Mobile handheld devices such as smartphones are extremely popular. People carry handheld devices anytime, anywhere and use them to perform daily activities like making phone calls, checking emails and schedules, and browsing the mobile Web. According to market research reports, the number of smartphones shipped worldwide has surpassed the number of PCs and servers shipped in 2011 and the gap between them is expected to grow. Emerging smartphones have created many applications that are not possible or convenient for PCs and servers, even laptops. Though handheld devices prevail, the technologies used are mostly unknown to users because they involve various complicated, fast-evolving disciplines like wireless and mobile networks and mobile operating systems. The mission of the International Journal of Handheld Computing Research (IJHCR) is to explore recent advances related to handheld computing by bringing together researchers and practitioners who work on the tools, methodologies, technologies, designs, software, standards, and applications in this area.

Testimonials and Reviews

The International Journal of Handheld Computing Research is a long waited journal for readers interested in handheld computing. This journal covers a broad range of handheld topics, both in depth and breadth. It is a must-read journal for IT personnel and students who want to keep up with the fast-evolving IT."

- Hung-Jen Yang, National Kaohsiung Normal University, Taiwan

“The International Journal of Handheld Computing Research (IJHCR) is a very timely journal in the field since it clearly identifies issues, analyses them and suggests novel solutions for a range of multimedia aspects unique to handheld computing. Among the key aspects covered are network adaptation for mobile terminals, algorithmic optimisations, interfaces for handheld devices and programming language issues. As such, this journal is necessary reading for academics and industrialists in the field, who will greatly benefit from the presented developments in the fast moving world of IT.”
- Christos Grecos, University of Central Lancashire, UK

“Given the growing and growing relevance of portable devices and of mobile services provisioned to them, there is the need for a specific and technically excellent journal capable of collecting relevant contributions in this very active and hot research topic. The International Journal of Handheld Computing Research will achieve that goal, by specifically concentrating, differently from other publications in the distributed systems area, on all the methodological and technological issues related to the realization of portable devices and services on their top.”
- Paolo Bellavista, Università di Bologna, Italy
