WORKSHOP SCOPEA truly extended use of mobile computing technologies asks for effective software engineering techniques to design, develop and maintain novel ubiquitous services with challenging dependa- bility requirements in highly heterogeneous and error-prone mobile environments. To overcome the intrinsic limitations of mobile devices and environments, a variety of research studies have produced methods and proof-of-concept prototypes for sup- porting non-critical applications. However, it is still unclear whether current solutions can satisfy the challenging adapta- bility and dependability requirements of the emerging mobile ubiquitous services, such as mobile commerce, wireless control of robots, healthcare computing, and video-surveillance.
Hence, it is becoming increasingly important: to devise con- ceptual models and paradigms for change tolerance; to propose mechanisms to model, design, and develop adaptive and dependable systems; to provide analytical and simulation tools to measure system ability to withstand faults and to optimally re-adjust to new environments; to develop scalable, maintainable, cost- effective middleware infrastructures able to support and ease the development of adaptive and dependable mobile ubiquitous services.
Building on the success of the last year event, this workshop aims at fostering exchange of ideas and lively discussions in order to reduce the gap between research achievements and industrial applications in the field of adaptive and dependable mobile ubiquitous systems. Researchers and practitioners are encouraged to participate with high quality papers able to identify open issues, to discuss the limits and/or advantages of existing solutions, or to propose original and innovative techniques for adaptive and dependable applications over mobile environments.
The main topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- Dependability & adaptation requirements, and open issues for mobile ubiquitous systems;
- Design principles, models, and techniques for realizing dependable and adaptive mobile ubiquitous systems;
- Context data provisioning and modelling, and context-based infrastructures;
- Human-machine interaction and usability;
- Multi-device and highly heterogeneous ubiquitous systems;
- Cross-layer adaptation techniques;
- End-to-end approaches to the quality of experience of mobile services;
- Autonomous systems for adaptation and dependability;
- Mobile-enabled middleware architectures and mechanisms for heterogeneous wireless networks;
- Dependability and scalability of web technologies to ubiquitous systems;
- Architectures for resource and network monitoring and adaptation to networks conditions;
- Dependability measurement of mobile systems and services.
DEMO COMPETITION, BEST PAPER, AND RELATED PRIZESA Demo Competition (sponsored by NOKIA) will be conveniently scheduled to provide authors with the opportunity to run live demonstrations of their research and to interact directly with ADAMUS and other WoWMoM attendees that will be required to vote for the best demos (See below for demos submission guidelines). Best demos will be awarded with special Nokia gifts based on their review scores, on-site voting results, and technical program committee evaluation.
The best full paper will be awarded as well with another Nokia gift, based on review scores.
The BEST DEMO PRIZE will consist of a Nokia N95 8GB multimedia computer (http://www.nseries.com/products/n95_8gb/).
The BEST PAPER PRIZE will be a Nokia N810 Internet Tablet device (http://www.nseries.com/products/n810/index.html).
NOKIA KEYNOTE TALKWe are proud to announce ADAMUS 2008 will open with a Keynote Talk by Franklin Reynolds, distinguished engineering fellow at the Nokia Research Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
FULL PAPER AND DEMO PROPOSAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINESADAMUS 2008 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. This year, ADAMUS seeks two different kinds of contribution: full papers and live demonstration proposals. Live demonstrations must be accompanied by a short demo proposal describing the demo and the related research activity.
- Full papers must be written in English and should not exceed 6 pages in IEEE proceedings style.
- Demo proposals must be written in English and should not exceed 3 pages in IEEE proceedings style.
- Demo Plans: Authors of all accepted demo proposals must also submit a Demo Plan including a short description of the demo (text, video, poster) and a short report on infrastructure needs (power, network, physical space needed).
Submission implies that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper. The selection process will involve peer reviews and reviews by program committee members.All papers and demo proposals will be selected for the workshop based upon their originality, technical soundness, and relevance to the field of adaptive and dependable mobile ubiquitous systems. Notification of acceptance will be sent to contact authors by March 17th, 2008. Authors of accepted papers will be requested to provide the camera-ready version of the paper by March 31st, 2008. Authors of accepted demo proposals will be requested to provide demo Plans by March 31st, 2008, as well as the camera-ready version of the short demo proposal paper by April 4th,2008.
All accepted papers (including both full papers and demo proposals) will be published on CD by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
