Mobile is becoming mainstream. Mobile devices are among the most sold computers in the world. For instance, Apple sold over 70 million iPhone 4S only in 2011; Samsung recently announced over 30 million sold Galaxy S III only in 2012. One of the reasons behind the mobile hype is the ever-growing power of mobile devices, which often outperform a typical five-year-old desktop computer. Moreover, mobile devices offer novel human-computer interfaces like touch-screens or speech recognition, and employ powerful sensors, such as GPS, gyroscopes, or video cameras. These interfaces and sensors enable a fully new spectrum of context-aware, personalized, and intelligent software services and applications.

The powerful, modern software frameworks and libraries, which enable the design of new mobile "apps" in several hours, together with the huge, highly dynamic user communities make mobile platforms very attractive also for developers. As of September 2012, over 700,000 applications are available in the Apple AppStore, more than 500,000 in Google Play. Download numbers are astronomic - around 1 billion per month in the Apple AppStore - thanks to the application distribution platforms, where users can buy and deploy apps with just one click.

Mobile brings new potentials and challenges for the software engineering community. As researchers and practitioners we need to ask ourselves whether common software engineering tools, methods, and processes are appropriate for designing and maintaining mobile software services and applications, whether mobility has an impact on how software needs to be designed, and whether there are any special circumstances at all for our community – or whether mobile is only "yet another platform". This workshop discusses issues, approaches, and tools regarding the engineering of mobile software applications and services.

Specific areas of interests include, but are not limited to:

- Requirements engineering for mobile services, in particular:
- User communities, user involvement, and user feedback
- Context aware mobile services
- Usability, privacy, security, and performance
- Design and implementation of mobile services, in particular:
- Tools, frameworks, and design patterns for mobile applications and services
- Virtualization approaches
- Development environments and frameworks for mobile services and applications
- Mobile service deployment, in particular:
- App engines, app stores
- Integration of mobile apps with conventional software systems
- Beta testing platforms
- Case studies, success and failure stories on engineering mobile services
- Using mobile services by software engineering teams
- Mobile computing in software engineering education

Our goals are (1) to establish a community around potentials and challenges provided by mobile services for software engineering research and practice; and (2) to identify open issues, novel approaches, and future research directions in the area of software engineering for mobile applications and services.


We invite three kinds of submissions:

- Short papers (5-7 pages) state the position of the authors within the scope of the workshop, and can describe solution concepts in a premature state.

- Full papers (10-14 pages) describe problems, needs, novel approaches and frameworks within the scope of the workshop. Evaluations of new approaches are to be included in a full paper. Empirical evaluation papers and industrial experience reports are also welcome for submissions.

- Posters and demo papers (3-4 pages) summarize work results.

All papers must conform to the LNI formatting guidelines and must not exceed the page limits mentioned above, including figures and references. All submissions must be in English. Papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format. The submission site is hosted by EasyChair and can be accessed from the workshop website.

All accepted papers will distributed to the workshop participants. Long and short position papers will be invited to be included in the workshop proceedings and to be published in the Series Lecture Notes in Informatics, which is indexed by DBLP.

It is the desire of the organizers that discussion of research at the workshop does not preclude publication of closely related material at conferences or journals. Authors of accepted papers will be able to choose whether to include their papers in the workshop proceedings.
