Mobile Computing research is progressing at a fast pace. While the initial research challenges were about enabling "information anywhere, anytime", we have largely achieved that aim today with mobile devices providing ubiquitous email and web access. With initial goals achieved, mobile computing research now routinely involves use of several other technologies, e.g. cloud computing, sensing and activity inference, opportunistic communications, etc. to create the next-generation mobile computing systems. In this course, through latest research papers, several of these technologies, e.g. external sensor integration, power consumption and analysis, cross-platform applications etc., are studied.
