This is the eleventh 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). The 7th MobiDE was held in Vancouver, Canada (June 2008). MobiDE 2009 was held in Providence,
Rhode Island (June 2009). MobiDE 2010 was held in Indianapolis, Indiana (June 2010) and
MobiDE 2011 was held in Athens, Greece (June 2011).

The workshop will 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.
* energy-efficient techniques for mobile data management
* m-commerce
* mobile access and sensing with smart phones
* mobile agent models and languages
* mobile data management in the cloud
* 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
* mobile workflow management
* mobility-aware data mining and warehousing
* 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 paper presentations, time
will be allocated to open discussion forums, informal discussions or panels. In addition to regular papers, vision or work-in-progress papers that have
the potential to stimulate debate on existing solutions or open challenges are especially encouraged. Proposals for panels on newly-emerging or
controversial topics are also especially welcome.


Abstract Registration: Mon, February 20, February 27, March 5, 2012 (11:59pm PST)
Regular Paper Submissions: Mon, February 27, March 5, 2012 (11:59pm PST)
Notification of acceptance: Mon, April 9, 2012
Camera-ready version due: Mon, April 23, 2012
Workshop date: Sunday, May 20, 2012


The workshop proceedings will be published by ACM. Electronic versions of the papers will be included in the ACM DL and DiSC'12.

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 this web site.

Full research papers should be formatted in the ACM proceedings format and be at most 8 double-columned pages in 9pt font.

Accepted papers will also be presented in a plenary poster session for workshop papers in the SIGMOD program. During this session,
workshop authors who have registered for the main conference are given the option of presenting their work to the SIGMOD conference
audience. Participation in the poster session is optional.
