Call for Papers - Industry Track
7th International Conference on MOBILe Wireless MiddleWARE, Operating Systems, and Applications
December 12-14 2016 – Naples, Italy
The goal of the 7th International Conference on MOBILe Wireless MiddleWARE, Operating Systems, and Applications (MobilWare 2016) is to provide a forum for presenting and discussing high-quality research in the field at international level, involving practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds. MobilWare 2016 will thus foster research collaboration through focused discussions, interaction and exchange of experiences that will designate future research efforts and directions. Areas addressed by the conference include the advancement of software and middleware technologies in various mobile-related sectors for pervasive and ubiquitous computing.
The MobilWare Industry track provides practitioners and contributors from the industry and academia with an opportunity to publish experience reports of potential interest to the researcher and practitioner communities. Industry experience reports describe the stories and outcomes (positive or negative) of developing, evaluating or deploying software engineering technologies, ideas, practices, tools, processes, or methods in an industrial setting. The submission should include information on the setting, provide motivation, explain the events leading to the outcomes, including the challenges faced, summarize the outcomes, and conclude with lessons learned, take-away messages, and advice based on the experience described and lessons learned. At least one contributing author must be from industry.
Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). We reserve the right to exclude papers accepted but not presented from the conference proceedings submitted for archiving and indexing. Authors will be able to present and discuss their experiences at the conference. Presentations are highly targeted to give a clear picture about a product or project that both industry and research community can cooperate on, in order to improve or commercially exploit it.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
New middleware concepts for mobile devices
Mobile middleware enabling machine-to-machine communication
Mobile crowdsourcing and people-centric collaborative sensing
Big data and cloud computing scalable processing of mobile sensors-generated datastreams
Smart space/city middleware and applications
