ASE 2019
Sun 10 - Fri 15 November 2019 San Diego, California, United States

Mobile apps have penetrated into our daily life for a longtime, providing an unprecedented convenience for their users.A massive number of talents and engineers have been involved in the mobile industry to improve its ecosystem from many aspects. For example, security specialists aim to find potential vulnerabilities and malware to protect the mobile ecosystem from attacks. Software architects propose tons of technologies to optimise performance, facilitate mobile developments. Data analysts derive valuable information from the huge volume of mobile data for knowledge acquisitions and trend predictions

The international workshop on advances in mobile app analysis (A-Mobile) aims at bringing together international researchers and practitioners in the field of mobile app analysis to present and discuss emerging advanced techniques. To this end, we will welcome original articles on every aspect related to mobile apps analysis. For example, we welcome submissions providing (1) methodological and technical foundations of automated mobile app analysis, (2) experimental studies and industrial applications to mobile app analyses, and (3) new research perspectives based on mobile data such as blockchain and artificial intelligence technology.

Call for Papers

With this workshop, we seek for original and novel research papers as well as experimental studies on all theoretical and practical aspects of mobile app analysis. Areas of interest include but are not restricted to

  • Security and Privacy analysis of Mobile Apps
  • Energy and Performance Analysis of Mobile Apps
  • Evolution and Trend Analysis of Mobile Apps
  • Variants Analysis of Mobile Apps
  • Quality Analysis of Mobile Apps
  • Mobile Malware Analysis
  • Mobile Ads Analysis
  • Mobile App Developments
  • Automated Testing Technologies and Approaches
  • Mining App Repositories
  • AI-based Mobile App Analysis

Authors are invited to submit original articles presenting emerging results on advanced mobile app analysis. The articles must not exceed 6 pages including figures, appendices and references. Authors are also invited to submit short papers covering new ideas, visions (of the future), reflections (on the past), and tool demonstrations that must not exceed 4 pages including figures, appendices and references. Alternatively,authors interested to attend this workshop with short-talks are also invited to submit a talk abstract within 500 words,describing their results on advances in mobile app analysis.Submissions must conform to the ASE 2019 formatting and submission instructions: The submissions must come in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the IEEEConference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt font, LaTEX users must use documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). All the submissions will undergo a double-blind peer review. All accepted contributions will be published in the conference electronic proceedings.

For accepted papers, authors are required to prepare their final submissions for the workshop proceedings based on the suggestions provided by reviewers. At least one author need to present their paper during the workshop.
