Call for Workshop Proposals
The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in December 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile data management. The conference provides unique opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences.
Following the MDM tradition, MDM 2012 workshops will provide participants with opportunities to discuss and explore emerging areas of mobile data management with fellow students, researchers, and practitioners. The goals of the workshops are to establish a common understanding of a certain aspect, to share experiences, foster research communities, learn from each other, identify open problems and/or explore directions for future research. Note that the workshops are expected to provide significant room for controversial and stimulating discussions. The organizers of the workshop should thus take care of planning the correct presentation format to enable such kind of lively interaction. The organizers of accepted workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct the reviewing process, and decide upon the final workshop program.
Workshops are tentatively planned to be held the day before the conference. Publication of accepted workshop papers will be through IEEE Computer Society. The page limits for accepted regular workshop papers are 6 pages, including all figures, tables, and references.
Workshop proposals should be no longer than 5 pages and must include:
- The Workshop title and acronym.
- A summary of no more than 250 words describing the theme(s) of the workshop.
- A more detailed description of the workshop format, specific goals and plan, and explanations of why the workshop is a good match with MDM.
- The names, addresses, and a short bio (up to 200 words) of the organizers (up to three).
- The names of potential program committee members.
- If applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop, including number of submitted and accepted papers, and number of attendees.
- The expected number of participants and the means of soliciting participation.
- A description of the publicity plan.
- A tentative Call for Papers of the workshop, including the workshop website address.
Acceptance of workshop proposals will be determined by the MDM 2012 workshop co-chairs. Email your proposal in PDF format to the Workshop Co-Chairs with “MDM Workshop Proposal” as the subject line by the submission deadline. Please feel free to contact the workshop chairs in case of any questions or suggestions.
