           8th ACM International Workshop on Data Engineering 
		for Wireless and Mobile Access (MobiDE'09)                      
			Providence, Rhode Island USA
                 (collocated with ACM SIGMOD/PODS 2009)

                         10 Year Anniversary



This  is the  eighth of a successful series of workshops that aims to
act as a bridge  between the  data management,  wireless  networking,
and mobile computing communities.

The  1st MobiDE  workshop  took  place in  Seattle  (August 1999),  in
conjunction with MobiCom  1999; the 2nd MobiDE workshop  took place in
Santa Barbara  (May 2001), together  with SIGMOD 2001; the  3rd MobiDE
workshop  took place  in  San Diego  (September  2003), together  with
MobiCom  2003; the  4th MobiDE  workshop was  held in  Baltimore (June
2005.  In 2006,  MobiDE was organized in Chicago,(June 2006). The 6th
MobiDE was held in Beijing, China (June 2007).  Last year's event took
place  in Vancouver,  Canada (June 2008). This year's event marks the
10-year anniversary of the workshop.

This year MobiDE 2009 is sponsored by ACM SIGMOD and held in cooperation
with  ACM SIGMOBILE (pending approval). Additionally, it is sponsored
by EU's Network of Excellence on Cooperating Objects.

As in the past 10 years, the workshop will continue to serve as a forum
for  researchers  and technologists  to discuss the state-of-the-art,
present their contributions, and set future directions in data management
for mobile and wireless access.

The topics of interest related to mobile and wireless data engineering
include, but are not limited to:

* ad-hoc networked databases
* consistency maintenance and management
* context-aware data access and query processing
* data caching, replication and view materialization
* data publication modes: push, broadcast, and multicast
* data server models and architectures
* database issues for moving objects: storing, indexing, etc.
* m-commerce
* mobile agent models and languages
* mobility-aware data mining and warehousing
* mobile database privacy and security
* mobile databases in scientific, medical, and engineering applications
* mobile peer-to-peer applications and services
* mobile sensor network databases
* mobile transaction models and management
* mobile web services
* mobility awareness and adaptability
* pervasive computing
* prototype design of mobile databases
* quality of Service for mobile databases
* static sensor network databases
* transaction migration, recovery and commit processing
* wireless multimedia systems
* wireless web

The workshop will be organized in a manner that fosters interaction and
exchange of ideas among the participants. Besides regular papers, we
will also consider vision, retrospective and work-in-progress papers
that have the potential to stimulate debate on existing solutions or
open  challenges. We additionally plan to accept a limited number of
demonstration papers where researchers and technologists will have the
opportunity to describe an innovative system or tool in the area of data
management for mobile and wireless access. We discourage the submission
of incremental papers. This year's program is also expected to feature
a keynote speech and a panel discussion on newly-emerging or controversial


Abstract Registration:             Wed, April 15th, 2009 (midnight EST)
Paper/Demo Submission:       Wed, April 15th, 2009 (midnight EST)
Notification of acceptance:     Fri, May 22nd, 2009
Camera-ready version due:    Mon, Jun 1st, 2009
Workshop date:                      Mon, Jun 29th, 2009


Manuscripts  in  the following  categories  will  be considered  for
publication in the ACM Proceedings of the 8th International Workshop
on Data Engineering for Wireless and Mobile Access:

* Regular papers  (max. 8  pages): The  submission should  describe
significant  theoretical and/or  experimental  contributions to  the
area of data management for mobile and wireless access.

* Demo  papers (max.  4 pages): The  submission should describe the
architecture, implementation and usage of innovative tools or systems
that fit the context of the workshop. The presentation of demo papers
will be conducted in a designated session during the workshop (in the
form of short presentations).

* Panel proposals (max. 2 pages): The submission should include the
panel  objectives  and the  panel organization (names, addresses and
background of potential panelists).

All of the submissions should be in PDF format and conform to the ACM
proceedings format (double-columned pages in 9pt font). Submitted papers
must not have been published or currently be under consideration for
publication at another venue.

All of the submissions will be handled electronically. Each paper will
be  reviewed by  at least  three members  of the  program committee.
Detailed submission information will be posted on the website of the

The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM. Electronic versions
of the papers will be included in the ACM DL, DiSC'09 and DBLP.
