17th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Data Management
Porto, Portugal, June 13 - 16, 2016

IMPORTANT DATES (deadline extended)

Abstracts due: Dec 22, 2015

The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in December 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile
data management. The term mobile in MDM has been used from the very beginning in a broad sense to encompass all aspects of mobility – aspects related to wireless, portable and
tiny devices. The conference provides unique opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to
exchange experiences.

We invite submissions of original research contributions and industrial papers as well as proposals for demos, panels and workshops.
A number of events (workshop, demos, panels, seminars, PhD forum, and special industrial forum) will be organized to cater for all academic activities, apart from research track
    - Workshops are for fast track publications of work-in-progress papers
    - Demos will present state of the art systems and prototypes
    - Panels will review current research activities and explore new frontiers
    - PhD forum is to encourage doctoral student participation
    - Industrial forum for companies to present their research and development technologies/systems.


We solicit research papers in areas related mobility, context and data. The topic of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
o       Mobile Cloud Computing and Data Management in the Mobile Cloud
o       Data Management for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Sensor Networks
