MobiQuitous 2009 : Sixth Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services
Conference Series : International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Networking and Services
Call For Papers
The Sixth Annual International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (MobiQuitous 2009) will provide a forum for practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds to interact and exchange experiences about the design and implementation of mobile and ubiquitous systems. Areas addressed by the conference include systems, applications, social networks, middleware, networking, data management and services, all with special focus on mobility and ubiquitous computing.
We solicit technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions should clearly identify how they relate to issues on mobile and ubiquitous systems. Contributions describing an overall working system are particularly of interest. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Ubiquitous architectures, systems and applications
* Wearable computing and personal area networks
* Wireless technologies (Bluetooth, ZigBee, 802.15.x, WiFi, WiMAX)
* Wireless Internet access in ubiquitous systems
* Ad hoc and sensor network support for ubiquitous computing
* Reconfigurability and personalization of wireless networks
* Wireless/mobile service management and delivery
* Security and privacy of mobile and ubiquitous systems
* Social Networks
* Trust Computation, Propagation and Use
* Community based computing
* Service and knowledge discovery, matching and composition mechanisms
* Location-based services and tracking in ubiquitous environments
* Context- and location-aware applications
* Agent technologies in ubiquitous, wearable, and mobile systems
* Energy efficiency and awareness
* Toolkits, testbeds, development environments, and languages for ubiquitous computing
* Rapid prototyping of ubiquitous applications
* Mobile and ubiquitous data management and processing
* Data replication, migration and dissemination in ubiquitous environments
* Queries, transactions and workflows in mobile and ubiquitous environments
* Multimodal interfaces (speech, video kinetic, tactile)
* Mixed (virtual/real) world infrastructures
Paper submission will be handled electronically. Authors should prepare an Adobe Acrobat PDF version of their full paper. Papers must not exceed 10 pages double column (US Letter size, 8.5 x 11 inches) including text, figures and references. The font size must be at least 10 points. Please visit the Submission page for detailed submission requirements and procedures.
All submitted papers will be rigorously reviewed by the international technical program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Proposals for workshops are solicited. Potential instructors are requested to submit a workshop proposal of at most 5 pages, including biographical sketch of each organizers, to the Workshop Chairs by Jan 20, 2009. Evaluation of workshop proposals will be based on the expertise and experience of the organizers and the relevance of the subject matter.
