********** Deadline Extended to June 26, 2005 **********

International Workshop on Plastic Services for Mobile Devices

*** held in conjunction with INTERACT 2005 ***

Rome, Italy, September 12, 2005

Submission of papers:		Jun 26th, 2005 (extended)
Notification of acceptance:	Jul  8th, 2005
Reception of final version:	Jul 15th, 2005
Publication of on-line proc.:	Jul 25th, 2005
Workshop:			Sep 12th, 2005

Nowadays, the availability of reliable connections through handheld 
mobile devices such as PDAs and smart phones and the enhancements of 
display quality, has introduced the possibility of accessing information 
and simple services from remote clients at any place anytime. The aim of 
this workshop, that rises within the MAIS project, is to bring together 
specialists from academia and industry working in the field of mobile 
computing and providing services that are mainly targeted for portable 
and little devices. All the aspects involved in this issue are welcome. 
That includes methods, models and tools for designing, executing, and 
evaluating applications that automatically or semi-automatically adapt 
to their context of use in terms of mobile devices, user profiles, and 
environments. Adaptation may consist in a remoulding and/or 
redistribution of the service functional core and/or presentation, 
depending on the available resources. The resulting service may be 
distributed among devices. Related aspects may range from devices 
characterization to efficient resources managements (e.g., devices and 
screens usage, precomputed components), including software architecture 
issues, multi-channel adaptation, adapted or new information 
visualization techniques for small displays, quality criteria and metrics.

Ideally, 15 to 20 participants will attend the workshop. Participants 
will be asked to submit either a position paper (6 pages maximum) or an 
unpublished research paper (10 pages maximum). A position paper 
expresses opinions and experience gained by the authors while a research 
paper presents more formal and scientific approach in details.

style (templates can be found both in word and latex format on the ACM 

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format at:

All submissions must be maximum 6 (six) or 10 (ten) pages in the 
required format. Authors are requested to prepare submissions as close 
as possible to final camera-ready versions for the workshop proceedings. 
The submission should clearly emphasize the discussion aspects relevant 
to the workshop. Members of the international program committee will 
review all submissions. For questions and comments, please contact the 
workshop co-chairs.
