices. Despite this rapid growth, many issues at the intersection of Mobile computing and IoT are still challenging and need to be addressed. These challenges are related to the underlying communication networks, interaction with cloud services, security, the required Quality of Service, the availability of services, integration with next generation Internet technologies, and many others.
The 2nd International Workshop on Architectures for Future Mobile Computing and Internet of Things (FMCIoT 2019) Workshop will be held in conjunction with The 12 th IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings-2019). The FMCIoT 2019 Workshop aims at soliciting original ideas on the broad area of Mobile and IoT architectures including challenges and opportunities, concepts and applications and future trends that addresses the aforementioned challenges. The workshop aims to facilitate discussions among academics and industry to bridge Mobile Computing and IoT practitioners and make positive contributions to the field. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished manuscripts. Submitted papers should be in accordance with IEEE format, and will be reviewed by at least two expert reviewers in terms of relevance, originality, contribution, correctness, and presentation. All papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference submission website (EDAS) in word or PDF format at https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=25429&track=93456 . The materials presented in the papers should not be published or under submission elsewhere. Each paper is limited to 8 pages (or 10 pages with overlength charge) including figures and references using the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, font size 10). You can access the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines from the following link: http://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/. Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings can be found at https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI) and IEEE Xplore. At least one of the authors of any accepted paper must register and present the paper.
