Mobile computing is emerging as an important new paradigm which has the potential to reshape our thinking about distributed computation. Mobility has far-reaching implications on what designers and users can assume about communication patterns, resource availability, and applciation behaviors as components move from one location to another while joining or leaving groups of other components in their vicinity. New distributed algorithms are likely to be required as the nature of applications shifts with the emergence of this new kind of computing environment. Formal methods have an important role to play in the midst of these developments both in terms of helping the research community better understand fundamental issues germane to mobile computing and by providing pratical solutions to difficult design problems.
