ACM MobiCom 2014
The 20th Annual International Conference on
Mobile Computing and Networking

Sept. 7-11, 2014 - Maui, Hawaii


*** MobiCom Mobile App Competition ***

MobiCom 2014 is pleased to organize the second Mobile App competition in
conjunction with the main conference. The competition is for novel and
innovative mobile applications utilizing any computing architecture
(stand-alone, client/server, client/proxy/server, peer-to-peer/ad-hoc,
cloud/mobile, others). It is intended as a platform-neutral Contest.
Applications can be developed for, but not limited to, Android, iOS,
Windows Phone, Blackberry OS 10 and HTML5.

All applications must be demonstrated on real devices. Network services
that are part of the application should also be real services embodying
no mock-up components.

Finalists are required to register and attend the conference in order to
be considered by the jury for first, second and third place winners.

Important Dates
App registration deadline: June 30, 2014
Invitations for submission: July 7, 2014
App submission deadline: August 10, 2014
Notifications of Finalists: August 22, 2014

*** MobiCom Posters & Student Research Competition ***

By following its long and fruitful tradition of poster
presentation/discussion, ACM MobiCom 2014 solicits submissions for its
Posters Program. The program will consist of a Posters Session that will
be scheduled during the conference in addition to a three-days Posters
interaction space which will be available from September 8 to September
10, to ensure maximum visibility.

Proposals for poster presentations featuring early research work and
preliminary results are strongly encouraged and solicited. The MobiCom
2014 Poster Session will provide an excellent opportunity for initial
feedback on early research results and for gaining early visibility of
ongoing projects.

To ensure maximum visibility and to garner high interest in the Poster
Session from all MobiCom attendees, each accepted poster will have the
opportunity to deliver a fast elevator pitch. In addition, each
presenter will have the opportunity to have a webpage, which will be
linked to from the MobiCom Posters & SRC program page, to post
additional details including possibly a short video presentation.

ACM MobiCom 2014 will also host an ACM Student Research Competition
(SRC) along side the Posters Program. Students submitting to the MobiCom
2014 Poster Session can opt to have their posters considered also by the
SRC committee, if their posters are accepted. Selected competitors will
receive up to $500 USD for their conference travel, depending on need,
and will earn a chance to compete in the SRC Grand Finals. The winners
will be recognized at the Annual ACM Awards Banquet. Competitors should
be prepared to attend the Poster Session and, if selected for further
competition, to give a short talk about their research projects. Winners
of the MobiCom 2014 SRC will be announced at the conference. The Student
Research Competition is open to graduate and undergraduate students
whose submissions are accepted by the SRC committee.

The SRC competition is fully sponsored by a generous donation from
Microsoft Research.

*** MobiCom Demos & Exhibits ***

Submit cool demos of your research advances or technological
capabilities, and showcase them at MobiCom 2014! We encourage research,
platform, and product demonstrations and exhibits from both academics
and industry.

Demonstrations should be innovative research prototypes, platforms and
applications that are related to the practice of mobile computing or
wireless and mobile networking, in the general areas of interest related
to the MobiCom conference. Exhibits can be advanced product prototypes
or technology breakthroughs that are relevant to the MobiCom audience.
We strongly encourage demos based on novel applications in the domain of
mobile computing and wireless systems. Please refer to the main
conference introduction and CFP for the general areas.

All demos will be considered for the Best Demo Award. A committee will
decide about the winner on-site after evaluating all demo presentations.
