The 25th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

Mobile Database Systems Track

March 22 ~ 26, 2010, Sierre, Switzerland

2010 SAC

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) is the primary Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP) annual conference. It has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world to interact and present their work for the last twenty four years. For more details, please visit The conference proceedings will be available online through the ACM Digital Library.


Mobile computing is gaining immense popularity these days due to an increase in the information on demand while moving. Also, the use of mobile devices (e.g., laptops, cell phones, PDAs, etc.) will rapidly increase in the future as more applications for the mobile systems are being developed. A mobile database is a database that can be connected by a mobile computing device over a wireless network and that enables users to exchange mission-critical data anytime, anywhere. The Mobile Database Systems (MDS) track aims at providing academic researchers and industry practitioners with a forum to discuss various aspects of the mobile database systems. The MDS track reflects the areas of applications as well as fundamental paradigms of mobile database systems. In particular, we have a special focus on Developing Robust Mobile Database Systems as the theme of this year.


Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

         Mobile Database Architecture

         Mobile Database Software

         Mobile Database Applications

         Mobile Database Synchronization & Replication

         Concurrency Control in the Mobile Database Systems

         Transaction Management in the Mobile Database Systems

         Recovery Schemes in the Mobile Database Systems

         Wireless Information Broadcasting

         Security and Privacy


Prospective authors are invited to submit their paper(s) in electronic format via eCMS at the following website: The paper must be an original material that has not been previously published and that should not be longer than 8 pages. It must be formatted in PDF or PostScript (PDF preferred). Also, the paper must not contain the information about the author(s) and affiliation(s) so that it can be blindly reviewed. Each paper will be carefully reviewed by independent reviewers with expertise in the field. Paper selection will be based on the scientific originality, significance, and quality. Prospective authors must submit the final camera-ready version of their paper(s) upon the acceptance of their paper(s). There will be a charge of 80 USD per extra page if the final camera-ready is more than 5 pages long. The final camera-ready paper must follow the ACM SAC Proceedings Templates format.


Please be advised that all deadlines will be strictly enforced.
