* Submissions *
Please send your proposal in PDF (only) via e-mail to the workshop/tutorial
Anna Maria Mandalari and Sofie Pollin at
that proposals contain "MobiCom 2023 Workshop/Tutorial Proposal" in the
subject line.
Submissions must be received by the deadline below.

* General Information *
ACM MobiCom provides basic support for the workshops and tutorials in the
form of
registration, publication, publicity, meeting space, audio/video equipment,
lunch, and
coffee breaks. To promote flexibility, the details including the format of
the workshop/tutorial
and the form of submissions and presentations are typically left to the
organizers of each
workshop/tutorial. 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, we encourage
organizers to target more interactive forums such as presentations of short
papers, posters
and demos, panels, and round-table discussions, rather than traditional
presentations of full-
length papers. Workshops/tutorials not attracting enough submissions and
registrations may
be cancelled at the decision of the organizing committee.

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