AutoMobile paper accepted at MobiWIS 2014 in Barcelona

A joint paper written by researchers of Politecnico di Milano and Ecole des Mines de Nantes has been accepted at the MobiWIS conference, to be held in September 2014 in Barcelona, Spain.

The conference comprises a set of carefully selected tracks that focus on the particular challenges regarding mobile Web and innovative information systems in research areas such as, among others, Web Engineering, Service-Oriented Computing, Web of Things, Data and Knowledge Management, Cloud Computing, Security and Human-Computer Interaction.

The contribution of the AutoMobile paper¬†¬†proposes a model-driven approach to mobile application development based on the IFML standard. We propose an extension of the OMG’s Interaction Flow Modeling Language (IFML) tailored to mobile applications and we describe our implementation experience that comprises the development of automatic code generators for cross-platform mobile applications based on HTML5, CSS and JavaScript optimized for the Apache Cordova framework. We show the approach at work on a popular mobile application, we report on the application of the approach on an industrial application development project and we provide a productivity comparison with traditional approaches.
