Welcome to MDM 2011 in Luleå
The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in December 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile data management. The term mobile in MDM has been used from the very beginning in a broad sense to encompass all aspects of mobility - aspects related to wireless, portable and tiny devices. The conference provides unique opportunities for researchers, engineers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and to exchange experiences. As we progress into the next decade of the conference, we are witnessing improvements in sensing, tracking, and in the continued miniaturization of computing devices.
