Call for Submissions

Mobile Services-oriented Architectures and Ontologies (MoSO 2007)

at The 8th International Conference on Mobile Data Management 

TIME AND PLACE: May 11, 2007, Mannheim, Germany

Dr. Henry Tirri, Nokia Fellow, Professor
Theme of his talk: "MObile world 2015 and beyond"


All the papers should be submitted in electronic format (pdf version)

The theme of the workshop is the intersection of three major trends in

    * mobile computing becomes more and more important. Mobile portable 
      devices have outnumbered already traditional desktop computers and 
      will mould the view of computers future generations will have.
    * service-oriented computing is viewed by many analysts as the computing 
      paradigm of the near future. It allows for the dynamic integration of 
      functionality provided by different parties.
    * research on ontologies, in particular in connection with work on the 
      semantic web and semantic web services allows for machine
      description of functionality and for automatic interaction of devices
      the need for human involvement.

The proposed workshop investigates how mobile computing can benefit from 
service-orientation and ontologies and vice versa. The vision is to extend
typically rather limited capabilities of mobile devices by using services
by other devices, network providers or third parties. Adding ontologies to
scenario allows this extension to be transparent to the human user. Further, 
some high-end mobile telecom terminals can be called already multimedia 
computers due their programmability,processor speed, and gigabytes of
Already in the near future these devices could also utilize ontologies
locally during
service provisioning.  


Today, computers are changing from big, grey, and noisy things on our desks
small, portable, and evernetworked devices most of us are carrying around.
new form of mobility imposes a shift in how we view computers and the way we
with them. In developing countries like India and China ‘Mobile Internet’
become the only Internet a large portion of population will get access to.

Services offer the possibility to overcome the limitations of individual
devices by making functionality offered by others available to them on an
basis. Thus, using the service-oriented computing paradigm in mobile
will considerably enlarge the variety of accessible applications and will
new business opportunities in the mobile space by delivering integrated
across wireless networks. Network hosted mobile services will allow mobile
and third party mobile services provider to extend their businesses by
making their 
network services available to a broader audience (e.g. developers, service
etc.); device hosted service will allow great potential for big innovations
applications and services that can be provided by individual mobile device

These mobile services offer functionalities and behaviors that can be
advertised, discovered, and composed by others. Eventually, they will be
able to 
interoperate even though they have not been designed to work together. This
of interoperability is based on the ability to understand other services and
about their functionalities and behaviors when necessary. In this respect,
services can benefit from marrying the Semantic Web, which provides the
for the extensive usage of distributed knowledge, to be deployed for
modeling services 
and add meaning, through ontologies, enabling lightweight discovery and
of mobile services. The ability to appropriately combine mobility and
semantic grounded 
data sharing has generated and is continuously triggering challenging
questions in 
several areas of computer science, engineering and networking.

This workshop aims to tackle the research problems around methods, concepts,
languages and technologies that enable new opportunities in the mobile space
adoption, usage, and integration of mobile services and ontologies. Of
interest are the methodologies and technologies that would allow automatic
tasks to 
be performed with respect to mobile services and the use of ontologies in
this context.

This proposed workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry
addressing many of these issues, and promote and foster a greater
understanding of 
mobile service and ontologies and their potential in enabling new business
in the mobile space.


The following indicates the general focus of the workshop. However, related 
contributions are welcome as well. 

- Service-oriented architectures for mobile internet services
- languages and methodologies for describing mobile Service-oriented systems
- discovery and matchmaking of ontology based services in the context of 
mobile service-oriented architectures
- adaptive selection of services in mobile service-oriented architectures
- ontology management in mobile environments
- contracting and negotiation with ontology-based mobile services (service 
level agreements)
- approaches to composition of ontology based services in the context of
service-oriented systems
- invocation, adaptive execution, monitoring, and management of mobile
- interaction protocols and conversation models for mobile services-oriented 
- ontology-based security and privacy issues in mobile service-oriented
- applications of mobile service-oriented architectures
- analysis and design approaches for mobile service-oriented architectures 
and services
- reasoning with mobile services
- ontology-based policies for mobile service-oriented architectures
- tools for discovery, matchmaking, selection, mediation, composition,
and monitoring of services in a mobile world
- mobile service development
- ontologies in dependable service provisioning


The program will occupy a full day, and will include presentations of 
papers selected from the full papers category (see 'submissions' below). 

Please note that at least one author of each accepted submission must 
attend the workshop. The MDM 2007 conference formalities are applied 
for fees and respective organizational aspects. Submission of a paper 
is not required for attendance at the workshop. However, in the event 
that the workshop cannot accommodate all who would like to participate, 
those who have submitted a paper (in any category) will be given 
priority for registration.


Two categories of submissions are solicited:

(1) Full papers (up to 5 pages).
(2) Position papers (up to 2 pages).

All submissions should be formatted in the IEEE style. Formatting 
instructions and LaTeX macros are available on the IEEE computer society 

LaTex macros:

    * ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/IEEE_CS_Latex.zip

Formatting instructions:

    * ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct.doc
    * ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct.pdf
    * ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct.ps

All accepted full papers as well as all position papers of attendees 
will be published in post workshop proceedings in IEEE DL. Additionally, 
authors of selected papers will have the opportunity to submit extended 
versions of their papers for the upcoming MoSO journal issue.

All the papers should be submitted in electronic format (pdf version) 
using the link: http://www.easychair.org/MoSO2007/.
