Call for Workshop Proposals

MDM 2017 aims at providing specialized workshops where researchers and practitioners will have an opportunity to explore in a more focused manner, the specific interests of mobile data management. In addition to sharing experience, workshops are intended to provide a fertile ground for discussing possibly-controversial ideas.

We invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with MDM 2017 – tentatively scheduled to take place on May 29 – as preamble to the main conference. An important aspect that potential organizers should take into consideration is precisely the formatting – both in terms of scope and presentations’ organization – so that the main objectives identified above are catered to.

Workshops Guidelines

Upon notification of acceptance of the proposal, workshop organizers are required to:

- Follow up with announcements and calls for contributions on difference forums and mailing lists.
- Manage the reviewing process, both in terms of coordinating the PC members and ensuring resolving controversial submissions.
- Collaborate with Proceedings Chairs for ensuring timely completion of the camera-ready copies.
- Determine the final program of the respective workshop.

All accepted workshop papers will be published through IEEE Computer Society and the length of a regular workshop papers is limited to 6 pages – however, the organizers may accept even shorter papers with prior notice to the workshop chairs.
