IEEE International Conference on Mobile Cloud Computing (MobileCloud 2020)

IEEE International Conference on Mobile Cloud Computing (MobileCloud 2020)

The integration of mobile computing, edge and cloud services enables new applications that provide resources and services on an intelligent basis, process big data collected from mobile sensors, connected vehicles and support Internet of things (IoT) with massive edge and cloud-based backend. 5G technology will be a key enabler of this integration. Such mobile applications will have tremendous impacts on many aspects of our life, including transportation/V2X, e-commerce, healthcare, smart homes and smart cities, social interaction, and many more.
