The ever-increasing market penetration of smartphones, tablets and netbooks, along with the ubiquitous availability of wireless networks, are deeply influencing the way people live, work, interact and socialise. The broad popularity and diffusion of innovative services and applications tailored at mobile users is also raising challenging research issues that require us to rethink available mobile technology solutions to meet the emerging needs of a broader and ever-growing user base.

This special issue aims at addressing recent research results regarding the ways to handle dynamism and mobility in mobile and wireless networking and to present methodologies, models, simulation tools, applications, works in progress and real world experiences. We seek original completed and unpublished work not currently under review by any other journal/magazine/conference.
