Call For Papers

Call for Workshop Proposals

MDM 2020 aims at providing specialized workshops where researchers and practitioners will have an opportunity to explore, in a more focused manner, the specific interests of mobile data management. In addition to sharing experience, workshops are intended to provide a fertile ground for discussing possibly-controversial ideas.
We invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with MDM 2020 - tentatively scheduled to take place on June 30, 2020 - as preamble to the main conference. An important aspect that potential organizers should take into consideration is precisely the formatting - both in terms of scope and presentations' organization - so that the main objectives identified above are catered to. In particular, we would like to encourage organizers to avoid a mini-conference format by (i) encouraging the submission of position papers and extended abstracts, (ii) allowing plenty of time for discussions and debates, and (iii) organizing workshop panels. Organizers have free control over the format, style, and the building blocks of the workshop while respecting the main conference constraints (e.g. coffee break / lunch). Possible contents of a workshop include, but are not limited to, invited talks, regular papers/posters, panels, and other pragmatic alternatives. Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to announce the workshop and disseminate calls for papers, make and maintain the workshop website.
All accepted workshop papers will be published through IEEE Computer Society. The length of a regular workshop papers is limited to 6 pages (including references). The organizers may accept even shorter papers with prior notice to the workshop chairs.
Workshops Guidelines

Upon notification of acceptance of the proposal, workshop organizers are required to:
Follow up with announcements and calls for contributions on different forums and mailing lists.
Manage the reviewing process, both in terms of coordinating the PC members and ensuring resolving controversial submissions.
Collaborate with Proceedings Chairs for ensuring timely completion of the camera-ready copies.
Determine the final program of the respective workshop.
