Call for Contribution

Mobile Development Lifecycle (MobileDeLi)
October 28, 2013
Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
in conjunction with SPLASH 2013 2013

Mobile application usage and development is experiencing exponential growth. According to Gartner, by 2016 more than 300 billion applications will be downloaded annually.
The mobile domain presents new challenges to software engineering. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing, including diverse capabilities as GPS, sensors, and input modes.
Applications must be omni-channel and work on all platforms. Activated on mobile platforms, modern applications must be elastic and scale on demand according to the hardware abilities.
Applications often need to support and use third-party services. Therefore, during development, security and authorization processes for the dataflow must be applied. Bring your own device (BYOD)
policies bring new security data leaks challenges. Developing such applications requires suitable practices and tools e.g., architecture techniques that relate to the complexity at hand;
improved refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic languages and polyglot development and applications; and testing techniques for applications that run on different devices.
This workshop aims at establishing a community of researchers and practitioners to share their work and lead further research in the mobile development area.

We solicit contributions related to mobile software development. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Mobile development environments and tools
- Mobile testing
- Agile development for mobile applications
- Empirical studies and metrics
- Maintenance and evolution
- Mobile patterns, frameworks, and product lines
- Mobile software refactoring, restructuring, and renovation
- Mobile program transformation and optimization
- Practice and experience reports
- Management of mobile applications
- Event processing for mobile
- User experience of mobile applications
- Hybrid versus native applications
- Model-driven development for mobile
- Application security
- Mobile operating system and middleware security
- Secure application development methodologies
- Cloud support for mobile security
- Static and dynamic analysis of mobile applications
- Mobile optimization debugging techniques and tools
- Research challenges in mobile software engineering

We accept contributions of three types:
1. Research papers up to 8 pages that describe original work in the area of mobile software engineering.
Since we wish to create a vibrant significant community, we will not have official proceedings thus accepted authors will be able to submit their work to other venues.
2. Short papers up to 4 pages of emerging ideas and on research in progress.
3. Extended abstracts up to 2 pages on in-practice experience.

Your paper must conform to the ACM SIGPLAN Proceedings format ( Submit your paper in Adobe PDF via EasyChair

Authors will be able to decide if they wish to publish their work in the conference proceedings.

Important Dates :
- Paper submission: August 20, 2013
- Notification of acceptance: September 12, 2013
- Camera-ready submission: September 16, 2013
- The workshop day is on Monday, October 28, 2013
