Today, mobile computing has been broadly deployed around the world to support mobile services and applications. However, emerging technologies such as advanced communication systems and networks, energy efficiency, fault tolerance, schedule and load balancing are still open issues for the pervasive adoption of the mobile computing paradigm. In addition, agent-based systems, human-computer interaction, multimedia communications and mobile cloud computing are important research areas able to play a key role in the efficient design and testing of mobile computing applications.

This special issue aims to collect significant contributions addressing innovative ideas, emerging technologies, methods and solutions for mobile computing systems and applications.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 4th International Conference on Applied and Theoretical Information Systems Research (ATISR 2014; 18-21 June, 2014, Taipei, Taiwan). However, we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this special issue.
