NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE:
Although submissions have started coming in, we decided to extend the
submission deadline to AUGUST 24 because SIGMOBILE members may have
received this CFP just days before the original deadline because the
new "in cooperation"
relationship with ACM SIGMOBILE started quite late (official approval
from ACM HQ is still pending). Non-SIGMOBILE members please feel free to
follow the new deadline.

Wireless communication has added a new dimension of freedom to
the Internet. It gives people truly ubiquitous access to computing,
practically at any time, from anywhere in the world.
While mobility is needed in wired networks (e.g.,
an executive from Tokyo making a presentation at the New York
headquarters using his Tokyo office's database),
wireless technologies increases the intensity of
the needs, opportunities and challenges associated with mobile
computing. Indeed, mobile computing technology may bring changes
to traditional database issues such as business process, workflow,
metadata management, query processing, and transaction management.
It also introduces new issues such as mobility semantic modeling,
location dependent query, broadcast and multicast techniques, and
caching/pre-fetching policies. Moreover, the limitations in bandwidth,
battery power and device sizes have to be overcome for mobile computing
This workshop deals with the important aspect of supporting
data access over hybrid wireless and wired networks.
The topics of interests include but are not limited to those listed below.
- modeling location and mobility semantics
- data publication, push, broadcast and multicast techniques
- metadata management and exchanges
- workflow management
- user interface and content transformation for small devices
and limited bandwidth
- query processing and optimization, indexing and compression
- data placement, caching, replication and relocation
- location dependent data, user and data tracking
- transaction management in a weakly connected environment
- service assurance (QoS)
- mobile aware/adaptive/agent applications
- vehicle tracking and management systems
- satellite-based global positioning systems
- wireless enquiry systems: weather and traffic reports, stock quotes,
shopping information, etc
- ubiquitous computing systems on campus to support active learning
- Internet, Web and wireless protocols: HTTP, single-cast and
multicast protocols, WAP
- data presentation, scripting and exchange languages: XML, HTML, CSS, WML
- distributed system architecture: CORBA, IIOP, Java, DCOM
Papers reporting original research, development and applications
of prototypes, industrial experiences, technologies and
standards are welcome.
