WS01: Smart and Green Communications & Networks - fullday

Date: Wednesday, 15 August • Time: 8:30 – 17:30 • Room: 2

Organizing Commitee:

  • Shin‑Ming Cheng (National Taiwan University, Taiwan,
  • Bian Sen (China Mobile Green Innovation Center, China)
  • Energy consumption and electromagnetic pollution are societal and economic challenges of prime importance that developed countries have to tackle. The evolution of future communication infrastructures will have to take into consideration both the aforementioned factors. The increasing demand for bandwidth-hungry multimedia and internet-related wireless devices and services has spurred the need towards maximal exploitation of spectral resources. Since 2006, data traffic on wireless networks has grown by approximately 400% and is expected to continue to increase rapidly in the coming years. The widespread use of complex, spectrum efficient techniques to support such high data volumes, the demand for higher data rates and the ever-increasing number of wireless users translate to rapidly rising power consumption. Currently consuming 3% of the energy and causing 2% of the CO2 emissions globally, the Information & Communication Technology (ICT) industries are facing an increase in associated energy consumption of 16-20% per year. Furthermore, the energy costs for mobile operators can be as high as half of their annual operating budgets. The foregoing considerations highlight the urgent need for designing smart and green communications and networks.

WS02: Workshop on Mobile Cloud Computing - halfday

Date: Wednesday, 15 August • Time: 8:30 – 12:00 • Room: 1B

General Chair:
  • Ivan Stojmenovic (University of Ottawa)
TPC Chairs:
  • Yong Cui (Tsinghua University)
  • Jiangchuan Liu (Simon Fraser University)
Publicity Chairs:
  • Cheng Wang (University of Ottawa)
  • Chengchen Hu (Xi’an Jiaotong University)
  • In the past few years, mobile devices and wireless communication technologies have developed rapidly. With the explosion of mobile applications and user demands, some characteristics of mobile devices such as limited resources (e.g., computation and storage capacity, battery power, etc.) significantly impede the improvement of QoS. Mobile Cloud Computing (MobiCC) is born to tackle these limitations by integrating cloud computing into the mobile environment. It enables users to elastically utilize resources in an on-demand fashion, takes full advantages of cloud computing, and brings new types of services and facilities to users by providing ubiquitous service access. Several organizations have predicted that cloud computing will completely transform the way in which mobile applications and services are acquired, developed and used.
  • However, there are still many obstacles for MobiCC, including service availability, mobility management, security, privacy, energy efficiency,
    etc. These problems must be carefully addressed before mobile could become the next big thing.

Keynote Speech:
  • Speaker #1: Mobile Cloud and Green Computing
    • Ivan Stojmenovic, IEEE Fellow, Professor of University of Ottawa
    • Abstract: Mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops, embedded boards, robots) can serve as ‘dumb’ terminals for cloud computing services over intelligent network. Mobile cloud has emerged as a new cloud computing platform that ‘puts cloud into a pocket’. Important issues include optimizing the scheduling and transport schemes, access management, and application optimization, for mobile devices to achieve energy saving. This talk will first introduce the development of mobile cloud computing and describe some applications involving multimedia, vision/recognition, graphics, gaming, text processing. Next, it will present the transmission, computation, and sensing challenges of green computing in mobile cloud. It will also discuss the possible solutions from various perspectives. Energy savings for task outsourcing and location based services will be discussed in detail. ‘Crowd computing’ combines mobile devices and social interactions to achieve large-scale distributed computation. Examples include task farming, participatory and opportunistic crowd-sourced sensing. One particular emerging concept is the ‘vehicular crowd’. For example, traffic lights in a congested area could be rescheduled by running the rescheduling code (controlled by municipality) on the collective computational platform provided by the cars.
