Call For Papers

International Symposium on Advances in Transaction Processing 2012

In conjunction with the The 9th International Conference on Mobile Web
Information Systems
August 27-29, 2012, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

Transaction processing (TP) has been successfully used in database
applications from decades. The basic principle of TP is to provide
applications with concurrent, reliable and efficient access to shared data
sources. Classical transaction processing has been well understood and
highly researched through the design and development of numerous models,
protocols, frameworks, prototype tools and commercial systems.

The current widespread technological advancements in computer systems,
software applications, communication networks, and mobile devices provide
new platforms such as Web x.0, cloud services, Internet of Things, or
mobile and pervasive computing. These new platforms create new challenges
for transaction processing. These challenges are to deal with environments
wherein computing devices and services are context-aware, adaptive and
responsive to the user’s needs and the execution environment. Further,
without regard to time and location they allow users to move between
geographical areas and acquire a variety of services using handheld
devices and wireless networks. These new platforms demand new ways of
managing and processing transactions.

The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners in order to present the current research work on the
advances in transaction processing. The main topics to be addressed
include (but not limited to):

* Advanced transaction models and protocols
* Failure and recovery of transactions
* Testing of transactions
* Performance and efficiency of transactions
* New correctness criteria and properties of transactions
* Transactional web services and SOA
* Cloud service provisioning using transactional applications
* Context-aware transaction processing
* Transaction processing in the (Web) Internet of Things
* Mobile and pervasive transactions
* Transactional memory

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts using PDF or MS Word
formats. The length of the paper is limited to 6 pages using Elsevier
guidelines which are available on the MobiWIS 2012 website

All accepted papers will be included in the MobiWIS 2012 proceedings which
will be published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer
Science series (on-line and CD). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect
(, and will be freely available worldwide. All
papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus ( and
Engineering Village (Ei) ( This includes EI
Compendex ( All accepted papers will also be indexed
in DBLP (
