Call for Papers
  
22nd IEEE Conference on Mobile Data Management (IEEE MDM 2021)
http://mdmconferences.org/mdm2021

June 15 - 18, 2021 Toronto, Canada 

  
The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in December 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile data management. The term mobile in MDM has been used from the very beginning in a broad sense to encompass all aspects of mobility – aspects related to wireless, portable and tiny devices. The conference provides unique opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences.

Continuing its history, MDM 2021 seeks submissions of original research contributions at the intersection of mobile computing and data management. Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
- Mobile Cloud Computing and Data Management in the Mobile Cloud
- Data Management for Internet of Things (IoT) and Sensor Systems
- Data Management for Augmented Reality Systems
- Data Management for Connected Cars, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Smart Spaces
- Mobile Crowd-Sourcing and Crowd-Sensing
- Mobile Data Analytics
- Behavioural/Activity Sensing and Analytics
- Mobile Location-Based Social Networks
