*The Fourth IEEE International Workshop on Mobile Cloud Computing systems,
Management, and Security (MCSMS-2018)  *


*in conjunction with*

*The Fifth International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems,
Management and Security (IoTSMS 2018)*

* Valencia, Spain. October 15-18, 2018*

With a Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) market value of US$9.5 billion in 2014
and with more than 1 trillion cloud-ready devices in the next four years,
MCC is considered as one of today's hottest new technologies in both
academia and industry. MCC integrates different major technologies such as
smart devices technologies (phones, tablets, watches, …etc), cloud
services, big data, and cloud computing in one platform that services the
end users. Despite the rapid growth of MCC, many issues are still
challenging and need to be addressed. These challenges are related to the
underlying networks, cloud services, security, the required Quality of
Service, the availability of services, the needed user data management, and
many others. The International Workshop on Mobile Cloud Computing systems,
Management, and Security (MCSMS) is introduced as a forum for scientists,
researchers, students, and practitioners to present their latest research
results, ideas, and developments in the area of Mobile Cloud Computing that
addresses the aforementioned challenges. MCSMS 2018 workshop aims to
investigate the opportunities and requirements for Mobile Cloud Computing,
as well as Fog and Edge Computing domains. The objective of MCSMS2018 is to
provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss their
research and results on all aspects of Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) as well
as Fog and Mobile Edge Computing.
