Topic of the special issue

Mobile systems technologies encompass a range of solutions spanning from the bare hardware/firmware up to the design of applications fully aware of the requirements and constraints of a “mobile” world.

Examples of systems belonging to this applicative area are smartphones, tablets, phablets, smartwatches, mobile and wearable systems (including medical ones). The enabling technologies, in addition to low power processing units, are those related to the emerging memory technologies, the efficient implementation of wireless protocols and novel design strategies that consider in a joint perspective performance, energy, dependability, security and functionalities.

This special issue is soliciting submissions on the following main topics, although any other contribution in the field of “Mobile Systems” is similarly welcome:

  • Storage and memory systems: trends and solution tailored for a mobile world
  • Near zero computing and power aware mobile applications
  • Designing and tuning Hw and Sw for mobile systems
  • Multi-many cores for the new generation of mobile devices
  • Graphic processing and QoS management
  • Security, privacy and dependability in mobile systems
  • Cooperative mobile systems
  • System software for mobile devices
  • Integration of mobile technologies and IoT
  • Case studies and design experiences

Submission procedure

All submitted papers must follow the guidelines of the journal, see for more information

The article length is expected to be in the range of 6-12 pages.

If the paper is an extended journal version of a conference paper, at least 30% of new text is required and the source paper must be properly referenced.
