CALL FOR PAPERS:
 

Scope:

The rapid advances in computing and wireless communication technologies along with their integration into commodity devices such as personal digital assistants, mobile phones, and portable computers provide a technical infrastructure that enables a broad range of mobile services and applications. These include scenarios where seamless access to a computing infrastructure is provided, scenarios where interaction and data sharing among mobile users occur in mobile ad hoc networks, and hybrid scenarios that combine these two.

The continued miniaturization of computing devices along with improvements in the performance/price ratio enable new services and applications, e.g., in environmental monitoring and transportation. Although substantial research has been conducted, this area remains ripe with open research challenges, e.g., in relation to context-aware computing, such as location-based services or ubiquitous computing applications; mobile applications in hybrid networks; and consistency and data processing in sensor networks.

The conference focuses on research contributions within data management in relation to mobile, wearable, and pervasive computing. The conference invites submissions within this area. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following.

Topics of Interests:
      • Theoretical foundations of data-intensive mobile computing
      • Location and mobility semantics
      • Data placement, caching, replication and relocation to support mobility
      • Data broadcasting/dissemination in mobile environments
      • Data presentation, scripting and exchange languages
      • Data management for pervasive computing
      • Data management in sensor networks
      • Data stream processing in mobile/sensor networks
      • Resource advertising and discovery techniques to support mobility
      • Metadata management and exchanges
      • Query processing and optimization for mobile users
      • Transactions and workflows in mobile computing
      • Middleware support for mobility
      • Middleware support for ubiquitous computing
      • Multimedia delivery in 3G mobile networks
      • Context-aware computing and location-based services
      • Operating system and network support for mobile devices
      • Security and privacy issues of mobile data management
      • Integration of sensor networks into pervasive environments
      • Quality of service issues for data-intensive services
      • Adaptability and stability of pervasive computing systems
      • Data mining for mobile application
