Welcome to PMMPS '10
Helsinki, Finland, May 17, 2010.
The International Workshop on Programming Methods for Mobile and Pervasive Systems (PMMPS) is intended to bring together researchers in programming languages, software architecture and design, and pervasive systems to present and discuss results and approaches to the development of mobile and pervasive systems. The goal is to begin the process of developing the software design and development tools necessary for the next generation of services in dynamic environments, including mobile and pervasive computing, wireless sensor networks, and adaptive devices.
Potential workshop participants should submit a paper on topics relevant to programming models for mobile and pervasive systems. We are primarily seeking short position papers (2–4 pages), although full papers that have not been published and are not under consideration elsewhere will also be considered (a maximum of 10 pages). Position papers that lay out some of the challenges to programming mobile and pervasive systems, including past failures, are welcome. Papers longer than 10 pages may be automatically rejected by the chairs or workshop committee. From the submissions, the program committee will strive to balance participation between academia and industry and across topics. Selected papers will appear on the workshop web site; PMMPS has no formal published proceedings. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in an appropriate journal (under negotiation).
Both new ideas and critical evaluation of earlier approaches are welcome.
Roy Campbell (UIUC) will be the keynote speaker at the workshop.
At the request of some authors, we have extended the deadline to Wednesday March 3.
