Call For Papers

The 7th Annual International Conference on Mobile Wireless Middleware, Operating Systems, and Applications

Special Annual Theme:
"Mobile Middleware: Connecting Sensors, Clouds and Big Data"
10-12 November, 2014 – Nanjing, China

Recent advances in wireless communications, the proliferation of powerful mobile devices and cloud services have enabled smart cyber-physical environments and mobile clouds where people and devices can seamlessly interact and mass-market users are willing to receive/contribute to a wide range of mobile services, everywhere and anytime, while interacting with massive amounts of big data.
A key enabler of these pervasive ubiquitous environments is the advancement of software and middleware technologies in various mobile-related sectors, ranging from effective synergic management of wireless communications to mobility/adaptivity support in operating systems, from horizontal support to crowdsourcing in different domains to dynamic offloading to cloud resources as part of big data, only to mention a few. The middleware connecting sensors, clouds and big-data remains challenge.

Conference topics
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• New middleware concepts for mobile devices
• New middlware to support rich space of networked sensor system
• Mobile middleware enabling machine-to-machine communication
• Mobile crowdsourcing and people-centric collaborative sensing
• Big data from mobile sensors-generated data streams
• Middleware coupling with big data
• Middleware-aware big data platforms and services
• Data-intensive services for next-generation middleware
• Smart space/city middleware and applications
• Uncertain and imprecise information processing over middleware
• Mobile Middleware services for big data accesss and report generation
• Middleware for mobile cloud computing (e.g., seamless offloading)
• Novel mechanisms for wireless-sensor and home networks
• End-to-end architectures for ubiquitous service provisioning and deployment
• Synergic integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks
• QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services
• Opportunistic, delay-tolerant, and store-carry-forward techniques for mobile and wireless networking
• Location/context-dependent support and services
• Energy-efficient applications, services, and middleware
• Mobility and handoff management
• Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices
• Modeling, simulation, and performance evaluation of mobile wireless systems
• Programming paradigms for middleware
• Trustworthiness, security, and privacy of mobile and wireless systems
• Privacy-preserving middleware access and management - Thin client technologies, Mobile Web APIs, BONDI, WAC, HTML5
• Impact ofIMS,RCS,RCS-e,EPC and LTE on the evolution of mobile middleware
• Mobile Social Networking
• Specialized middleware for social computing
• Specialized middleware for semantic computing
• Applications (such as mHealth, mCommerce) using mobile middleware
• Challenges in 4G wireless network and its middleware services
• Middleware for small cells and heterogeneous networks (for 5G networks) Important dates
• Full Paper Deadline July 31, 2014
• Tutorials proposal Deadline June 15, 2014
• Acceptance Notification September 30, 2014
• Camera‐ready Deadline October 10, 2014

• For the first time, in 2014, the conference will be held in China - one of the world largest economy
• MobilWare is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to ICT innovation advancements
• All accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and made available through its Digital Library, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL)
• Proceedings will be submitted for indexing in all major biblio indexes, e.g., Google Scholar, ISI, EI Compendex, Scopus, and many more
• Extended versions of selected best papers will be invited for magazine submission (special sections and fast review track) to IEEE IT Professional

Paper Submission
All the papers, formatted according with the usual IEEE proceedings instructions, have to be submitted through the conference online system at:
Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. Full details of submission procedures are available here.

Best Paper Award
The program committee will designate one paper accepted to the conference as MOBILWARE 2014 Best Paper. The winner will be declared during the conference.

Proposals for Tutorials and Workshops are solicited. Potential Tutorial/Workshop organizers are requested to submit a three-page proposal in PDF format, including a biographical sketch of each proponent and a short bibliographic reference list, to the Tutorial & Workshop Chair by June 15, 2014. All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to:

Accepted tutorials and workshops will be typically half-day long, with the possibility of full-day events only if adequately motivated. Proposal evaluation will be based mainly on proponents' expertise and tutorial/workshop relevance to the conference.
