International Workshop on the Engineering of Mobile-Enabled Systems (MOBS 2013) in conjunction with ICSE 2013, San Francisco, CA, U.S.A., May 25, 2013 http://www.sei.cmu.edu/community/mobs2013/ Registration for MOBS 2013 is open. Take advantage of early-bird rates until April 14, 2013.
Mobile apps and smartphones are only one instance of today’s mobile computing technology. RFID tags, sensor nodes, and computing-enabled mobile devices are all components of the current mobile computing paradigm. These devices are being integrated into enterprise systems and mission-critical systems as a way to collect data in the field. Unlike in previous paradigms, data is no longer a discrete piece of information, locally produced and distributed via servers. Data is also produced, stored and used in the field, shared between mobile and resident devices, and potentially uploaded to local servers or the cloud—a distributed, heterogeneous, context-aware, data production and consumption paradigm. From a systems and software engineering perspective, this means that mobile devices and sensors are being integrated into IT solutions and re-shaping the way that systems are built. We call these systems mobile-enabled systems. The goal of MOBS 2013 is to create a focal point and an ongoing forum for researchers and practitioners to share results and open issues in the area of software engineering of mobile-enabled systems.
