Call for Papers
The Third International Workshop on Mobile Development Lifecycle
(MobileDeLi 2015)
***Monday, Oct. 26, or Tuesday, Oct 27 (Exact date will be posted later.)
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

Co-located with the The ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming,
Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH)
October 25-30, 2015 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

Our excellent keynotes will be given by:
- Robert C. Seacord (CERT, Carnegie Mellon University)speaking on "Mobile
security"; and
- One more keynote speaker (IBM) with details to be posted soon

Mobile application usage and development is experiencing exponential
growth. According to Gartner, by 2016 more than 200 billion total apps will
have been downloaded. The mobile domain presents new challenges to software
engineering. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing, including diverse
capabilities enabled by GPS, sensors, and other input modes. Mobile
platforms are rapidly changing and include diverse capabilities such as
GPS, cameras, multiple input modes, wireless communications on many
frequencies and bandwidths, a variety of on-device memory and disk
capacities, and various sensors. Applications must function on a wide range
of platforms.

Mobile applications must be elastic and scale on demand according to the
hardwareís abilities. Many applications support and use third-party
services, requiring application development to include effective security
and authorization processes for those dataflows. Bring your own device
(BYOD) policies offer new security challenges, including guarding against
data leaks on behalf of both employer and employee data privacy.

Efficient development and optimization of secure mobile applications
requires new tools and practices that relate to the complexity at hand,
such as improved refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic
languages; 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 to further research in the
mobile development area.

MobileDeli's main objective is to develop and cultivate a vibrant research
community of researchers and practitioners for sharing work and leading to
further research in the area of mobile software development. Participants
at MobileDeli will help 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 discuss 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 applications
* 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
