The rapidly increasing power of personal mobile devices (Smartphones, tablets, etc.) is providing much richer contents and social interaction to users on the move. But the limited battery life time of mobile devices and unstable wireless connectivity make the highest possible quality of service experienced by mobile users not feasible. The recent cloud computing technology with its rich resource to compensate for the limitation of mobile devices and connections can potentially provide an ideal platform to support the desired mobile services. Tough challenges arise on how to effectively exploit cloud resource to facilitate mobile services, especially those with stringent interaction delay requirements.
