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 

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.

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 
* 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
