This paper discusses the issue of power conservation on mobile clients, e.g., palmtop, in wireless and mobile environments. It suggests that techniques using signatures are suitable for realtime information filtering on mobile clients. Three signature-based approaches, namely simple signature, integrated signature and multi-level signature schemes, are presented. The cost models for the access time and tune-in time of these three approaches are developed. We show that the multi-level signature method is in general better than the other two methods.
