MDM 2016 : Mobile Data Management
Call For Papers
The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in December 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile data management. The term mobile in MDM has been used from the very beginning in a broad sense to encompass all aspects of mobility – aspects related to wireless, portable and tiny devices. The conference provides unique opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences.
We invite submissions of original research contributions and industrial papers as well as proposals for demos, panels and workshops.
A number of events (workshop, demos, panels, seminars, PhD forum, and special industrial forum) will be organized to cater for all academic activities, apart from research track activities.
Workshops are for fast track publications of work-in-progress papers
Demos will present state of the art systems and prototypes
Panels will review current research activities and explore new frontiers
PhD forum is to encourage doctoral student participation
Industrial forum for companies to present their research and development technologies/systems.
We solicit research papers in areas related to mobility, context and data. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Mobile Cloud Computing and Data Management in the Mobile Cloud
