Submission details

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 an extended abstract within 2 pages including figures, appendices and references, or a talk abstract within 500 words, describing their results on advances in mobile app analysis.

All the submissions must not have been published elsewhere or under review elsewhere when being considered for A-Mobile 2019.

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 IEEE Conference 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).
