Welcome to the Second International Conference on Mobile Data Management (MDM2001). The conference serves as a forum for the exchange of technical ideas and research results in the areas of mobility and database management. This year, we have a very exciting program for MDM2001. Many quality papers were submitted to the conference. All of the submitted papers were - viewed by at least three PC members. Due to the limitations of the program schedule as well as the desire to organize the conference using a single track format, we selected only 18 papers for full presentation at the conference. As a result many excellent papers could not be accepted. The papers chosen for presentation span a large range of topics, from n- work protocol issues up to the semantics of mobile applications. The common theme of all these papers is their recognition of the central role played by data managementtechniques in the developmentof the emerging worldof mobile and wireless applications. We have loosely organized these papers into six areas: 1. DATA MANAGEMENT ARCHITECTURES, 2. CONTENT DELIVERY, 3. DATA BROADCASTING, 4. CACHING AND HOARDING, 5. COPING WITH MOVEMENT, 6. NETWORKS AND SYSTEMS ISSUES In addition to the researchtrack, we havesought to broaden the scope of the conference with an industrial session as well as poster presentations. Overall, the program strikes a comfortable balance between applied and theoretically oriented papers.
