<p class="MsoPlainText" style="text-align:justify"><span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family:&quot;Times&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Since 2009, MDM's PhD Forum has&nbsp; provided matriculated doctoral students and recent PhD graduates with an opportunity&nbsp; to present their dissertation
 research, including work in progress, in all areas of mobile data management. The key objective of the&nbsp; forum is to encourage the interaction among&nbsp; PhD students and researchers from academia, industry, and government. The 2015 event will be organized as an
 MDM&nbsp; poster session and&nbsp; extended abstracts will appear in the proceedings of the conference.

 extended abstracts. Submissions should be singled-authored while contributions of advisers and others may be acknowledged in the abstract. A peer-review process will ensure quality and relevance.
