The advances in wireless communication technologies and the proliferation of mobile devices have enabled the realization of intelligent environments for people to communicate with each other, interact with information-processing devices, and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through various types of networks and systems everywhere, anytime. A key enabler of this pervasive and ubiquitous connectivity environments is the advancement of software technology in various communication sectors, ranging from communication middleware and operating systems to networking protocols and applications.

MOBILWARE, is dedicated to addressing emerging topics and challenges in various mobile wireless software-related areas. The scope of the conference is the design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of middleware, operating systems, and applications for computing and communications in mobile wireless systems. It aims to provide a high profile, leading edge forum for researchers, engineers, and standards developers to present their latest research, techniques, and experiences in the field of software technology for mobile wireless systems.


Original and unpublished research achievements in various aspects of middleware/operating systems/applications are solicited. Topics include, but are not limited to:
* OS/middleware for embedded systems, wearable networks, and personal area networks
* OS/middleware support for the integration of heterogeneous wireless networks
* Middleware for mobile computing
* Middleware for QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services
* Middleware for opportunistic networking in delay-tolerant mobile services
* Location-aware and context-aware mobile supports and services
* Mobility management and handoff management in heterogeneous integrated networks
* Location and tracking supports and services
* Mobility-aware wireless service discovery, management, and delivery
* Intelligent and mobile agent technologies for mobile systems and services
* Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices
* Middleware/applications for wireless sensor networks, vehicular networks, home networks, and P2P systems
* Modeling and performance of mobile wireless services (VoIP, gaming, P2P sharing, urban monitoring, …)
* Deployment and management supports for large-scale mobile services
* Policy, trust, security, and privacy issues for mobile wireless networks


Proposals for workshops/tutorials are solicited. Potential workshop/tutorial organizers are requested to submit a proposal in PDF format, including a biographical sketch of each proponent, to the Workshop/Tutorial Chair by December 1, 2008. Proposal evaluation will be based on proponents’ expertise and relevance of the subject matter.
