Apologies if you received multiple copies

MobiCom 2013 Call for Workshops

ACM MobiCom is the premier international conference dedicated to addressing emerging issues in mobile, wireless and ad hoc networking and computing. ACM MobiCom 2013 will hold multiple one or half day workshops on Monday (September 30, 2013) and Friday (October 4, 2013) of the conference week in Miami, FL, USA.

Workshop Proposals

We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to mobile communications, wireless networking, and mobile computing on or before March 1, 2013 to the Workshop Chairs. The ideal workshop proposal should focus on a specific area, be of current interest, and be able to attract a number of high-quality submissions. Proposals on emerging topics guaranteed to generate significant interest in the community will be selected. MobiCom 2013 will likely feature a mix of some returning and some new workshops.

New! Industrial-Track Workshops

This year, in addition to the standard research-oriented workshops, we encourage proposals that are more industry-oriented in nature. Examples include (but not limited to) workshops themed around a specific platform (e.g., Android, Windows 8, iOS) and hands-on experience workshops involving mobile devices, sensor platforms and other hardware. In addition to the requirements outlined below, industrial-track workshop proposals should specifically highlight their relevance to the MobiCom community.

A workshop proposal should be no more than 3 pages, containing at least:

A draft call for papers (as complete as possible)

Names and affiliations of main organizers and tentative composition of the committees

Motivation and rationale for the workshop

List of workshop program components (keynote speaker, panel, paper sessions, etc).

Expected number of submissions and participants

Prior history of this workshop, if any (including # submissions, # accepted papers and # attendees)

If the workshop was previously co-located with other conferences, please indicate the name of the conferences and the years clearly.

Submission Instructions

Please submit your workshop proposal using the EasyChair submission system at:

Please make sure to add the email addresses of all workshop co-chairs to the system for better communication.

Important Dates

Notification of Acceptance: March 8, 2013

Workshop Final Call for Papers due: March 15, 2013

General Information

ACM MobiCom provides basic support for the workshops in the form of registration, publication, publicity, meeting space, audio/video equipment and coffee breaks. To promote flexibility, the details including the format of the workshop and the form of submissions and presentations are left to the organizers of each workshop. Because workshops are meant to foster discussions on emerging topics of interest among the broader SIGMOBILE community, workshops are encouraged to be inclusive rather than exclusive in their solicitation of material. In addition, targeting more interactive forums such as presentations of short papers, panels, and round-table discussions, rather than traditional presentations of full-length papers can be more conducive to successful workshops.

We look forward to your submissions. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about submitting a workshop proposal.
