IEEE MDM 2024: Call for Research Track Papers

The Mobile Data Management (MDM) series of conferences, since its debut in 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile data management. The conference provides unique opportunities to bring researchers, engineers, and practitioners together to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and exchange experiences.

Continuing its history, MDM 2024 seeks submissions of original research contributions in the intersection of mobile computing and data management.
