CALL FOR PAPERS: The 7th Annual International Conference on Mobile Wireless Middleware, Operating Systems, and Applications

unnamed2

Special Annual Theme: “Mobile Middleware: Connecting Sensors, Clouds and Big Data”

9-11 November, 2015 – Wuhan, China

SCOPE

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.

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)

Paper Submission

All the papers, formatted according with the usual Springer proceedings intructions, have to be submitted through the conference online system at: http://confy.eai.eu

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.

The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work through one of the following EAI endorsed publications:

Best Paper Award

The program committee will designate one paper accepted to the conference as MOBILWARE 2015 Best Paper. The winner will be declared during the conference
