The convergence of wireless communications with internet protocols, semi-structured data models, distributed computing and multimedia processing has led to a revolution in products, services, and infrastructures for mobile information and communication management. For the next steps of this evolution, we are hitting limits of physical, computational, and organizational complexity simultaneously. Research questions span disciplinary boundaries from application engineering and usability all the way down to electronics and physics, as the traditional boundaries between protocol stack layers prevent innovative holistic solutions. Some of these challenges are addressed in UMIC, an excellence cluster on Ultra-highspeed Mobile Information and Communication funded at RWTH Aachen University as part of the German National Excellence Initiative since late 2006. This paper presents a brief summary of UMIC challenges and initial results mostly from an application perspective.
