SmartApps 2011 : International Workshop on Smart Mobile Applications
Call For Papers
International Workshop on Smart Mobile Applications (SmartApps'11)
in conjunction with The Ninth International Conference on Pervasive
Computing (PERVASIVE 2011) June 12 - 15, 2011 - San Francisco, CA, USA
Mobile computing is a related area of pervasive computing. Mobile
applications are rapidly developing and becoming more and more
important. They consist of software that runs on a smart phone or tablet
and perform certain tasks for the user of the cellular phone.
In this way, the user can use the application in its personal
situation and can take advantage of the mobile phone’s capabilities,
such as the camera, positioning and navigation or network access.
Now, mobile devices are becoming even smarter. They are computer
networked and user reconfigurable. A device can be seen as part of a
cloud or operate autonomously. It is a device, that consists of CPU,
storage and network access and has the intelligence to perform services
both reactive and proactive. It can also be seen as a part of a smart
environment, i.e. interact with a physical world consisting of sensors
and actuators, displays and computational elementsthat are connected
through a continuous network.
Currently, smartphones with more advanced computing capabilities and
connectivity than classic mobile phones offer more functionalities and
run smarter applications.
Mobile platforms comprise an increasing number of different sensors such
as photosensors, accelerometers, gyroscopes etc, thus allowing
sophisticated contextualized applications. In addition, users as well as
developers benefit from an increasing number of market places and online
stores for mobile applications. The concept of a mobile "app" that can
be purchased via centralized hubs is already very common among the
growing number of users.
Specifically, we solicit original research contributions in the
·App concepts and technologies for different mobile platforms
·Context-Matching, Context-Aggregation and Reasoning
·Applications of Artificial Intelligence to MobileApplications
·Mobile Social Networks
·Ensuring Privacy and Security for EnterpriseApplications
·Cross-Platform Software Design and Development
We solicit full technical papers which present previously
unpublished, original research. Papers will be peer-reviewed
by members of the TPC and additional experts from relevant research
areas. Papers must be formatted using the standard ACM template
sig-alternate.cls and must not exceed 6 pages in PDF format including
everything (references, figures, tables, appendices,...).
The template is available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates.
Papers must be submitted via the EDAS inferface at:
Accepted papers will be included in the
Electronic Proceedings distribued at the workshop
Depending on the quantity and qulity of accepted papers we
will organize a special edition of a journal or book
