The industrial track of MDM 2006 is to discuss novel aspects of mobile applications and prototype systems as well as user case studies, experiences and standards in the area of mobile data management. We solicit original research papers on the design specification, and implementation of mobile data and information management systems deployed in real applications.

Topics of Interests:

  • Theoretical foundations of data-intensive mobile computing
  • Location and mobility semantics
  • Data placement, caching, replication and relocation to support mobility
  • Data broadcasting/dissemination in mobile environments
  • Data presentation, scripting and exchange languages
  • Data management for ubiquitous/pervasive/wearable computing
  • Data management in sensor and mobile ad hoc networks
  • Data stream processing in mobile/sensor networks
  • Resource advertising and discovery techniques to support mobility
  • Metadata management and exchanges
  • Query processing and optimization for mobile users
  • Transactions and workflows in mobile computing
  • Middleware support for mobility
  • Web access and Internet applications using mobile devices
  • Context-aware computing and location-based services
  • Adaptation of user interface and content
  • Mobile agent platforms and ubiquitous computing applications and systems
  • Operating system and network support for mobile devices
  • Security and privacy issues for ubiquitous systems
  • Location tracking of vehicles and moving objects
  • Quality of service issues for data-intensive services
  • Adaptability and stability of pervasive computing systems
  • Data mining for mobile application
  • Resource indexing and overlay networks
  • Publish-subscribe approach in mobile computing
