Collocated with WWW2003 conference
Emerging Applications for
Aim and Scope
We are in the midst of a mobile revolution. Besides achieving pervasive mobile computing requires innovative theories, paradigms and applications in mobile data management. The objective of this workshop is to provide a single forum for researchers and technologists to discuss the state-of-the-art, present their contributions, and set future directions in emerging innovative applications for mobile wireless access.
The workshop will be organized in a manner designed to foster interaction and exchange of ideas among the participants. Besides paper presentations, time will be allocated to open discussion forums, informal discussions and panels. In addition to regular papers, vision or work-in-progress papers are also invited to stimulate debates on open problems and challenges. Proposals for panels are also solicited. Panel topics on emerging or even provocative topics that will generate lively discussions are especially welcome.
Topics of interest for technical papers include, but are not limited to the following:
· Security of mobile applications
· Design of user interface for mobile devices
· Peer-to-peer mobile computing
· Hybrid applications that seamlessly transfer between cellular and wireless LAN systems
· Emerging standards and transition issues
· Robustness and Quality of Service (QoS) issues
· Performance studies of mobile applications
· Location Aware Services and Applications
The topics of interest are particularly important for the Spring 2003 timeframe to align carriers’ deployment strategies and application/service providers’ needs. ROI has been low from many carriers’ perspectives for a variety of reasons one of which is the lack of innovative and appealing applications for the end user.
Submissions will be solicited and all papers are subject to peer review. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two peers and their collective comments will be taken into consideration to decide paper acceptance. We will maintain a rather high level of importance on the technical feasibility of the proposed applications for a telecommunications carrier managed service or a premise based enterprise deployment at large scale.
This conference will provide an international forum to discuss issues on emerging mobile applications both from a technical and business stand point. The chosen mix of papers will attract a large community of mobile application providers. The targeted audience will range from developers and technical managers to business level executives, providing a good mix of talent.
