Second Call for Papers:

International Workshop on Smart Mobile Applications (SmartApps'11)

in conjunction with
The Ninth International Conference on Pervasive Computing (PERVASIVE 
2011) June 12 - 15, 2011 - San Francisco, CA, USA

Important dates:
Februar 4, 2011: paper submission deadline
March 11, 2011: author notification
March 25, 2011: camera ready version deadline

We solicit full technical papers which present previously unpublished, 
original research. Papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the
TPC and additional experts from relevant research areas. Papers must be 
formatted using the standard ACM template sig-alternate.cls
and must not exceed 6 pages in PDF format including everything 
(references, figures, tables, appendices,...). The template is available
at Papers 
must be submitted via the EDAS interface at:

Accepted papers will be included in the Electronic Proceedings 
distributed at the workshop. Depending on the quantity and quality of
accepted papers we will organize a special edition of a journal or book.


Mobile computing is a related area of pervasive computing. Mobile 
applications are rapidly developing and becoming more and more
important. They consist of software that runs on a smart phone or tablet 
and perform certain tasks for the user of the cellular phone. In this
way, the user can use the application in its personal situation and can 
take advantage of the mobile phone's capabilities, such as the
camera, positioning and navigation or network access.

Now, mobile devices are becoming even smarter. They are computer 
networked and user reconfigurable. A device can be seen as part
of a cloud or operate autonomously. It is a device, that consists of 
CPU, storage and network access and has the intelligence to perform
services both reactive and proactive. It can also be seen as a part of a 
smart environment, i.e. interact with a physical world consisting of
sensors and actuators, displays and computational elements that are 
connected through a continuous network.

Currently, smartphones with more advanced computing capabilities and 
connectivity than classic mobile phones offer more functionalities
and run smarter applications. Mobile platforms comprise an increasing 
number of different sensors such as photo sensors, accelerometers,
gyroscopes etc, thus allowing sophisticated contextualized applications. 
In addition, users as well as developers benefit from an increasing
number of market places and online stores for mobile applications. The 
concept of a mobile "app" that can be purchased via centralized
hubs is already very common among the growing number of users.

Specifically, we solicit original research contributions in the 
following areas:

* App concepts and technologies for different mobile platforms
* Context-Matching, Context-Aggregation and Reasoning
* Applications of Artificial Intelligence to Mobile Applications
* Mobile Social Networks
* Ensuring Privacy and Security for Enterprise Applications
* Cross-Platform Software Design and Development
