in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2017

Atlanta, GA, USA, May 1, 2017 



(1) Submission Deadline is finally extended to January 24th, 2017 
(2) Submission is now available at
(3) The worksho program is now available here.



Mobility management has been identified as a key technology in the areas of heterogeneous networks, mobile networks, vehicular networks, multimedia computing, and autonomous computing, as well as in the Future Internet. The development of mobility management in the areas is expected to enable mobility services for users, vehicles, robots, etc. However, many issues in mobility management including location update, handover, identity split, security, and performance analysis have posed various challenges to the academic and industry. The purpose of MobiWorld 2017 is to bring together the academic and industry working on different aspects, exchange ideas, and explore new research directions for addressing the challenges in mobility management. MobiWorld 2017 also aims to publish high quality papers which are closely related to various theories and practical applications in mobility management to highlight the state-of-art research.


MobiWorld 2017 seeks original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topic areas:
- Mobility management architecture for heterogeneous networks
- Mobility management architecture for wireless networks
- Mobility management architecture for vehicular networks
- Mobility management architecture for autonomous computing
- Mobility management architecture and protocols for the Future Internet
- Wireless Internet and all-IP integration
