The 2012 International Conference on Mobile Data Management (MDM 2012), to be held in Bangalore, India (July 23-26, 2012) solicits innovative industrial experience papers related to data management in ubiquitous, mobile, cloud and social computing.

Since the first conference was organized, the amount of mobile data available has exploded, and the use of it has changed significantly. Data from mobile users, even when anonymized, is a significant strategic asset to companies. At the same time, legislation and user expectations raise significant hurdles to the use of the data, which must be met.

The industrial session will focus on the use of data management in mobile systems, such as the use of Hadoop, MapReduce, and other advanced database techniques for data mining; applications of data mining such as movement and demographic tracing; user, business and legal requirements for anonymization and privacy of mobile data and how to reconcile conflicting requirements; tools and techniques for crawling, processing, visualization and analysis of mobile datasets, and data management issues related to emerging mobile applications like crowdsourcing.


Conference Topics:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Adaptability and stability of pervasive computing systems
  • Augmented reality systems, data issues
  • Context-aware computing and location-based services
  • Cultural data issues and management in developing countries like India and China
  • Data management in sensor and mobile ad hoc networks
  • Data management in mobile peer-to-peer networks
  • Data management in the mobile cloud
  • Data mining for mobile and social networking
  • Data replication, migration and dissemination in mobile environments
  • Data stream processing in mobile/sensor networks
  • Emerging mobile computing models/services like crowdsourcing
  • Human-centric activity recognition
  • Indexing, query processing and optimization for mobile users
  • Location and trajectory data management
  • Mobile semantic data management
  • Managing pervasive data, sensor data streams and user devices
  • Management of community sensing/participatory sensing data
  • Management of real-time data in converged networks
  • Mobile social applications and services
  • OS and middleware for mobile and pervasive computing
  • People-centric mobile sensing networks and smart urban spaces
  • Resource advertising and discovery techniques
  • Real-world data from field trials and user studies
  • Security and privacy issues for ubiquitous systems
  • Transactions and workflows in mobile environments
