The 13th International Conference on Mobile Computing and Ubiquitous Networking (ICMU2021)

Tokyo, Japan November 17-19th, 2021


Scope and Aim

ICMU2021 – The Thirteenth International Conference on Mobile Computing and Ubiquitous Networking – focuses on the active area of research and development in mobile communications, applications, algorithms, and systems as well as ubiquitous services and computing. The special focus of ICMU includes advancing technologies for next-generation distributed and ubiquitous computing where human, networked sensors, connected devices, and environments are involved. Examples of such technologies are IoT, human-centric sensing, energy-efficient mobile systems, social-networking, machine-to-machine communications, mobile cloud computing, and mobile social P2P. Not only these issues but also fundamental algorithms and theory for mobile system privacy, security, reliability, and robustness are also topics of interest. Authors are invited to submit their research contributions addressing the topics in mobile and pervasive computing and ubiquitous networking.

The topics include, but are not limited to:


Miraikan - The National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, 2-3-6 Aomi, Koto-ku, Tokyo, Japan
