Call for Papers (Download a PDF flyer)

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 term mobile in MDM has been used from the very beginning in a broad sense to encompass all aspects of mobility – aspects related to wireless, portable and tiny devices. The conference provides unique opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences.

We invite submissions of original research contributions and industrial papers as well as proposals for demos, panels and workshops.

A number of events (workshop, demos, panels, seminars, PhD forum, and special industrial forum) will be organized to cater for all academic activities, apart from research track activities.

    - Workshops are for fast track publications of papers
    - Demos will present state of the art prototypes
    - Panels will review current research activities and explore new frontiers
    - PhD forum to encourage student participation
    - Industrial forum for companies to present their research and development


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

    - Adaptability and stability of pervasive computing systems
    - Context-aware computing and location-based services
    - 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 applications
