ICMP Workshop

International Workshop on Mobile Edge Computing and Personal Networks (ICMP 2019)

Chair of the workshop: Prof. Chien-Liang Chen (Overseas Chinese University)

In the digitized and smart network era, Personal networks occupy an indispensable place for connecting people. To mitigate the personal network management bottleneck, Mobile Edge Computing is evolving as a promising technology to extend the network processing form a centralized cloud architecture to distributed edge networks and devices which remains close to the personal devices. Mobile Edge Computing provides a smart platform for personal network applications with a reduced latency and enhanced Quality of Service. This workshop will focus on Personal networks and Mobile edge computing and its applications.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Personal network management techniques – Edge communication protocol design for personal networks
– Network scheduling algorithms – Virtual network protocols
– Heterogeneous data modeling techniques – Edge data analytics and enhancements
– Personal network security in distributed edge clouds – Personal network virtualization techniques
– Personal network connectivity enhancements using edge devices – Authentic and consistent personal network connections
– Network reliability assessment techniques – Case studies and innovative applications


The workshop intends to attract research community from around the world; each submission will be reviewed by at least three independent experts.

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ConfyPlus system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section). Papers should be in English. Regular papers should be no more than 20 pages LNCS format.

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.

Paper review will be double-blind to avoid any potential bias. Previously published work may not be submitted, nor may the work be concurrently submitted to any other conference or journal. Such papers will be rejected without review. The paper must start with a title, an abstract, and keywords.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the work.
