Description of workshop

Opportunistic networks are an emerging networking paradigm where communication between the source and destination occurs on-the-fly and depends on the availability of communication links. Opportunistic communication paradigm heavily benefits from the heterogeneous networking and communication infrastructure that currently exist, e.g., mobile networks, P2P networks, with the supporting technologies in data management and system interoperability.

Motivated by further examining recent advances in this field and promoting the optimization of the existing methodologies and/or approaches, as well as presenting efficient high performance techniques for extending the survivability of such systems, both in terms of performance and reliability, we are interested in organizing this workshop with the following primary objectives:

§ Explore new and innovative ideas and improvements of opportunistic networks that can affect the overall performance of the system;

§ Explore the impact of wireless mobility and resource management in order to offer high performance and resource availability in today’s computing systems.

The workshop also aims at presenting state-of-the-art research and future trends in mobile and heterogeneous opportunistic networking and applications, combining the mobile communication, mobility and resource management field, and in a research pathway in order to present the various concepts that contribute to enable high performance computing.

Workshop details

Original research contributions in all areas of High performance Mobile Opportunistic Systems and/or applications are welcome.

Particularly the papers aim to present work in the following topical areas:

• Failure-aware resource management for high-availability computing in opportunistic systems
