In recent years, the massive use of mobile applications 
deeply influences the way people go about their daily 
life. The number of available mobile applications has 
grown enormously since the establishment of app stores and 
marketplaces that enable users to download and seamlessly 
install apps. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing and 
include diverse capabilities such as GPS, cameras, 
wireless communications on many frequencies and 
bandwidths, a variety of on-device memory and disk 
capacities, and various sensors.

Innovative mobile services and exciting mobile 
applications are emerging as a result of the ingenious use 
of these technologies. Consequently, the development of 
mobile applications has also been growing at a fast pace, 
presenting new challenges to Software Engineering. When 
running on mobile platforms, modern applications need to 
scale on-demand, according to the hardware capabilities 
and user preferences. Developing versatile and robust 
mobile applications requires formally grounded methods, as 
well as advanced practices and tools.

MobileSoft aims at providing innovative contributions to 
the research and development of novel approaches to the 
design, development, validation, execution and evolution 
of mobile applications. These include architecture 
techniques relating to platform complexity; improved 
refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic 
languages; developing applications in multiple languages; 
and testing and verification techniques for applications 
that run on different devices.

We welcome contributions related to mobile software 
engineering. Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Development environments and tools
* Testing, maintenance, verification and evolution
* Patterns, frameworks, and product lines
* Refactoring, restructuring, and renovation
* Program transformation and optimization
* Empirical studies and metrics
* User experience and new input devices
* Hybrid versus native applications
* Agile or model-driven development
* Application and system security
* Cloud support and scalability
* Static and dynamic analysis
* Debugging techniques and tools
* Programming languages
* Mobile programming and software engineering education 
and training
* The mobile role in the context of Internet of Things
* Mobile apps connected to wearable devices

We solicit contributions of research papers (up to 10 
pages), short papers (up to 4 pages), and experience 
report papers (2 pages). Short papers can be industrial, 
emerging ideas, or demonstrations. Your submission must 
conform to the ACM Formatting Guidelines 
( Submit your 
paper in Adobe PDF via EasyChair 
Accepted papers will be published in the conference 
electronic proceedings and in both ACM Digital Library and 
IEEE Digital Library.
