The First IEEE International Workshop on
Engineering Mobile-Based Software and Applications (EMOBS07)

Call for Paper (pdf)

in conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC 2007, Beijing, July 23-27, 2007


The wide deployment of wireless networks and mobile technologies and significant increase of the number of mobile device users have created a very strong demand on various wireless-based mobile-based software application systems and enabling technologies. This provides many new business opportunities and challenges to wireless and networking service providers, mobile technology vendors, content providers and solution integrators. Living in a wireless world changes and enhances people¡¯s life in many areas, such as mobile communications, wireless information sharing and learning, m-commerce, home environment, and entertainment. Today, business organizations and government agencies face with new pressure for technology update in network infrastructures and enterprise solutions to support wireless connectivity and mobility.

To meet the increasing demand on various reliable wireless-based software application systems, business people are looking for innovative ideas to create diverse mobile-commerce applications and service systems, and engineers are looking for cost-effective engineering methods and efficient solutions to build high-quality wireless-based software and application systems. Therefore, today studying and solving technical issues in engineering wireless-based software and application systems is becoming a hot research subject for academic researchers and the industry community. The major theme of this workshop is engineering high-quality mobile-based application systems to support mobile users anywhere at anytime.


The International Workshop on Engineering Mobile-Based Systems and Applications (EMOBS07) is the forum to bring together researchers, scientists, software architects, and industry professionals for discussing innovative ideas and engineering solutions to construct high-quality wireless-based software systems and applications. Using this forum, researchers and industrial professionals can exchange issues, challenges, and new ideas and solutions.

Authors are invited to submit original and research papers addressing engineering issues, challenges,solutions, and technologies in building wireless-based software systems and applications. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the members of the international program committee. Accepted paper will be included in the COMPSAC 2007 workshop proceedings (EI-Index) published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
