There was a mailing list, firstname.lastname@example.org, including the workshop participants.
Some of the new issues concern the management of mutating communication channels for mobile object location identification, the design of mobile applications using object orientation, the specification of protocols allowing operations on a distributed mobile state, and the creation and reconciliation of replicas to support of disconnected operation.
The workshop consists of sessions. Each session begins with short presentations and ends with more general discussion of the objectives of the session. The presenters will be chosen among a subset of the participants (i.e., not everyone should expect to present their position paper).
Participation is by invitation only based on submitted papers. Priority is given to papers suitable for sparking discussions. There is a limited number of spaces available for active Ph.D. students. Such students should merely submit a short description of their background and a recommendation from their Ph.D. advisor (e-mail is OK) and attesting to the fact that the student is a full-time Ph.D. student.
