Mobile apps and smartphones are only one instance of today’s mobile computing technology. RFID tags, sensor nodes, and computing-enabled mobile devices are all components of the current mobile computing paradigm. These devices are being integrated into enterprise systems and mission-critical systems as a way to collect, access, and analyze data in the field. From a systems and software architecture perspective, mobile devices and sensors are being integrated into IT solutions and re-shaping the way that systems are built. We call these systems mobile-enabled systems. In these systems the mobile device is not simply a “unit” but rather a “node” that is part of a much larger system.

Traditionally, mobile app development has been ad hoc, driven by short time-to-market schedules, small short-lived apps, and different economics, to the point that there is an apparent regression in quality of mobile apps compared to desktop and enterprise systems. Larger-scale mobile-enabled systems require a much more mature development approach, with a focus on software architecture principles that promote important quality attributes such as security, performance, battery optimization, and reliability on the mobile device, as well as resilience, reliability, security, privacy and scalability on the enterprise side. The impact that mobility has on software architecture and how the software architecture research community can help address these and other relevant issues will be discussed in the AMeS workshop, thus providing new insights on the key challenges faced by architects of mobile-enabled systems.

The goal of AMeS 2014 is therefore to create a focal point and an ongoing forum for researchers and practitioners to share results and open issues in the area of software architectures for mobile-enabled systems.


AMeS 2014 seeks contributions in topics, such as:
* Tactics for quality attributes such as availability, scalability, reliability, resiliency, testability, security and privacy in mobile-enabled systems
* Architecture evaluation of mobile-enabled systems
* Novel software architectures for scalably supporting data collection and synchronization across mobile devices
* Tactics for resource optimization of mobile devices
* Context-aware and adaptable mobile-enabled systems
* Dynamic and context-aware composition of user-interfaces for mobile-enabled systems
* Architectures for data-driven computing
* Model-driven techniques for architecture, design, analysis and implementation of mobile-enabled systems
* Empirical studies, case studies and industry experiences
* Generative approaches (e.g., models and DSLs) to assist in managing the complexity resulting from the heterogeneous composition of mobile-enabled platforms


The submission and review process will be done using EasyChair ( Submissions must follow the ACM formatting style guidelines, as noted on the AMeS web page. All accepted papers will be published in the conference electronic proceedings and the ACM Digital Library. To encourage discussion, the page limit for papers is 6 pages.
