Associate Dean Martin Griss to Chair MobiCASE 2010

Dr. Martin Griss, Director of Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley and Associate Dean of the College of Engineering, will be chairing the 2nd annual MobiCASE Conference, to be held October 25-28, in Santa Clara, CA. The Second International Conference on Mobile Computing, Application, and Services, continues to provide great opportunities to researchers and practitioners, from both the academia and industry, to present and discuss their work on mobile applications and service provisioning.

Extensive research efforts in mobile computing have led to increased results in the consumer space. The ultimate goal of mobile computing is to build useful applications and services that meet people's needs. Based on this premise, the MobiCASE conference specifically focuses on application-layer research and development in mobile computing: applications, application management, and application services. The increasingly larger customer base that’s moving towards an almost all-mobile lifestyle is what compels the consumer space today: high-end mobile phones, high-bandwidth wireless networks, novel applications, and scalable software infrastructures. This focus is differentiates MobiCASE from other conferences.

“I’m excited to be part of a conference that focuses so much on real solutions and tangible results,” said Griss. “The CyLab Mobility Research Center partners with industry collaborators for this very reason, to create solutions for real needs. Carnegie Mellon’s strong reputation in research and innovative technology helps us lead the way in defining the way research can be done in the mobile computing space. MobiCASE gives us an opportunity to work with some of the brightest leading researchers and industry leaders in this area. I look forward to the collaborations that will be formed as a result of this conference.”

MobiCASE currently has an open call for papers and an open call for demos and posters. MobiCASE organizers seek novel submissions in all areas in mobile applications, services, and systems research above the transport layer (i.e. above TCP/IP or equivalent), with an emphasis on complete end-to-end solutions and their components.

The satellite Workshop on Mobile Security has an open call for workshop papers, and the satellite Workshop on Mobile Software Engineering has an open call for position papers.
