Description

Theme of the workshop:

The wide deployment of wireless networks and mobile technologies
and significant increase of the number of mobile device users
have created a very strong demand on various wireless-based
mobile-based software application systems and enabling
technologies. This provides many new business opportunities
and challenges to wireless and networking service providers,
mobile technology vendors, content providers and solution
integrators. Living in a wireless world changes and enhances
people’s life in many areas, such as mobile communications,
wireless information sharing and learning, m-commerce, home
environment, and entertainment. Today, business organizations
and government agencies face with new pressure for technology
update in network infrastructures and enterprise solutions to
support wireless connectivity and mobility. To meet the increasing
demand on various reliable wireless-based software application
systems, business people are looking for innovative ideas to
create diverse mobile-commerce applications and service systems,
and engineers are looking for cost-effective engineering methods
and efficient solutions to build high-quality wireless-based
software and application systems. Therefore, today studying
and solving technical issues in engineering wireless-based
software and application systems is becoming a hot research
subject for academic researchers and the industry community.
The major theme of this workshop is engineering high-quality
mobile-based application systems to support mobile users
anywhere at anytime.

Goals of the workshop:

The International Workshop on Engineering Mobile-Based Systems
and Applications (EMOBS07) is the forum to bring together
researchers, scientists, software architects, and industry
professionals for discussing innovative ideas and engineering
solutions to construct high-quality wireless-based software
systems and applications. Using this forum, researchers and
industrial professionals can exchange issues, challenges, and
new ideas and solutions.

Authors are invited to submit original and research papers
addressing engineering issues, challenges, solutions, and
technologies in building wireless-based software systems and
applications. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the
members of the international program committee.
Accepted paper will be included in the COMPSAC 2007 workshop
proceedings (EI-Index) published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
