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.
