With a multi-million dollar predicted market value by 2015, and with more than 1 trillion cloud-ready devices expected over the next four years, mobile cloud computing (MCC) and the internet of things (IoT) are considered to be the hottest new technology markets.

MCC and IoT integrate different major technologies such as smart phones, tablets, services, sensors, big data and cloud computing into one platform provided to end users. Many issues are still challenging the rapid growth of MCC and IoT. These challenges are related to networking, cloud services, security, quality and availability of services, user data management, and many other areas. This special issue aims to focus on new ideas and solutions to tackle these challenges.
