The 7th Annual International Conference on Mobile Wireless Middleware, 
Operating Systems, and Applications
Special Annual Theme: "Mobile Middleware: Connecting Sensors, Clouds and 
Big Data"
10-12 November, 2014 -- Nanjing, China

Recent advances in wireless communications, the proliferation of 
powerful mobile devices and cloud services have enabled smart 
cyber-physical environments and mobile clouds where people and devices 
can seamlessly interact and mass-market users are willing to 
receive/contribute to a wide range of mobile services, everywhere and 
anytime, while interacting with massive amounts of big data.
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 domains 
to dynamic offloading to cloud resources as part of big data, only to 
mention a few. The middleware connecting sensors, clouds and big-data 
remains challenge.

*Conference topics
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- New middleware concepts for mobile devices
- New middlware to support rich space of networked sensor system
- Mobile middleware enabling machine-to-machine communication

- Big data from mobile sensors-generated data streams
- Middleware coupling with big data
- Middleware-aware big data platforms and services
- Data-intensive services for next-generation middleware
- Smart space/city middleware and applications
- Uncertain and imprecise information processing over middleware
- Mobile Middleware services for big data accesss and report generation
- 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  
- Synergic integration of heterogeneous wired and wireless networks

*Important dates
- Full Paper Deadline                     July 31, 2014
- Tutorials proposal Deadline       June 15, 2014
- Acceptance Notification              September 30, 2014
- Camera-ready Deadline               October 10, 2014

- For the first time, in 2014, the conference will be held in China - 
one of the world largest economy
- MobilWare is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a 
leading community-based organization devoted to ICT innovation advancements
- All accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and 
made available through its Digital Library, as well as in the ICST's own 
EU Digital Library (EUDL)
- Proceedings will be submitted for indexing in all major biblio 
indexes, e.g., Google Scholar, ISI, EI Compendex, Scopus, and many more
- Extended versions of selected best papers will be invited for magazine 
submission (special sections and fast review track) to IEEE IT Professional

*Paper Submission
All the papers, formatted according with the usual IEEE proceedings 
instructions, have to be submitted through the conference online system 
at: http://confy.eai.eu
Papers will be judged on originality, correctness, clarity and 
relevance. Submitted papers must be original work, and may not be under 
consideration for another conference or journal. Full details of 
submission procedures are available here.

*Best Paper Award
The program committee will designate one paper accepted to the 
conference as MOBILWARE 2014 Best Paper. The winner will be declared 
during the conference.

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, 2014. All proposals should be submitted by 
electronic mail to: Praveen.madiraju at mu.edu
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.
