Proceedings of the fifth international workshop on Foundations of mobile computing Academic Article uri icon


  • It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 5th ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS International Workshop on Foundations of Mobile Computing (DIALM-POMC). This year's workshop continues its tradition of being the premier forum for presentation of research results and experience reports on leading edge issues of in both the design and analysis of discrete and distributed algorithms and the system modeling in the context of mobile, wireless, ad-hoc, and sensor networks. DIALM-POMC gives researchers and practitioners a unique opportunity to share their perspectives with others interested in mobile computing, discrete and distributed algorithms. The call for papers attracted 35 submissions from Asia, Canada, Europe, and the United States. The program committee accepted 10 papers that cover a variety of topics, scheduling and topology control in wireless networks, broadcasting, medium access control and random walks in sensor networks. In addition, the program includes a keynote speech by Andrzej Pelc on "Algorithmic Aspects of Radio Communication" as well as 3 invited talks by Roger Wattenhofer on "Theory for Sensor Networks: What Is It Good For?", Shlomi Dolev on "Self-Stabilizing and Self-Organizing Mobile Networks" and Alessandro Panconesi on "Gossiping (via mobile?) in Social Networks". We hope that these proceedings will serve as a valuable reference for mobile computing researchers and developers.
