                     Mobile Computing and Applications Track
                 24th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing


                              March 9 - 12, 2009

                   Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa
                     Waikiki Beach, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

For the past twenty-three years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists,
computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from
around the world. SAC 2009 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest
Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by University of
Hawaii at Manoa and Chaminade University of Honolulu.

The research area of mobile computing has become more important
following the recent widespread drive towards wireless sensor networks,
RFID and location tracking technologies and their applications. The
availability of the high bandwidth 3G infrastructures, and the pervasive
deployment of low cost WiFi infrastructure and WiMAX to create hotspots
around the world serve to accelerate the development of mobile computing
towards ubiquitous computing. Together with the use of increasingly
powerful hardware handheld devices, many of which now equipped with
built-in Bluetooth and wireless LAN interfaces, the drive towards
integrated mobile computing infrastructure becomes mature. Emergence and
acceptance of programming standards like J2ME, SOAP/.NET, and different
software applications have broken the barrier for seamless
communications across devices. As mobile computing and its applications
involve inter-disciplinary research efforts, this is an appropriate
track for SAC, in order to draw upon expertise from different areas of
researches for better synergy. The unique characteristics and issues
present in a mobile computing environment have motivated diverse
research areas, spanning from protocols for mobile computing to
middleware services to facilitate better integration of mobile services
to existing network infrastructure, as well as effective information
representation, processing and visualization with small devices. This
track is dedicated to this exciting and evolving area of mobile
computing to draw upon research efforts and expertise from different
areas of researches for better synergy. We would like to bring forth not
only the core technologies driving the research, but also important
applied research and applications to realize the benefits of anywhere,
anyplace and anytime computing.

Papers are solicited for the following representative topic areas (but
not restricted to):

- adaptive computing
- caching and disconnected operation
- context-aware mobile computing
- data replication and reconciliation
- L-commerce
- location-aware applications
- M-commerce
- mobile agents
- mobile applications and systems
- mobile databases and transactions
- mobile device programming and applications
- mobile middleware services based on events, and object models
- mobile web access and web services
- pervasive computing
- RFID applications
- spatiotemporal data representation and processing
- visualization on handheld devices
- wearable computers
- wireless communication and networks
- wireless multimedia
- wireless sensor networks

Authors are invited to submit electronic copies of their original papers
(in postscript or pdf format) to the Conference via the SAC submission
system (eCMS) by August 16, 2008. If you have any inquiry about the
track, please contact with the Track Chairs.


Authors are invited to submit original papers the above-mentioned or
other related areas. Submissions fall into the following categories:

    * Original and unpublished research work
    * Reports of innovative computing applications in the arts,
      sciences, engineering, and business areas
    * Reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains
    * Reports of industrial experience and demos of new innovative systems

Program Committee members from renowned universities with strong
expertise in their respective areas will blindly review the submissions
to the track. Accepted papers will be published in the annual conference

Prospective papers should be submitted per track using the provided
automated submission system. Submission of the same paper to multiple
tracks is not allowed. For more information about submission guidelines,
please visit the SAC 2009 Website

One of the authors must be designated as the primary contact point to
receive the notification at the time of the paper submission. At least
one of the authors of the accepted paper must register for the
conference and present the paper. The accepted papers will be published
in the ACM SAC 2009 proceedings. It is probable that a set of selected
papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, would be accepted as
poster papers and be published as extended two-page abstracts in the
symposium proceedings. Submission must be received by Saturday, August
16, 2008.
