Scope (Mobile Software Engineering Track)

We are organizing the Mobile Software Engineering (MSE) track for the first time, as part of the India Software Engineering Conference (ISEC). The number of smartphones in the world is increasing at a dramatic rate. India has nearly 960 million mobile phones and more than 173 million mobile internet users. Many users are switching from feature phones to smartphones. This gives a tremendous scope for development and use of mobile applications.  Developing robust, scalable, innovative, green, secure mobile applications requires advanced environments, tools, techniques, and processes.

We solicit contributions in the following areas of mobile software engineering but not limited to the following Topics: 

  • Development of Mobile Apps
  • Mobile application development Environments and Tools
  • Agile or Model driven development for mobile
  • SDLC for Mobile Apps
  • Mobile and Touch programming languages
  • Engineering quality attributes like security, privacy, and availability for Mobiles
  • Performing, Energy Efficient, resource aware app development
  • Analysis and Re-engineering of Mobile Apps
  • Testing and Quality Assurance
  • Empirical studies, case studies and industry experiences
  • ​Applications of Mobile Apps
  • Mobile for Finance, Health care
  • Mobile commerce, Enterprise, Others
  • Apps for Fitness, Travel & Hospitality, Social
  • Innovations, Emerging areas
  • HCI aspects of/for Mobile Applications
  • Mobile Middleware
  • Social Mobile Analytics
  • Internet of Things for Mobile
  • Wearable devices and Apps for Wearable devices
  • Mobile Cloud computing, Code Offloading
  • Emerging markets for Mobile Apps

Submission Details

Submissions should contain original research and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. The format of the papers should confirm to the ACM guidelines available at ACM publications link. Paper submissions are to be made ONLY using the EasyChair link.This year, we invite papers submissions under two categories: 

Regular Papers which can be research or experience papers should not exceed 11 pages, 10 pages for the main text (including figures, appendix etc) and 1 page for references in standard ACM format.

Fast Abstract, maximum of 1 page that should include a short, crisp description of the talk contents, why it is interesting to MSE participants and possible pointers to relevant material. In addition, a short bio of the speaker is required (can be beyond the 1 page limit). The talk can be about emerging ideas, new/innovative environment, or an interesting tool in the mobile world. Fast abstracts will be evaluated for its novelty and potential interest to the audience. The PC may accept conditionally, interact with the authors and after refinements of the abstract, provide the final decision of accept or reject. The author needs to finally submit a 1-page extended abstract of his/her talk
