CALL FOR PAPERS

[Scope]

The advances in wireless communication technologies and the proliferation of mobile devices have enabled the realization of intelligent environments for people and machines to communicate with each other, interact with information-processing devices, and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through various types of networks and systems everywhere, anytime. A key enabler of these pervasive and ubiquitous connectivity environments is the advancement of software technology in various communication sectors, ranging from communication middleware and operating systems to networking protocols and applications.

[Topics]

The conference solicits original technical papers, not previously published and not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- New middleware concepts for mobile devices
- Mobile middleware enabling M2M communication
- People-centric collaborative sensing
- Scalable processing and data analytics over mobile sensors-generated
datastreams
- Smart space/city middleware and applications
- Middleware for mobile cloud computing
- Novel applications and communication protocols for wireless sensor
networks, vehicular networks, and home networks
- End-to-end architectures for seamless ubiquitous service provisioning and deployment
- Integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks
- QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services
- Opportunistic and delay-tolerant mobile and wireless networking
- Location-aware and context-aware networking and computing
- Energy-efficient applications, services and middleware
- Mobility and handoff management
- Location and tracking support and services
- Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices
- Modeling, simulation, and performance evaluation of mobile wireless systems and services
- Trustworthiness, security, and privacy of mobile and wireless systems
- Thin client technologies, Mobile Web APIs, BONDI, WAC, Html5
- Impact of IMS, RCS, RCS-e, EPC and LTE on the evolution of mobile middleware


[Publications]

Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus.

[Best paper award]

The program committee will designate one paper accepted to the conference as MOBILWARE 2012 Best Paper. The winner will be declared during the conference.

[Journal Special Issues]

Extended versions of selected best papers will be invited for journal
submission (fast review track) to "ICST Transactions on Mobile
Communications and Applications" and "ICST Transactions on Ubiquitous
Environments".
