The Symposium on Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Computing (MOWU) is an
integral part of the IEEE COMPSAC main conference. It will be held annually
with the first edition in 2015. Following the theme of the COMPSAC main
conference, the MOWU Symposium's scope covers recent advances in wireless
communications and the proliferation of powerful mobile devices that have
enabled a wide range of mobile services, everywhere and anytime. MOWU invites
both researchers and practitioners ˇto present their recent results, findings
and achievements in all components of the pervasive ubiquitous environments
including the advancement of software and middleware technologies in various
mobile-related sectors, ranging from effective synergic management of wireless
communications to adaptivity of system software, from horizontal support to
crowdsourcing in different application domains to dynamic offloading to cloud
resources, only to mention a few. ˇThe main goal of MOWU is to deepen the
understanding of, fostering innovation in, defining and addressing the
challenges in mobile communication regarding current and future mobile
services, applications, and devices for wearable and ubiquitous computing.


COMPSAC is the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software, and
Applications. It is one of the major international forums for academia,
industry, and government to discuss research results, advancements and future
trends in computer and software technologies and applications. COMPSAC 2015 will
be organized as a tightly integrated union of several symposia, each of which
will be focusing on a particular technical segment. Furthermore, COMPSAC 2015
will also include a student research competition, doctoral symposium, and fast
abstracts, in addition to special sessions, panels, and keynotes to facilitate
discourse on and deepen the understanding of the challenges by furthering the
fundamental contributions needed for advances in computing systems.


With the rapidly growing trend in making computations and data both mobile
and cloud-based, such systems are being designed and deployed worldwide.
However, there still exists several challenges when they are applied to
different domains or across domains. For example, the increasing convergence of
applications in handheld devices have led to the mobile gadgets being a part of
everyone's life. The hardware and software design in mobile systems with cloud-
based delegation of data/computation has introduced several new challenges such
as high power consumption, prolonged delays, security issues, big data, software
engineering, human-machine interface, and hierarchical or cross-platform
integration issues. COMPSAC 2015 will provide a platform for in-depth discussion
of such challenges in emerging application domains such as Smart and connected
health, wearable computing, internet-of-things, cyber-physical systems, and
smart planet.


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work and novel
computer applications; as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous
submission to other publication venues is not permitted.
The review and selection process for submissions is designed to identify papers
that break new ground and provide substantial support for their results and
conclusions as significant contributions to the field. Submissions will be
selected that represent a major advancement in the subject of the symposia to
which they are submitted. Authors of submissions with a limited contribution or
scope may be asked to revise their submissions into a more succinct camera-ready
format; e.g., a short paper, workshop paper, fast abstract, or poster. Beginning
2015, an independent review panel for the submitted industrial practice reports
will be established to conduct peer reviews using a different, but as rigorous,
set of review criteria from the industrial perspective.
All accepted contributions will be included the conference proceedings. The
length of a camera-ready regular paper or industry practice report is limited to
10 pages. Short papers and workshop papers are limited to 6 pages; fast
abstracts to 2 pages; and posters to 1 page. Please follow the IEEE Computer
Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines in preparing your paper. Each
accepted paper (full, short, industry, workshop, or fast abstract) is required
to be registered at full rate by one of its authors. Reduced registration rates
are available for posters and Doctoral Symposium papers, but such registrations
will provide limited privileges during the conference. All accepted papers will
be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society. In
order to enable indexing through INSPEC and EI Index, and inclusion in the IEEE
digital library, a paper must be presented in person by one of its authors.
A special poster session will be dedicated to Work-in-Progress, new ideas, and
emerging fields and research topics in the area of computer software. An area on
the conference premises will be designated for the presentation of such posters.
Poster presenters are expected to bring their printed poster and handouts and be
present for the entire duration of session. Attendees will browse the posters
and directly interact with the presenters. Thus, the poster session is intended
to be an informal, conversational forum for new ideas.
Best Paper and Best Student Paper Awards will be presented by COMPSAC 2015. The
first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student. Doctoral
Symposium papers and posters are encouraged; a reduced registration rate
applies. Authors of the best technical contributions will be invited to submit
an extended version of their paper for consideration by reputable journals. In
the past, certain technical contributions to COMPSAC were designated for
eventual publication in journals including IEEE Computer, IEEE Transactions on
Services Computing, Journal of Systems and Software, and Computer Communications
- among others.
