 Dear Colleague,

* This call has been sent to multiple relevant mailing lists. We      *
* apologize in case you receive it multiple times.                    *

We cordially invite you to submit to one of the two scientific venues:
a special issue of the open access journal "Computers" by MDPI (Aaron
Quigley is the editor-in-chief) on security in ubiquitous computing,
and MoMM 2013, the 11th conference on advances in mobile computing and

* The journal issue would be a good outlet for mature work that might
span multiple conference papers, with the advantage of this journal that
publication can be done rapidly after the peer review, i.e. within 9
months from now on or earlier depending on the time of submission.

* The conference has a wider focus than "only" security in
ubiquitous/mobile computing and spans most topics around mobile
computing and mobile multimedia. Proceedings for full and short papers
as well as demonstrations will be in ACM, and the conference itself will
be in December in Vienna (i.e. easy to reach).

We heartily invite you and your group to consider submitting to one or
both of these venues. If possible, a short notification that you plan to
submit would help in preparing the respective review processes
(pre-assigning reviewers for easier balancing of review load).

==========================================================         C A L L F O R P A P E R S The 11th International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing and Multimedia                    (MoMM2013)               in Conjunction with The 15th International Conference on Information Integration and          Web-based Applications & Services                     (iiWAS2013)               2 - 4 December 2013                 Vienna, Austria          email: [log in to unmask] **** IMPORTANT DATES ***** 15 July 2013: Full Papers (10 pages), Short papers, Demos and work in progress (4 pages) 22 September 2013: Acceptance Notification 10 October 2013: Camera-Ready Papers and Authors Registration 02–04 December 2013: Conference Dates ***** Publication ***** ALL accepted MoMM2013 papers will be published by ACM International Conference Proceedings Series and the supplemental proceedings and indexed appropriately in all major indexes. Selected high-quality papers will be invited to be published, after revision and extension, in special issues of international journals and in a book in the Book Series: Atlantis Ambient and Pervasive Intelligence published by Springer. **** Scope ***** A vast variety of multimedia services like voice, email, instant messaging, social networks, mobile payment and transactions, mobile video conferencing, or video and audio streaming has already shaped the expectations towards current mobile devices, infrastructure, and services. Within the last five years, mobile multimedia has become the accepted standard, driven by developments in end-user devices, radio networks, and backend services. However, many open research questions remain, from limited battery life to heterogeneous data types, increases in quality of service, context-aware adaptation to the environment, or the ever-present security and privacy issues. MoMM2013 is the 11th in the series of the highly successful International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing and Multimedia. Recently, MoMM has been held in Bali (2012), Ho Chi Minh City (2011), Paris (2010), Kuala Lumpur (2009), and Linz (2008). This year, Vienna will host MoMM2013. The MoMM conference series has provided opportunities to researchers, graduate students, and industry practitioners to address recent research results and current industry practices in the area of mobile computing and multimedia. We invite three types of submissions: Full Technical Papers, Short Position Papers, and Demonstrations. A Full Paper should provide solid conceptual and theoretical foundation and substantial support for its results and conclusions as a significant contribution to the field. A Position Paper is not expected to be theoretically or empirically thorough, but represents an earlier stage of work. Examples are demonstration or prototype work, preliminary user studies, or work in progress, i.e. a report on the latest emerging ideas, approaches, methodologies, systems and application scenarios. A demonstration is intended to showcase novel concepts and innovative technologies which are at advanced stage and have already been implemented in working prototype systems. The informal setting of the demonstration session encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about presented work, while the accompanying short paper should describe the scientific aspects, concepts, or methods driving the hands-on demonstration. Accepted papers and demonstrations from the three categories will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. ***** Topics ***** Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 1. Mobile Platforms Track - Mobile software architectures, systems, and platforms - Operating system and middleware support for mobile computing - Mobile network traffic engineering, performance, and optimization - Wireless and mobile network management and service infrastructure - Wireless communication technologies (GSM/UMTS, WiMAX, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.) - Mobility and location management - Integration and interworking of wired and wireless networks - Distributed systems aspects of mobile computing - Localization and tracking - Transaction processing in mobile environments - Security and privacy of mobile/wireless systems - Security and privacy of mobile/wireless protocols - Security of mobile end-user devices - Energy efficiency in mobile systems - Approaches, and technologies for dealing with big data in mobile computing - Integration of cloud computing and mobile computing - Mobile services usage data analysis and pattern recognition - Regulatory, societal, legal, and ethical issues of mobile computing 2.
