Welcome to MDM 2019, Hong Kong

The MDM series of conferences, since its debut in 1999, has established itself as a prestigious forum for the exchange of innovative and significant research results in mobile data management. The conference provides unique opportunities to bring researchers, engineers, and practitioners together to explore new ideas, techniques, and tools, and exchange experiences. The conference this year is hosted by Department of Computer Science of Hong Kong Baptist University.

Comprising both research and industry tracks, it serves as an important bridge between academic researchers and industry researchers. Along with the presentations of research publications, it also serves as a meeting place for technical demonstrations (demos), workshops, advanced seminars, panel discussions as well as PhD forum and Industrial forum to cater PhD students and industrial developers.

The conference focuses on research contributions in data management in mobile, ubiquitous and pervasive computing.

  • MDM 20-Year Influential Paper Award

    Towards Sensor Database Systems (MDM 2001)
    Philippe Bonnet, Johannes Gehrke, Praveen Seshadri

    Citation: This seminal paper modeled sensor databases as mixtures of stored data represented as relations and sensor data represented as time series. A sensor query formulated over a sensor database defines a persistent view, which is maintained and long-running during a specified time interval. This paper, describing the design and implementation of the COUGAR sensor database system, significantly influenced subsequent work on sensor data management. It has more than 1,000 citations from top conference/journals and top researchers.
