Mobile apps and smartphones are only one instance of today’s mobile computing technologyFrom a systems and software architecture perspective, 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. In these systems the mobile device is not simply a “unit” but rather a “node” that is part of a much larger system. The impact that mobility has on software architecture and how the software architecture research community can help address many relevant issues will be discussed in the Workshop on Architecting Mobile-enabled Systems (AMeS), thus providing new insights on the key challenges faced by architects of mobile-enabled systems. The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 11th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture (WICSA 2014), April 8, 2014 in Sydney, Australia.
