Acceptance notification: June, 30 2011

Workshop date: October 12th, 2012

Scope

MobiCASE, the International Conference on Mobile Computing, Applications, and Services, is a confluence between academia and industry on mobile applications and services research. The conference will showcase cutting-edge mobile computing research, feature demos of industry's most exciting mobile applications and services, and engage participants in hands-on projects and tutorials. A series of technical workshops and tutorials will be held in conjunction with MobiCASE'12 to encourage the exchange of ideas between academia, industry, and government participants, as well as to provide a forum to discuss important topics in mobile computing. Workshop and tutorials will be held on the last day of the conference on October 12th, 2012. Researchers and practitioners are invited to organize workshops and tutorials at MobiCASE’12. Workshop organizers should invite contributions from the broader community on emerging trends, research challenges, opportunities and controversial issues in services and applications enabled, impacted and/or required by mobile computing, where a focused dialogue among participants may lead to interesting follow up research, empirical investigations or industrial practice improvement. Tutorials sessions, on the other hand, would take the form of presentations by the organizers or their invited speakers on recent developments in the focus topic.
