 Call for Papers

The Second International Workshop on Software Development Lifecycle for 
Mobile (DeMobile 2014)
Nov  17, 2014
Hong Kong 
Co-located with FSE http://fse22.gatech.edu

Our excellent keynotes will be given by
Yannick Pellet Vice President of the Advanced Software Platform Lab at 
Samsung Research America 
Greg Truty, IBM Distinguished Engineer and Chief Architect, IBM Mobile 
Platform, IBM Software Group 

Mobile application usage and development is experiencing exponential 
growth. According to Gartner, by 2016 more than 300 billion applications 
will be downloaded annually. The mobile domain presents new challenges to 
software engineering1. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing, including 
diverse capabilities as GPS, sensors, and input modes. Applications must 
be omni-channel and work on all platforms. 
Activated on mobile platforms, modern applications must be elastic and 
scale on demand according to the hardware abilities. Applications often 
need to support and use third-party services. Therefore, during 
development, security and authorization processes for the dataflow must be 
applied. Bring your own device (BYOD) policies bring new security data 
leaks challenges. 
Developing such applications requires suitable practices and tools e.g., 
architecture techniques that relate to the complexity at hand; improved 
refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic languages and 
polyglot development and applications; and testing techniques for 
applications that run on different devices.
This workshop aims at establishing a community of researchers and 
practitioners to share their work and lead further research in the mobile 
development area.

Goal of the Workshop
The workshop has several goals. First, we want to develop and create a 
vibrant research community of researchers and practitioners for sharing 
work and leading further research in the area of mobile software 
development. Second, we want to identify the most important research 
problems in the mobile application development space.
The workshop also has a set of specific technical goals:
* Investigating new directions of model-driven development in the context 
of mobile software development 
* Examining the lifecycle of mobile software development and how it 
relates to the software engineering lifecycle
* Exploring and evaluating existing techniques, patterns, and best 
practices of mobile software development
* Bringing together people from both academia and industry to talk and 
learn about real-world problems facing mobile software engineering

The topics include, but are not limited to:
* Mobile development environments and tools
* Mobile testing
* Agile development for mobile applications
* Empirical studies and metrics
* Maintenance and evolution
* Mobile patterns, frameworks, and product lines
* Mobile software refactoring, restructuring, and renovation
* Mobile program transformation and optimization
* Practice and experience reports
* Management of mobile applications
* User experience of mobile applications 
* Hybrid versus native applications
* Model-driven development for mobile 
* Application security
* Mobile operating system and middleware security
* Secure application development methodologies 
* Cloud support for mobile security
* Static and dynamic analysis of mobile applications
* Mobile optimization debugging techniques and tools
* Research challenges in mobile software engineering

Submission Guidelines
We solicit contributions of three types: 
1. Research papers up to 8 pages that describe original work in the area 
of mobile software engineering. Since we wish to create a vibrant 
significant community, we will not have official proceedings thus accepted 
authors will be able to submit their work to other venues. 
2. Short papers up to 4 pages of emerging ideas and on research in 
3. Extended abstracts up to 2 pages on in-practice experience. 

Your paper must conform to the ACM format (
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates).  Submit your 
paper in Adobe PDF via EasyChair 
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=demobile14 ).

Important dates 
* Paper submission: July 1, 2014
* Notification of acceptance: August  3th, 2014
* Camera-ready submission: August  15, 2014
