SCOPE:
The strong growth in  wireless communications and the ever increasing 
availability of mobile multi-purpose devices have created a  global 
computing environment that plays a key role in the daily activities 
of millions of people.  Users communicate, work, and confer using a wide 
range of devices all connected via an array of communication networks 
that provide voice and data access regardless of geographic position.
This infrastructure aggregation presents a number of challenges
especially 
when it comes to data-intensive applications: scale, variable and 
intermittent connectivity, provision of location-dependent applications, 
bandwidth/power consumption, device size limitations, and
multimedia delivery across hybrid networks.  Conventional issues 
in data management have to be thought and evaluated anew in this rapidly 
changing environment.  Non-traditional issues including semantics of
data, 
location-centric data services, broadcast and multicast delivery, 
data availability techniques, security of data, as well as privacy 
questions have to be addressed.
MDM'05 focuses on challenges and opportunities for data management 
and access technology in the evolving world of mobile, wearable, and
pervasive computing.


TOPICS OF INTERST:
* Theoretical foundations of data-intensive mobile computing
* Location and mobility semantics
* Data placement, caching, replication and relocation to support
mobility
* Data dissemination in mobile environments
* Data presentation, scripting and exchange languages
* Data management for ubiquitous computing
* Resource advertising and discovery techniques to support mobility
* Metadata management and exchanges
* Query processing and optimization for mobile users
* Transactions and workflows in mobile computing
* Middleware support for mobility
* Multimedia delivery in 3G mobile networks
* Web access and Internet applications using mobile devices
* Context-aware computing and location-based services
* Adaptation of user interface and content
* Mobile agent platforms and ubiquitous computing applications and
systems
* Operating system and network support for mobile devices
* Security and privacy issues for ubiquitous systems
* Location tracking of vehicles and goods 
* Interaction of mobile applications and sensor networks
* Quality of service issues for data-intensive services
* Adaptability and stability of pervasive computing systems
* Data mining for mobile application


SOLICITATION:
Unpublished research papers are sought; their length should not exceed 
8 pages in the camera-ready IEEE style.  Authors are invited to submit
