INVITATION FROM THE CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS|
We invite you to The First International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications, and Services (MobiSys 2003). This conference is an exciting new forum for presenting the best cutting-edge research on supporting, enabling, and coping with mobility in systems software, applications, and services. MobiSys 2003 represents some of the most original and important results in this area, and we believe you will find it both interesting and useful.
We received a large number of innovative and high-quality submissions from authors around the world and have put together a program of papers that is broad, lively, and full of practical value. The program covers many topics, including security, location management, application support, mobile architectures, sensor networks, energy management, analysis of mobile networks, application mobility, and a variety of interesting systems techniques for solving mobility problems.
The conference will begin with a full day of technical tutorials taught by expert technologists. Courses include: An Intro to Wearable Computing, Mobile Networking, 802.11 Wireless Network Security, and Programming Wireless Sensor/Effector Networks of TinyOS Motes.
MobiSys 2003 also features a combined demo and poster session for presentation of demos and early-stage research, an evening panel session for more debate targeting the state of the art in mobile systems, Birds-of-a-Feather Sessions for informal discussions among colleagues of similar interests, a luncheon speaker, and a keynote address by one of the luminaries in our field: Bob Brodersen of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center and the University of California at Berkeley.
In summary, we believe this first MobiSys conference offers a productive and exciting program, and we hope you will join us May 5-8, 2003 in San Francisco.
