MobiSys 2006: Fourth International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications and Services

Uppsala, Sweden - The Fourth International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications and Services - MobiSys 2006 - June 19-23, is the premier conference on the design, implementation, usage, and evaluation of mobile computing and wireless systems, applications, and services. The MobiSys 2006 lineup includes the world's leading mobile and wireless systems researchers presenting their latest research on today's most debated mobile topics. The evening session of June 20 is dedicated to demonstrations of prototypes and to posters about work in progress.

Jointly sponsored by the two largest computer science professional organizations - ACM SIGMOBILE and The USENIX Association, in cooperation with ACM SIGOPS, MobiSys 2006, http://www.sigmobile.org/mobisys/2006/, fills a well-recognized need of the mobile and wireless community for a world-class conference that focuses on systems development, as well as analysis, and features original and important results in mobile systems research.

The keynote presentation will be given by Carnegie Mellon University Professor Daniel P. Siewiorek, the winner of SIGMOBILE's 2006 Outstanding Contributions Award "for pioneering and fundamental contributions to wearable and context-aware computing". The award will be announced and presented on Tuesday, June 20, 2006 during the opening ceremony.

In his keynote presentation, entitled "Lessons from Wearable Computing and Beyond", Prof. Siewiorek will review over 15 years of experience in developing and deploying wearable computers in domains as diverse as manufacturing, maintenance, operations, and medical monitoring leading to lessons that are not taught in the classroom.

The MobiSys 2006 technical program consists of 19 high-quality papers from authors around the world. These papers span a wide range of topics in mobile computing systems, applications and services and exemplify the "coming of age" of this field. Here is a small sampling of the papers being presented:

Early-stage research will be presented during a works-in-progress session, as well as a combined demo and poster session. The conference will also host a day of workshops including the ACM Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks.
