Recent advances in wireless communications and the proliferation of powerful mobile devices have enabled smart cyber-physical environments where people and devices can seamlessly interact and where mass-market users are willing to receive/contribute to a wide range of mobile services, everywhere and anytime. A key enabler of these pervasive ubiquitous environments is the advancement of software and middleware technologies in various mobile-related sectors, ranging from effective synergic management of wireless communications to mobility/adaptivity support in operating systems, from horizontal support to crowdsourcing in different application domains to dynamic offloading to cloud resources, only to mention a few.
* TOPICS OF INTEREST

- Big data from mobile sensors-generated datastreams
- Smart space/city middleware and applications
- Middleware for mobile cloud computing (e.g., seamless offloading)
- Novel mechanisms for wireless sensor, and home networks
- End-to-end architectures for ubiquitous service provisioning and deployment
- Synergic integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks
- QoS awareness, adaptation, and fault-tolerance of mobile services
- Opportunistic, delay-tolerant, and store-carry-forward techniques for mobile and wireless networking
- Location/context-dependent support and services
- Energy-efficient applications, services, and middleware
- Mobility and handoff management
- Human-computer interface and portable 3D graphics for mobile devices
- Modeling, simulation, and performance evaluation of mobile wireless systems and services
- Trustworthiness, security, and privacy of mobile and wireless systems
- Thin client technologies, Mobile Web APIs, BONDI, WAC, HTML5

* BEST PAPER AWARD
The program committee will designate one paper accepted to the conference as MOBILWARE 2013 Best Paper. The winner will be declared during the conference.
* TUTORIAL/WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
Proposals for Tutorials and Workshops are solicited. Potential Tutorial/Workshop organizers are requested to submit a three-page proposal in PDF format, including a biographical sketch of each proponent and a short bibliographic reference list, to the Tutorial&Workshop Chair by June 15, 2013. Accepted tutorials and workshops will be typically half-day long, with the possibility of full-day events only if adequately motivated. Proposal evaluation will be based mainly on proponents' expertise and tutorial/workshop relevance to the conference.
