Workshop on Smart Mobile Applications

Second International Workshop on Smart Mobile Applications (SmartApps’12)
in conjunction with
The Tenth International Conference on Pervasive Computing (PERVASIVE
2012) June 18 – 22, 2012 – Newcastle, UK

Important dates:
March 16, 2012, new Workshop position paper deadline
April 02, 2012: Notification of acceptance/rejection of position papers
April 20, 2012: Camera-ready version deadline

We solicit full technical papers which present previously unpublished,
original research. Papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the
TPC and additional experts from relevant research areas. Papers must be
formatted using the standard ACM template sig-alternate.cls
and must not exceed 6 pages in PDF format including everything
(references, figures, tables, appendices,…). The template is available
at Papers
must be submitted via the EDAS interface at:

Accepted papers will be included in the electronic Proceedings
distributed at the workshop. Depending on the quantity and quality of
accepted papers we will organize a special edition of a journal or book.

Mobile applications are rapidly developing and becoming more and more
important as mobile devices are becoming even smarter. They are computer
networked and user reconfigurable. A device can be seen as part of a
cloud or operate autonomously. It is a device, consisting of CPU,
storage and network access and has the intelligence to perform services
both reactive and proactive. It can also be seen as a part of a smart
environment, i.e. interact with a physical world consisting of sensors
and actuators, displays and computational elements that are connected
through a continuous network. However this type of service has severe
problems if it is to be adopted in the business area. Some aspects which
are not solved for the mobile domain include dependability, device
management, provability of intent and information filtering. Due to the
increasing computing capabilities and the increasing quality of hard-
and software of smartphones, we expect these problems to find solutions
in the next years and solicit any original scientific work which
addresses one of these unsolved challenges.

This one-day workshop intends to bring together researchers,
professionals and practitioners to discuss and address recent
developments and challenges for the design, operation and backend
integration of mobile applications for non-commercial Apps as well as
enterprise applications. Furthermore, one of the challenges is to bring
the different mobile platforms together and to have secure concepts for
additional services like location, payment, authorization etc.
