The evolution of mobile/wireless networking and computing technologies and their key role in future Internet and Cloud based scenarios offer an increasing wealth of opportunities for distributing a huge variety of contents to mobile users, enabling dissemination of professional and specialized content as well as user-generated content. Wireless Networks and Mobile Technologies play major role as we witness the convergence of Big Data, Clouds, and HPC systems. As a part of HPCS conference, MCWN 2018 will target original work focusing on modeling, performance analysis, testbeds, and simulation results in the areas of mobile and wireless networks, mobile computing, applications and systems. MCWN 2018 is aiming to attract a large number of high-quality submissions and stimulate cutting-edge research discussions among many academic researchers/scientists and industrial engineers/leaders from all around the world, especially with the intersection of mobility and future integrated HPC systems.

The Symposium topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

    • Mobility and High Performance Computing Systems

    • Mobile Cloud Computing for High-availability Computing

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to high performance mobile and wireless networks and systems for High Performance Computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwise. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium paper submission site at . Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Conference Policies

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, language, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2018 conference to present the paper at the symposium as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages.


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2018 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.


Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please contact the symposium organizers.
