         International Conference On Mobile Data Management (MDM '2002)

                     January 8 - 10, 2002, Singapore


We are rapidly heading towards a world in which the computing
infrastructure will contain billions of devices that are carried or 
worn by their users as they go through their daily routines.  
Such devices provide data access to mobile users as they move within 
buildings, cities, or across the globe. This new infrastructure 
presents tremendous challenges for data management technology 
including: huge scale; variable and intermittent connectivity; 
location-centric and location-dependent applications; bandwidth, 
power, and device size limitations; and multimedia data delivery 
across hybrid networks and systems.  Traditional data management 
technologies such as query processing, transaction management, 
workflow, business process management and metadata management must
all be reevaluated in this emerging environment.  Furthermore, 
non-traditional issues such as semantics of mobile data, 
location-dependent querying, broadcast and multicast delivery and 
caching/pre-fetching techniques must all be addressed.  
This conference aims to investigate these and other issues, 
focusing on the challenges and opportunities for data management 
and data access technology in the rapidly evolving world of 
mobile computing.
