MCPT-2011 - The First International Workshop on
Mobile Computing Platforms and Technologies
February 6-11, 2011, Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, co-located with Eurocast 2011
**** Submission deadline: 31.10.2010 ****
**** Post-workshop proceedings in Springer LNCS ****

Mobile platforms and technologies surround us throughout our everyday
lives; billions of mobile phones and trillions of embedded mobile systems 
interact with each other and their users. The resulting scientific challenges 
are inherently interdisciplinary and encompass a multitude of specific fields,
including systems design, sensors and perception, interaction techniques,
networking and protocols, security and privacy, and low-level hardware

MCPT-2011, the First International Workshop on Mobile Computing Platforms
and Technologies, aims to bring together researchers and practicioners from
industry to present novel ideas and developments in mobile computing and
discuss their application to current and future platforms. With a focus on
scientific novelty, MCPT-2011 provides a forum to discuss technology and
platform issues with a specific focus on mobile aspects.

Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Frameworks, toolkits, and middleware for mobile systems
* Platforms for end user development
* Personalization of mobile devices
* Context and location awareness
* Computational perception and environmental sensing
* Augmented reality and mobile multi-modal interaction
* Mobile and spatial interaction techniques
* Ad-hoc and spontaneous networking
* Mobile group interaction
* Security and privacy issues specific to mobile computing
* Mobile trust and reputation systems
* Mobility in wearable computing
* Mobile hardware and communication technology
* Techniques for power management on mobile systems
* Evaluation and comparative reviews of mobile platforms

The submission process is split into two phases:

* Pre-workshop submissions are limited to two pages in Springer LNCS format
and should describe the core issues and results in the form of an extended
abstract. These submissions are reviewed by an international program
committee in terms of scientific novelty, technical soundness, and scope.
Accepted extended abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings
with an ISBN number.

* Post-workshop submissions are limited to eight pages in Springer LNCS
format. Based on the extended abstracts and the workshop presentations,
selected authors will be invited to submit full versions for final
publication in Springer LNCS post-conference proceedings. All selected
papers will be shepherded by program committee members.

Submission of extended abstracts

The submission is now open. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not
considered for publication elsewhere. Also, they must show a significant
relevance to mobile computing platforms and technologies. Only
electronic submissions in PDF format will be considered. The extended
abstracts must be two pages or less in size, including references,
figures and tables. Please send your submission directly to
[log in to unmask] Please submit your paper no later than October
31, 2010.
