13th IEEE Workshop on
Managing Ubiquitous Communications and Services (MUCS 2016)
Ubiquitous communications and related services have experienced a rapid increase in interest and development over the past decade and led into the race into the Internet of Things. As the pace of this growth continues to accelerate, both everyday users and service providers face significant management challenges - ranging from the heterogeneous networks over which these services must operate to the need for semantic interoperability of services, even of those developed by different providers.
MUCS 2016 will provide a venue for researchers and practitioners to present advances in managing these communications and services as well as interdisciplinary issues, and to atempt to derive a path for addressing emerging challenges in the near and long terms.
Since 2003, the MUCS workshop has provided a very successful forum for researchers and practitioners to explore the theoretical, technological, and organizational challenges, and to present advances in management techniques and technologies, for pervasive computing and smart space applications.
The workshop provides a single-track scientific program containing a blend of keynote presentations from leaders in research in this area, peer-reviewed papers, and a small selection of invited presentations. The goal of the workshop is to investigate the state of the art in managing pervasive/smart space applications from a broad perspective.
