Margaret H. Dunham, Birgitta König-Ries, Evaggelia Pitoura, Peter Reiher, and Can Türker. 04441 Executive Summary – Mobile Information Management. In Mobile Information Management. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 4441, pp. 1-6, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2005)


From October, 25th until 29th , 2004, a Dagstuhl seminar on mobile information management took place. The seminar was attended by 34 researchers from Europe and North America with backgrounds ranging from database systems, mobile information systems, geographic information systems and business informatics to wireless networks and security. The goal of the seminar was to bring together researchers, especially from the area of databases and information systems, to identify open problems and new challenges in data, service, and user management in mobile information processing environments. We are particulary interested to provide a forum for discussing the consequences of the mobility of users and devices on today's and future data management systems. The first aim of this discussions was to clearly identify these consequences. The second and more challenging aim was to determinate where existing solutions can be applied, where mobility raise truly new challenges, and which of these challenges are there to last.
