ThinkAir: Dynamic resource allocation and parallel execution in the cloud for mobile code offloading
This paper proposes ThinkAir, a framework that makes it simple for developers to migrate their smartphone applications to the cloud and enhances the power of mobile cloud computing by parallelizing method execution using multiple virtual machine (VM) images.
Social-aware D2D communications: qualitative insights and quantitative analysis
A social-aware enhanced D2D communication architecture that exploits social networking characteristics for system design is proposed that improves spectral reuse, bring hop gains, and enhance system capacity.
Mobile Augmented Reality Survey: From Where We Are to Where We Go
This survey discusses advances in tracking and registration, since their functionality is crucial to any MAR application and the network connectivity of the devices that run MAR applications together with its importance to the performance of the application.
Multiple Mobile Data Offloading Through Disruption Tolerant Networks
The objective of achieving maximum mobile data offloading is formulated as a submodular function maximization problem with multiple linear constraints of limited storage, and three algorithms are proposed, suitable for the generic and more specific offloading scenarios, respectively, to solve this challenging optimization problem.
Understanding user behavior in online social networks: a survey
A comprehensive review of state-of-the-art research related to user behavior in OSNs from several perspectives, which discusses social connectivity and interaction among users, and investigates traffic activity from a network perspective.
Is the Same Instance Type Created Equal? Exploiting Heterogeneity of Public Clouds
It is found that heterogeneous hardware is a commonality among the relatively long-lasting cloud platforms, although the level of heterogeneity varies, and varied CPU acquisition percentages and different virtual machine scheduling mechanisms exacerbate the performance variation problem.
Exploiting Hardware Heterogeneity within the Same Instance Type of Amazon EC2
This paper looks into the hardware heterogeneity and the corresponding performance variation within the same instance type of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), finding out that there exist three different subtypes of hardware configuration in the standard large instance.

The n-epidemic routing protocol is proposed, an energy-efficient routing protocol for DTN based on the reasoning that in order to reach a large audiences with low number of transmissions, it is better to transmit only when the number of neighbors reaching a certain threshold.
Hear the Whole Story: Towards the Diversity of Opinion in Crowdsourcing Markets
This paper addresses the algorithmic optimizations towards the diversity of opinion of crowdsourcing marketplaces and proposes the Similarity-driven Model (S-Model) and Task-driven model (T-Model), which are efficient and effective algorithms to enlist a budgeted number of workers, which have the optimal diversity.
