    Call for Workshop Proposals

    The 20th IEEE Conference on Mobile Data Management (IEEE MDM 2019)


    Hong Kong

    June 10-13, 2019

    Sponsored by The IEEE Computer Society


    The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in 1999, has established itself as

    a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results

    in mobile data management. The conference provides unique opportunities to bring

    researchers, engineers, and practitioners together to explore new ideas, techniques,

    and tools, and exchange experiences.

    MDM 2019 aims at providing specialized workshops where researchers and practitioners
    will have an opportunity to explore in a more focused manner, the specific interests
    of mobile data management. In addition to sharing experience, workshops are intended
    to provide a fertile ground for discussing possibly-controversial ideas.

    We invite proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with MDM 2019 - tentatively
    scheduled to take place on June 10 - as preamble to the main conference. An important
    aspect that potential organizers should take into consideration is precisely the
    formatting - both in terms of scope and presentations' organization - so that the main
    objectives identified above are catered to.

    All accepted workshop papers will be published through IEEE Computer Society and the
    length of a regular workshop papers is limited to 6 pages - however, the organizers
    may accept even shorter papers with prior notice to the workshop chairs.

    Workshops Guidelines

    Upon notification of acceptance of the proposal, workshop organizers are required to:

    mailing lists
    - Manage the reviewing process, both in terms of coordinating the PC members and
