The 7th international conference on Mobile Data Management (MDM 2006) will be held in Nara, Japan on May 9-12, 2006. The objective of MDM 2006 is to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners in the area of wireless and mobile data management and access technology so that they can share their findings to promote the pervasive computing technology many steps further.

In addition to paper presentations, demos, etc., MDM 2006 will also exploit the strength of the state of the art panels to achieve its objective. MDM2006, therefore, invites panel proposals on conference themes.
