The 1st International Workshop on Managing Data with Mobile Devices (MDMD 2009)

6-7 May, 2009 - Milan, Italy

In conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2009)

Aim of the Workshop
After the decades of mainframe and of personal computers, mobile  computing forms the 3rd century of computing. Nowadays, mobile devices, such as sensor nodes, mobile phones, personal digital assistants, smart phones,  sub-notebooks, etc. are omnipresent. Furthermore, they are used by more  and more heterogeneous people than PCs or mainframes were used before,  and most people do use more than only one device. These facts in  combination with the well known hardware limitations of mobile devices  and wireless networks opens a new research field that focuses on how to  manage data with mobile devices.

The MDMD workshop targets researches  that concentrate on all aspects of managing data with mobile devices,  starting from "How to manage data on mobile devices?", over "How to  integrate mobile devices into information systems of a static behaviour?",  to "How to manage data in a purely mobile world?". Hence, we are  interested in client only-, client/server-, and p2p-approaches dedicated  to mobile devices and their specifics.

The overall goal of the workshop is to bring people from different fields together, exchange research ideas and results, and encourage discussion about how to provide efficient data management techniques for mobile devices and to understand the research challenges of such area.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Data management and energy consumption for mobile devices
  • Interfaces for data management on mobile devices
  • Database management systems for mobile devices; challenges, techniques and  theories
  • Caching and replacement techniques for mobile devices
  • Mobile query processing using semantic caching
  • Data management challenges, techniques and research directions of sensor nodes
  • Principles, theories, models, and challenges issues of context-aware and dependent data
  • Temporal, spatial, and mobile databases
  • Efficient cryptography and security methods for mobile devices; challenges and techniques
  • A secure access to corporate data with mobile devices
  • Challenges of detecting contextual information with preserving the privacy of mobile devices
  • Advanced software applications and tools for managing data with mobile devices
  • New tools, technologies, and platforms for disseminating data among mobile devices
