The infrastructure of mobile grid presents some challenges to allow the interaction between mobile devices and grid environments, such as (a) applications submission and monitoring facilities in an automated and coordinated manner, (b) disconnections during execution of applications, and (c) selection of suitable grid resources for their execution. This article presents a framework, coined as SuMMIT, that employs the workflow concept for providing automated and coordinated features and a resource matching based on ontology for selecting resources for applications execution in grid configurations. A case study has demonstrated that the framework has selected more suitable resources for applications, thus, submitting them from mobile devices to a grid configuration. In addition, the SuMMIT environment provides an execution How adjustment, in disconnection case of the mobile device, matching requirements of submitted application and options defined by the user.
