[AIM and SCOPE]
The tremendous advances in wireless communication and mobile 
computing technologies have created a new computing and 
communication environment that provides services anytime and 
anywhere for everyone. Such an environment enables users to 
access a wide range of services and applications using a large 
variety of mobile and ubiquitous devices (e.g., cell phones, 
handheld computers, and so on). In order to accelerate this 
trend in the future, further progresses of the researches on 
wireless and pervasive computing, especially on data management, 
are necessary.

Following the success of DMWPCs (2008 in Okinawa, Japan / 
2009 in Bradford, UK / 2010 in Perth, Australia / 2011 in 
Biopolis, Singapore / 2012 in Fukuoka, Japan), DMWPC 2012 aims 
to bring together practitioners and researchers from both 
academia and industry in order to have a forum for discussion 
and technical presentations on the current researches and future 
research directions related to this hot research area.

following areas:
 - Data mining for mobile applications
