    Fifth IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications


                               WMCSA 2003
                           October 9-10, 2003
                      Santa Cruz, California, USA


                            Call For Papers


                Hard Submission Deadline:  May 23, 2003
                 Notification to Authors: July 28, 2003


          Conference Web site:  http://wmcsa2003.stanford.edu



The Fifth IEEE Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications is
the latest in a series of high-quality, interactive forums for
discussion on all aspects of mobile computing systems and
applications. We solicit submissions that primarily focus on
applications, systems, and environments.  Submissions describing new
lower-level technologies are welcome if they focus on how the technology
is being used or integrated into a system or application.


WMCSA's small workshop format makes it ideal for presenting and
discussing new directions or controversial approaches, even if the work
is at an early stage, although even early-stage work will be expected to
provide some early validation of the feasibility of the approach.


We are particularly interested in the following topic areas:


Novel applications and environments for mobile and pervasive computing


  Mobile computing has extended to dovetail with work in pervasive and
  ubiquitous computing systems and environments.  The combination of
  domains brings challenges as well as opportunities for novel
  application scenarios.


Coordination, aggregation, and spontaneous interaction of devices and
applications


  Among the characteristics of mobile devices is their relatively simple
  functionality and lack of resources and computational power. To
  achieve significant tasks it is sometimes necessary to gather devices
  together into a cohesive whole. How can this be accomplished in an
  extensible and/or scalable way, considering the ad hoc nature of
  mobile systems and the limited interfaces and resources available at
  each node in a coordinated set? Do the solutions change when mobile
  devices and networks interact with the wired world, rather than as an
  island unto themselves?


Challenges unique to or exacerbated by mobility and pervasive computing


  Mobile and pervasive computing present new computer science challenges
  and bring some existing challenges into sharper relief.  The ease of
  collecting and storing information makes security and privacy concerns
  paramount.  Intermittent connectivity, limited battery life, and
  frequent association/dissociation between devices and the environment
  makes failure resilience and robustness a first-class concern.  The
  ability to use a mobile technology while performing other tasks,
  e.g. talking on a cell phone while driving, means that user
  "distractability" and the human experience of learning/using a new
  mobile technology may be key aspects of its design.


Papers should be 10 US letter pages or less, and should describe either
completed or ongoing work.  The conference proceedings will be published
by the IEEE and we hope to publish a digest of the workshop in a
relevant journal. As is customary, papers must not have been published
elsewhere and cannot be simultaneously under submission at another
venue.


To encourage an interactive atmosphere, attendance will be limited to
approximately 75 attendees. Authors of submitted papers and accepted
demo proposals will be given first preference, with others able to
register on a space-available basis.


A small number of graduate students will be granted a waiver of the
registration fee. Waiver proposal submission instructions will be posted
soon.


Demos


To further stimulate discussion, we welcome researchers who would like
to demonstrate working prototypes of their systems.  Instructions for
submitting demo proposals will be posted here soon.
