Abstract: Mobile cloud computing (MCC) has emerged as a new paradigm of cloud computing. It is an extension of cloud computing with the support of mobility and computation on mobile devices. MCC offers great opportunities for mobile service industry, allowing mobile devices to access the applications and utilize the elastic resources offered by the cloud. It is predicted that MCC services will be the platforms of choice of IT industry for the next 20 years and generate huge revenue.When cloud meets mobile, there are many interesting and challenging issues to address. In this talk, I will first introduce different paradigms and applications of mobile cloud computing. Then, I will describe corresponding research topics and challenging issues. In the last part of this talk, I will introduce some work that we are focusing on in mobile cloud computing.
