We are rapidly heading towards a world in which the computing
infrastructure 
will contain billions of devices, which will interact with other
computing/communications devices that are carried or worn by users as
they go
through their daily routines. Such devices provide data access to mobile
users
as they move within buildings, cities, or across the globe. This new 
infrastructure presents tremendous challenges for data management
technology 
including: huge scale; variable and intermittent connectivity;
location-centric 
and location-dependent applications; bandwidth, power, and device size 
limitations; and multimedia data delivery across hybrid networks and
systems. 
Traditional data management technologies such as query processing,
transaction 
management, workflow, business process management and metadata
management must 
all be re-evaluated in this emerging environment. Furthermore,
non-traditional 
issues such as semantics of mobile data, location-dependent querying,
broadcast 
and multicast delivery and caching/pre-fetching techniques must all be
addressed. 
The ability to track/monitor people raises serious issue of security and
privacy. 
This conference aims to investigate these and other issues, focusing on
the 
challenges and opportunities for data management and data access
technology in 
the rapidly evolving world of mobile, pervasive, ubiquitous, invisible
and 
wearable computing.

Submission Information

Both research and industrial papers are solicited. Research papers must
be 
unpublished and not exceed 12 single-spaced pages. Industrial papers
must not 
exceed 6 single-spaced pages and should describe interesting technical
aspects 
of industrial applications, prototypes, experiences, and standards;
performance 
and design details are encouraged and papers only describing high-level
system 
designs are discouraged. Authors are invited to submit their papers 
electronically through the conference Web site at 
http://www.cs.duke.edu/mdm2004/ on or before June 10, 2003. PDF format
is 
preferred but postscript format is acceptable. Conference proceedings
will be 
published by IEEE Computer Society Press. We also solicit proposals for
panels 
and tutorials. Proposals must be emailed to the respective chairs by
June 10, 2003.
