*First International Workshop on Programming Methods for Mobile and
Pervasive Systems (PMMPS'10)
*Helsinki, Finland, May 17, 2010.*
Colocated with Pervasive 2010, the 8th International Conference on Pervasive
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. *Discussions of type
systems for mobile and pervasive systems are part of the parvenu for the
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).
Submission deadline: March 1, 2010.
Notification: March 29, 2010.
Final copy: April 12, 2010.
Workshop: May 17, 2010.
Both new ideas *and critical evaluation of earlier approaches* are welcome.
