A truly extended use of mobile computing technologies asks for effective software engineering techniques to design, develop and maintain mission- and business-critical applications over mobile environments. To be effective, these applications must endorse provisions that allow them to continue the optimal distribution of their service despite the occurrence of potentially significant and sudden changes or faults in their infrastructure and the surrounding environment. The main goal of this workshop is that of fostering exchange of ideas and lively discussions to reduce the gap between research achievements and industrial applications in the field of adaptive and dependable mission- and business- critical mobile systems and applications.


The main topics of the workshop include (but are not limited to):


  • Dependability and real-time adaptation requirements and related open issues for mobile systems;
  • Dependability measurement of mobile systems and services;
  • Design principles, models, tools and techniques for realizing dependable and adaptive mobile systems;
  • End-to-end approaches to the quality of experience of mobile services;
  • Mobile-enabled middleware mechanisms for heterogeneous wireless networks;
  • Middleware support for adaptation & dependability;
  • Context data provisioning and modelling, and context-based infrastructures;
  • Human-machine interaction and usability;
  • Multi-device systems and integration between heterogeneous software platforms and operating systems;
  • Architectures for resource and network monitoring and adaptation to networks conditions;
  • Cross layer adaptation;
  • Software Dependability in multimedia systems over wireless media;
  • Group communication and group membership services;
  • QoS control and component scheduling.
  • Standardization issues.
