13 - 16 JUNE, 2016 / PORTO, PORTUGAL


The Mobile Data Management series of conferences first debuted in December
1999. Since inception, it has established itself as a prestigious forum to
exchange innovative and significant research results in mobile data
management. Comprising both research and industry tracks, it serves as an
important bridge between academic researchers and industry researchers.
Along with the presentations of research publications, it also serves as a
meeting place for technical demonstrations (Demos), workshops, advanced
seminars, panel discussions as well as PhD forum and Industrial forum to
cater PhD students and industrial developers.

The scope of the conference has continuously broadened to cover all aspects
of mobility, including wireless communications, portable and tiny devices,
and geo-location of users and data, and emerging areas like internet of
things and cyber-physical systems.

MDM, from 2011, has been an IEEE Computer Society conference, sponsored by
the Technical Committee on Data Engineering (TCDE).

Porto is Portugal's second largest city and is the capital of Northern
region. Lightly populated at around 300, 000 dwellers, the city is built
along the hills overlooking the Douro river estuary and it is one of the
UNESCO's World Heritage. The city is varied architecturally with a mix of
medieval and modern buildings co-existing side-by-side.

MDM 2016 features a strong technical program following a highly rigorous
and competitive selection process that includes 20 regular and 15 short
research papers, 4 industrial papers, and 12 demos. In addition, the
program has 3 keynote lectures, 3 advanced seminars and a panel discussion
