CALL FOR PAPERS

[Scope]

MobiCASE, the International Conference on Mobile Computing, Applications, and Services, is a confluence between academia and industry on mobile applications and services research. The conference will showcase cutting-edge mobile computing research, feature demos of industry's most exciting mobile applications and services, and engage participants in hands-on projects and tutorials.

[Topics]

We seek novel submissions in mobile applications, services and mobile systems research in domain topics above the OSI transport layer with an emphasis on complete end-to-end systems and their components. The conference will be organized into two broad categories, with topics of interest including, but not limited to:

Mobile Applications

- Mobile pervasive applications such as smart healthcare/wellbeing, disaster management, mobile learning, transportation, enterprise solutions and multilingual support.
- Mobile sensing applications such as indoor location, activity recognition, heterogeneous sensor fusion, social sensing and reality mining.
- Mobile applications for social innovation such as mHealth, mLearning, citizen media and improved livelihoods in the western world as well as developing countries.
- Mobile social networking such as crowd sourcing, twittering and other social network driven applications.
- Novel user experience and interfaces such as visualization techniques for mobile content, multimodal interaction, wearable computing, accessibility and safety issues.
- Personalization, such as behavior modeling, behavior-aware and context-aware applications, personal assistance with mobile devices.
- Mobile advertising such as targeted advertising, location based recommendation, in-game marketing and proximity systems.

Mobile Services and Platforms

- Smartphone platforms (such as Android, iOS, BlackBerry OS, MeeGo, Symbian, webOS, Windows Phone 7) and supporting tools, libraries, and compilers.
- Mobile software engineering and management such as application lifecycle management, adaptive and self-configuring applications, middleware, App stores and distribution models.
- Mobile cloud computing and Mobile Web such as HTML5, MobileAjax, Mobile Flash, J2ME, and others.
- Mobile payments and M2M infrastructure

Research papers should focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of complete systems and components. Regular research papers are limited to ten (10) single-spaced, double-column, 8.5" x 11" pages with a 10-point font size. We also encourage researchers and students to submit short work-in-progress (WIP) papers, which are limited to six (6) pages.
Industrial extended abstracts for posters and demonstrations should focus on new achievements and advances in practical mobile applications and services, or report on open problems or challenges that arise from an industrial context. Industry abstracts are limited to two (2) pages.

[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. See http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-1068921-0 for more information about indexing.

[Paper submission]

Research papers should focus on the design, implementation and evaluation of complete systems and components. Regular research papers are limited to ten (10) single-spaced, double-column, 8.5" x 11" pages with a 10-point font size. We also encourage researchers and students to submit short work-in-progress (WIP) papers, which are limited to six (6) pages.

Industrial Extended abstracts on new achievements and advances in practical mobile applications and services, or open problems or challenges that arise from an industrial context are also welcome. The goal of the industrial track is to foster the exchange of ideas, solutions, best practices, and requirements between research and industry on recent and on-going work in mobile applications and service provisioning for mobile users. We also encourage the participation from small development/consulting companies and start-ups for their business development opportunities. Industry abstracts are limited to two (2) pages.

MobiCASE requires that all papers describe novel, unpublished work not currently under review elsewhere. Submission instructions will be available at
