DIALM-POMC, the Joint Workshop on Foundations of Mobile Computing, will be co-located with DISC 2010 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

Mobile computing and communications devices will have an enormous impact on our lifestyle over the next several decades as the true integration of personal computing, distributed computing, cellular technologies and the Web becomes the reality. In the light of continuously increasing interaction between communication and computing, there arise a number of interesting, and difficult algorithmic issues in diverse areas including coverage, mobility, routing, cooperation, capacity planning, scheduling, and power control.

This workshop is devoted to cover contributions in both the design and analysis of discrete and distributed algorithms and the system modeling in the context of mobile, wireless, ad-hoc, and sensor networks. In particular, it aims at bringing together the practitioners and theoreticians of the field and is intended to foster cooperation among researchers in mobile computing and researchers in discrete and distributed algorithms. DIALM-POMC 2010 will be held in September in Cambridge, MA, USA, and will be co-located with the 24th Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC 2010). Previous DIALM-POMC workshops had been co-located with the International Conference on Mobile Computing and Networking (MOBICOM) and the International Conference on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC).

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: We are proud to announce that DIALM 2010 will feature 2 keynote speakers:
- Rajmohan Rajaraman, Northeastern University
- Ranveer Chandra, Microsoft Research

PAPERS: All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. Contributions are solicited in all areas related to mobile and wireless computing and communications where discrete algorithms and methods are utilized. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
