The modern Web is constantly connected to the Web and exploits it for a variety of professional and personal tasks. The use can be characterized as nomadic and using various mobile devices often simultaneously. The Web experience itself is expected to be enjoyable, of high quality and consistent across all mobile devices, regardless of the purpose, place and time of use. Such mobile usage forces Web developers to evolve or re-invent their engineering methods and techniques to these new requirements and user demands. Web applications have to be tailored to utilize capabilities provided by mobile devices and the Internet of Things (IoT), and to deal with the constraints imposed by mobile technology such as small screens, low (and sometimes expensive) bandwidth, limited browser capabilities, different usage situations, cross- and multi-device use.

We call for papers that address the challenges inherent in a mobile platform, while also exploring the possibilities and challenges related to a platform that is always on, interacts with IoT and the user.
